Ok, so who made the rules that only skinny girls can look fabulous?
No I am not hating on the girls who have less fat on their legs than I do on my little finger, but honestly why do we let weight rule our lives?
Recently Gabbi Gregg (writer for xojane.com) posted the following picture on the internet declaring that big girls can wear bikinis too!
Honestly, she looks amazing!
Confidence is the main reason!
I found this article which goes into much more detail but I just wanted to see what you thought of it and share my opinion.
Now I'm not going to say 'they all look hideous and should wear a tent to the beach' but also wont say 'they all look amazing'
These women all look good because they are confident (but some could have chosen more flattering bikini's - but hey they still have more confidence than I do!).
Personally I wear a one-piece or a tank-ini to the beach or pool because I don't like the look of my stomach - I have a huge scar across my stomach (as well as on my back) and stretch marks too. I know that this wouldn't affect some people but I would rather keep it covered as I never show my belly in public so I prefer not to tan there. Also there's the fact that the skin around my scars is fragile and sensitive so the sun would do them no good what so ever.
However I do not feel the need to wrap my self in a sarong or wear a cover-up over my swimsuit.
This is me on my holidays last year in a swimsuit.
Its one of my favourite pictures of myself. Yes it's quite a flattering angle but I walked around like this for 70% of the holiday feeling confident and real life isn't always as flattering as a photo.
The point I am trying to make is I feel confident when I look fabulous!
Just because I'm a size 12, which is not fat but not skinny at the same time either, does not mean that I can't look good!
Yeah some days I feel disgusting and over weight, but others I feel amazing. Like today, when I dress well (OOTD coming soon!) I instantly have more confidence.
Bikini's turn heads on a beach weather you're big or small.
and hey, you're on holiday!
I'm really interested to hear how people feel about this. Even if you think your opinion might be a bit controversial please share it!
