13 Things That Happen When College Girls Try On A New Bathing Suit
Taylor Coffrey

Spring Break is creeping up on us, guys and gals. It will be a blast when it comes, but the preparation is the worst, amirite?

At the top of the list: bathing suits. Every girl knows that trying to find the perfect bathing suit is THE WORST. Whether the carrier doesn't have your size or if the bottoms make your booty look like a saggy diaper, it is just awful.

1. Thinking you will look like a goddess in the first suit you pick out and realizing how wrong you were.

how you think you look:

2. Thinking about how gross it is that someone else has probably tried on this EXACT swimsuit.

Always wear your underwear while trying things on!

3. Trying to tie the suit properly, but knowing this task is nearly impossible as a one-person job.

Not even a human pretzel person could do this alone.

4. Thinking you matched the top and bottom, but the top is teal and the bottom is aqua.

The horror.

5. Trying to figure out all the straps like...

It's like Atlanta spaghetti junction.

6. Thinking "My muffin top is a whole muffin now."

The best part of a muffin is all of it.

7. Finding it disgusting when your chest looks like two deflated balloons in a particularly cute top.

Accurate depiction:

8. Being confused as to why you have to pay for two items when it is ONE BATHING SUIT.


9. Grabbing a one-piece just in case, but realizing you look like a busted can of biscuits in it.

Disappointment. Anger. Sadness. Wishing you hadn't eaten late night pizza all those nights before, but knowing you're going to do it again.

10. Contemplating ordering online.

But how will I know if it fits right? Plus, shipping is a no for me.

11. Being completely washed out by an extremely cute color.

Curse my skin tone. Curse it, I say!

12. "Why did I even come today? My old bathing suits are perfectly fine... except they're not new."

I just wanted something nice and new and I'm feeling so attacked right now.

13. Just buying something else not related to swimwear while accepting defeat.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.
