Finding comfort and confidence in wearing swimwear*

It might be freezing cold outside where you
are; it certainly is where I am… But it is never to early to think about spring
and summer, especially when the days are slowly but surely getting longer again
and the sun seems to be out more often. If you look beyond that cold crisp air,
you can almost smell sweet spring approaching.

And what is spring/summer without an almost
mandatory visit to the beach or a day at a pool? I think I have spent about one
or two summers without a single visit to the beach and let me tell you those
were the worsts summers of my life. There is just something special about the
ocean that makes me so happy.

Getting past the fear of wearing swimwear

Now lets be real, bikini season also comes
with the unnecessary insecurities and cover-ups.  Personally, it was only last summer that I
gained somewhat more confidence to even post a picture of myself in swimwear on
social media. I came to realise that, yes, there are things I would like to
change about my body but that doesn’t mean that my body isn’t good or perfectenough now. Nobody is perfect, that’s also what makes us so unique. Learn to
love (or at least come to terms with) your ‘imperfections’. 

Finding the right type of swimwear for your body shape

Most of this confidence is related to
finding the right type of swimwear for you/your shape. I noticed I feel most
comfortable and confident in one-pieces (click here for some inspiration).
Somehow they seem to flatter my shape more and I also love the extra cover-up. The
only way to find out which styles suit you best, or make you the most
confident, is by trying as many as possible. Luckily, Zaful offer a great deal
of affordable and fashionable swimsuits that might just be the ones for you!

If you are worried about tan lines, bikinis
might be a more suitable option for you. There are so any different styles out
there nowadays, I am sure you will find one that you like. Be it sporty, sexy,
frilly or printed. Every year white bikinis seem to be having a moment. Just
make sure that yours come with lining, otherwise you might end up flaunting
more than just your gorgeous bikini! Here are some cute white swimsuits. 

If you haven’t heard of the website before I highly recommend checking out the Zaful blog as they have some really cute clothes for affordable prices! 

Lots of Love,
