3 Must-Have Swimsuits for Summer
I wasn’t sure if I would be confident enough to even put a swimsuit on this summer. Two years ago, my stomach was flat. Last year, I had the cutest pregnant belly. This year, I have a whole new body that I wasn’t quite ready to show off. It took some time, self-love, diastasis recti repair and many gym visits to gain more confidence in showing a little skin this summer.
I believe in boundaries and only doing things for myself, not the approval or attention of others, so I didn’t buy any bikinis. I’ve gotten used to my new booty stretch marks, but I’m not quite ready to show my stomach. That didn’t stop me from getting some bold, printed, cheeky one piece swimsuits! Even if you’re not ready to “let it all hang out,” here are my top three must-have swimsuits for the summer.
Bright Colors- Orange, red, hot pink, neon green and bright yellow are all beautiful, summer colors. They make any style swimsuit pop just a little more. This swimsuit is also really cheeky in the back.
2. Animal Print- Leopard and snakeskin prints have dominated the spring and summer. There’s no exception when it comes to swimsuits! This one piece is really comfy and holds my everything in place.
3. Fun Prints- Summer time calls for fun, fruity prints! Watermelon, pineapples and lemons seem to be the top picks. I love this fun watermelon swimsuit!
Gaining your confidence back after having a baby can be difficult, especially in a social media world where everyone else seems to “snap back” so fast. You owe it to yourself to love and appreciate the body you have; a body that birthed a whole human being. You deserve to put on that swimsuit and enjoy your summer!
