I’ve been wanting to show my bikini for such a long time, but with all the obvious slight creepiness it brings about I never did. Until now! Flickr has not only taught me of the obvious tights and socks fetishes but also of slightly more marginal cardigan fetishes and the like. I just figured, whatever I do there’ll always be some unwanted attention. Also, seeing as it’s been so hot the past week this is basically what I wore most of the time, it’s just too hot to not only wear a decent outfit but also think of one. I can’t seem to cool off despite it having rained these past two day, blergh! And because I am currently doing a school project called ‘my magnificent body’ (love) I often take pictures of myself (to draw from, so these aren’t artistic photos or anything, not that I am capable of artistic photos whatever). So these are two of them.
Even though I’ve accepted possible creeps lurking I am putting these photos behind a cut anyway. Seriously.
I tend to occasionally lounge about my studio in this bikini. And with occasionally I mean a lot. I mean, look at it! The back has a detail once ingeniously named ‘bum wrinkles’. I can pull the briefs as high or as low as I want and it is just damn comfy!
I used to buy those shoddily-made retail bikinis until I just got so horribly fed up with worrying if everything was still in place etc. that I saved up for these. They are made by a local designer and I love it so! A couple of weeks back I went into the wildest water slide imaginable (I think I mentioned I almost drowned like three time PER RIDE?) and everything stayed put on me while everyone else’s bathing suits kept slipping off, hee!
Ignore my slightly dopey poses and out of focus face, I suppose. I didn’t mean to publish these at the time.
The great thing about this school project is how I’ve come to realise I’ve completely accepted my body. Two years ago I would’ve never thought whole acceptance would even be possible, but here I am all satisfied and happy with my body. Because, not only do I love my body for all the sensory pleasure it gives me, I am also thankful it works properly. I’ve come to see my body as a well-oiled organic machine that needs to be taken care of rather than an object that needs to be scrutinised and admired by others… And I am so much happier than before 😀
