Bathing suits used to be my worst nightmare and I dreaded the summer because I dreaded having to wear a bathing suit. I guess I was not comfortable in my own skin. But now I realize I just wasn't picking the right suit!
I wish I knew then what I know now! It's about faking it until you make it! Smoke and mirrors… And really just picking up the suit that fits you to a T!
One of the coolest parts about my job is that I get to work with so many unique women. I get to work with girls from every walk of life, and with every physique imaginable. What's really cool is that all of us like different things, especially when it comes to swimwear.
Naomi likes fluorescent colors-bold, neoprene one piece high leg cut suits are hot this season and so IN right now! Thank you Kim K and Kylie Jenner! (Just check out their Instagram pages and you'll see what I'm talking about!). Girls I work with like Nikki Bella and Lana are very high fashion. Nikki can rock a delicate For Love and Lemons lace bikini like nobody’s business. White lace is so IN this season especially for a bride to be!
Brie Bella is bohemian chic all the way!! A total hippie at heart! Something that's super-hot this season is crochet, which I see Brie in. Crochet is super modern with a little boho twist. Hello Festival Vibes!
Renee Young knows how to embrace that rocker chick, too! Renee can own the front lace-up one piece suit with side ties, showing just enough skin in all the right places. Then you have girls like my other colleagues in the WWE, Maryse or Eva Marie, who can pull of just about anything including my favorite, a bare shoulders bikini with an ultra-feminine, off the shoulder cut. Raspberry is also a hot color.... maybe even the color of the season. (And it's low carb! LOL!)
I'm also loving a high neck halter! Victoria’s Secret has some awesome suits like this with mesh and are super flattering to show off shoulders and still accentuate a little cleavage. I can see the super athletic Charlotte Flair (my arch enemy!) rocking one of these like the nature girl that she is.
For me, Nattie, being curvier, I love anything nude or with mesh. These can work well with a lot of different body types. Nude always helps to create the illusion of being slimmer and mesh is great to cover trouble areas but still make you feel like you're showing a little skin in all the right places.
The most important swimsuit essential:
Confidence. Remember, there is no one quite like you in the world and that is truly beautiful.
