(Strip Number 1290, Original Publication Date, 9 May 1988)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at the swimsuit aisle watching Elly holler in rage to Connie because once again, she cannot find a suit that flatters the two-child figure and she's sick of it.
Panel 2: Since Elly has gone on record as saying that there's a conspiracy of horrible men trying to chase her and all other mothers off the beach so they can ogle wife-stealing skinny girls, she asks Connie why said horrible men keep doing this to them.
Panel 3: Connie tells Elly that this is not the case because she and all other women are doing this to themselves.
Panel 4: As she pays for the not enough bathing suit, she tells a gobsmacked Elly that the problem is that they keep buying the unflattering suits.
Caption: Lynn raises an excellent point here but there's an obstacle in the way of her telling the full truth: the fact that her brain is hard-wired to magnify physical imperfections. Also, Connie lets We Moms off the hook by calling We Moms passive victims of men who want to make them feel ugly.
