Winter is coming and with it the cold days that you prefer to spend indoors. So it is time again for a few laps in the indoor swimming pool, but many lipedema sufferers don't really dare. The uncertainty and fear of rejection are strong. I can understand that and of course they will watch. Whether fat, thin, large or small - people are curious and look no matter who comes in. After all, you are relatively undressed. In the end, however, the respect for you outweighs that you defy the looks and still enjoy the movement in the water. If you're still shy, maybe take a friend with you the first few times, who can distract you a little from your fear.
A step in the right direction can already be the purchase of a great swimsuit in which you feel beautiful, comfortable and safe.

What to look out for when buying:
- Sewn-in cups
- Butt seam at a comfortable depth so that nothing slips up or in
- the right length for a secure hold
- Not too thin holders if your breasts are a little heavier

For example here:

Go out, swim and look fabulous in plus size swimwear!
