To the gorgeous highschool swimmer queens of the world:
I will be up entrance and say it. Making an attempt to purchase a gown for homecoming, promenade, winter formal, or some other form of fancy operate at this highschool degree has been nothing however a practice wreck for me. I am certain a lot of you all will agree. I’m a senior in highschool this yr, and have tried on a grand complete of 78 clothes. You learn that proper, 78.
The quantity I bought: 4. Not enjoyable.
I’m a kind of women that loves her swimmer construct and all the things about it: the shoulders, again, thighs, triceps, simply the entire shebang. I’m additionally one who bulks greater than shreds for a reference level. It is all of the laborious work I’ve put out and in of the pool. It is one thing I’m happy with, one thing that makes me, me.
Then it is time to get that homecoming gown. Yeahhhh.
The occasions I’ve simply stared on the mirror in these altering rooms seeing the frustration in my eyes, filled with damage have been a few of my more durable days. Whether or not it’s, the again not zipping, the straps not becoming on the shoulders, the awkward look, not having the ability to get the gown on appears in any respect as a result of all the things is simply too tight; it turns into a giant emotional course of. It does not assist seeing different women making an attempt on the identical clothes they usually match completely into a number of, whereas I am struggling to seek out one which I can zip up, tie within the again, and I’m able to put on with my faculty’s strict gown code. These are the times I really feel much less stunning, much less me, confused, damage, and alone. However women, my BEAUTIFUL, elite, buff, shredded, muscular goddesses of the swim world!
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!
It might be 23 clothes in, and you’re dropping hope, however I promise you, the gown will come! My recommendation to you beautiful women, is to attempt something. Even for those who do not like the way it seems to be on the rack, or you do not suppose it is your type, give it a shot! My gown this yr, I’ve by no means been a fan of carrying teal tones, however guess what shade the gown is…teal! And I will toot my very own horn right here. I LOOK SO GOOD! You’ll too! The second you placed on the gown, you’re going to look wonderful; and its a gown, you get to point out off the swimmer shoulders! We love the swimmer shoulders! Do not be afraid to attempt one thing new!
If a time comes, you’re in a bust, and also you simply cannot discover a gown, take a look at the remark part. Girls, I ask that you simply remark the place you may have discovered your clothes over time, so we may also help a few of those that are caught. Personally, I’ve discovered my clothes at “Altar’d State” and “Windsor”. Each are nice choices! The clothes have match me very effectively and are nice high quality!
Bear in mind women! You’re so so stunning! Every part about you screams beautiful! Do not let a gown take that mindset from you! I do know it is not straightforward some days, however on these days really embrace your self as a result of you may have put hours of laborious work into swim, and it exhibits! Hardworking ladies are so admirable! Do not forget that at all times! You’re stunning!
