Full Figure Bathing Suits- NOT for Grandma

It's MARCH aka time to find a bathing suit season.  Whoopee.. So we're a little old for spring break, and I've got a little too much going on for a string bikini.  Don't get me wrong, if you want to wear a bikini- go for it!  For me though, I'd feel a little more secure (mentally and boob-ally) with a little more coverage and support.  Lucky for us, one pieces are all the rage right now!  or so I thought...I'm a 36 DD, so I was all for it when Target and Victoria's Secret started carrying swimsuits with bra sizes.  Usually though, they pretty much only do that with bikinis.  Turns out if you want a one piece, you can either get one with literally 0 ...

Everyone is crazy for contouring, right?  If done correctly, it can add so much definition and bring out your natural bone structure.  Common question:Molly, should I use a highlighter on boudoir day?The kind of highlighter most of y'all mean is "strobing"- a powder, liquid, or cream you use to add shimmer to your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, under your eyebrows, and even to your forehead and chin.  The idea is to give your skin that "glow", dewy finish to make you look younger and more radiant.  Here's the thing... In front of the camera, unless you have FLAWLESS skin, too much strobing will just highlight all the little bumps, scars, and pores you're trying so ...
