How to Put on a Bikini: 11 Steps (with Pictures) - wikiHow
As we enter swimsuit season, I feel compelled to share my most embarrassing moment with you all as a warning. I shared this once before, back when N and my Mom were my only readers. My family vacations at the same beach every year. If you grew up in the mid-atlantic, your family probably vacationed in one of three places:. That is the proper east coast terminology. Weirdly, people rarely vacation in the same state they live in, even though the beaches are all pretty much the same. Then during the day, we all sit on the packed beach in beach chairs in a big half circle and chat and read books and just sit there.
Typically, we spend way too much time worrying all winter and spring about how our bodies will look in our bathing suits comes summer. We spend countless hours trying to get flat abs, toned legs, and a tight butt to "look good" for everyone else, even if we're already totally happy with what we've got. If you're doubting putting on your littlest bikini because you don't think you're "summer ready," here are some awesome women who will inspire you to rock it with confidence. I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini.
The only secret to getting a 'bikini body' is physically putting your body in a bikini. But, despite this, many women suffer low self-esteem when it comes to the prospect of putting on a two-piece for the beach. If you've found yourself feeling apprehensive about wearing swimwear this summer, try to take some inspiration from these women, who have managed to put it in perspective for themselves and are now encouraging others to do the same. I actually never posted the first picture. I took one look at it and decided that after months of dangerous crash dieting I still wasn't thin enough.
