Swimsuit Ideas for those who Forgot to do their Pilates

5 Jun

I slipped on my swimsuit today for the first time in about a year and cot damn all I could think of was creating a magic potion to shrink my muffin top and thunder thighs.  Since January I’ve vowed, broken, re-vowed and divorced the idea of exercising and losing weight.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my curves and DD’s (and so does the He), but I recognized that  I need to be a size healthy.  I know I’m not in this boat alone.  It’s not too late to get started on shaping up, but here are some fashionable ideas to cover those less than flattering lumps and bumps. (Side note: I’m aware that many of the chicks in these pics don’t represent the average woman.  I chose the best swimsuit types that would best fit different body types.)

For the bikini-types at heart, but that baby fat has you thinking differently.  Here are some cute options that aren’t the conventional one pieces.

I’m partial to the one-piece swimsuits.  They’re classic and can flatter all body-types.  After much searching I found a couple I liked here and here.

Cover ups have become chic and stylish.  Here are a few that are trendy not spendy.

Big girls have fun too! And we look good while doing it.  Here are a few plus size suits that accentuate all the right parts.

My kiddos have already forewarned me we’re going to be spending our lives at the pool for the next three months.  So if you’re anything like me, you want to look good and feel comfortable while having fun.  No tugging here and pulling there and definitely no wardrobe malfunctions.  Have fun, be safe, and look fab!  Rule of Life #1143 Confidence is like your AmEx card, never leave home without it!
