Most women over fifty would rather have a root canal than shop for a new bathing suit. Who wants to see a fresh crop of cellulite in a three-way mirror? Or share their figure flaws with a perky, size two saleswoman? It’s enough to make you hide under a beach towel.
Fortunately, swimwear designers are finally getting it. In addition to using special fabrics that hold the tummy in (as if you were wearing two pairs of extra-strength Spanx™), they are offering fuller cuts that flatter mature figures. It’s as if they are saying, “Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!”
