I Have Swimsuit Confidence – Celebrate National Swimsuit Confidence Week #landsend

When Lands’ End asked me to show off my swimsuit confidence I was a little uneasy. Being 9 months pregnant and due in a matter of weeks the last thing I want to do is be in a swimsuit let alone be photographed in one. I decided after some thought, why not? We’ll be spending a whole lot of time at the pool this summer so I might as well show off now.

Lands’ End allowed me to pick out a swimsuit that I thought matched my body and while I found so many Lands’ End Swimsuits that I liked there was one that was perfectly me. Being a mom now I always go with tankinis and there were so many great ones to pick from, plus you can mix and match your bottoms and tops. I decided on a very stylish suit that feels young and fresh, the Women’s Floral Beach Print Tankini Top and matching Retro Brief as my bottoms.

I just love the suit and even though I’m 9 months pregnant it fits me great and I know it will fit even better here in another month when we hit the pool.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more on this topic,
    it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t speak about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

    You look confident in that suit. Have you been able to swim (or at least float)?

    you look so cute! cute swimsuit. I have more confidence when I am pregnant to wear a swim suit and show off the belly, but after being pregnant, i hide from swimsuits for a long time
