Who Wore it Best?

I am one of those women who loves the beach but does not love the inevitable task of  finding the perfect swim suit. However, you would not know  from observing my swim suit collection that has over forty different pieces of tops and bottoms.

Daily Mail UK

It is on this vacation I needed a little confidence boost and purchased several more swim suits to add to my collection.

The first day I opted for the flowered halter and  frolicked in the waves like a haphazard mermaid flailing about in the water.

A woman swam over , “Nice suit!”


It’s when I looked closer she was wearing the exact same bikini that I was wearing!

People magazine flashed  before my very eyes with the title Who Wore it Best? The picture of us side by side laid out on the spread for the whole world to see only to critique who rocked the  halter style best. I could hear the voice in my head hitting a full conversation between Tim Gunn and the Go Fug Yourself Girls.

It was at moment a wave hit me and knocked me to my senses!

We then  both looked at each other knowing we were both thinking the same thing and began to giggle.

She laughed,” It looks like we both have great taste!”

I exclaimed, “Let me guess Le Vie En Rose!”

“Yes! You are curvy like me isn’t it the best place to shop for swim suits!”

“Yes! It is!”

It was with that we did a high-five for the curvy gals! Who cares who wore it best? We were both in the waves having fun and enjoying the sun!

Have you ever shown up to a party in the same attire as another?

  1. I had a former co-worker who liked my jacket so much she went out and bought one. Then lo and behold one day we both wore it to work. It is hard when you live in a small town to be different when most of your clothes are bought at a few major stores. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Loved this post. I have not had the pleasure and/or displeasure of wearing the same thing as someone else at the same time. 🙂

  3. Last year I was going to church in a town where my parents lived. I was wearing a jacket that was pink and flowery and 5 + years old. A younger woman with young children was wearing the same jacket. My thought was that maybe I should update my wardrobe 🙂

  4. very true belle. we do tend to compare ourselves with the others. what they wear, how they look, their education, their house, their spouse, etc etc. it’s as if we are in a competition all the time.

    i enjoyed how you wrote this one, it amazes me how you are able to pass on the message in such a short and interesting way. salute to you 😀

    As for me, I tend to get most of my clothes stitched by my sister (who has a small business) so it’s very unlikely that there would be someone else wearing the exact same dress 😀
    but yes, the few times I buy ready-made shirts, I do come across my mirror image – and “who wore it best?” attitude creeps in 😉

  5. Yes, one time I wore the same shirt as one of my co-workers. I was a little embarrassed, but what can you do, right? It wasn’t like I was going to go all the way home to change. I felt worse for her, though, because every time she saw me throughout the day, she would say “Oh my gosh, you look so much better in this shirt than I do!” Of course that wasn’t true, but that’s how she perceived it. And, I noticed that she never wore the shirt again. 😦

  6. Timm Gunn (or, as I like to call him, Saint Gunn) would’ve said that you both wore it best, followed by a heartfelt group hug.
    Even though the whole while, it would’ve actually been he who wore it best.
