Guys, it's starting to finally feel like summer! This week it's supposed to be warm and in the 80's and 90's. This is the perfect time to lay out, soak up some sun, and head to the beach. Now, I know we all made new year's resolutions to eat better, work-out more, and focus on ourselves. However, if you're like me, and the summer snuck up on you, then you may not be as bathing suit ready as you'd like. It's okay, you're not alone, I know when this time of year rolls around I'm super excited, but, there's a lot of pressure for women to feel sexy, and skinny, in bathing suits. You may feel overwhelmed trying to find something suitable for you, or you may feel uncomfortable being in something that feels like a second skin, opposed to an outfit. All of these feelings are totally normal! We all go through them.
One of the things that I loved about this Shein pink backless ruffle bathing suit is that it's flattering on all body types! I have a shorter torso, something I've talked about before on the blog, and sometimes I don't feel the most comfortable sporting a bathing suit. This beautiful, flaming pink swimsuit, was exactly what I needed to break me out of my comfort zone! I have always been a fan of one-piece bathing suits, because I love how it can be sexy yet classy as well. The ruffles on this swim-suit it super stylish and the best part is that it comes in a bunch of different colors! I'm on summer vacation, so I am on a HUGE budget. This bathing suit is only 11! Which definitely is a steal! Not only is it comfortable, but there's built in pads to add that extra leverage that you need.
I love customizing my bathing suits so if you don't feel comfortable wearing it by itself add a summery kimono or cover up to it! I also wore a floral head band and shorts making it great for summer! Make it your own, you never know what styles you can come up with!
Now, if you're feeling sassy and want to show off your hard work, it's okay to trade in the one piece for a high-waist bikini. If you have long legs this will extenuate your body perfectly and add all the right coverage to the areas you may not feel comfortable exposing. This awesome bathing suit is striped and just the amount of fun that you need! It reminds me of a ray of sunshine which is perfect for those long Chicago nights! You can even add some shorts to this swimmy and take it out on the town.
I've heard a lot of women tell me that they don't necessarily enjoy showing off their shoulders. Therefore, this swim suit would be perfect for you! Not only is the color flattering, for all skin tones, but the off the shoulder look goes well with all body types. I am obsessed with items that you can wear for multiple uses. Pair this swimmy with a high-waist skirt, some light brown sandals, and you're ready to go! Coverage is key when you don't feel 100% comfortable.
Now, if you're wanting serious coverage I suggest using a nice one piece. Not only is stripes flattering, covering what I like to call, the danger zones of your body, but it's trendy as well. This crosscross back is such a fun design but it can hide all the lumps and bumps that you don't want people seeing. I love bright colors and these bright stripes can pave a desired body image. Add a nice sunhat with some jean shorts and this can be a perfect summer swimmy for anyone!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this bathing suit spread! I hope you find the right swimmy for you this summer! Remember, no matter what shape, size, or comfort level you're on, you're still BEAUTIFUL. Be fierce, be bold, be YOU.
Until next time!
