Now You Decide

Well you all may remember the bathing suit debacle of last week.. my coveted suit did finally arrive...


Even on sale this suit is 100 bucks.. which is fine as I feel I've earned it.. but I don't want to keep it unless there is some kind of consensus that it looks the best. Go HERE to review my old suits.

I LOVE it! I like it much better than your other suits. Definitely worth the money. In fact, I'm thinking about getting one for me.

Robin said...

Me again. Seriously, I think I am ordering that. Does it run pretty true to size? I love that it actually covers the rear end. (That's MY problem area.)

Mrs. Furious said...

here are my sizing tips... this top is the 5.. 32/34 D (I'm wearing 34D bras...but just) the band is pretty tight..but I think that is because they are expecting you to do something athletic in it. But I'm almost overfowing so if you are a full D you might want to go up. I don't know if you care but even with above arm stretching the top stays pretty close to the bottoms (good for me). These are the extra small bottoms. I had the smalls before(same height but wider). I think they fit pretty in line with standard underwear fit.

Mrs. Furious said...

oh it also has a skirt version bottom, which I tried.. that's not where I need the coverage so it just added width where I don't have it.

Mrs. Furious said...

okay I measured my ribcage at my bra band 31".. the suit 26.7" (maybe that's why it feel tight?.. but obviously it stretched.. I mean there was no buldge over) I might order the next size top 36/38 D.. but I fear that will be huge! They send you exchanges for free shipping so no worries there!
my hips are 33.5" (yeah I'm kind of a tube) so the extra smalls fit best which was in line with the measurements they gave on the site.

Mrs. Furious said...

okay I'm keeping the top they are out of the next size up. They only have the 32/34 C, D or DD left in the red. They have a black in the 36/38 D. Search for "victorian scroll".

Robin said...

So helpful! Thanks. I wear a 32C, so I feel confident that the size 3 top will fit. (my ribcage is 29.5) I may order a couple of bottoms and return what I don't like. I think a medium. How tall are you? I am 5' 7" so i am thinking that the tankini may show a little tummy. Not necessarily a problem for me. Pregnancy was pretty kind to my tummy. Not so much on my boobs. *sigh* I may even try the reg. bikini top.

marie said...

I love the colour of the top. If only I had the boobage to fill it out...*sigh*

Mrs. Furious said...

oh
i'm short 5'3.. but I have a regular torso so that might not be so much of a problem. I measured the 3.. 25.5" at the ribcage. Love that bikini top. They do say to order up a cup size for modesty.. I will say it is very low cut and I was big time spilling out of the C.

If you wear a size 6 underwear get the medium.

Mrs. Furious said...

marie,
I didn't have boobs before kids either.. there is still hope!

Cara said...

I really love this suit on you! You are looking hot! :-)

Mrs. Furious said...

cara
thanks! yeah much better than my other ones. I guess you have to pay for a better fit!

Bri said...

This suit is the winner - looks great on you!

Tina said...

I've had 4 kids and still don't have boobs. There's no hope for me. LOL

Tina said...

IMHO, and this is just my opinion, I like the brown/black (hard to tell the color) one at the bottom of the other post. I think that one looks best.

Mrs. Furious said...

bri,
thanks

tina,
brown one.. seriously? I gotta say I don't fel as comfortable in that one.. although it was free..

Heather said...

Agreed. I really like it -- the colors are veddy flattering. Keep!

Mrs. Furious said...

okay the wrong sized ones are hitting the mailbox.. this one stays!

Erin said...

SUCH an awesome bathing suit - well worth the money! Rewarding yourself with clothes is so much better than, oh....chocolate or cookies, or whatever.

eurydice said...

I like it a lot - the colours are really nice.

Mrs. Furious said...

erin,
yes I couldn't agree more (on the clothes over food that is)



eurydice,
I love the way you Canadians say colours!

Mrs. Furious said...

Thanks Melyni!

Deb said...

You deserve a do-over on the vacation so that you can be seen wearing this in ALL your holiday shots. That looks AWESOME!

Sarah said...

It looks Fantastic Mrs F!! Definitely a keeper.

Mary said...

You look great! This new one is by far my favorite -- a definite keeper. Now you need to plan another vacation so you can show it off!

Mrs. Furious said...

Sarah & Mary,
Yeah! I'm glad everyone is pretty much in agreement!And yes Mary I do have a long time to wait until I can put it to use...hmmm

Deb,
lol.. wouldn't it be hilarious if our christmas card was just a picture of me in my suit?! Oh.. I assure you that would annoy/befuddle some people I wouldn't mind annoying/befuddling!

soap box girl said...

I like the $100 suit the best, too. However, I think the second suit (the red one on the previous post) is also really great on you. Either one looks good, so pick the one you feel best in.

kenady said...

I love it! and you don't look like you're about to overflow:)

Mrs. Furious said...

Soapbox girl,
thanks

kenady,
well.. as much as empty fluffy b'feeding boobs can...
But if you have actual full boobs this top is not going to work.. unless they are fake.. in which case you won't actually need the support ;)

And then there were 3 said...

delurking here found you from mommyvents I think, love this suit looks fantastic on you you have inspired me to get off my ass and move, Im not so sure Imm brave enough to post pics but hey I work on the courage thing.

Julie said...

I Love it on you! It is the best one of the bunch.

I am still dealing with sick kid so I have not been able to read your posts and comments, but I HAD to let you know you look AWESOME, girl!

Mrs. Furious said...

and then there were 3,
hey thanks for delurking! I'm glad I'm motivating someone... since I'm not motivating myself much these past few days! The courage thing: I find it is very easy to post pics if I just do it spontaneously.. I do question my sanity afterwards.. but then of course it is too late! But I do recommend it since nothing is more rewarding then being able to see your progress... or more motivating when you don't like what you see!

Mrs. Furious said...

Julie,
yucky yuck. I hope the puke phase has passed!

Baby is now sick and has been crying incessantly all day.. thank god I can still type with one hand! ;)

katieo said...

Oh yeah. This is definitely the winner.

Mrs. Furious said...

Katieo,
done!

why even though I've been suffering with the onset of some stomach virus did I feel the need to order sweet & sour chicken? Like the deep fried aspect is going to help matters!

Jasmine Star said...

I definately like it the best!

Shirls said...

I really love this one, hands down a keeper!

Mrs. Furious said...

thanks guys! yeah I feel 100% better in it :)

Gypsy Family said...

Oh my gosh, you look freaking amazing. MUST keep suit. The others look good too, but I really like this one, and yes, you SO totally deserve it!!

Mrs. Furious said...

gypsy,
thanks!

I sent Mr F to get the pin... I question whether it is right or not but it is a xmas Epcot passholder pin. Also we have M's b'day gifts. Maybe next week we can have a playdate?

Gypsy Family said...

playdate = yes!!

etbroderick said...

Nice! Finally catching up on your older posts. Have been quite overwhelmed of late. Funny--I just asked you about your boobs ina previous comment but since I am reading backwards in order of time, I just came across a relevant discussion in this very post! LOL. You look fabulous. And my other favorite is still the red so you should keep 'em both. And I, my dear, should get my fat ass on a treadmill.

Mrs. Furious said...

yes boobs deflate. since I'm still b'feeding it depends when I've last fed how they look! I went from a barely B to a D.. and even after all the b'feeding of Kid I ended at a C.. but with less perk.

etbroderick said...

Well--you are a babe. ;-)
