It's swimsuit season. Whether you're ready for it or not, it's here friends. I know swimsuit season can strike a lot of terror in the hearts of women, but I am on a serious mission this year to dispel the body shame that seems to creep in with these summer months. Female bodies are BEAU-TI-FUL. These days I am feeling prouder of my body than ever before, because I've experienced it carry my baby, nourish my baby, and recover (sort of, ha) from the ordeal. Obviously, things are NOT the same, but I feel a lot more gracious towards myself after having gone through the experience of giving birth. More than ever, I am proud of what my body can do. And I'm not going to let a string bikini scare me from going outside this summer! Although the days of string bikinis might be behind me... who can wear those and chase a busy toddler around? #unicornmoms
With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, I wanted to share a round up of dreamy bathing suits that I'm crushing on. I am loving one-pieces these days (much to my husband's chagrin, he can get over it), because they allow me to be more active with my son. Plus, the designs are getting so cute, with creative cut outs and graphic prints - so fun! Of course, I'm always a fan of the Victoria's Secret Bikini Mixer, where you can mix and match the fit that is best for your body type with a zillion colors and prints. We ladies need to be able to customize!
Tell me - where do you swimsuit shop? Do you favor a one-piece or two-piece? Are you ready for pool/beach season? Happy shopping friends!
