Liz sent us a sweet note, saying: I read your blog posts everyday to find some new and fun. I never thought I submit my story for tips, but I am really need of help.
I am getting married at the end of May and then heading to Hawaii in June. I am 5'7 and 165lbs. I've have been trying to find a swimsuit that cover my stomach and "lovehandles." I want to wow my new husband with a sexy but flattering suit. Any ideas around $40-$75?
Thanks for your help.
Hey Liz! Congrats on the wedding! I picked out some suits that vary between a tankini and one piece style to help you feel sexy and comfortable on your honeymoon. If you're looking for a two piece, I would suggest something with a small skirt or overlay to help out with 'lovehandles', though those were pretty hard to come by in your price range. No matter what you wear, enjoy your time with your hubby and have fun! - Robin
