I found this on my friend Susan’s Facebook page a while back. I hope she won’t mind my sharing it. I laughed when I read it. I’m sure many can relate. I hope you laugh too as you read. Enjoy and share so we know we’re not alone! The “Joy” of Buying a Bathing Suit When I was a child the bathing suit for the mature figure was boned, trussed and reinforced, not so much sewn as engineered. They were built to hold back and uplift, and they did a good job. Today’s stretch fabrics are designed for the prepubescent girl with a figure carved from a potato chip.
