“This body is a my summer body.” _TheFatGirloFfashion
It’s that time of year that many women stare at themselves in the mirror and say why didn’t I work out a little more? Or why didn’t I pass on that cheesecake? This time of year is called swimsuit season. This time of year can be even tougher for plus size women and girls. While at Blogher my friends and I went to pool and talked about dealing with our own swimsuit and body issues. It was great being able to jump into this topic and the pool feet first with Ashley of IAMFABELLIS and Tot of TOTALLYTOT.
I’m so happy to have met Ashley. Not often do you meet someone and you just click!
I personally love a two piece swimsuit. I have a larger mid section so I prefer high waisted suits. That does not mean all plus size women have to pick those kinds of suits. I don’t believe in the idea of “dressing for your body.” Wear what makes you happy! For some that’s a one piece and that’s O.K.!! If you’re a one piece kind of girl try a strapless suit to add a little vavavoom.
I’m also a fan of cover ups. I love a kimono. They’re a great way to wear your swimsuit on whether it’s a one piece or a two piece but not show the world everything. Swim cover alls come in some many colors and fabrics that options are endless. My blogger boo Tot is wearing the pinky promise A-line bomber from Kierra Sheard line Eleven60 Apparel as a cover up.
She has my back and I have hers!
I find the best way to wear swimwear with confidence is by getting connected. Get a few people that support you and send time loving them and allowing them to love you. Yes, self confidence starts with self. However, It’s feels good to have true support from people that wish you well. The girls and I sat poolside and talks about butt shapes and stretch marks. We all had parts of we wish we could upgrade but told each other that we were beauty just the way we were.
Wearing a swimsuit as a plus size women or girl with confidence starts by first putting one on!
