I am pretty sure some of you knows exactly what I mean...
Being a good Brazilian woman I ALWAYS worn a two piece bikini , better yet a thong bikini.
I started wearing a thong when I was 18 years old following my tribe.
For some shocking but for my father a family tragedy.
I got away with my thongs until I got married (I was already 28 years old) and my husband sweetly said that was time for a change.
With a new last name and lot of respect for my husband I said goodbye to my tinny bikinis.
Officially I belonged to the "housewives Club" therefore behavior was need it at the beach and at pool parties.
Sometimes on a private beach or a boat I would dare to go topless but fiercely kept my full buttons on.
Several decades later and lots of changes I decided is was about time to go on vacation.
Some place warm and quiet ,hours by the beach with my books.
A new bathing suit was need it after a long winter and two years without a real vacation.
Before I started with a self mutilation process I dive into my own closet!
Big mistake! Huge!
My ass became too big, my breast too saggy, my spider veins looks like a road map and my gut makes me wonder is there a full body spanks?
Or a better off with a burkini?
I never worn a one piece or even tried one.
Should I fast until then? Or should I go to a spa instead?
Too Little too late.
Every chocolate bar, every bow of pasta I eat just because I deserved...
Now in front of a mirror of a department store I am crying and mad at the lighting and the mirror.
I called my fairy "make me look skinny by tomorrow godmother" but she is in Mexico saving lives.
Miss my thongs, my youth, my carbs and a cold beer.
So I took my meds, compromised and got a tankini!
PS: my vacation is all inclusive and definitely will be a site of a white whale.
