Have you ever bought a bathing suit and then covered it up with a T-Shirt?
Have you ever walked around in board shorts to hide your thighs?
Have you ever refused to get into the ocean/pool/lake/river because you were embarrassed to be seen in your swimsuit?
I’ve done all these things (and more). I’ve done these things at my biggest and at my smallest. The funny thing is, while I’m obsessing over the summer season and how I will look walking around in a bathing suit, there are millions of men walking around like this:
If these men have body confidence, why cant I?
After doing a bit of pre-season home shopping and stocking up on swimsuits, cover-ups and sundresses I’ve spent the last week in sunny San Diego and I have been in my bathing suits since I got here. I’ve walked around the city in tiny sundresses thrown over my bathing suit, just like the skinny girls do and its LIBERATING! Quick trips to the store or to grab lunch are so much more fun when you’re barely clothed and the sun is kissing your body. Not to mention, my tan is stellar!
Anyway, Memorial weekend means the beginning of summer, so lets put things in perspective. We’ve all got body issues, but at then end of the day… who cares?!
