I have recently started a new medication and a side affect is gaining weight. I did gain weight and after that I was pretty self-conscious about going out in a swimsuit. Every time I would look for a plus size swimsuit , they wouldn't be cute or they would look like they were for older women. I found this plus size swimsuit and I love it! It is so cute and so comfortable. I feel comfortable going out in public in a swimsuit again and that makes me feel awesome.
