  1. The best item was the one-piece black number with the waist design. Why? As we age, we tend to look more rectangular from the front, so you can trick the eye by manufacturing your waist, as this swimsuit shows. Good choice, Deb.”

    Caution: those tankini suits may not be a good choice for those with a gut. A high-waisted brief (retro style) with a supportive bikini top would be better.

    1. Who knew Mother Nature would take “being square” literally? Agree with the tankini assessment. Unless they are high wasted and have a “hold you in” feature, the bottoms inevitably roll down and highlight the belly pudge. All of us have some pudge at this age!!

  2. Jergens self-tanner is a great way to add glow. I also like BB cream to cover imperfections – it’s a lifesaver. The first swimsuit is terrific….what a figure flatterer!

  3. Great recommendations! I tend toward tankinis if I am out all day since going to the ladies’ room is much easier. :)

  4. Love this! I just got my first pair of Jack Rogers sandals, and I can’t wait for warmer temps to break them in. Love your blog!

  5. I wish people would be more accepting of their natural skin color-there is nothing wrong with pale, untanned skin-it; it certainly is better looking than the Oompa-Loompa orange shade of people who overdo it on self-tanner! And let’s not forget that if you want to go in the pool or the ocean, your faux glow will be gone when you come out…

    1. Hi KP, Nothing wrong with untanned skin. I haven’t been in the sun since I was 17, when I got a stern warning from a dermatologist about skin cancer after too much sun and a nasty burn. I’m so glad I stayed away and saved my skin. In summer, I sometimes want a touch of color on my legs when I wear a dress. In those instances, I use Juergens self-tanner. It is my favorite because it gives me a soft, light glow instead of a fake dark, orange-brown tan. I highly recommend it. It’s great for fair gals like me. Cheers, Deborah

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
