This site is all about loving ourselves (just as we are) and feeling our best, so today I’m talking about a style of bathing suit that has recently become a staple in my summer wardrobe– high waisted bikinis!
At this point, I’m so in love with this style of swimsuit that I’m curious as to how I never purchased one sooner?! For me, they are hands down more comfortable than wearing a style that isn’t high waisted. High waisted means I can comfortably eat, drink, & be merry without worrying about being “full” in a bathing suit. Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with being full… In FACT I love being full and eating in general (haha), so it’s pretty important for me to feel comfortable doing so in a bathing-suit.
As I’ve shared a bit before, I have a history with body image issues (that are thankfully far behind me). That being said, choosing styles of swimwear where I feel comfortable AND stylish is so so important to me. You know??
Anyways, I was shopping in Forever 21 a few weeks ago and was honestly SO impressed with their swimwear!! I picked up a few really cute suits, including this one for $30!! I was SO pumped especially because the fit is SO great.
At the end of the day, I really think that the most important thing is being mindful of how we feel in regards to everything in life, including how we feel in clothing, or in swimwear we are purchasing. For me, this also means that just because something is “trendy” (such as the whole thong bikini thing), doesn’t mean that you have to participate in the trend if it doesn’t make you FEEL good. It ALSO means it’s okay if you love something and it’s different than what other people love!! As long as we are honoring our authentic selves. 🙂
What do you guys think? What are the styles of bathing suits that make you feel the best?
