Daily Prompt: Costume

My swimming costume is a relatively cheap, plain black one-piece made of sleek and stretchy elasticated fabric designed with a racer back. It is practical rather than pretty, boring rather than beautiful, but it allows me to move freely in the water without any uncomfortable restriction or irritation while still effectively covering my modesty.

It is a singular piece of clothing that is perfectly fit for purpose – and it was made and chosen exclusively for swimming in. Not for pouting or posing or parading about in, not for sunning myself in or looking sexy in, but for swimming in, pure and simple. To me the clue is in the name – that’s why it’s called a swimsuit 🙂

    I had to chuckle when I started to read – swimming costume is such a British term and seldom heard in my neck of the woods, where we say bathing suit.
