Flash the Flesh Part 3


When a group of bloggers join together for a chat you know that the final result has to be super!! This happened once more when, a few weeks ago, we were talking about our preferences between mini and maxi and Becky  thought that it would be great to create a challenge which goal was to show a little bit more skin and our body (but with style and no vulgarity) showing proudly our curves. And so it was born “Flash the Flesh”.

This is now the third installment in the Flash the Flesh challenge and all the women involved have done brilliantly.   After the second challenge the idea was bandied around about doing a beachwear edition.  Cue me running away at lightening speed.

But then, a funny thing happened.  I came back.  I looked at the idea afresh, saw some of the other bloggers in the challenge saying “Definately” “Why not” and “I’m in” with no hesitation.   I wanted that lack of hesitation.   So here I am. 

I bought this swimdress a couple of years ago for a wedding/holiday with my best friend, her husband to be and some of our closest friends.   Unfortunately where I bought it from completely escapes me, not very helpful, I know.

I apologise for the rabbit in headlights expression on my face in the picture.  Every voice in my head is telling me not to be in this challenge and definately not to post these pictures but I won’t listen to it. 


I only added this photograph this morning after reading some of
the other posts.  If they can do it, so can I.


A gratuitous breast shot to distract you from the other two pictures

So there you have it! Me in a swimdress and a wrap, on the internet.  Without evening seeing the other posts I know already that I haven't been as brave as some of the other ladies, but it is a giant step for me; which I am glad that I have taken.

What swimwear are you wearing this Summer?

  5. You look fabulous! I love the swim dress and I have to say, you have the most amazing legs! Good on you for taking part in the challenge; I wouldn't be so brave to pose in swimwear on the internet. I don't even like sharing those photos of me with anyone outside my immediate family xx
