Bikinis are not for everyone; I respect that. We are all on different journeys to loving, accepting, & finding peace with our bodies.
For me, I love the way swimwear makes me feel - sassy, feminine, happy, and free. And I believe everyone deserves to feel that glorious.
I have always loved fashion and the creativity it allows me to explore. Ever since I was a little girl I was drawn to bold choices: textured fabrics, loud patterns, bright accessories, and sparkling threads.
And then some where along the line the world tried to teach me what to wear, how to wear it, and what to absolutely avoid wearing at all costs. Stripes, bikinis, short dresses, tight tops, lingerie, bright colors, sexy silhouettes ... these were amoung the things apparently off limits to my body.
The language used in marketing was constantly telling me to virtually disappear - erase fine lines, smooth big curves, vanish unwanted hair, remove all blemishes, and lose every pound possible.
This never sat well with me. And as much as society wanted me to obey by the rules, I just couldn't do it.
I decided to take my power back and do what I wanted. To make my own decisions about what beauty looked like to me, and the ways in which I wanted to dress, nurioush, and live in my body. Some people respect this, some are empowered by it, and some are disgusted by it.
But I make the choice everyday to be bold because of how it makes ME feel, not anyone else. I continue to wear what I want and make no apologies for the space my body takes up.
This year, I implore you to do the same. Maybe its not a bikini ... but there is something that makes you feel glorious, something that the world told you to hide away, something gnawing at the back of your mind that's refuses to stop.
Its time to make the bold choice and let the world see your true shine. ✌💙 #fatgirllife #fatbabe #effyourbeautystandards #honormycurves #radicalbodylove #bigarmnoharm #bigandblunt #youdoyou #curvesreign #curvy #plussize #psbloggers #sizefat #bikini #fatkini #sassy #ocean #beach #vacation #vacay #mexico #tropical #blonde #sunglasses #sparkle #metallic #bling #izzasisters4lyfe #boldncurvy #ootd
