The perfect little black dress for this summer season – off the shoulder and pockets. Plus it’s cotton, perfect for hot weather. Dress it up or down. I’ll be wearing this a lot.
Most of you know that I also am a Style Expert on a Canadian Show, Cityline. I do lots of make overs and segments on trends and how to dress your body. Yesterday a segment aired that I’m really proud of. I styled 5 real women and helped them find the best bathing suits for their bodies.
I wanted to share what I wrote on Instagram:
“Summer is here, the temperature is rising and now it’s time to find a bathing suit. It sounds so easy and yet is probably the most dreaded thing many women do when getting summer ready. It makes it that much harder when every woman that we see in the media in a bathing suit has a certain body and is a certain age range (the worst part is she’s been photoshopped). Click through most media ads, programming or retailer websites and tell me what you see? I don’t see myself and I bet you don’t see yourself either. I am so proud that @citylineca & @thetracymoore broke the model mode. They want to be the change and want us to love and accept our bodies. Bodies that have or are raising the next generation, bodies that are taking care of loved ones, bodies that are making our community better and bodies that are breaking ceilings and persisting. They tasked me to help viewers tackle their #FitChallenges when looking for a #bathingsuit – not problem areas, not imperfections but fit challenges (we all know that words hurt and we all have challenges). Looking at this group of models I bet most of us see ourselves. We see our bodies and how to get #bikiniready.”
