Today I bought my first two-piece swim suit. Ever. I’ve been 110 pounds. I’ve been 230 pounds. But, I have never shown my tummy in public.
I felt like it was my responsibility as the hottest woman alive to not make others feel inferior. Sometimes it was about not loving my body. Most of the time it was about keeping closed and private. I’ve never been one to objectify the skin I’m in, and putting it on display always made me feel trapped.
But, this Thanksgiving I’m going to Maui and I felt the stir to do something crazy. I agonized over it. Could I be someone showing my naval to the world? Could I have a suit exposing parts of my body I let my eyes avoid in the mirror? But, I wanted to do it. I just had it in my mind. I wanted to wear a two-piece swim suit.
I got a great starter two-piece from Etsy seller BeBops. The bottoms fold down and fold up so it can be worn at three levels of coverage. I can bail out of my expose at anytime. So, without further ado— the most revealing photos of me that have ever appeared anywhere (except for an ex-boyfriend’s camera, but that was a mistake we don’t talk about).
Upon review, I have noticed my smile gets bigger the more I’m covered. I have a feeling I’ll be rocking the bail-out for the majority of my vacation. But, at least I did it. I own a two-piece.
Note: If you have anything that is not respectful and kind to say about who I am and the body I am blessed to have, I encourage you to look inward and think about why it makes you feel good to make other people hurt. kthanxbai.
