“I am aware of what I do and do not have!” I shouted in an echo-y pool room. This weekend I hosted a Birthday pool party for my golden birthday. I believe there was a comment about my sister and I’s assets (she is more endowed upstairs, I have a larger natural seat cushion)…and out I blurted the family secret: we know.
I have always dressed to hide my bootay, but thanks to J.Lo, Beyonce, and adulthood, I’m ok with showing off what I got (and even what I don’t!). If you would have asked me to try on a high-waisted, horizontal-striped swimsuit a couple years ago I would have laughed in your face, but as the years go on I either care way less about what others think, or care about how I’m unique way more (mixture of both?), so this spring I ordered this vintage number from ModCloth.
Not only does it accentuate my curves, it plays them up! It even makes the girls (code word for breasts) a little more…womanly. I will admit I don’t like how it hides my stomach, which is one thing I have actually always been proud of, but sometimes you gotta put the abs away for the sake of vintage fashion! I might not wear this suit religiously this summer (weirdest tan line ever?) but I’m definitely keeping it in rotation.
Thanks to my friend Joe again for snapping some pictures!
