What happens when a curvy girl poses like a swimsuit model? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. The world does not shatter from large thighs squeezing out of tight suits. People don’t point, scream and run away when they see a women over size 6 in a swimsuit. Curves don’t blind people’s eye balls. And I promise, nobody is going home from the beach telling their friends “Man, today would have been perfect if that one plus-size girl wasn’t there”.
With Spring Break around the corner, a trending topic these days is getting “swimsuit ready” and I can’t tell you how much I hate that term. When women say things like ” Oh man, I have to get bikini ready for Cabo”, all I hear is “I feel insecure about my body and I’m worried that people will think I’m fat when we’re in Cabo”. And that’s not ok. 50+ years ago, curves used to be consider beautiful, then main stream media started featuring skinnier skinnier women. Most people my age grew up seeing only beautiful size 2 Amazonian women on TV and in magazines, which makes our bodies feel wildly out of place and abnormal when in reality, curves are very, very normal. (And so are no curves – everyone’s body is normal because everyone is different.)
This is an ode to all your curvy ladies who are worried that you’ll feel out of place/shammed/uncomfortable at the beach this spring and summer. There’s no excuse to miss out on life. The second you let yourself give no sh*ts about how you look in your swimsuit, that’s the second you’ll fully love yourself.
