Leave it to the Professionals.....

Recently, I bought this for an upcoming holiday.
Now that I've hit 40, I feel like I want to be a bit 'modest' when it comes to swimwear.

I'm sure a lot of you still have the confidence of youth and just bare it all, but as for me I just don't want everyone and sundry spying my orange peel......Plus, that whole pinup 1950's vibe is so up my alley.

The swimsuit I purchased is just amazing; Heather makes everything to order and it fits like a glove.
She even made the costumes for a Glee Episode, how cool is that! (see the second pic in the listing)


I was so in love with it that I wanted another, but the budget only stretches so far, so, I made a swimskirt to go with a tankini that I already have in black.
It is made from a scuba stretch from Lincraft.
But, there was no way I was going to model this for blogland!!! Ha ha.
 

I'll leave the swimsuit modelling to the pro's.
