I don’t know how many of you have undergone the bather-shopping torment yet. But, as people offered to take me along on their bather shopping expedition, I wasn’t going to say no. Change room mirrors don’t lie, but friends do. Which is why you should shop with them. We headed for Geelong. RipCurl, Billabong – all that stuff. Millions upon millions of scary, tie-up-at-the-edges triangle bikinis. There were two pairs of bikinis in the whole of Torquay that weren’t of triangular design. I bought one of them. Cate bought the other. PY bought shorts. Then we all went and ate fish and chips on the beach and drank beer to maximise our curves… Yah!
