With Memorial Day weekend coming up, the official start of bathing suit season arrives—along with loads of anxiety, at least for me and most women I know.

So when one of our Marie Claire staffers showed me this to promote National Swimsuit Confidence Week, encouraging women to get their confidence back and hit the pool. It's all about women embracing their bodies, no matter what size or shape.

I know I for one could use a little boost in the mojo department when it comes to swimwear. In fact, is there anyone outside of Gisele Bundchen who doesn't? And there are lots of ways to get involved, like tweeting to enter to win prizes and posting pictures of yourself looking proud and gorgeous in your swimsuit on your own personal blog. See all the details here and join the movement!
