Swimming was always my default choice of exercise. I love being in the pool and getting a workout without feeling sweat drip all over me. I swam all through my pregnancy, up till the night before I delivered.
Unfortunately, I'm one of those mothers who emerged from my pregnancy very scarred around the tummy (boo hoo) and I'll probably never wear a two-piece suit again. Somehow, many of the mothers in my neighbourhood are still able to flaunt flawless tummies! Why?! Many are mothers of more than 1 kid too. I have to admit that this has made me shy away from swimming for months.
Just last week, my dear sister took me to Seafolly to get a swimsuit. I found one that fit me perfectly, with a beautiful twist around the bust area. The style and cut reflect a classic 50s feel. My initial choice was to go for a polka-dotted fabric but finally decided on a rich navy blue for more wearability. (As much as I love polka-dotted everything - a polka dotted swimsuit screams for attention, and I sometimes do not want that!)
My first swim in this piece was utterly refreshing. I promise to squeeze time for regular laps!
