Fatshion Friday: Fat Babe Pool Party

A few weeks ago Jess and I were invited over to our blogger babe Allie's apartment for a pool party.  Jess and I both *love* swimming, so we were super excited to go spend a beautiful day at Allie's rooftop pool gossiping, tanning and eating ice cream.

That day, I did something that challenged myself. I decided to wear a bikini, knowing the environment would be a safe space where I could be confident in my own skin. Jess and Allie always rock the 'fatkini' and look amazing while doing it! I find that my self confidence comes in waves and sometimes I feel I can pull off a bikini, and other times I do not.I also know that for me, there is a parallel between feeling exposed (ha! blog pun) and having lower levels of self confidence.

A few months ago, I purchased my very first adult bikini from Addition Elle (on sale). I haven't worn a bikini since I was a child, so I was nervous to take the plunge and purchase one. I searched for the right suit, I wasn't into hastily picking up the first one that caught my eye. I found *the* one. I eventually worked up the confidence, and brought it up to the register. Funny enough, I was only able to find the bottoms at the store this day. Thanks to my body positive momma, I was able to locate the top which she purchased for me. She was super supportive of me wearing a fatkini, and I love that she feels that way.

I felt unbelievably confident wearing this suit (I had worn it once before, but I had never photographed it, let alone shared those images on the internet!!). My recommendation for those considering purchasing their first 'fatkini' is to look around, try different colours and styles to find one you really love. You will certainly look beautiful in whatever you try, but if YOU are not confident and comfortable in it, it will show. Beauty is a reflection from within. If you feel confident, then you will radiate confidence.

Note: This blog post is extremely pun-heavy... with no intention to make it that way, oops!
