Caitlyn Jenner Discusses “Freeing” Swimsuit Experience

Caitlyn is currently documenting her gender transition through the series ‘I Am Cait’, and in the latest episode she decided to push her comfort zone and try out a swimsuit for the first time. She said to the cameras that the experiencing was liberating:

”Ok, I did it. I got the bathing suit on. It was nerve-racking, but it felt very freeing. And I did see my reflection in the glass door – looked pretty good.”

Previously she admitted that everything has to be done little by little and it all takes time to feel comfortable. She even ruled out the idea of a swimsuit because she felt it was happening too quickly:

‘This process of coming out doesn’t happen overnight. There are so many hurdles to overcome. Every day it seems like, ‘What about a bathing suit?’ See, I can’t even say it. It’s hard for it just to come out saying ‘a bathing suit.’ But that’s where I got to get and it’s going to take time.”

She said she wasn’t ready to see her body in a swimsuit and it would take her longer to be ready to do that:

”I don’t think I’m ready for that. You have to realise these girls transitioned years and years and years ago. I just don’t know if I’m ready to expose myself like that. Maybe down the line I’ll feel more comfortable with myself but right now I just can’t see myself doing.”

..and now she’s done it!
