Otherwise I wouldn't be doing my job. So help a sista out by entering this giveaway RIGHT HERE for the chance to win a 1-year supply of Roxy swim gear!*

You have from now until Friday, July 26th to enter and if you win you'll be the proud owner of 24 Roxy swim pieces. I'm not gonna lie, I'm already jealous. I think you should hook me up with at least 1 piece if you win. Just sayin'.

Become A Bikini-onaire - Enter the Roxy Giveaway HERE!

And don't stop girl, you best not. Because I've got more!


I have a $100 gift card to give away to 1 lucky MizzFIT reader.

This is a separate giveaway from the one above. To win it, here's what you've gotta do:

1. Leave your BEST BIKINI STORY in the comments section below

2. Follow me on Twitter (I'm @MizzFIT_Bianca)

I don't care if it's embarrassing, gross or heartwarming. Just share something remarkably good that's a true story and I'll pick my favorite to win. Be genuine because I have B.S. spotting super powers. The winner will be chosen on July 20th. Good luck!

So this is ME in my new Roxy bikini of choice. Warning: Selfie!

It's called the Sweet Terrain Bikini and I love it! Now, no one will lose me at the beach because I'll be glowing pink from afar! FYI, it comes in white too.

I really love the bustier-style bikini top because it's padded and sculpted to fool everyone into thinking I have perfect boobies. I like that it makes my waist look smaller by giving the illusion that I'm bigger on top. The bikini bottom is boy-cut and wave-proof. And just in case you didn't already know, the crochet look is totally IN.

Here's the sweepstakes contest link one more time:

Okay so a bikini story hmm.. How about an awful tan line story caused by a funky style bikini..right before PROM!! OKay so My dad was in the navy and we got stationed on the beautiful island of guam my senior year of high school. So obviously I wanted to look fabulous at the beach and bought this Adorable one shouldered baby blue gem of a bikini!! I loved it.. Well I fell asleep sun bathing about a week before the prom. And I had picked a beautiful strapless dress. Oh it was awful I was so cherry red!! and had this funky bright white strip on one shoulder lol... Thank god for self tanners. It would have been a total disaster other wise!

You look HOT!!!! And so confident!!
My best bikini story was actually from this year when I got married in Key West. When I was young I never cared what I looked like in a swim suit I just wore them. As the years went on my confidence level dwindled. I got to the point were I just didn't go swimming. I've never been over weight I just lacked the confidence to be happy with my body. Well then I had a baby and what little confidence I had left vanished. I had been working my ass of literally for my wedding and knew I was going to have to wear a swim suit. So I did the dreaded shopping and found two suits that I liked. When I put them on during my honeymoon I didn't hide under a towel or just stay at my beach chair. I went to the sand and played in the water with my son without caring what anyone else thought but most of all not consistently worrying about what I thought about myself. Its always been my own criticism that has killed my confidence but this year something just changed. Its such a good feeling to be happy with your body after all its the only one I have :)

MizzFIT June 23rd, 2013 7:46AM

Hey girl,

That happened to me once except on my leg and I literally looked like I had been "touched" by Freddy Kruger. It really hurt too. Yes, I say "thank god for self tanners" pretty much every day of my life!

You're entered for the giveaway now!


MizzFIT June 23rd, 2013 7:48AM

OMG Holly!

Love this story because it's adorably funny but feel so bad for you (in that moment of you life). Thanks for sharing because I think we've all been some form of embarrassment with a guy that was cute or that we were crushing on. You're entered for the giveaway! Thanks for telling that story!


MizzFIT June 23rd, 2013 7:50AM

Hi Brittany,

So empowering! I want every woman in the world to feel that way. And so cool that you found the inner strength to cultivate the outer strength. You know I love you!

You're entered for the giveaway!


MizzFIT June 23rd, 2013 7:53AM

Hi Megan!

I was waiting for the period + swimsuit mortification story! So glad I could count on your to tell yours! yup, it sucked and now it's behind you. Time to laugh at our youth that way and celebrate bikinis that will make us feel more empowered than ever. You're entered and that's definitely a contender! Good luck!


Amanda June 25th, 2013 3:58AM

Bikini story?!?! As a surfer, i have way too many!!
Well.. a 12 year old me was boogie boarding in the shore break at the beach in East Hampton. A ginormous wave was coming my way and me, being the crazy dare devil i am, was immeadiately stoked and paddled as hard as i could for it. I caught the wave and almost made the drop... i ended up with a mouthful of sand and a suprise. My bikini bottoms were missing. completely gone... I instantly freaked out imagining my walk of shame up the beach to my parents and in front of all of my cool 12 year old surfer friends. just as i was about to brave it and run up the beach showing off a butt that had never seen the sun before.. i spotted a neon blob drifting away in front of me.. i frantically swam after it, put my pants back on and casually strolled out of the water like nothing happened and never mentioned why i was almost in tears in the water that day.

