Celebrate National Swimsuit Confidence Week Lands’ End Giveaway

This week all week long is National Swimsuit Confidence Week. Last year was the first year for me to have swimsuit confidence. I received a swimsuit from Lands’ End and I LOVED it. I loved how it sucked me in everywhere and I think it made me look great, and I posted the photo of myself for all the world to see. Ok, just the few of you that come by and visit my blog. So when Lands’ End contacted me this year and asked me to participate in National Swimsuit Confidence Week I had to say yes.

Starting earlier today, Curvy Girl Guide hosted and will be hosting for the rest of the week a twitter chat with Lands’ End about swimsuit confidence. Not only are they hosting the conversation but they are also sharing their swimsuit photos along with me. Or rather, I’m posting mine along with theirs. See:

Lands End Swimsuit

I picked out Women’s Regular All-Over Control Slender Grecian Swimsuit, and I think it makes me look taller and slimmer! Even though most of you may look at me and think I don’t have anything to worry about by showing my picture of myself in a swimsuit, and even though I did it once last year, and even though I even vlogged from the shower two weeks ago, I’m still very self conscious of how I look. It’s all about how each of us perceive ourselves and that’s why I’m really grateful to Lands End for hosting National Swimsuit Confidence Week. They are reminding us all that it doesn’t matter what shape our body is. It’s how we hold ourselves up and what we think of ourselves that matters. The 21 women form Curvy Girl Guide are all real women just like me of all different body shapes. All of them are proudly sporting their Lands’ End swimwear helping to build swimsuit confidence for women this summer at the beach and I’m now ready to confidently join them!

Lands’ End makes a great quality bathing suit with the ability to hold you in in all the right places, and since I have a bathing suit from last year too, I can tell you that they hold up to the test of time.

You all have the opportunity to participate in National Swimsuit Confidence Week too, and you can even win some very cool prizes.

    I’m most comfortable in a swimsuit that has some ‘control’ to it! Most suits have not enough coverage support at the top, but when I get a suit that fits the top of me, it is baggy at the bottom!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Betty C says

    I only feel comfortable in a swimsuit that fully covers me. When I was younger I had a much better body and wore a bikini but my figure and my age prohibit that now :)

    Unfortunately, I don’t feel comfortable wearing any kind of swim wear in public because I have stretch marks. I lost a lot of weight, but even though I wasn’t that overweight before I got horrible stretch marks. All my sisters have had children and they don’t have marks like I do. Why?!
