Menopause and Swimsuit Season

Welcome to the sisterhood of the shrinking bathing suits!


It’s that time of the year when I get out my box of bathing suits.  I am pretty sure that I accidentally washed them in boiling hot water and dried them on extra high heat before I folded them neatly in this box…………as they all seem to have shrunk! Especially in the tush!   


How am I going to keep my tush inside these bathing suits this season?  Staples and tape anyone????
