aw, all my bikinis are solids..I have one printed one, but the bottom is so skimpy I'm terrified to wear it around too many people . Its not quite a brazilian cut, but its by a Brazilian company and they cut their bottoms kinda narrow in front and back, lol.

I'm terrified of push ups. My boobs are too massive for anything extra! I just don't know how drawing attention to the front is gonna detract from the back of my thighs, lol.

But ya, I can't wait for this trip, I'm super excited!


Picklejuice-I'm what people call "thin" and I still have it. Its mortifying.

You gals have it rough...truly you do. Mir is a very attractive gal....shouldn't be worried about this kinda thing, but she is...

Our culture has really made it tough for women to be comfortable with themselves...

I say, relax Mir, have a great time!!!

Look into dry skin brushing too. As far as tanning just get a gradual tanning lotion to use after the shower.

theres really not much yo can do about it. kind of like pregnancy stretch marks- youre gonna get or youre not- and either way, there is no fix.

wear a pair of swim shorts or a cover up if it bothers you that much. but really, no one but you cares.

The only thing that is scientifically proven to help with cellulite more than just superficially is increasing muscle mass and decreasing fat. No cremes, no brushing, no massage will do anything beyond the superficial. That means weight lifting, not running. There's no such thing as "toning" the way it is understood, exercising to give a more defined look. You can increase endurance, but that will not lead to a "toned" look. Bodybuilders do something called cutting,meaning an extreme diet to reduce fat percentage as much as possible. Again, this leads to increase of muscle mass and decrease of fat percentage if you want to rid yourself of cellulite.
