For me and my kids, this is the summer of the beach! My youngest is now old enough that she won't eat the sand and the two kids can immerse themselves in a day of sand castle building and splashing that all of us enjoy. At the beginning of summer, I bought two cheap tankinis at Target. I committed a cardinal sin and didn't even try them on. I liked the patterns so decided to just hope for the best. They were fine, but just not amazing. The tops were too loose and the padding in the chest would twist and turn with every wash. After some Facebook discussions and recommendations, I decided to give Lands' End swimsuits a try. I even ordered a bikini! They were more than my Target suits, but everyone I talked to gave them two thumbs up for fit and style. I even did a little online chat with their customer service to get some size advice! They arrived today and fit like a dream. They aren't for the teen crowd, but they aren't so dowdy that I feel like the middle aged mom that I am! A solid five star rating!
