Good Stuff From Mall Stores: A Swimsuit That Sucks You In At Lands' End
May 7, 2009
What: SwimShape Tank Swimsuit, $89.50
Why: When I think of Lands' End, I think of Mrs. Murphy in charge of our car pool who would pick us up everyday from school wearing her yellow raincoat – even when the sun was shining – and her very distinct saggy bottom mom jeans. We would go to her house and eat our 4pm snack at the kitchen table where, without fail, there would be a Lands' End catalog open on the counter.
Miraculously, this childhood memory did not completely scar me and I recently mustered the courage to check out their swimwear upon the request of a friend who swore the suits were attractive.
Well, she was right. I found this retro red halter SwimShape suit that's not only cute, it's like SPANX for the pool. Seriously, the suit will suck you in like no other. It took me a good minute to pull it on, but once everything was in, I looked pretty good for being allergic to the gym.
