Thoughts for Thursday | Thoughts on Swimsuits

Thursday, June 18, 2015

If you're like me then I'm sure you hate shopping for a swimsuit just as much as I do. I would imagine most women around the world hate shopping for swimsuits.
And I can't help but feel like the designers make an already impossible task of finding a swimsuit so much harder on us. Whether it's the teeny tiny bottoms, low bust lines, or just the ridiculous styles in general. It's pretty difficult to find a style that both fits and looks flattering.

I am a 29 year old mother of two. (Can I just stop right there and say, that sentence just took my breath away.) I have stretch marks left behind from both of my children. I'm not fat but I'm definitely not toned. Really, who has time to works out with two kids?? I wear a size 6 in pants and dresses and a medium in tops. And for some reason when I go to try on a swimsuit I automatically feel more self conscious than before. I recently purchased a one piece swimsuit and I had to buy a size 12. Yes, 12. Note: I am not trying to insult or make anyone feel bad about wearing a size 12 so please don't take it as that. I'm just wondering why, if I'm a size 6/medium, do I have to buy a size 12 in order to feel comfortable. I'm just wondering why swimsuits can't be made to fit just as regular clothing does.

Ok, rant over. Those are just my thoughts on that today.
