Does Bathing Suit Shopping Stress You Out?

04/27/2007 at 11:00 AM ET

As our office fills up with racks of itsy-bitsy bikinis and photos of celebrities, like Lindsay Lohan, looking amazing on beach vacations flood our pages, my stress level keeps rising! Sure, if I looked like Lindsay in a bikini (all nine of them) I’d be more than happy to hit the stores. But in my current state of, uh, not quite summer-ready, the thought of trying on string bikinis in fluorescent lighting with unflattering mirrors makes me want to run and hide. For now, I am investigating more cute coverups like Cameron’s, until the gym becomes more of a daily reality. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

My mid-rift is not perfect but I’d put on a bikini. Hey, no one is perfect.

The most stressing is not the shape I am in. I am fortunate to be in great shape (work out a regularly, watch what I eat). Ok my boobs are not as perky as they once wear.
But I am kind of vampire white and don’t tan. I wish in what swimwear to choose they would include advice for very fair people.
Oh and making sure there is no hair poking out. You know how it is after a winter of lapsing on your bikini hair removal.

I get so exicted when the sun is actually shining in the morning. The thing that doesn’t make me excited is thinking about bikinis. I want to get in better shape for summer, but for some reason can’t find the motivation between a busy schedule. Does anyone have any tips that can help me make it to the gym in the morning?

I think girls should stop obbesising over being 5″7 and 60 pounds it’s not attractive what so ever and is it really worth dieing for. I think we should all accept are bodies but still remain healthy and then we’ll all have nothing to worry about during swim suit season, I love it an look forward for it and guess what I’m not super skinny I actually have curves and I love it don’t let people get you down cause curves are sexy!!
