The Bikini

The Bikini - a two piece swimming costume likely divide opinion amongst many.

Whether you’re off to Cornwall or Corfu, Devon or Dubai, Wales or Walt Disney you’re guaranteed to see plenty around this Summer time.

The question is however, will you be wearing one yourself?

If your suitcase is packed with a variety of colourful bikinis and you’re ready to confidently strut around the beach without a second thought then I congratulate you wholeheartedly. You go get ‘em sista!

I have total admiration for you and applaud you indefinitely, that sassy girl emoji is most definitely yours.

This column however? You may not find much use in it sadly.

This month I want to talk about the bikini with all of you who want to wear one, but find it a lot more difficult to do so. Maybe you wear one reluctantly under a big cover up or maybe you enforce a no exceptions ban.

Whatever your reason for that bikini phobia, I ask you simply to just throw it out the window.
Seriously. So what if you’ve got chunky thighs and your belly is flabby and you think you’ve got cankles. I don’t care, you can still look great in a two piece.

Maybe you’ve got stretch marks, scars or a medical condition that leaves you feeling ugly – that doesn’t matter, you can still look like a total goddess!

You are a beautiful human being that achieves so much on an every day basis and the only thing that holds you back is yourself.

I really don’t care how cheesy that sounds to you cause it’s true. I’ve seen plenty of articles over the years on how to get bikini body ready but my favourite went a little something like this…
 
How to get bikini body ready:
1.    Put a Bikini on
2.    Done

I want to encourage you this summer to wear a Bikini if you want to, regardless of your shape or size.
If you can’t just face that prospect, then I at least request that you push yourself out of your comfort zone a little this summer.

However small a step something may seem, it can make a real difference. You’ll see women of all varieties strutting their stuff like a boss this summer and you’ll just wish you had the confidence to do that.

I know it’s not that simple and it can take years to break down them body confidence barriers but it all starts with a simple step.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you're too small, too big, or too ‘whatever’ to wear that bikini.
Put it on and wear it like a pro, you are amazing and I know you can do it!
