Swimwear for All Body Shapes

Ladies! I know sometimes it can be hard to feel “beautiful” in a swimsuit. I have dreaded the swimsuit “hunt” for the last three years as I have battled with weight fluctuation and have kept wearing my 5-year-old two-piece (that no longer fits,) covering it up with a tank top (DONT DO THIS.) I created this collage essentially for myself and realized it was perfect for the rest of my Real Women readers!

    Some real women can wear a Brazilian Bikini and look great. Us busty ladies shall be proud of our bussoms and wear that heart-shaped halter while, my gorgeous curvaceous women should feel comfortable in a two-piece. There is truly a suit for everyone!

I couldn’t help but throw in a few maternity swimsuits, because I want to encourage the “soon to be ” moms  that they too can be a fashionista. A baby bump is the most beautiful accessory.

    Be proud of your curves , thighs, your rock hard abs, your beautiful blossomed bust, and that wonderful baby bump. And for those who are a little self-conscious about the tummy (like me,) there are amazing one piece swimsuits available as they are so prevalent in todays style “closet!”

    Frumpy no more! Have FUN choosing your swimsuit. No one can make you feel inferior or not beautiful – UNLESS YOU LET THEM! Show the haters who’s boss!

Do not feel guilty shelling out $100 or a tiny bit more on an awesome fitting suit. Make the investment; These classic suit choices are a great addition to your summer wardrobe and will last you quite a while without ever making you feel “so last year!”
