About 5 years ago, one of my best friends encouraged me to try on a two-piece bathing suit and as uncomfortable as the idea made me I obliged. It made me uncomfortable because I had not worn a two-piece bathing suit in years and my body was not “itsy bitsy yellow polka dot bikini” ready. Fast forward to today, I own way too many bathing suits and although not much has changed with my body, my mindset is completely different. Bathing suits are created for bodies, and as long as I have a body, I will wear whatever bathing suit I desire.
As part of my “25 before 25” (will talk more about this in a different post) I took a random trip to the islands. I packed 10 bathing suits even though I would only be gone for 5 days. This bathing suit is not only cute, but it is extremely supportive, hugs you in the right places, shows just enough skin, AND it is affordable.
Five years ago, you would not be able to catch me so confidently in a bathing suit, much less writing an entire post about it! I am so proud of my progress and thankful for friends that see beauty in you even when you do not see it in yourself! I would love to read about your favorite bathing suit in the comments! Thanks for reading. Love, Dee.
