While I was on vacation, I made it a rule that I had to be photographed in each bathing suit that I wore… Why? Because I wanted to prove to myself that I am strong enough to share them with you all.
When I was in high school, it was my BIGGEST fear that I would run into someone from school while in a bathing suit. I imagined the world would crumble and they would tell all of their friends what I looked like in detail, cellulite and all! Now, I am realizing how stupid that was, but I was extremely self conscious and I am so glad that is now a closed chapter in my life.
Every bathing suit I wore was slightly out of my typical comfort zone on this trip. I didn’t even bring a one piece! But I am going to take the time to share every suit on this blog.
This suit was AWESOME! I got it from Target, and when I tried on the bottoms the first time I was really worried because they didn’t fit, but then I realized I could make them a bit looser by untying the sides! Therefore I wouldn’t have a muffin top! :) Oh, and padded bikini tops?! My new best friends.
p.s. I wanted to share with you all, I know how to retouch and alter things in Photoshop but I held myself back in all of these images (and 99% of the images on my blog)! I am very proud of myself haha. :P
