  1. AH HAHAHA. Having been in a similar-but-not-identical situation once (why on earth did my mother let me buy a WHITE swimsuit when I was 16? Did she not know what happens to white fabric when it gets wet??) I can totally relate to this.

  2. I loved how you kept her in the air the whole time, even while she sees the suit top below.

  3. Oh no! Reminds me of the time my friend went down a water slide and wound up with no swimsuit by the time she hit the water!
