Let me start off by saying that I’d rather go to the beach on a cold and overcast day in sweats than to be caught dead in a swim suit. I am not the type that likes to show too much, if any skin. I am incredibly modest and prefer to cover up any spots (*cough my stomach, thighs and butt cough*) that just aren’t that lovely and should be hidden away from any seeing person.
That being said, I have found a new suit that I LOVE and that pushes me out of my comfort zone, although I’ve never felt sexier. Go figure.
Here’s the story:
Right before Memorial Day, I was shopping at Target and got the urge to buy a new swimsuit. It has been two years since I bought my last swimsuit and I was still working off some baby weight back then, so there aren’t good memories attached to it (you mamas know what I mean). It’s a tankini and nothing is wrong with it per se, it’s just not incredibly flattering.
I went looking through the bathing suits and threw three one piece suits (two were the same in a different size) in my cart and walked to check out. There is no way I was going to put myself through trying on a bathing suit with those dressing room mirrors and bad lighting. No thank you.
I took them home and tried on the first one. And it was love at first sight. It definitely shows more chest area than I prefer, but it boosts my girls right up, instead of flattening them in an unflattering tube like my tankini.
I looked at the tag and realize it’s made by Assets which is a version of Spanx.
SPANX MAKES BATHING SUITS!!!
I really wish someone would have told me this ten years ago. I would have possibly attended a lot more pool parties sans board shorts and t-shirt. 😉
No wonder I feel so incredibly sexy! It hugs/lifts in all the right places and is a HUGE boost of confidence to this mother of two.
If you need a bathing suit for this summer, I urge you to look at Target. You can buy the same one as me online here. (I got a Large and normally wear a 10-12.)
Happy Fashion Friday!
