BIRDSONG: Beauty Under The Sun

Post sponsored by Bare Necessities/Birdsong

There’s something about that window of late spring leading into early summer, when the days get longer, when the sun gets warmer, when the flowers are in bloom, colors are at their peak, grass is greener, it always feels like a fresh start.

Living in NYC, I don’t take access to outdoor space for granted- there’s a reason NYC is called a concrete jungle. So, having the space to relax, take in the colors, breathe in the fresh air is not only welcome, it is so appreciated. I’d be stating the obvious to say that I’m pregnant, very pregnant actually. Being very pregnant doesn’t mean that I want to run and hide, if anything I want to feel beautiful just as much as ever, if not more. 

Funny, growing up I remember that the women I saw pregnant would bury themselves in layers of clothing and hide their bodies as much as possible, as if they were supposed to be ashamed of the most beautiful body transformation that could ever happen. 

Well that was then, and this is now. I need some vitamin D, I need some good sun and whether laying out on the beach or in our backyard (and sometimes the front lawn too), I’ve learned that a small secret is really finding pieces that make you feel beautiful. This usually requires pieces that are truly designed with women at all sizes and at all stages of life in mind. Once you find the right brands, it changes everything, the frustration of finding the right size or something that fits your curves or even lack thereof, all that goes away. 

If you’re like me in swimwear shopping season, then you should check out Birdsong.

Birdsong swim brings together everything you ever wished for in a bathing suit. Birdsong is a contemporary lifestyle brand by Bare Necessities and their pieces feature great fit and great fashion, real support and real style, exceptional quality, and accessible prices—even in the “hard to find” sizes. You get to define your style, your sexy, your self, whether you’re pregnant like me or far from it.

    Loving this swimsuit! And I live in New York so I definitely know what you mean about the concrete jungle. I was glad that I was able to live in Brooklyn because it was a break away from the constant concrete that was Manhattan.
