Blog friends, I have a question for you. I actually posed it on Twitter a week or two ago, and there was quite a bit of discussion brought up over it.
How many bathing suits/bikinis should a girl own??? What’s the magic number? How many is too many? What is the base number you absolutely must have?
I know that there are probably a number of factors involved in your rationale: where do you live? How often do you need to wear a bathing suit? Obviously, the answers to those questions would probably influence your numbers.
But…I’m just curious…for the sake of science…what your answers are. You see, living in Florida, I think that I might have accumulated a very exorbitant amount of bikinis over time. I usually buy a few new ones each year when I see sales. It’s convenient: the end of summer sales don’t really mean the end of summer for me, since I can visit the beach (almost) year-round. I get a lot of wear out of my bikinis, so I do feel like they are a necessary part of my wardrobe. I actually have an entire dresser drawer devoted to my swimwear:
There are 27 bikinis rolled up there in my drawer…which doesn’t actually account for all of the different combinations I’m able to make with them. I frequently mix and match tops/bottoms depending on my mood. So – I don’t even want to start calculating all of the different possibilities within the drawer…for the sake of this post: I have 27 tops and 27 bottoms. Yowza.
So – tell me: how many pieces of swimwear do you own? What is the “normal” number to have, in your opinion, based on the location you live in?
