Swimwear Struggles

We’ve all been there… whether you’ve had a little doubt in your mind before purchasing that super beautiful bikini or even the tight bright coloured one piece you’ve seen on the size 6 model. Doubt can get to us all. I’ve been the first out of my friends in the past to reach for the ‘Tummy control’ piece just because I felt it was appropriate to do so cause I wobble and jiggle like any other normal human being.

For me, there’s the same 3 areas I’ve always had my quibbles with:

  • Firstly, the belly – this is an obvious one. I adore my jiggle now but it has taken it’s time to become my friend, and whilst we’re now on good terms I feel slightly guilty for neglecting the delightful wobble.
  • Secondly, my thighs…. now anyone who follows my social channels will know I’m all about #freethethighs but I used to feel completely self conscious of them before. Add to the fact I remember seeing girls on the beach with not a dot of cellulite on their legs and you’ll understand why so many girls get a complex about it. These lines/marks/whatever you want to call ’em are lovely little dimples that would also really like to see the sun if you fancy showcasing them out.
  • Finally, my shoulders. I have no idea really guys and gals. I suppose I’ve always thought of them as rather manly. I’m not petite framed and I’m cool with this now, but when I was younger I used to find I had an extremely square build. As with the thighs, I’m sure they’d appreciate the day out once in a while.

Now overcome with love for these little wobbles I once feared, not only have I purchased some FAB one pieces but I picked up the most beautiful Tankini set from Yours Clothing.


Disclosure: I am not editing out my cellulite

See how the sun reflects beautifully off extremely pale skin? It’s like Casper the friendly ghost staring back on a happy summers day.


You can pick up some similar styles to the set I wore here, here, here and here .. and what’s best? Most are in the SALE right now (until end of June).

SIDE NOTE—- if you are expecting this is HIGHLY recommended. I have room to grow and baby bump does not feel constricted at all !!! Hurrah for comfortable and fashionable.
