It’s that time of the year again… that time when everyone you know is trying to lose weight and get fit all because swimsuit is just around the corner. Here what I have to say about that: you don’t need a six-pack to have a bikini body. F&*K a “bikini body” and F&%K a “thigh gap”. I hate the message that only certain bodies are allowed to wear certain swimwear looks. If you want to wear a bikini wear that bikini. If a one piece is more your style, do you boo boo. I have cellulite on the back on my thighs and stretch marks on my bum and back of my arms. Do you think I will let them stop me from doing my thing?.... NOPE. I only started wearing a bikini 3 years ago and the only reason I took so long was because of my insecurities. So what I’ve learned is, find a swimsuit style that makes you feel good. I personally go for a high waist bikini bottom with a high thigh cut. And for tops, I love a something that has a sporty vibe.

  1. Nice blog post. It would have been awesome to see more stuff mixed and matched, this help people to actually have a good taste for choosing their beach / swimming attire

  2. You’ve just given me the confidence to rock my bikinis! Ps. I saw you at Parklands sometime back and I said hi, you were so sweet and approachable! Most of all…you skin glows! Xoxo

  3. We are all beautifully flawed. Our imperfections help tell our story. Loving your spirit on self love.
    #Confidence will make you happier than any diet ever will.

  4. Woow! I love how bold, beautiful and confident you are. Some things as women we cant avoid. All we need to do is love ourselves just the way we are and if anyone has problem with it they can go choke….*Hides face*!
    We shouldn’t be in the business of putting each other down.
    F….. A thick gap!!!! LOL!

    • You are 100% right. We all need to learn how to love ourselves and build each other up. not tear each other down.
