Listen-- it does not matter how much you spend on a white bathing suit.
It does not matter how much money it costs, that you paid retail, or that it is from a high end clothier.
It does not matter how many compliments you get on your white bathing suit, that it is triple lined, how comfortable it is, or how good it makes you feel about your post-baby-body.
When that white bathing suit gets wet- it is suddenly transparent, those compliments stop and you are no longer comfortable.
Especially in front of your brother and mother.
Money well spent? Ithinknot.
