Balmy and warm, just the way we like it! It's the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. In honor of bathing suit season being underway, we have some tips for getting "bikini" ready in case you care to bare. Rememer, it is not about having the perfect body, or a being Hollywood star- it's about confidence. If you don't have it, fake it, but we bet that you are looking great-bump and all. Check out some of our tips for looking like your best in your suit:
*If you are not comfortable wearing a suit at all, do not hide yourself in a muu-muu. Find yourself a cool cover-up and strut your stuff without baring your skin. If you are pool side, remember to keep some cool beverages handy so you don't overheat and dip your toes and legs in the pool often.
*Get rid of that hair! We know it is hard to see below that belly, but once your in public, others will know how hard it is too:) Schedule a waxing appointment to help you "clean up" if shaving is not doable. A little bit painful, but sometimes beauty is pain!
*Try on different types of suit. Your first choice might be a tankini, but you might end up looking better in a bikini- if this is your first pregnancy, try on a variety of types and brands to find something that makes you feel good. Don't give up if you don't find something right away, bathings suits can be difficult to fit, so "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again!"
* Stay out of the sun! Your skin is suseptable to pigmentation at this time and you might end up with some pretty funky spots if you over expose yourself. Put on some good spf, a chic hat then grab a few great reads and head to the shade.
Have a wonderful day!!