And thank you so much for speaking to us at HOBY Nymetro on Friday! I really learned a lot and appreciated it so much! It was a great experience!

MizzFIT June 26th, 2013 3:28PM

Hi Amanda,

This is hysterical and such a great story! Most of all, I love how you were rocking neon back then. It's like you knew it would recycle into the fashion world again! You're now entered into the giveaway! And it was phenomenal meeting you at HOBY! Let's please stay in touch!

Hi Jen!

Why does our swimwear always fall off??? This slide story is fantastic. I take it you avoid bandeau tops now like the plague! Got you entered for the gift card giveaway. Thanks for sharing!


Melisa June 26th, 2013 3:40PM

My bikini story isn't so much a story but how I'm so happy to be able to wear bikinis again! Two years ago I was in perfect bikini shape, running every day (and completing my first half marathon!). Then I took 10 months off running to have a baby. That was followed by a terrible flare of arthritis, which I've been struggling with my entire life (imagine how proud I was to complete 2 half marathons!). I couldn't even fit into my old jeans, let alone look good in a bikini.
Despite the arthritis pain I started running and working out again to get back into shape. MizzFit is always such an inspiration. 8 months later I was finally comfortable wearing a bikini again on a Mexico vacation. Now, a few months later, I had my knee replaced and I'm totally ready for an active bikini summer!

MizzFIT June 26th, 2013 4:08PM

Hi Melisa,

I'm beyond shocked and impressed by all the hurdles you've soared over to reach your fitness goals. Especially a knee replacement! You deserve a year's worth of bikinis for sure! Did you enter the Roxy sweepstakes giveaway too? Because you're certainly entered for the gift card giveaway here! But I wanna make sure you enter the other giveaway too because I think you are a perfect candidate for that! Thanks for sharing your moving story.


Eliza June 27th, 2013 8:58PM

MizzFIT you are lookin FIT AND FLY in those pics! Okay, a bikini story:

Last year I studied abroad in South Africa. Everything from the ocean, beach, mountains, farms, vineyards, wines, and food was unreal. I winded and dined for 6 whole months and knew to balance this I had to exercise. Therefore, I began teaching my Kick It With Eliza cardio kickboxing classes at the University of Cape Town (where I was attending). I was having a ball and thought everything was under control until about month 5. As I was getting ready for one of the last fun nights out in the city I grabbed my skin tight Guess skirt. Right foot in, left foot in, up the legs it went and wouldn't go any further. My newly found big ass could not get into my favorite skirt! I looked in the mirror and said aloud, WTF! Oy, I cried and cried after that. Knowing that I am the face of my fitness brand and now gaining weight was a knife to the heart. How could I motivate people in classes/online if I could not control my physique? Well, when I returned to the states I would really hard to get back to my normal size. I hadn't gained an insane amount, but enough to go through what many people in my classes feel. It was a blessing in disguise to know how some participants feel, wanting to slim down and do it right. By August I felt a lot better and could fit into that skirt. Now, instead of holding South Africa close to my ass, I hold it to the next big thing, my heart!

Eliza June 27th, 2013 9:02PM

Ah! Forgot to follow this up with:

June and July were really hard months to be in my bikini. I was mortified and refused to get into one until I was ready. It was a real mind game for me because my family thought I was crazy, but I kept my goals in mind. Like I said, by August, I was able to fit into the skirt and made my first bikini appearance at my favorite beach! This summer I have been confident in my bikini's, but haven't forgotten what it feels like to be insecure about how you feel when you don't think you look good.

MizzFIT June 27th, 2013 11:17PM

Hi Eliza!
I think everyone and their mother can relate to your story. And sometimes even when you're on top of your game (or when you think you are), weight gain still happens! It's a biatch! I am proud of you for staying focused on your fitness goals and not letting it get to you too much. As women, we go through all kinds of fluctuations in our life. From hormones to weight gain to who know's what else is in store for us as we age. Love that you remembered that the best way to stay motivated is to LEAD as a role model. Thank you so much for sharing your bikini story and good luck in this giveaway!


Melisa June 28th, 2013 5:55AM

Yes, I did enter the Roxy sweepstakes. I just filled out the form with my name, email, and address and submitted, I hope I didn't miss anything! Thank you so much for the support!! This is a great thing you're doing.

MizzFIT June 28th, 2013 6:07AM

Hi Melisa,

Awww, you are too sweet. So glad you're in for both the contests! And thank you for all your amazing support and kind words.

