No matter how big or small you are, almost all women are a little self conscience about wearing a bathing suit in public. One of my girlfriends, who happens to have on of the hottest bodies of all my friends had the BEST advice about feeling more confident at the beach or pool. She said to ‘take a look around when you get to the beach or pool, and park your butt right next to someone who is bigger than you!’
