Strawberry and Orange

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.

In My Closet: Esther Williams Retro Swimsuit

A few weeks ago I placed an order on my all-time favourite website, ModCloth, and a couple days later I had my goodies - one of which was this Esther Williams Retro Swimsuit in Emerald.  And let me tell you, I am in love.

I have had multiple colours of this swimsuit in my wishlist for well over a year now and I really wish I had ordered one much earlier.  The suit covers quite modestly but still has shape and appeal.  The cut is darling, with the sweetheart halter and the ruching at the bust, and it is definitely figure-flattering.

The website says "runs small - please size up", but make sure you read the measurements because I actually went up two sizes from my normal (I am ususally a 4 and I ordered an 8) and it fits like a glove. Also, make sure you use measurements as you are now (measure right before you choose your size, just to be safe) - do not go off of measurements from last month - the sizes are so close that even a bit of a measurement change up or down could send you into a different size.

So far I have only worn this swimsuit to lounge around my backyard, but I cannot wait until I have an excuse to wear it in more of a public setting.  If only I didn't have to work days...

Have you tried this Esther Williams Swimsuit or any other swimsuits from ModCloth?  What did you think?  Will you try any?  Let me know!
