By “Popular Demand”……the Hot Pink Vegas Swimsuit

As you may already know, my bag took a different vacation than me and didn’t show up in Las Vegas yesterday. That meant I had to quickly acquire a new swimsuit at the hotel. I knew there were swimsuits at the store “Khardashian Khaos” as I had walked by it on previous trips. I had never previously actually walked into the store. However, I ran in there as soon as I arrived at the hotel yesterday so that my friends and I could enjoy the pool for a little bit. Let’s just say the swim suits in there don’t cover much. I’m not modest under normal circumstances, but I am in my 30’s and have had a kid, so like at least most of my back-half to be covered. Well, I was clearly in the wrong store for that!

The suits didn’t have prices on them, so I was a bit surprised when I checked out at realized the bathing suit was $135! Oh well, that bright pink beauty was now mine. I like to wakeboard, not wear pink lace swimsuits, but you take what you can get sometimes.

I shared my look of happiness with the suit on Twitter already, but due to popular demand (and by that I mean 3-4 people), here is why I think they should discount the swimsuits a bit. It’s missing some of the back side! Of course, the shorts I bought here yesterday that are on with the suit are also missing some length from them. Perhaps it is a Vegas trend. 😉

Oh, and in case you are thinking – that’s not too bad.  I give you Exhibit C.  Pretty much everything covered by the (small) black shorts would be tail hanging out of the swimsuit.  Oh, and these were a size large!  #Vegasfabulous

No way I would ever intentionally take a picture of me actually in the suit. I would scare small children. I apologize for all the small children why I scared at the pool yesterday while actually wearing the swim suit. United, I’m ready for my real clothes now, please!  Oh, and Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to shop for swimsuits in Vegas……(store an extra in your purse)  😉

  1. It’s small, but it doesn’t seem so bad either. Not that I’d know anything about it. I don’t think you’d get any disturbed looks by any other pool goers. However, it does look like they have great potential to ride up and appear to be more thong style as they day progresses.

  2. @Cory, in real life I did wear it, so it wasn’t obscene or anything. It just was very much not my style and felt very silly. You are 100% right about the “ride up” qualities!
    @IPBrian, yup. That part is true. 😉
    @Whiskarina, laughing is the best thing you can do to these types of things!

  3. There is a big mall across from Planet Hollywood. Macys is there.

    But if you buy from the store at the hotel, it’s never inexpensive, beause of the HIGH RENT.

  4. Thanks for the laugh MP! One of the things I love most about your blog is your ability to laugh at yourself and the misadventures that travel often gets us into. Jealous that you are in Vegas free from spouse and kids! Hope you had fun!

  5. MP at least you rolled with the flow. Sometimes our worst travel experiences give us the best stories. Plus, now that you’ve made the pink suit famous, you can sell that bad boy on eBay!

  6. I think your new outfit looks pretty modest by Vegas standards. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks the clothing that pass as, well, clothing, in Las Vegas is on the skimpy side. Where I come from most of the people walking around on the strip would be considered naked. 🙂

    I hope you’re reunited with your stuff ASAP! Love your sense of humor about the whole thing!

  7. Wow, sorry to hear about your lost luggage. When I logged into Twitter earlier today, your tweet (with the first picture in this post) was showing at the top but I did not know what to make of it until I read your last post and this one. I would have been happy to drive you to a Target or Kohl’s.

    I am sure you bought your plane ticket with a credit card, so hopefully you can file a claim with Visa or Mastercard for your lost luggage if it does not show up.

  8. Well, maybe it’ll double for some overpriced lingerie when you get back home.

    You might want to tweet this post and the other one to the carrier. I’m sure that people try to rip them off all the time, so they probably have some pretty strict limits at the call center level. When you’ve got such blog-tastic proof (plus the implied publicity, negative or positive) you might get a more equitable response.
