We teamed up with astrologer Jennifer Racioppi to learn how to shop for sunshine AND your astrological sun sign. Check out Jennifer’s all-new take on finding the suit for you!
Exposing your skin in a swimsuit takes courage and confidence. While buying a new suit can feel challenging, it does not need to induce anxiety. Bathing suit shopping, after all, provides another opportunity to embrace precisely where you are—right now—without needing to fix or change anything, but rather, enhance what’s already awesome about you!
We tend to think of astrology as nothing more than an anecdotal forecast, but inherent in our sun sign lies direction for living a life of body confidence, too. Living in sync with the truth of who you are, after all, is one of the sexiest things you can do.
