I have swimsuit confidence- thanks to Lands’ End!


When Lands’ End (in partnership with the Curvy Girl’s Guide) contacted me to celebrate National Swimsuit Confidence week of May 23-27, and wanted me to review a swimsuit I thought “sure, no problem”. I’d post my review and include the actual photo from their site of the model paid to wear it.


Because she looks darn good in it.

But oh no… Lands’ End wanted me to show YOU what I looked like in the suit.


I mean, why not? I’ve been hitting the gym quite a bit, down 4.8 pounds (I might have mentioned this in an earlier blog) so I know I can do this.

So 50+ photos taken later I give you: me in a Lands’ End swimsuit

I absolutely LOVE the retro flare to this suit, and the cute little skirt in the front.

But the best part of all? I feel put together. I’m not going to fall out. I’m not going to have a wardrobe malfunction. I’m telling you whoever designed this thing, really had women in mind.

This is the first time I’ve ever gotten to say/write the following statement:

My boobs are NOT going ANYWHERE in this swimsuit!

And trust me, that says a lot.

*Dear FTC: I was provided a swimsuit by Lands’ End to review. You’re out of your mind if you think I’d lie to my readers about how great it is. No money exchanged hands. Got it? Good.
