Column: Jen the beach bum? Maybe
I haven't owned a swimsuit since I was in high school.
That was 10 years ago.
Sad, I know. But I never was the girl who wanted to wear -- or who could fit into -- that yellow polka-dot bikini.
In college, my battle with tight-fitting materials that only covered my private parts intensified. Sure, bathing suit material stretches, but it can only hide so much.
Pool parties, the beach, tubing down the river were all out of the question for me.
