This shot of Britney came out several months back. It was a re-touch of a Candie's ad that she did last fall. The pop-princess was cool enough to remain unfazed by the fact the the world was seeing what her derier really looked like. This makes me love her even more than I did when I was 16..
These pictures got me thinking about my own fear of bikini season. I am not what people would consider overweight - but I also have less and less of a desire to "hit the gym". I am more likely to come home from work exhausted, hit a glass of wine and the bed. That means that though my backside may be small, it is not what one would consider "toned".
Luckily, working in the beauty industry for the past decade has taught me a lesson that we should all learn: If you have a skin/body/hair issue, there is a 99% chance that there is a product that will help.
I look at going to a pool party the same way that I did going to the prom in the sense that I start preparing a week in advance. I believe firmly that with four steps, anyone can feel better in a bathing suit.
