Pool in the Morning

Just arrived. I went to check the mail and found a package waiting for me at my door. If the mail lady knocked, I didn't hear her. The suit is made in China. I think the Chinese sizes run smaller than US sizes. So, I'm going to lay claim to a size 10. I got it on. It's a bit tight in the shoulders, but it fits. The other size 12 suit I have waiting to give away, is bigger than this one. No more tank and shorts for the pool. My suit is here and I am very happy.

Yes, there is a sizing difference between theirs and ours but that is a really pretty suit and you are going to look spectacular in it. Happy for you

I do look spectacular in it. Thank you. I'll be watching where the suit is from, from now on.

I have not made it to the pool in ages. I have a brand new suit. If you get to a point that you are not going down sizes, a good brand to get is Swim and Sweat. I get them online and they wear fabulously well. Come in lots of sizes and designs. Chlorine resistant fabric.

That's good to know, thanks. I might be at my final size. Though I still have a lot of weight to lose.

I have found out that sizes can mean anything. That is why I find hard to shop online. I have a friend who is always giving me blouses. Some are perfect and others, the same size, could be fine for an elephant

I'm finding the same thing depending on the brand of clothes. So far, I've been fortunate to get suits that fit. It's only the last two that were on the tight side.

@just4him That´s why I always try on my bathing suits. And when they fit, no matter how expensive they are, I buy them. Then I take such good care of them that they last for many years.

@marguicha My suits don't last very long, mostly because I grow out of them - they become too big or the chlorine eats a hole in them or the color fades fast. Which is why I've had so many suits in the past year - they've gotten too big. I like that a lot. When I get to my final size, I will look for one that will last longer than the ones I've had. I know 100% polyester lasts for years. So far, I haven't found that type. They all have a percentage of polyester, but not 100%.

I'm jealous! I want to go in the pool in the morning, although not in this kind of weather.

I haven't seen you in forever. I hope you're doing okay. Are you back? I swim in an indoor pool. I wouldn't swim in this weather either if it were outdoors.

@just4him Oh, I don't have access to an indoor pool at the moment, but that sounds wonderful. I love swimming, and I would do it year round if I could. Also, it is fantastic exercise. I'm doing alright, I guess. I have been better, and I have been worse. I'm not really back. I stopped in here yesterday to answer a call, and I have been making the rounds. I really need to do some work, though, so I probably should get off here. This place tends to be a distraction, and I don't need any more of those at the moment.

Awesome. I wish I were a size 12 but in my case I am a size 18, that's ok though.

I was a 20 when I started this food program and diet. I'm very happy to be in a 12 now.

Wish I could get in a pool and swim, even though my suit might now be too Big. Just to be able to relax or even in a Hot Tub seems heavinly about now.

It does seem like Chinese sizing is different then ours. I hope it being snug in the shoulders doesn't make it uncomfortable to swim. Maybe as you wear it it'll stretch out a little bit. Our mail lady never knocks if she has a package that doesn't fit in the mailbox she just leaves in outside the door.

It's comfortable, which is a blessing. I'd hate her to leave it outside the door so others could take it. I live in a secure building, so she leaves it at my door or hands it to me.
