Are any of us ever really ready for swim suit season? I think it’s safe to say most men and women do not ever feel 100 percent confident walking around in a bathing suit. Bathing suits have us feeling vulnerable and I think most of us feel very exposed walking on the beach or laying by the pool in only a bathing suit. Even the most confident person is much more aware of their body while wearing a bathing suit.
I am loving one pieces these days. There are so many flattering and stylish one pieces that I really can’t see myself wearing another bikini again. My bikini days are over and I have really embraced the one piece.
I am 43 years old and I don’t think there has been one time that I have absolutely loved how I look in a bathing suit. This is why I think it’s important to invest in a really flattering bathing suit that suits your body type. I am big chested and curvy so support is a must when I am shopping for a bathing suit. Last year I spent way too much on a bathing suit at Nordstrom but I absolutely love everything about it. The colour, the neckline and especially the built in tummy control. As much as I try to stay positive about my body and love all of me, I can’t help but wish my tummy was flatter and my thighs were slimmer. These are things I can work on and improve but I that would mean eating much cleaner and I do really love my food. So, till then I will walk around in my overpriced bathing suit that I feel my best in.
There are so many things you can do to feel more confident in a bathing suit. Accessories!!! Big floppy hats are so fun and stylish!
Get yourself a cool cover up. They can instantly give you all the confidence you need. I absolutely love mine!
Nail polish! You will never see me without my toes and hands painted. I do them once a week and I feel they complete my outfits. I am loving these neon colours. They are fun and perfect for summer.
Sunglasses are my favorite accessory. It’s so important to protect your eyes from the sun. I am not going to lie, sometimes I feel like a movie star when I wear my sunglasses. Is that weird? Maybe…. but it’s true!
So next time you have to wear a bathing suit, embrace it. Add some fun accessories, throw on a pair of cool shades that make you feel like a movie star and rock it!
