Swimsuit Season- What Will You Dare?

Today our temps are going to reach 100 again.  Just last week we were freezing and the heater was still on.  I love Nebraska weather.  It's got me thinking about this time of year again- the dreaded swimsuit season.  You know it's near when women fret and stew over their hips and hair removal routines. 

A few years ago I snagged the hippest swimsuit around.  It's almost one of a kind!  I bought it solely for prosperity and to use in a random history lesson.  I don't know how old it is, but I am guessing it is probably from the 1920's.  I had to laugh when I examined this beauty up close. She is made from a coarse fabric that is dense and resembles a woolen coat. I even noticed she comes with a built-in skirt for those of us who don't want to show our curves.

My old gal has seen her share of days in the sun.  I can tell where she has been darned and repaired.  I think this old gal has seen her last splash in a pool a few decades ago.  Actually, she probably has never graced a swimming pool...

I don't know if I would have the courage to wear a bikini or this nostalgia.  I offered it for a friend to borrow and she balked. She settled for a nice little number from Old Navy.  I will also pass and ponder how lucky we are to have better choices...

On the plus side- if I did wear this antique no one would be looking at my cellulite or stubble.

Are you ready for the swimsuit season?  What will you be wearing?
