I was thrilled that Rachel of Waffles and Cereal responded to my call for happy swimsuit memories. If her post takes you back to some of your own adventures in a swimsuit like it did for me, please share them in the comments!
We always had a vast selection of swimsuits to choose from. Living in the Midwestern United States, where the summers are nearly unbearably hot and humid, meant that we were allowed (and even encouraged!) to wear swimsuits every single summer day. Aside from the moments spent as an aspiring circus performer, I also wore my suits to the community pool, running through the sprinklers in our yard, climbing trees, riding my bike to my best friends’ house . . . the list goes on. My childhood was defined by those summers and those swimsuits.To this day, I’m happiest when I’m in my suit! Even though my body is definitely shaped differently and I am somewhat more self-conscious, I still feel the most like myself when I’m running around in a swimsuit and splashing through water.
