See that smug little grin? It’s the grin of a Mama who has found the perfect swimsuit. And Abigail really did – wait until you see it. Even better? Reader Elizabeth also wrote in with three seriously good options. Let’s do this!
I received this sweet note from Abigail – I found her perspective and words so uplifting, I hope you do too:
Hi Shana (and ladies!),I can’t believe I am even doing this, but Scotti’s last swimsuit post inspired me. I love one of the comments saying that if your beautiful friends were quick to find fault with their pictures, (and here we all are commending them for their bravery and beauty) then maybe, just maybe we (I) look better than we give ourselves credit for. It is hard to look at myself objectively when all I am confronted with are photoshopped pictures showing perfectly tan, dimple free, toned bodies.I commend you for taking REAL photographs, for letting us see REAL bodies-bodies you have worked hard for, bodies that have worked hard for you, bodies that have given birth, bodies that go to work everyday- and for letting us see that REALNESS.Nicole-one of your commenters- recommended this swimsuit and on a whim I ordered it, skeptically (as I have a hate/tolerate relationship with swimsuits). Lo and behold when it arrives it’s…perfect. I feel fantastic in it and I don’t think that has ever happened before. I feel sexy for my husband, appropriate to chase around my Littles at the community pool, and comfortable in my own skin in this suit. Not an easy combination to find!!So thank you Mom Edit team, for this community of support you have created and that you continue to nourish.(So without further ado..and wishing I had a bit of liquid courage and a tan- ha!- here is me in the suit)
