I am currently shopping for swimsuits for our upcoming Spring Break Trip, and I (just like I’m sure a LOT of you all are too…) was a complete Drama Queen in the Dressing Room- grrrr! I will say in my defense, this was prompted by the fact that the first store I stepped into had NO Swimsuits displayed. The associate advised they are one of the few stores that haven’t gotten Swimwear as of yet. Luckily for me, she told me that there were a few items in the back she had from a return and asked my size to see if I could try those. I did…
What’s Interesting to me is now that have so many MORE options as it relates to shopping for clothes since weight loss, is that I have picked up this tantrum behavior that I did NOT have when I was much larger. I was more humble as a shopper so-to-speak. What I mean is, I was happy that I was able to “Get it on” at that size and was far less judgmental and critical of myself. I admire that about the bigger version of me. That is the point of view I am using to encourage you all today before you start shopping for swimwear.
Drake made the term YOLO popular, but I’ve ALWAYS operated on this same theory. You have ONE LIFE. LIVE IT and enjoy yourself. Don’t be your own worst critic. Practice Self Love. Embrace who you are and where you are TODAY! The goal is to get to that Ideal Weight, Financial Status, the Perfect Relationship, etc… But until then what are you supposed to do, just sit in a corner and watch other people LIVE. Nah, Sis… BUY THE SWIMSUIT!
There are a number of Different varieties of suits made available these days. SO definitely take that into consideration before you start your search. There are One Piece Suits of course, those with a Dress type Layer to them, Tank-ini’s, Traditional 2-Piece Bikinis, Mono-kini’s… The List Goes On and On!
I encourage you to GO SHOP and get your swimwear NOW because Spring & Summer are approaching. And guess what, they’ll sell out because there is a NEW group of Curvy Chicks out here like ME who NEVER GAF about wearing them and they buy them OUT! Okay?!?!? Don’t Sleep…
