Yeehaw, ladies! It’s our favorite time of year – the sun is shining, the daily grind seems a bit slower, a beverage is in hand, and the great outdoors is calling our name. There’s just one problem… the dreaded swimsuit is, how do I say it nicely, not calling our name!
No matter how much you prepare, we all have our insecurities about letting it all hang out. Whether you are a mom or not, I think we can all relate to this hilarious and very accurate video by the talented and brutally honest comedians Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley from I Mom So Hard:
All joking aside, swimsuits are clearly not made equally. And what is even more discouraging, most swimsuits on the racks of your favorite big box stores are not made for the outdoors.
Seriously, can you imagine hiking up Panther Creek Falls or fishing on the Columbia River with strings and cutouts and barely-there coverage? No, thank you!
Women who like to venture outside, in the majestic mountains or in the inviting clear waters, deserve flattering swimsuits made to move.
So that’s why I’m sharing a few suits that I think will do the job. Suits that will keep you focused on the beauty of mother nature and not the constant worry of pulling and tugging. P.S. some of these are even on sale — bonus!
Oh, and as a disclaimer, I tried to keep one-pieces out of the mix because have you ever had to relieve yourself in the middle of a forest with twigs and ferns going every which direction?! Yeah, let’s keep this as simple as possible!
Tell us. What’s the best swimsuit you’ve found for the great outdoors?
