Palm Print Bikini

Hey Everyone!
The swimsuit I spent celebrating Mother's Day weekend is definitely one of my all-time favorites! 
It's perfect for leisurely beach or pool activities like lying out in the sun, the cut isn’t really suitable for beach volleyball or boogie boarding or anything like that.  LOL

This swimsuit was designed for your body to receive the maximum amount of sun kisses!   The top has a familiar triangle bikini fit with a fun and stylish strappy back. The bottoms are a personal favorite of mine; they have a smooth high-cut, cheeky fit that sits on top of my hips nicely.  I have thick thighs so higher cut bikini bottoms are usually more comfortable and better defines the curves of my body without cutting off circulation.  I’ll be hunting for more colors and prints soon to show you all!

The Most Annoying Question RE: My Body


First, let's the define the word confident:
Having a feeling or belief that you can do something well or succeed at something : having confidence

For me, having confidence signifies that there's a potential of flaw, mistake, humiliation, or a risk of some type of embarrassment.  We say things like, "She spoke confidently with the data she provided" because there's room for error.

When you call me 'brave' or 'confident' in regards to my body, it is because YOU (not me) have self-consciously identified a reason for me to be uncertain. 

If you really think about it, you only need confidence or bravery if you have identified a potential risk.   Could you imagine someone telling you, "Wow, you're so brave for drinking that water!"  First thought for anyone would be, there's a reason you shouldn't be drinking that water!  Apply that same thought-process to being called confident for wearing a swimsuit at the beach.  To me, this just suggests that I shouldn't be wearing a swimsuit in one way or another.  

I get it, society says, "beauty, blah, blah, blah, standards, blah!"... But here is where your own self awareness comes to into play!  Once you've made yourself aware of your own personal health and body, everything else in society is completely intangible, subjective opinion.

So to answer the incessant question, when it comes to my body, I'm not brave or confident.  I just exist.
...Call me brave when I slay a dragon or something.


Comment your thoughts!  Do you feel words like 'brave' or 'confident' are needed in the body image discussion?
