I love the summer and I love swimming, but this is a recent phenomenon for me. After two C-sections and breastfeeding, I was very self-conscious about my body and hated to let anybody see me in a swimsuit.
Hiding wasn't that hard when I lived in NYC, then we moved to South Florida. We live 15 minutes from the ocean and have a house with a swimming pool. It was impossible not to wear a swimming swimsuit, so I decided to apply what I knew about fashion to my swimwear. To my surprise, I found ways to minimize things I am conscious about!
