Swimsuit season: it’s not quite upon us, but it’s fast approaching. Racks upon racks of colorful pieces are appearing in stores, catching the eye with polka dots, stripes, and endless colors.
The sales and new trends are exciting, but they are also a reminder that swimsuit season is truly coming. That means actually wearing a swimsuit.
Somehow, every year the coming of swimming sections in stores and warmer weather still comes as a shock. During the winter months, one can wear nice, large sweatshirts and not give a care. Before everyone knows it, it’s going to be time to hit the beach, and yes, shave their legs.
It’s easy to let go during the months of winter. Sweatpants, pants in general, excess food, and the warm indoors are things many people enjoy at this time. It’s frightening to make the transition from being constantly bundled to being near-naked in a swimsuit.
Self-esteem drops and gym memberships increase. Although it is easy to feel bad about oneself, really, swimsuits are made for the purpose of swimming, or staying cool.
Even though buying a suit may be synonymous with stress for some, don’t sweat it. Remember, even though it’s “that time of year,” summer is going to come soon. Sun’s out, guns out.
