Does This Bathing Suit Make Me Look Fat?

This funny little image is from Crissy Armstrong - Beach Baby Jayme. I decided to go simple with this one, mostly because I wanted to use my new embossing folder and it didn't seem to need much more. 

Beach Baby Jayme just speaks to my awareness that not all bathing suits look good on my body.  Of course, this whole topic will get me on my soap box about how we women (in general) spend too much time worrying about how we look and not enough time appreciating what we have been given to work with.  I'll step down now. lol!

I also tried photographing this one outside in the bright sunlight and I think it turned out better than an inside shot.
