Never in my life did I think I would be back here again. I still remember my first bikini. Baby pink, with a pineapple on the top. It was gorgeous and I wore it to exhaustion. Next followed one with a tropical print. And then another with some tiny flowers on it, canary yellow. And I never looked back at the swimsuit. Until now!
They are back, in all their glory. And I got my first one in over 20 years. Is that right? Though I’m still a huge fan of a bikini, and I won’t stop wearing them to the beach – the less the tan lines the better – I’ve become a re-convert. I used to swim when I was still living with my parents. For the last 5 years I was living in my hometown, I swam 3 times a week. Of course you have to wear a bathing suit, a cap and some swim glasses – the smell of chloride was glorious.
Now, it’s become a recreational wear. My husband shot these pictures last week at our indoor pool. It was our first time there, after a sweat sesh at the gym. It was pouring rain, he got the day off and I slipped on the swimsuit. They turned out better than I expected – even though these are just the good positions. It’s amazing how vulnerable and uncomfortable I felt. But after looking at the pictures and the post-production, I actually dug the result.
