A real dare to wear movement is going on, the bikini trend for plus size women. With slight hesitation I show you my bikini outfit.
In the past I would wear bikini’s, no problem. Often I would spend my days on a lonely beach somewhere in Asia, where I would feel comfortable to do so. On busier beaches I don’t feel completely comfortable and I prefer to wear a tankini. Not because I don’t like my body, but because at the beach everybody looks at everybody.
When you’re a plus size like me, people will look for sure. Why? Perhaps they are surprised to see someone in my size to feel comfortable at the beach? I have heard stories why plus sized women won’t go to the beach anymore, because people where calling them names! Luckily I have never experienced such a thing, perhaps it’s my kind expression that makes them not dare to, lol!
Walking around almost naked is not my favorite thing to do. Also the beach is not my favorite place to go -love it, but I have a thing with sand- so when you add these things up I must be prepared for everything in order to feel safe. How do I do this? Read my summer tricks, one of these is I bring a sarong everywhere I go.
Once settled, towels down, bag in the shade I can lay down and relax. I normally wear a tankini but whenever possible, I also buy the top part. This way I can vary. Last week I spend my days at the small calas in Mallorca, tiny beaches with only a few people. Okay, I went for it. Even better, I made photos.
I hope to encourage other women to be proud of the bodies they’re in and to flaunt those bikinis on the beach
