Okay so I'm doing this with hesitation because the last time I posted something involving something similar I was accused by a stranger of wanting attention.
I ordered 3 bikinis. I'm keeping them all. But I'm not feeling confident about them. I'm not asking for you to lie to me to make me feel better, but I'd like your opinions, please, because all I can see is how much work I need to do before Memorial Day weekend.
I like them all, but I think the second one is especially fabulous. Like over the top. But with THREE...well now you can wear them as you like. For example, when you get out of the pool from the morning dip and then want to go back in after lunch. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A SOGGY SUIT! Soggy suits are the living worst aren't they? That's the BEST thing about 3 bathing suits. They're all fabulous.
The first one looks like you're a Ninja Princess. Ready to take on a rugby game or compete in the Olympics at a moment's notice. Love it.
The third looks great, but it's my least favorite. Not because of how it looks on you. But because I THINK I see a bow there for the clasp on the top. Let's just say I have less than stellar stories about how tops that were held together by bows turned out for me. *delicate cough* 665 days ago
my two faves are the first one and the polka dot one. the first one shows your body to its best advantage. the polka dots seem to me like they reflect your personality the best. for some reason i feel like the color in the other one washes you out somehow. or it may be that the red isn't exactly in the right spot on your body. i can't tell which. i would say wear the top one if you are feeling particularly buffed, the polka dot one if you are feeling adorable, and the other one when you are tanned and feeling a little bit more aggressive. they all are wonderful--and i am so happy for you that you have this "dilemma"!!! 670 days ago
OMG you look great in ALL of them and they are all different. So yes keep 'em. I need to get caught up with you, but if you are going on vacay where there's water, you NEED different ones. that is a #goalsbody!!! Your work shows!!!! And what more work? You are strong and fit and it shows.
BTW, reading your comment on my blog, yes it must be frustrating - you have lost a LOT of weight and worked hard. So often people think it's easier for you or that perhaps you've always been that way if they are first meeting you. GRRR. You WORKED at it and still have to.
I am a ways from my goal so get more of the "surprised" looks when I mention that I'm a runner! Hugs. 671 days ago
I really like the polka dot one! Here's just a quick observation: if you ARE NOT feeling all that fine in the others, those with the straps across the bod and all...just think of anything that would be protruding just incase you have a heavy water weight day. Not that I think you would because you look FANTASTIC..but it's just food for thought. Out of the strappy ones...I like the black one if you are choosing between the two of them. 671 days ago
Honest opinion, I love the polka dot one. The other two are nice, but I don't find the cutouts on the bottoms flattering on many people (It's a hard look to pull off). You look great, though, and if you feel confident, that's all the should matter. And if you don't feel 1,000,000% confident, Memorial Day is still a ways away. 671 days ago
Honey, you look totally amazing. Is your inner critic taking away your enjoyment? Don't listen to her. The bikinis are cute, and your shape is enviable. Wear your bikinis and strut your stuff, girl. You look great.
Where and what exactly is it that you see work you need to do between now and Memorial Day weekend? Also, heck yea I'd rock all those bikinis if I looked like you.
Are you seeing "work" that's actually there? Or are you comparing?
Ultimately you're the one that has to be happy with the way you look.
I remember last summer when I was going swimming at a public beach. So much unproductive worry time in my head. You know what? As we walked through the campground, people looked at us not because of what we were (or weren't wearing) but because we were happily going to be taking a dip in Lake Superior (it's notorious for being wickedly cold even in summer). Better us than them!
Here's to you being happy as you rock your bikinis!
SOOOO cute! Where did you buy them? I like them in order of how you posted them. Top one is adorbs and totally modern #1 The second is super cute and retro #2 The last is cute, but the straps are not as on point as the first one #3 but still a keeper! Your tushy looks fantastic in the first one. Great job on all of your hard work! 671 days ago
You look great in all of them! I WISH I looked like that in a bikini. I have 90+ pounds to lose. Pretend that you just lost 90 pounds and you woke up with that body! You'd be doing cartwheels and strutting in that bikini! Go out and rock it! 672 days ago
I think the polka dots have cute vintage thing that works well. I don't love the shape of the bottoms but that is entirely personal...the first and third have great bikini tops though! 672 days ago
