Bikini breakdown.

Why in god’s name you would sell a bathing suit top in sizes small, medium, and large, BUT NOT x-large when you sell the bottoms in XL???

I got a really cute bikini from Target, which I had to order online as the color I wanted was not available in stores. My other bikini top from the same brand is a large, so I thought I was safe, but alas, in this style top, the large is woefully inadequate. Like ridiculous amount of side boob and possible nipple exposure inadequate. Even my boob-loving husband conceded that the top might not be the best option for me. Cue return.

When I checked the website to explore my return/exchange options, I was really disappointed to see that I can’t get an XL. But I like the turquoise bottoms. So now I will have to crawl the internet for another cute black and white top that will complement the portion of the bathing suit that successfully covers my backside.

Wish me luck. Grrr…..

  1. i feel your swimsuit anger. i have to buy mix and match sets because my top half is way bigger than my bottom half. i’ve seen so many cute sets this year that can’t be broken up. (i’ve tried. they check at the register. i play dumb. it sucks.) i usually wear a one piece and be done with it. i did manage to find some cute bikini pieces at old navy but still feel like they don’t hold the girls in as much as i’d like. it’s a never ending battle every summer.
