This could be a VERY short post. A super short one, but well, you know me. Short version? I refuse to be AFRAID to wear a bikini; being afraid is for spiders or clowns or being murdered in your sleep, not someone seeing your stomach.
It’s clothing, folks; it’s nothing to be afraid of. And if you’re anything like me, then a bikini might work out better for you. Firstly, interchangeable sizes and no length issues. After that, it’s the same as the tankini (which I’ll talk about later this week) but with a little less material and a little extra oomph.
Since Gabi from Gabifresh launched her first “fatkini” in the market 3 (ish?) years ago plus size women everywhere have been embracing their bellies. For years, women who hadn’t worn swimsuits were parading in front of their mirrors, by the pool and on the beach in their bikinis. And that vibe, it spread.
No longer the domain of the ab exceptional amongst us, the bikini is cool. Everyone is doing it. Whether your style is sporty and functional or stringy and sexy, there’s a bikini in the marketplace somewhere FOR YOU. It’s fun. Because that’s the point, it’ll soon be summer, and I want to see you happy wearing whatever the heck makes you happy.
Maybe a bikini won’t be your thing. But if it is, and you’ve been afraid to wear it, then I one hundred per cent am behind you doing what you want. Wearing what you want. I always will be. A great way to ditch the fear of wearing a bikini is to build up to wearing it in public. Practice at home by wearing it around your house. Get used to the wind on your belly, then build up to beach days with family and friends.
But let me assure you of one thing, you have every right to wear that bikini. Every right! There are zero reasons to be afraid to wear a bikini. And bonus, as far as I know, I googled it, so I’m pretty sure a bikini hasn’t killed anyone yet. Oh man, I hope you’re not the first. Haha.
