Confessions Of A Curvy Girl: The Comfort Zone

Confessions Of A Curvy Girl

I know it seems odd to be talking about buying a new swimsuit in October.  Most of us are thinking about sweaters, jeans, and boots – not swimsuits. However, for those of us who are lucky enough to take a vacation during the fall season, swimsuit shopping isn’t quite out of the question.

For me at least, going on vacation means new clothes or, in this case, a new swimsuit. The last thing you want to do is waltz in with a stretched out little number, material so thin you can see through it; or worse, letting it all hang out.  This is not an image anyone wants.

Where do you begin? First, you need to evaluate your comfort zone.  Is your normal swimwear appropriate for the destination? Who is going to be around to see you in it? Case in point: Have you ever been to a water park? The one with water slides, sunscreen stations, wave pools, etc. I’m sure you undoubtedly came across a few people who transitioned into a revealing unflattering 2 piece, when in fact they should’ve stuck with to the one-piece suit.

Don’t be that person. Don’t decide that your long awaited trip to Aruba was the place to flaunt a string bikini. Even though you’re on a beach where your family may be the only people you know, you still want to look and feel your best.

Next time, I will be talking about shopping for your body type. You know, those of us who have been blessed in the hips, thighs and breasts.
