I haven't worn a swimsuit since I was about 13, and haven't worn a bikini for about 4 years. The last couple of beach holidays I haven't been in the sea, and that makes me sad (I really love the sea). I just don't have the confidence, my body is far from good. My stomach and hips are the worst and the parts i'm most conscious about. So obviously, a swimsuit, or any kind of beach wear is a huge no go. But I NEED to go in the sea, and I want to not feel over dressed at the beach, maybe tan a little, so I have taken the plunge.
I did go for a 'swim skirt' first, have you heard of them before? I never had, anyway, I HATED it. Gross, back to the shop it goes. I searched and searched for an alternative, and there really is very little comfortable, non-underwear like alternatives, huh? I suppose that makes sense. So I went for a full swimsuit, what do you think? It's cute (on the size 8 model), not convinced I'm going to feel great in it.

Actually, I'm still not convinced I'm going to wear it, but I'm really going to try. I am working on getting my own good body, running, eating better etc, so this time next year I will not have this issue, but for the time being I do. I dont think I can lose a few stone between now and Tuesday. I really don't want it to ruin my holiday. Plus, I am only going to be with my boyfriend, and two really good friends, so it shouldn't matter really? But it does. Surely there must be other girls out there that have the same issue?
Wish me luck.
