a bikini wearing girl...back in the day that is

Posted on September 05, 2016 by Debbie Kuhn | 0 Comments

Imagine being in first grade and being really shy and sweet.  Then imagine being part of an elementary school style show.  That sounds all well and good, right?  Well…now imagine yourself walking down the make shift runway and when you get to the end, you have to remove your poncho to reveal a baby-blue bikini and the crowd cheers and claps while you make your way back to the stage.

Well…that was me in the style show and why my mom chose to make shy me a bikini I have no idea.  I have asked her on different occasions and the response I get is, “You were so cute, Debbie”.  Maybe so, but I remember being extremely nervous when it was time to remove the poncho, but I did, and the crowd cheered me on while I strutted my stuff in that darn baby-blue bikini. 

Fast forward to now, and we at girltrunks, feel there should be an alternative for those that don’t want to feel shy, awkward or uncomfortable in a swimsuit.  We want you to strut your stuff feeling confident, stylish and joyful while you enjoy all your favorite activities around water.
