Now that it’s officially swimsuit season, I’m throwing low self esteem to the wind and embracing my curvy girl body. After having three children and 10 years out of the work force, my body has packed on a few extra pounds, but you know what? I’m okay with it. Why? Because when I wear my Lands’ End swimwear, I feel good about the way I look. Whether you’re a size 8 or 18, Lands’ End offers swimwear to fit the needs of your body.
I first discovered Lands’ End swimwear last summer when I ordered a two piece set from the “Flatten Tummy” collection which offers styles for women with less than perfect tummy shaping. This year I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit and decided to try the Beach Living Geo Print Bandeau Tunic Top that offers cinched fabric that easily hides tummy and hip flaws. It also offers the option of going strapless (seen below) which I find to be nice for losing the tan lines. Paired with the flirty but flattering Beach Living Shirred Mini it turns out to be quite a cute swimsuit entirely appropriate for a “mom body”.
Disclosure – Lands’ End provided me with a swimsuit, opinions expressed are my own.
