As you know, this week I am trying to celebrate my body with the Love My Body Project. I started this past Sunday, and I’m continuing until tomorrow night, Valentine’s Day.
What better way to flaunt the awesome bodies we have than in a swimsuit? That’s right. Swimsuits. In February. Forgive me because I am going on a Florida beach vacation in less than two months, so swimsuit shopping is already on my mind.
Last year I really wanted to find a retro swimsuit that would embrace my curves and show off my body in a flattering way. Sadly, I wasn’t able to find the right thing. This year I’m thinking: Simple. I want a nice tankini that fits well and will last. Enter: Lands’ End. Say what you will about this veritable American brand, these swimsuits look nice on everyone and last a long time. Which is good, ’cause they ain’t cheap!
Here’s a couple that I’m admiring right now:
I like the straighter skirt style of the second one best, but I’ve actually never worn a little skirt for a swimsuit. I’ve only worn the regular bottoms.
So, what do you think? What do you look for in a swimsuit?
Love My Body Project #4: I love to flatter my body in clothes that fit well, and show off my curves in great dresses! While I love a good-fitting pair of jeans, and nothing is more comfy than a soft sweater, dresses will always be my go-to when I want to celebrate the body I have. With the right undergarments (so key!) dresses can make you feel glamorous and put that extra spring in your step. I’m thankful I can dress up the body I have!
