Next weekend, my friend is going to be having a Pool Party.
Ahh yes, the dreaded pool party, not because of the cellulite (which is totally non-existent)but because I need a -drum roll-
Now now! Don't choke from rolling on the floor laughing (rofl anyone?) It's not uncommon to see a hijabi looking for a decent swimsuit. Amirite?
Oh whatever! Although it's an all girls event and I'm trying to get my friend to forbid cameras after we get into the pool, I'm still looking for an modest swimsuit for my more often, public pool excursions. Or the beach. You know how you're always the one in the corner of the pool glaring at all the kiddies and guys able to swim without any inhibitions while you froth and bubble in rage. Or sunburn.
Which is why I'm trying to find a decent swimsuit UNDER $100. I don't need to spend a couple month's allowance on a swimsuit I'll only use during the summer -pfft-!(And we wonder why a lot of hijabis don't swim in public)
I mean, I'm not in dire need of a modest swimsuit, but having one in the closet is always great for the random trips to the beach. Even though I'd probably never step two feet outside in them.
Seriously, all the modest swimsuits out there just don't seem to be as.. good. Ya know?
They're either too tight

or they're just plain ugly.

Can I get an 'AMEN'? Or not, but I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from.
But some swimsuits can look so good and have the worst 'tops/hat/deflatedballoon' type hijabs.

Like, what IS a hijood?! And why would I put it on my head? Sorry Ahiida, I love the concept of your suits but they're just not my style. Wearing a balloon on my head is way too humiliating. Even in private.
But not all muslims swimsuits are defeating in their purpose or lacking in taste.

Even these decent ones that I would purchase are over $100. Maybe it pays to have good quality? Probably, but I don't see why a lycra hood has to cost $15.00
Call me cheapo or Miss Greedy Pants (actual nickname, Miss Grouchy Pants thank you very much) but I'll stick to shorts and a shirt. Again.
How disappointing muslim fashionistas! Can't you at least make a decent modest swimsuit under $50? (Total, not each, and if any of you debuting swimwear designers happens to make it cheap, you can contact me and I'll be seeing discounts coming my way for inspiring you ;D -cough- -cough- Oh dear, I have a cold!)
Well I'm done for now, it's almost midnight but I spent an hour writing this post for you lovely readers. And I better get more comments!
