Bikini Confident

Coming back from my recent holiday there was one thing on my mind on the run up to the vacay… with all the talk recently  of a perfect bikini body I think I felt the pressure more than ever to be ‘beach ready’.
These silly campaigns, magazines and Victoria Secret models got the better of me. We all have our insecurities and what I discovered is that there is no such thing as “perfect”. Us ladies and men have to get together and realise that. I’m pretty sure there is always something someone would like to change about themselves me being one of them. The pressure surrounding us currently is not like I have ever noticed before and the body shaming I see on social media sights can sometimes be so disheartening. 

What I have come to discover is confidence is everything. It’s all you need. If you feel comfortable and good in that bikini - girl you wear it! Don’t ever let anyone knock you down from feeling amazing. There is so set size, body shape or anything to wear a bikini all you have to do is put it on. As I lay on the beach admiring the nice sets people were wearing not once did I find myself thinking “she shouldn’t be wearing that”. I saw all different types of women rocking them and they owned it. I thought to myself why was I even worried in the first place as I hoped people were thinking the same about me. 

There were points when I felt like staying in my cover up all day long trying to mask my deformed rib, operation scars and stretch marks on my bum. Once I got over the fact that people really didn't care too much either did I (not that you should ever care what people think). I stood proudly next to my beautiful friends by the pool and beach and I accepted that this is what I’ve got and I’m not settling for this but working every inch of it. That’s right if I have too I will sprinkle a bit of sass on everyone and have us all feeling fabulous in no time. Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle, you are beautiful.
