Bathing Suits and Ice Cream: Strange Bedfellows

Relaxing in my MiracleSuit
Low-fat frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and the like all have their place, but nothing beats premium, full-fat ice cream.

This is a rare indulgence for many women, particularly since in summer, when you are crazing ice cream the most, you are usually baring more skin, and more self-conscious.

I found it particularly ironic to be at the MomTrends party where the ultra premium Adirondack Creamery  ice cream gave samples to women bloggers checking out bathing suits.

But those bathing suits, by MiracleSuit magically make you look better - 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds the tag claims.

Here’s the thing - the suit delivers. I don’t know how a bathing suit can be so comfortable and make everyone in one look so good, but when I saw another mom wearing a MiracleSuit, I thought, “I’ll have what she’s having” (thank you to When Harry Met Sally).

Of course, one spoonful of that Adirondack Creamery ice cream and you  might be making indecent moans a la Meg Ryan. The upstate New York ice cream makers keep thing simple, with just a dozen flavors and a few seasonal specialties.
Earl’s Chocolate Peanut Butter is how I roll; there’s also an amazing vanilla with toffee called Barkeater, a coffee flavored High Peak Perk and a banana chip with dark chocolate chunks. Pure heaven.

And if after indulging in a few bowls of this rich dessert, you need to go up a bathing suit size, you can feel confident that you’ll still look great in a MiracleSuit.
