Summer is practically in our midst—the weather is heating up, vacations are being planned and we can’t help but feel like every day should be spent by the pool, ice cold cocktail in hand. That being said, we will soon have to endure the fresh hell that is shopping for a swimsuit. Any and every female out there knows how infuriating this seemingly simple task can be.
Trying to find swimwear that flatters your body while covering up enough skin is a nightmare, not to mention the latest styles have so many awkwardly placed cutouts and bizarre designs that are uncomplimentary on even the most toned physiques. Two moms decided to make a hilariously relatable video about the trials and tribulations that come with being a woman during swimsuit season and the internet is loving it.
These two hilarious moms made a video about the struggle of being a woman during swimsuit season and we can totally relate.
Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley AKA Imomsohard have been writing comedy together for 40+ years and if there’s one thing they’re experts on, it’s the rollercoaster of insanity that is motherhood. They cope with the craziness of children, husbands, and everyday life through their comedy and their latest video focuses on the struggle all women face when picking out an “appropriate” swimsuit for the summer.
Hensley and Smedley poke fun at the impractical design of many of today’s hot styles, particularly when trying to enjoy swim time with the kiddos, and we can’t help but agree.
The video’s caption reads: “When I’m at the beach, I’m there to lifeguard, build sandcastles, supply treats, re-stand the umbrella every dang time it blows over, spray sunscreen, drink a beer, look for seashells, warm-up wet kiddos, force people to eat sandwiches and drink juice, blow up water-wings, and keep my son from publicly urinating. Basically, I’ve got a really fun job to do and I don’t have time to let a piece of lycra throw me off my game.”
Since the video was posted on Facebook, it has been viewed over 6 million times and people are loving it.
Hensley and Smedley also reminded their fans to ignore society’s pressures and wear whatever makes them feel good.
“Nobody thinks that they look perfect ever,” Smedley said. “Let’s just all go to the beach.”
Hensley added that she plans to pass this body positive mentality on to her little girl.
“I want my daughter to love her life and to love herself and she’s not going to do it because I tell her to do it,” she said. “She’s going to do it because I teach her to do it.”
