Starting today, May 23, Lands End is encouraging women to have confidence in their bathing suits! Trust me, I know it’s not easy. I actually don’t have any confidence when wearing a swimsuit. I’ve never found a one piece that looks right on me. You wouldn’t catch me in public wearing a bikini, but on my porch hidden by the railing. I will, however, wear a tankini and boy shorts or a skort at the beach. Maybe with a Lands End bathing suit I’d have a different perspective.
I have a funky body. That means I have to buy bathing suit pieces separately. I’m small from the waist up (bummer) and wider from the waist down. How I got that lucky I’ll never know. *dripping with sarcasm*Lands End is starting its first National Swimsuit Confidence Week May 23 - 27, 2011 to get us ladies geared up for getting into bathing suits this summer. They’re doing that by spending the week on Twitter having parties!!
