Swimsuit season always comes with mixed feelings. There is excitement about the warm weather, day drinking, and pool parties...then you remember oh sh*t I'm going to have to wear a swimsuit soon....in front of people!
I've got a tummy, a pooch, a beer belly, a gut..whatever term of endearment you would like to call it. Even at my tiniest I still had a little fanny pack hiding under my shirt. I have a short torso and long legs--that's just the way it's going to be. I will never have a 6 pack. I'm at a point in my life where crash dieting for spring break, drinking gallons of lemon water, and sustaining on Lean Cuisines (yes, I've done them all) is just not worth it to me. I'd much rather eat the pizza, nachos and drink the margaritas that make my life enjoyable than count every calorie to honestly not see a dramatic difference in my middle area. After 27 years of hating my belly and trying to lose it I've learned to not necessarily accept it, but figure out ways to play up my other features. Insert the ONESIE! Ladies, the one-pieces of today are in a totally different world from the 80's red Baywatch suits and moo-moos you may have in mind. I promise.
I'm so thankful that brands are making cute one piece and tankini options--FINALLY! These days I would much rather rock an awesome one-piece than spend all day uncomfortable in a bikini.
Here are some great options I've found for us girls wanting to camouflage our mid-sections but still have style this summer! All under $100! (click image for details)
