Bathing Suits that Make You Look 10 Pounds Slimmer | Miraclesuit Swim Giveaway
This post is sponsored by Miraclesuit, bathing suits that make you look 10 pounds slimmer. All opinions are my own. BTW, my opinion is my ass looks much better in a Miraclesuit! 😉
Swimming season is in full swing. Are you even a mom if you haven’t hung by the side of pool for hours while various kids yell, “Watch me! Watch me! Look at this! See what I can do?”
Gone are the days of lounging in a cute suit, sipping margaritas, gossiping with your bestie while waiting for a cute shirtless dude to ask you out. Well, gone for me, at least. If that’s still you, rock it, mama!
But for me, swimsuit season is now more about hanging with groups of friends or family who also have kids. While the parents also have some fun, mostly we are just trying to make sure no one drowns.
And the kids always want mom and/or dad to play with them in the water. But a lot of moms, myself included, are self-conscious about how they look in a bathing suit. We hide under a cover-up and tell our kids we don’t want to get wet.
Well, I’m done with that shit. I don’t want to be remembered as mom on the shore. I want to live in the moment, experience summer with my kids, and feel cute doing it!
As I’m writing this post, I’m already worried about how I’ll be judged for worrying about my appearance. How shallow of me. But I’m just being honest. I do worry. For too long, my appearance defined a huge part of my identity. (I’m a former pageant girl and model…. I know, crazy, right?) I’ve found a new kind freedom since having kids.
Now in my 40’s (very early 40s!) I finally go out into the world without wearing makeup on a regular basis. I may have a mummy tummy and thicker thighs now, but I can honestly say, I’ve never been stronger. I’ve gone back to taking ballet lessons after 20 years. Though it’s frustrating that I can’t do many of the things I could when I was 20, I also appreciate ballet in a whole new way. I’m much more attuned to my body’s alignment now and am discovering little tweaks I never thought of when I was younger and could just push myself.
About three years ago, I finally tried my first swimsuit from Miraclesuit. The itty bitty bikinis of my youth just weren’t an option anymore. But I still wanted to look…well, hot. Miraclesuit’s tag line is, “Look 10 lbs Lighter in 10 Seconds®” And it’s really true!
I’ve owned a few different suits but the Jena is by far my favorite. It sucks in my mummy tummy and turns my curves into a plus rather than something to be self-conscious about!
