Ok I have a problem. Bathing suit season. Ugh. I. Hate. Bathing. Suits. Why? Because I hate my body and have stretch marks on my stomach and sides!
I haven't been in a bathing suit since 2008. And it was a one piece. I was self conscious, but was with my boyfriend at the time and didn't feel like I completely wanted to die. I think I was around 190-200 at that time. I weigh less now, so you'd think I might feel more comfortable, but no.
I can't stand my body. A bathing suit is just way too "hello world look at my every fat roll, cellulite dimple and stretch mark!" It makes me so uncomfortable.
So my solution for this is just to avoid having to be in one.
But.. this guy I have gone out with has a pool and has mentioned going swimming. Like it's no big deal. Sure, it's no big deal to him! But I don't even own a swimsuit. And I don't want to prance around in a bathing suit showing my every disgusting flaw!
So to my question... what kinds of swimsuits would look best on me?
Sadly I think a bikini is out because of my stretch marks and obviously because my stomach and everything would be all hanging out there. Gross. I was thinking a monokini would be good because it would cover my stomach but still be kind of like a bikini.... what do you think of this one?
I'd like to do a one piece but I wouldn't want him to be disappointed that he's with the boring chick who wears a grandma suit.
And then there's the tankini, which would probably cover my stomach enough but still be a two piece.
I should post a picture of myself on here since I haven't done that in awhile. Maybe I will soon...
