will I ever learn?


I'm a sucker. I've been had. I was deceived. They pulled a fast one on me. For some reason (laziness?) I ordered 3 bathing suits from the Victoria Secret catalog for my upcoming yoga retreat. And...they just might be the most hideous things to ever arrive at my doorstep. Not joking. Here's what I can't understand - they're great brands that I usually buy - Vitamin A & Vix - and wouldn't you know, they sure looked great on those uber models, but everything down to the color and fabric are just....super cheesy. Please remind me never to do this again.

Vix...really?!!! I love their suits and find they fit great but this sucks to hear. I hope they aren't cheapening themselves....

I also really love Haverhill suits: http://www.haverhilldesigns.com/welcome.html

Good luck and have fun on the yoga retreat. How relaxing!

i had a similar experience last year. i bought the most simple black bikini ever and it was large enough to cover the body of a cabbage patch doll. never again.

Oh no! I hope you find some nice suits for your trip, and thanks for reminding me not to order from VS.

That's really unfortunate! I just bought one of their cheaper suits..the mix & match bikinis. It works fine for me. I bought the triangle top (which is more bandeau than triangle) and tanga bottoms.

i bought a super cute striped bikini with an adjustable top that i actually love. it was the first thing i've bought from them in about 20 years, and it was really cheap. of course i saw it on a blog first...and then i bought a pair of pajamas i also love and a silk chemise. i hope you have better luck next time!

I bought a sweater from VS once that looked gorgeous in the catalog. On me, so ridiculous. Sigh. Is that bathing suit one you ordered? Because it looks so good on that model. Pictures are so deceiving. That's their whole evil tactic!

i ordered what i thought to be very cute items form VS years ago, and what arrived in my mail box was more like a hookers haven. never again.
