Most people would assume because I blog taking pictures would be easy for me, but as with any other woman we all have fears about certain items. Mine was being photographed in swimwear. I have been wearing plus size swimwear since GabiFresh made the Fatkini popular but I have always been afraid to post a picture of me in mine on the Internet. Being sans clothing is very personal for me even on the beach but my Husband told me I was making a bigger deal out of it than it really was and he hoped that I came out of my shell and posted some pics on my blog of me in my swimwear so I decided to try it.
I actually felt liberated after seeing the photos he took and walking around without my cover-up when I got in to swim wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be. The key for me was finding something that was the perfect mix of showing a little skin without feeling completely immodest so the fatkini/sarong combo worked for me. I don't have the smallest stomach so the VBO (visible belly outline) doesn't work for me when I'm not swimming (and one day I might feel comfortable with it) but for now I prefer to not walk around with everything out for all the world to see so outside of the water I keep my sarong on.
If you are nervous about wearing swimwear it's probably like it was for me all in your head. Don't let your inner insecurities ruin your vacations....the things we hate about ourselves someone else may be looking at and appreciating. You don't have to have the perfect body to have a perfect vacation....just let go and enjoy yourself I know I did.
