The Unapologetic Bikini - A Call to Action

As a 43-year-old mother of five, I had fallen into a trap I never thought I would: I had become a one-piece swimsuit wearer – don’t get me wrong, it’s cleverly designed as a two piece, I think they call it a “tankini,” because who has time to take off their entire swimsuit to go potty? Not THIS mom. But you see, as a child, I loved the water, I loved my bikinis, not because I thought I was all that, but because they made me feel fearless and like a mermaid. My slow crawl away from beloved bikinis may not seem like much to you, but to me, it represented something bigger and more subversive than a mere fashion choice.
