Today, I swam in the ocean and wore a bikini for the first time in 8 years. Usually I have to swim with a t-shirt or a wet suit covering me. I have severe scoliosis and my body deformity has caused me to hide my body with baggy clothes and sweaters. Building this confidence has been tough, but I’m so proud of myself. I've never felt so free. MMT

Congratulations! I had scoliosis too, until I had surgery a couple of years ago, and I know it takes a lot of confidence to show your back in public :) x

Awesome! I know exactly how you felt... having both scoliosis and kyphosis. Thank you for your inspiration :). Definitely going shirtless next time I go swimming!

I know this post was from about a year ago but I just want to say Congradulaitons and let oyou know that I'm Happy for you. :)
