Embracing Swimwear That Makes Me Shine

Updated: May 8


2022 - Palm Coast, FL

I've never been one to shy away from the camera—or so I thought. But when I recently searched through my photos spanning the last decade, I was surprised to find just a handful that showed more than just headshots. Full-body shots? Rare as a unicorn. It seems that while I don't actively avoid the camera, I haven't exactly been embracing it either.

Until now!

2021, Palm Coast, FL

I finally stumbled upon a swimsuit that empowers me to be carefree and confident—free from that nagging voice in my head that used to critique every choice. Maybe I've changed, or maybe I've just found the perfect swimsuit match. It's solved so many of my past swimwear woes:

  • No more pulling and tugging from ill-fitting suits.

  • Say goodbye to uncomfortable squeezing and floaty swim skirts.

  • And let's not forget the importance of support—no more swimsuits without it!

This year, I struck gold (literally, and figuratively!) with a swimsuit that ticks all the boxes. It covers where I want coverage, provides the support I need, and even adds a touch of girlish charm that makes me feel like myself.

I was over the moon when I ordered two tops online for my upcoming cruise and they fit like a dream. But my excitement was dampened by the lackluster bottom options I already had—a swim skirt that just wouldn't cooperate and a black bikini bottom that felt a tad too snug.

I wanted to feel amazing on my vacation adventures, so I kept searching. That's when I stumbled upon swim shorts for women. Have they always been around, or am I finally at a point where comfort and confidence trump fashion norms?

Either way, I'm loving this new chapter. Sure, swim shorts might not be mainstream yet—I didn't spot a single pair on vacation—but that didn't matter. I felt fantastic in my own skin, no cover-up was necessary when you're rocking a tankini top and swim shorts!

Pink Swim Shorts

These started strong but tended to rise and bunch while I was learning the thriller dance—not the look I was going for!

Mint Green Swim Shorts

Sized up due to limited availability, which unfortunately led to a bit of a waistline mishap. Safety pins became my best friend.

Black Lace Insert Swim Shorts

Gold Medal: Black Swim Shorts with Lace Insert These stole the show with a flirty lace detail that made me smile. The fit was perfect—no slipping or sliding, even during cave tubing adventures!

It's a wonderful feeling when a swimsuit just clicks. Is my body perfect? Far from it. But with these items, I felt absolutely amazing.
