cute polo shirts How to pick the right swimsuit
The first day of school, I ordered my Halloween costume. I was late this year. But while fantasizing about bloody faces, screaming vampires and being chased with a chainsaw, a big part of me is in denial that summer is ending.
I reached out to my BFF for consolation, knowing she would be suffering the end of summer sadness harder than me. Brittany “Secretly Wishes to be Pushed in a Pool” Anas (that’s her full name) used to write for the Daily Camera. She’s made a career out of following the sunshine.
Brittany reminded me that while fall may be creeping in, now is the best time to buy discounted summer clothes. Shorts, open toed shoes, floppy sun hats and swimsuits are typically marked 50 70 percent off as soon as Labor Day hits.
Instead of wondering whether you should wear white after Labor Day (answer: Sure, yes, who cares? Unless you’re playing bunco in 1932), this week is time to ask yourself where you can shop to restock next spring and summer’s entire wardrobe for under $20.
So you did a lot of swimming this summer. Good job. But all that chlorine might do a number on your swimsuit. You’ll be swimming in swimsuits in the clearance section. (Be prepared to play a little Marco Polo to find matching separates, though). But those reports never seem to truly dive deep enough into this complex issue. So Brittany and I banded together to create the final, definitive expert take on the topic.
It’s never too late in the season to get swimsuit ready. Because even though Boulder Reservoir just closed Swim Beach, indoor pools exist, and winter is one of the most popular times of year to go on a beach vacation.
Choosing a swimsuit can be challenging. Here’s how to pick the perfect suit for you: Look at the swimming suits. Buy one that you like.
Tips: If you like the color blue, look for a swimming suit that contains the color blue. If you like lace, look for a suit with lace on it. You will want to make sure you have both a swimsuit top and a swimsuit bottom.
If you cannot decide what your favorite color is or if you like lace, consider attending the Strawberry Hot Springs after dark, when you aren’t required to wear a swimsuit, thereby making you swimsuit ready by simply being swim ready. No purchase necessary.
Wave goodbye (?) to all of the other articles with cliche subheads, bad puns and dysfunctional advice suggesting you can only wear a swimsuit if your body looks a certain way, or you should choose a swimsuit that “hides” your “flaws.” Swimming is a sport. Swimming is fun. Choosing a swimsuit shouldn’t be any more stressful than choosing ski pants or running shoes; pick something functional to accompany your adventures, not feed your insecurities.
