Ready or not, here it comes. Swimsuit season is almost upon us y’all, and this year, I’m diving in head-first. Who’s with me? Hear me out. We all have different bodies, different curves (and non-curves), different strengths and insecurities. This year, let’s all try something new: just go with it. Think of all the things you miss out on because of body insecurities or swimsuit avoidance. Way lame, girl! So I’m teaming up with Target for their #NOFOMO campaign to get up, get suited, and get out there.
Living at the beach, there’s no excuse for me, but being more than a smidge top-heavy, it can be hard to find swimsuit tops that fit. Over the past couple of years, I’ve found a couple of triangle top styles that work for me, and I’ve been sticking with them. This year, though, I pledged to find a little something different. I went into Target with an open mind and some time on my hands and was surprised when I went into the dressing room with, like, 1,000 suits. I couldn’t help myself. I was even more surprised when I found these three solidly different, solidly “outside of my comfort zone” suits. (Clearly though, I’m into crochet.)
First up? A neon bandeau style with a mismatched bottom. (I prefer mismatched bikinis usually.) The straps are adjustable and surprisingly supportive. And finally? A one-piece. GASP! I know! Y’all, I haven’t had a one-piece swimsuit in a couple of decades. They’ve been back in style for a couple of seasons, but they’re usually a big no-no for gals with boobs. Add in a long torso like mine and you’re just asking for trouble. But this one? Just trust. But don’t take my word for it – head over to Target and give it a whirl, girl. And because three suits weren’t enough for January, I’ve got this one on order. (Get ’em while they’re hot, am I right?)
So I ask again: who’s with me? What will you challenge yourself to do this swimsuit season with #NOFOMO?
