Well, I never thought I would see this day. The day I publish a picture of myself in a swimsuit on the blog! But, I simply had to since this is the best, most comfortable and functional swimsuit I have ever owned.
As a short and curvy girl in a society that praises tall and waif-like frames, I admit that I have never felt confident in a swimsuit. My large chest always made even the most modest of bikinis look inappropriate, and one pieces tended to make me look even shorter and rounder, if not matronly. So, for years I simply avoided going in the water. I mastered the art of the cute coverup and simply gave up on swimwear. That was until I found this Trina Turk suit.
Not only is the sleek shape of this one-piece flattering (and not matronly), it is also comfortable and functional. I felt like I could truly enjoy myself in the water and not worry about losing or falling out of my top. It can be worn on the shoulders for extra support, or off for a more modern silhouette. Off the shoulder it hides perfectly under a cute off-the-shoulder cover up, like this Max & Co. number I picked up in Florence.
I loved this suit so much, I even purchased it in this fun pattern. I have to admit, being able to feel comfortable and confident in a swimsuit is a game changer. I forgot how fun and refreshing the water can be!
