When I decided to join the Big Fat Summer Challenge I knew the most difficult part of the challenge would be to "wear a two-piece." I understood this for three reasons. First, I am a high school teacher, and I must be very careful about what I share on the Internet (especially when it comes to swimwear). Next, I knew that my husband would be uncomfortable with me posting pictures of myself on the Internet in swimwear! Lastly, I didn't know if I was brave enough to show my flaws. It is one thing to wear a swimsuit on the beach when no one is looking, but it is another thing to post your picture on the web for people to analyze and ridicule. I loved this challenge so much that I had to go for it, and I must say that I am so glad I did!
I found this amazing two-piece swimsuit on Ebay. This suit is out of stock but ebay is always a great place to look for items like this. Here is the link, in case this seller adds any similar suits in the future. I refused to pay an exuberant price for a bathing suit that I am probably only going to wear once! I recommend purchasing a high-waisted swim bottom, and finding a bikini top of your liking separately. I have seen high-waisted bottoms at many places such as Ebay, Walmart, H&M, and Lane Bryant. One thing that I wish this bikini top had is more SUPPORT! The top is padded, but it would have been perfect with an underwire (you can't have it all...right). In addition, I also had to take the bikini top to my seamstress for her to take it in because it was way to big. I knew that I had to wear a coverup, but I still wanted my bathing suit to be visible. So, I decided to use my sister's scarf, that she probably doesn't even realize I still have. Overall, I was pleased with my "fatkini" look, and I feel very liberated and proud. Curvy girls rock!
