I truly believe that we should not have to settle for a swimsuit just because we are plus size women but this being said not everything is for everybody. For my trip to Mexico, I really wanted to have a two pieces suit, not the tankini like I typically wear but I a real bikini (because I’ve been killing it at the gym) but it so hard to find one for my body type. I have a large back and bikini tops always tend to have small bra straps that create major back bulges which is a big NO NO for me. But my prayers had finally been answered with this bikini I had found at the store AquaSport in Montreal. They carry plus size collections and when I spoke to the manager she told me that they were always making sure that their plus sized pieces were always current and modern. For the first time, I found a bikini that was hugging me in the right places. I had zero back bulges wearing this swimsuit therefore I looked great from any angle…yay! I’m a true believer that EVERYBODY should dress according to your body type and we should not be carried away with things we wish we could wear because that’s simply nonsense. At the end of the day, if I don’t look FLY AND FIERCE in something then it’s a no go!
I remember the post “Every body is a bikini body” by the blogger Gabi where she was claiming that everybody can wear a bikini and that we didn’t need to start working out just to fit in one….NOT!! Please girls don’t believe the hype, even the greatest top models in the world have personal trainers because the reality is that everybody may be a bikini body but NOT EVERYONE WILL LOOK GREAT IN IT. As big girls we need to workout to keep our big butts and big thighs firm just like everybody else and let’s not forget that it’s also a plus for our health. Now, if you feel like wearing a bikini just because you want to prove that you can to society and look like a hot mess that’s your prerogative but on my blog we need to keep it REAL!
And I almost forgot Happy Easter!
