This is my own personal Bikini Debate. And it is two-fold.
1)Should I wear a bikini at all?
2)Which one should I buy?
I recently wrote a post about my desire to cancel my Victoria's Secret magazine. In this post I talked about how much I don't appreciate those underwear models coming into my house uninvited. I also wrote about how my friend Casey told me that once I got married I would be way more aware of other woman's attire around Philip and my own attire around other people's husbands. Well she was right. Last year I bought a 1-piece bathing suit. Voluntarily. I wasn't even going to church camp!
Last year I also wore a shirt over my bikini 99.9% of the time. Something happened to me. Even around family I was just kinda like "or. OR. I could keep tank top on" This mindset made for a very pale stomach. Woo I was glowin' in the dark!
Besides that I wasn't/am not completely in love with my stomach. I may be small but I am not very fit. - Well I started my yoga journey in September so since then I has for sure gotten stronger. But that's not the point.
The point is this- if I am not ok with supermodels in their underwear being seen by my husband how is it then ok for me to wear a bikini on the boat or at the pool? Are underwear and Bikinis the same?
I don't think they are. I think underwear is naughtier it's sexier. Usually models are in the process of taking it off in the picture. While giving bedroom eyes.
If you didn't know - I am going to Hawaii in April for 12 days! Even though I am TERRIFIED of flying I am really excited about it! Philip and I have been doing the 21 Day Fix in order to get healthy but I am planning on doing it again the 3 weeks leading up to vacation to get more beach ready. So after all of my hard work I might want to wear a bikini. In Hawaii!
I probably won't be posting any pictures of my full frontal bikini on Facebook or this blog. But I will probably lay out in one. But then what about any unsuspecting males on the said beach?? Well it's not like I am going to be taking pictures of myself, photoshopping them and then mailing it to your house.
I've heard people say modesty is more about your mind set and heart than your clothes. I don't think this gives me license to walk around butt naked but I do think lounging by the ocean with my man in a bikini won't send me to hell.
SOOO With all of that being said...
Philip told me that we can afford for me to get a new bathing suit for Hawaii! I AM SO EXCITED! So I have it narrowed down to a few choices. (I am still not sure if I will even a bikini) this is where you come in! Every bathing suit I have bought for the past, oh 7 years, has been red, white, and blue, nautical and/or had an anchor on it (shocking!) So I want to branch out! There are other others out there besides Navy, Coral, Yellow, Red, and White. At least that's what people tell me!
So here are my choices! (Mind you I will never look like those models and I will try and get a bigger size in the tops to help keep cleavage to a minimum)
A)Philip doesn't like the colors in this one but I like that is looks like a sports bra and has more coverage
B) This one is reversible and would be like 2 in 1!
D) This is one is only sooorta nautical.
Thanks For Voting!
What do you think about Bikinis?
