On page 40 of this month’s catalog one will find this caption among one piece bathing suits:
“Forget the pre-vacation crash diet. Our one-piece wonders come in cuts that complement with ruching in all the right places.”
Although I would usually order one of these pretty bathing suits, I refuse. How can I buy a product from a company that tells me I need to have less of me or cover my body up!?! I can’t give my money to a company promoting the idea that dieting = permission to be an uncovered me. Just to spite them and all the other bad body image promoters, I will be wearing a 2 piece bathing suit sans dieting all summer.
