Summer is coming!! With the arrival of Summer comes the time of year that many women hate the most – Swimsuit season. I generally am not a fan of swimsuit season. I always feel that when I wear a swimsuit, everyone’s eyes will automatically divert to my inner thighs, and not see me. My inner thighs are my current source of body insecurities. I’ve declined some invitations to beach days with friends out because of fear of how my thighs would look out in the open for everyone to see. It may sound silly, but it has effected my judgement and choices when it comes to Summer fun more than I’d like to admit. Do you feel that way about any aspect of your body?
My insecurities about my thighs always made swimsuit shopping difficult. I decided that this year would be different. I mean, I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want – thanks Queen B! I took my swimsuit shopping by the reins, set my insecurities to the sidelines, and picked out some really cute suits from Target’s plus size department for the coming Summer months.
What I’m wearing: Ava & Viv Women’s Plus Mesh Flyaway Tankini in Black/White Animal | VM Women’s Plus Bikini Swim Top in Black | Bikini Swim Bottoms | Ava & Viv Women’s Plus One Piece Swimsuit w. Lasercut Flounce Top in Exciting Purple
I have to say, the fits are pure perfection. I’ve never put on a swim suit and felt the butterflies of excitement in my stomach that I felt when I saw myself in the mirror. Girl, Yasss! Finally, some beautiful swimsuits that make me feel gorgeous, that look amazing on me, and make me ready to play in the waves. In case you are an online shopper, like me, you can order a swimsuit from Target’s site and try it on at home. I really liked that the best, because I could really see how it fit in my own mirror, and be extra picky with what I love and don’t love. The best part is that Target has free shipping AND free returns, so it’s basically like shopping without having to hope that the store near you has your size!
I am dying over these three swimsuits in particular. In general, I like to size down in swimsuits, because I don’t want them to be roomy. I like them to fit like a glove, so to speak, and these suits did not disappoint! The purple laser-cut flounce top once piece?? I’ve never felt so girly and sweet in a swimsuit before this beauty arrived in my closet. Let’s talk about the gorgeous crochet detail of the bikini swim top. It’s comfy, it’s cute, and it’s sexy. I have big outfit plans for this bikini top. I adore the black and white tankini with the cute ruched sided bottom. It’s so flattering and supportive, and it makes me excited to head to the beach for an all-day adventure!
Thanks to Target’s awesome selection of super cute plus size swimsuits, my thigh insecurities are dust in the wind (I’m loving all of these song references – aren’t you?). Target is launching an amazing swimwear campaign – #NOFOMO TargetStyle. It’s all about embracing the season with no reservations, just confidence, and I am here for it!
