We honestly don't get to give back as much as we would like to, but a couple weeks ago, we got to partner with Always and Target to get involved in an incredible organization, Girls on the Run. In case you all haven't heard about it before, it is a non-profit that helps young girls pursue their dreams and empowers them with confidence through a physical activity-based program.
Swimwear season is not here just yet, but come a couple of months, it will be! Does that make you all nervous? I am definitely not super insecure about being in a swimsuit, but the insecurities I do have, along with most girls, are probably pretty normal. Since getting healthier and changing my lifestyle, I have definitely lost a little bit of body fat.
Girls, you all know what happens to a certain area of your body when you lose weight and body fat, right? Don’t be shocked, but a couple of years ago, I wore a size D or DD cup in bras. Yup, I know. Now, I am probably a B at the most! Needless to say, I am lacking in the chest department. I am not super self-conscious about it, but there are a ton of bikini tops that don’t quite fit the same way they used to. I definitely have to pick out certain bikini tops that I know won’t accentuate how “flat” I look.
Sometimes, my sister and I joke about how we look like we have pecs because our chests are so non-existent. It is definitely hard to go from having a decent sized breast size to feeling like you have nothing. Obviously in clothes, you can wear a more padded bra, but in a swimsuit, it is different. What you have is, well, what you have. Can you all relate to this? There are definitely times that I would rather put on a top or dress to cover up my flat chest in a swimsuit 😉
