Meg here! I was starting to grow tentacles to my computer chair and it is so lovely out. A fabulously warm perfect SoCal day! I grabbed my pal Solero and we headed to work poolside in Beverly Hills. Right now we are sitting at the pool at the Mosaic Hotel enjoying the weather and staring at the pool. I like it here because it is so quiet and serene and you really can get a lot done.
Solero: Do you ever buy swimsuits online? Can you ask the Megheads about that. Do they ever do it? If they do, do they have any tips on how to get a good one? Whenever I see the cute ones in the Victoria Secret Catalog I want to order one but it stinks that there’s no way to try them on.
Meg: Hmm, now that I think about it I don’t think I have ever ordered a swimsuit online. I usually always go to try it on first.
So what about you ladies? Do you do it? Any tips?
The tips I have heard are to go the mall after 7pm on a Monday because it will be pretty empty and you can take your time and no one is rushing you along. Also, bring a friend, not a friend that is going to point out ever flaw but one that will give you a kind and honest opinion.
I bought a great one piece that’s black and low-cut and I really paid for it, it has some shirring in the tummy area so it’s still sexy yet allows me to breathe. I think it ran me around $200.00 That’s my pool party, bbq-people are going to see me suit.
Other then that, I’m all about Loehmann’s and Marshall’s. I hate I paid so much for one bathingsuit but you know what? I’ve totally gotten my money out of it and there is no price for a little confidence!
OK-I just found the picture of myself in the suit in question. It was a “Malibu” pool party so of course there were photographers there and there was a step-and-repeat board.
Here’s me in my $200 confidence suit. It works well enough if I just throw on heels and shorts I can go deckside. What you don’t wear heels to the beach?
I know, I know-It’s LA!!
Spill it! How do you do our bathingsuit shopping? Where and give some tips!
