I am pretty self concious about my hips. I am not normally super self concious but I have been working hard at the gym and yoga to try to lose some weight for my wedding next june, so I have LOTS of time for that.. but bathing suit season is upon us and I am going away to a cottage for the weekend in a couple of weeks and I need to buy a new bathing suit but am really nervous/ dont know how I will ever feel comfortable! I dont like one peices.. I plan on trying a couple on maybe but would really like some advice if anyone else is going through some anxiety about this or has some tips for bathing suit shopping for ther body type.
My stomach is somewhat okay, it is just my arms legs and HIPS that are worrying me. I am 5’4 and weight 164.. so just slightly on the side of not being comfortable.
Help 🙁 I am so anxious.. especially since all of the other girls are very thin and toned and look great in anything!

@Seashells7: Hi! First, I’d like to say that I know the feeling. It’s almost swimsuit season and even though I’ve been working out more, I still see cellulite and fat parts. But the trick is this: remember that most women, and some men, are feeling the same way. Even if you’re really thin, there is likely some part of your body that you dislike. My advice is go swimsuit shopping. Try on a bunch of suits of different styles. Maybe try boyshorts or at least fuller coverage on your bottom. My rear is on the larger side and I dislike my thighs as well, so when I shop this season, I’ll be looking for fuller bottom coverage. Not only does it cover but supports as well.
If you’re still self conscious, you can always wear shorts, a pretty sarong, or a coverup when you’re out of the water. But say this to yourself every day: “i am hot” and believe it. You are beautiful, don’t worry so much.

Also try to keep reminding yourself that NO ONE is thinking about your body as much as you are. People go to the beach to have fun, not to analyze every woman’s figure fault.