Patti June 28th, 2013 9:14PM

This story is not a super good story, but it is a true story. It's also a story that I have never shared with anyone before. I was too embarrassed. But, for $100 GC, I can make an exception. When I was in high school, my father was super overprotective. He would not allow me to wear a two piece swimsuit. You can imagine how difficult this was for a high school student when everyone else wore them. So, I had a friend that would let me borrow her older two piece suit. I would change into that suit at the pool and then change back before going home. Well, one day she told me that I could buy the suit for a small amount. I remember it being $1.00 but not really sure if that's the amount. The girl lived down my street. I was to go and purchase the suit at her house. When I got there she told me that I couldn't buy the suit because her cousin wanted it. Her parents were right there and I knew then that she had told her parents what was really going on. That's just what they said to stop this criminal act from taking place! They looked at me with the most disgusted look on their faces. I felt like the worst, most terrible person. Knowing these adults knew that I had been going behind my Dad's back, horrified me. I hated for people to think badly of me. They never told my parents the truth, but I was always embarrassed when I saw them from then on. That's my story!

Karla June 29th, 2013 7:01AM

This is my bikini story, a bit embarrassing hehe
MY high school friends and I decided to go on a trip to the beach to celebrate our 3rd year in college. Unfortunately on the day of the trip while on our way there, I stopped at the local gas station's restroom and found out my period had arrived. So I bought a package of sanitary napkins since tampons were not available in the nearby convenience store. I feeling a bit bummed out since I wasn't going to be able to go in the water, but at least I was going to get a tan.
When we arrived I tanned for a while, but it was hard for me to resist the water, so I went in...with my sanitary pad in my bikini bottom. All the rolling in the waves and swimming made me unaware I had lost my pad, until one of my friends was freaking out because there was a bloody sanitary napkin stuck in her hair! I was so mortified, I couldn't look her in the eye. I dragged my ass back after apologizing profusely to her, showered, put on a new sanitary pad, and tanned my ass off for the rest of the trip. So that's it, my story.

MizzFIT June 29th, 2013 8:27AM

Hi Patti,

That's the cheapest bikini on earth! I'm sure you could have bribed the cousin to keep it by throwing a few more bucks into the pot. But I understand your story. I love how humble and really innocent you were because the reality is that you weren't really doing anything bad. Your dad just loved you and wanted to protect you but a girl's gotta do girl things. It's part of growing up! This story is so pure and cute. Thanks for sharing it and best of luck in this giveaway contest!


MizzFIT June 29th, 2013 8:30AM

Hiya Karla!

Period stories are the BEST 10-20 years after-the-fact, right??? I can't help but laugh that the napkin was caught in your friend's hair. I really hope she forgave you and shampoo'd twice to get EXTRA clean, haha! Thank you for sharing your embarrassing story. I'm going to have to share one of my own because these are so good, I'm tempted to reveal one myself. Good luck in the giveaway!


Victoria Yang June 29th, 2013 9:02PM

For the longest time I was terrified to put any swim suit on and had this nautica one-piece I sported all through high school and the first two years of college (I needed some serious help in the fashion department). I was slightly overweight (according to the doctor) and the suit was blue and white horizontally striped (really needed help...). It wasn't until I started going to the gym with friends and eating food that wasn't created in a dorm when I started to get healthier and put on my first bikini. I was still self conscious but had gone through so much change in my body that I didn't care and was proud of my progress. Unfortunately that progress took a nose dive after college when I lost my mom. I started not caring about myself as much and ended up 15 pounds overweight. Might not seem like a lot but I had hit a point where it felt like I couldn't do anything about it. That changed when I turned 30 and decided I wanted to start doing things I kept saying I wanted to do while my body could still heal relatively quickly. :) So I started stand up paddling, which led to surfing which has now become not just a hobby but a way of life for me. Naturally this lead to eating healthier, building muscle, losing weight and becoming ME again. This also led to a love for bikini's! After all they are a must for the beach, SUP and surf. Doesn't matter if I need to pull a wet suit over it for colder California waters, I still love how a bikini can make me feel and the anticipation of jumping on my board and paddling out. :)

MizzFIT July 2nd, 2013 1:16AM


OMG, how inspiring! Fluctuations happen to all women, at least the women that aren't visiting from an alien planet. And it's so frustrating because no one likes the feeling of thinking "oh wait, I once used to look better than I do now". It can be really depressing and I'm totally psyched about how you motivated to overcome that and fight back with healthy eating AND SUP & SURF!!!

I F-ing love SUP! It's one of my favorite things in the world to do. Except while you're doing it on Pacific Coast waters, I'm doing it on the gross Hudson River, lol! But I still have fun! Thanks for entering this giveaway and telling your fantastic story!


Penny July 2nd, 2013 10:43PM

My story is about learning to love your body.

When I was in high school I got invited by a friend to go with her to her and her parents to Nova Scotia I had a great time and took tons of pics. When I got home and looked at the devloped pictures I saw one of myself in a one piece bathing suit and was mortified.

I decided that for my next trip to the beach I would try to bakini and when I looked in the mirror and pictures that followed I LOVED how I looked which hasn't happened many times in my life.

Lesson of the story: don't settle find the right thing that YOU feel comfertable in!

MizzFIT July 2nd, 2013 10:49PM

Hi Pen,

LOVE! I feel like we're always learning. Because our bodies and self images are constantly changing...whether we like it or not! Thank you! Sending lots of cartoon hearts your way!
