If you do a search in google of "bikini body" the results are a poor representation of what a bikini body is. What you find are beautiful tall women, without a thigh gap, perfectly toned abs & that beach wave hair I can never figure out how to get.
But what you don't see is everybody else. There are so many beautiful women just as I described above that should certainly be represented, but why don't the women who look like me show up in the top 20 pictures of the search?
I'm without a doubt far from the first person to recognize that there is quite a large gap in what we are constantly defining as beautiful or the norm of what a bikini body is.
I have never been one of those thin ladies. I have had curves since I could remember. My thighs are best friends & that's why they always touch. I have had stretch marks since I hit puberty too many years ago and guess what? My tummy has this really cute jiggle to it.
But you know what else? I still rock a bikini.
I don't know if it's because I was raised by a strong woman or if I always made sure that my personal confidence always stayed with me, but I grew up to embrace what I was given.
I was given my curves & my mini stature (I'm not even 5 feet tall) because that's what the world dealt me. But aside from that, I was given a lot more. I was given creativity, sarcasm & a usually level head. I was given drive, kindness & a lot of love inside this body.
There are plenty of days where I look at myself and think "meh" but I just have to remember that more often than not, the next day that I look at my self, I'm usually thinking; "get it girl".
But what I want to remind you is that no matter how you look- whether your thighs touch or not- embrace it, rock it & show it off! When you feel confident in yourself, you radiate. Stop caring about the negativity & surround yourself with the positive reminders of your beautiful body, beautiful personality & beautiful mind. Be you & go out there and let the world know you're here to stay!
And always, always, always remember, to get a bikini body; simply put on your bikini.
