Swimsuit

I recently found a very cute swimsuit at Target. It was even on clearance, so I just had to try it on because I am always in need of suits. It was just a top, which was great since I wear board shorts on the bottom to help with the unsightly mom hips. Anyway, I tried it on and it really was so cute...no cleavage showing, long enough to cover muffin tops. It seemed to fit all the common criteria of a great thing including the price, since it was on clearance. So I threw it in the cart and away I went, ever so happy with the last suit purchase of the summer season.
We were staying at our timeshare with hot tubs, so when I got there, I pulled off the tag, and went for a little dip in the tubs. Yes, it even looked pretty good in water although a little baggy on the stomach. But that was even better, I wouldn't have to worry about all those ab exercises I have been meaning to do all summer. The next day I was doing a little clean up, and picked up the tags off from the night stand to throw in the trash...WHAT? A MATERNITY SWIM TOP! Yes, I had purchased myself a lovely maternity top. And although I am not pregnant, nor plan to be anytime soon, I will continue to wear my ...Oh, so cute top!
I think I better get real serious about returning to the gym!

Oh that is great! Sometimes Maternity stuff is just longer. You are one of the last people that I could imagine a maternity top fitting! :)

Sorry, there is no extra fat or muffin top to be found on your body. You look great in anything.

That is funny. Bifocals what who needs those. Thanks for catching my mistake. I fixed my mistake. You are right I can not ask for better.

That's hilarious! But I'm a little jealous that I shopped at Target for a maternity suit top and couldn't find one and you get the perfect swimsuit there that unintentionally happens to be maternity?!

'Bet it was still way cute though! (And really haven't you noticed how super duper skin- tight they make maternity clothes nowadays? They'd probably fit the pregnant mother's primary grade-aged daughter! But, we do really miss you at the gym--even if you don't need it!)
