Today I bought the girls swimsuits.
My Mom and I left the boys with my Dad and took the girls to Walmart for their fittings. When you shop this early in the season they actually have 2 in most sizes. Try shopping in the middle of the season and forget it... all the sizes are picked over. We started off with size 4/5 since the girls are 4 and half seems logical. Now, their suits from last year never quite fit correctly. They were just too big so I thought they'd fit this year, but no. They are baggy in the body, but too short in the length.
So, this is how the fittings went...
Size 4/5 two piece: Way to big
Size 3/4 two piece: Too big
Size 24M one piece: Too short in length
Size 3T one piece: Too short in length
Size 4T one piece: Perfect length, but too baggy in body and leg opening
Size 24M two piece: FINALLY, the perfect fit.
I can't believe I had to buy 24M swimsuits for my 4 and half year old girls!!! Needless to say, they look adorable. I was sooooo glad I had my Mom with me given all the trips back and forth for new sizes. THANKS MOM anddddddd THANKS DAD for staying home with boys. I've just got too much on my plate right now and it was a HUGE help!!!
