If you're anything like me, the thought of swimsuit season doesn't excite you the way it did when we were in our 20's. Heading out to the mall to try on several teeny, tiny, bikinis under the glaring fluorescent lights is NOT something that I have looked forward to for many years, but that doesn't change the fact that swim season is here.
Boating, back yard gatherings, or just visiting your local swimming pool are all things that we like to do to beat the summer heat, but the thought of finding the right swimsuit for your body shape and size can be down right petrifying.
"Finding the swimsuit that you feel comfortable in is hard enough, no need to do it under the glare of florescent lighting. Pick out several that you think will work, take them home and try them on with the things that you'll actually wear when you'll be out in them."
Searching for the swimsuit that suits you isn't an easy task for many, and for good reason. The lighting in the mall dressing rooms is HARSH, the salespeople aren't there to really help you pick what works for you, they are there to sell you a swimsuit, and the environment just isn't right.
Finding the swimsuit that you feel comfortable in is hard enough, no need to do it under the glare of florescent lighting. Pick out several that you think will work, take them home and try them on with the things that you'll actually wear when you'll be out in them. Try it with a sarong, or with a pair of shorts, or some sort of cover-up that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Returning the pieces that were a definite no is easy so feeling at ease and self assured while trying on suits is one of the biggest hurdles we all face.
Recently I found this suit from Boston Proper and wanted to see how I felt wearing it. It fits great, is made with material that feels like it sucks you in in all the right places, (ya feel me girls?) and I don't feel like I'm wearing my grandmother's swimsuit. I feel sexy and confident in it and that really is the biggest piece of the puzzle. By adding the matching sarong (or a similar option here) I feel like I have enough coverage until I go into the water (If I go into the water)
With Memorial Day weekend coming up there may be an outing (with social distancing of course) with friends. Throw on a kimono cover like this topper from Cabi, add a hat, some sandals, and your favorite sunnies, and you're ready to go! And girl, you'll look MAH-VELOUS!
