Well it's not yellow or polka dots, but it is a bikini.
Well let me take a step back and assuage your fears. I bought a tankini and matching bottoms. But as there was a sale...and nothing will make a woman spend more than she intends than a sale, I also bought a bikini top.
Even as a cute little girl I wasn't a fan of bikinis (a sense of modesty, perhaps?), instead opting for a full bathing suit, or even better -- covered by a t-shirt.
Back before my accident, I actually bought a bikini with the hopes of debuting it when I was thin and svelte. That was before all my progress was sidelined. I look at that bikini now with a feeling of regret. So I just wanted to start over.
I haven't decided whether I'm going to post photos of me in the bikini or not (soooo revealing) but I do hope that I will get to wear it sometime soon and not feel mortified. Until then I will stick to the tankini or my one-piece suit.
