what’s up with the brazilian?

22 Jun

A couple of months ago while vacationing in Pelion I realized I had forgotten my bikini back home. This was annoying & pretty frustrating as we were planning to spend half of our days on the beach.

Although my dark grey colored bra looked fine while enjoying the sun, sea and sand with my sister and co, I knew I had to find another solution in case we wanted to go to the beach with friends.

I then decided to try to find a decent one on our next trip to town. I know what I like and want and what suits me therefore I was confident enough to let the remaining family wait in the car while I was on the hunt for the just perfect, not too expensive bikini.

After failing to find one in one of my typical shop of choice (Zara), I discovered a tiny little underwear shop just across the street. Huh, found it, I thought to myself. In I go, with my confident, positive attitude and begin the hunt for the perfect bikini.

Me: Hi

Underwear shop employee: Hello, what can I do for you?

Me: Well… I forgot my bikini back in Athens and would really like to find one which is nice, yet not too expensive (from the look on her face she seemed she had just been given an information overload).

Her: Ok….so, what are you looking for?

Me: Nothing too fancy, no glitter, no diamonds, something simple. 

With a completely disappointed look on her face – I could tell she was dying to show off the collection of bikinis which weighed more than a watermelon from the accessories attached to them – she guided me to the less obvious section.

Me: Aaaa…Here we are. Pink, lilac, orange, black. Pretty straight forward simple strapless tops. After I showed her the colors of my choice on the top rail, she asked me to choose the bottom ones (it was a mix and match kinda thing). 

Great colors with one catch. They were all brazilian cut bottoms. Some more and some less. There was no freaking normal bottom. Don’t get me wrong. I think the brazilian cut is THE sexiest cut of all, provided you have THE perfect butt or OK pretty-damn-close-to-perfect butt.

While she was trying very hard to convince me that I have the body for a brazilian and after all the brazilian cut is super fashionable this year (never cared too much about what is in and what is out, I usually go with what looks good on me), she talked me in to trying them out.

Ok, I thought, no harm done (husband and kids still in the car).

I did make the effort. I was almost convinced that why the heck not, I can pull that of.

Well….I can’t. Or, I won’t.

It’s not that I feel ashamed of my not perfect body. I have come to terms with the fact that I have given birth to two children and my body is not the same as twenty years ago. I don’t exercise on a regular basis and I love food wayyyyyyy toooooo muuuuuuccchhhhh to diet. So, my body has changed. And I am fine with that. Really. I just don’t see the point in showing the rest of the beach world my not so perfect butt.
