The Virtual Stylist: Swimwear Madness

In response to last week's post on swimwear, @eyeyqueue contacted me on the Twitters (by the by, she blogs at myveryspicylife.wordpress.com), inquiring about cute swimwear with underwire. She was not only preaching to the choir, she made a great point; so this post is dedicated to her on behalf of all of us who need a little assistance in "keeping the girls in the corral".

I can't tell you how much I appreciate this post -- and these suits. Living in Florida, and a self-proclaimed "water baby", I love to swim and enjoy the spoils of the sun and surf, regardless of my size.

The key to feeling confident in any situation, including poolside, is to know exactly how to dress yourself. For me, dressing myself always includes playing up my best (a-hem) features.

I have been known to wear old bras under my swimsuits -- just to get the right heave ho I need. But I'm dying to find something that's young, stylish, flattering and supportive without having to sacrifice support. And, honey, soft cups are none of the above!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I absolutely LOVE what you do!
