Summer is here, and with it comes the excitement of beach trips, pool parties, and soaking up the sun. However, the idea of getting into a bikini can sometimes bring feelings of self-doubt and body insecurities (we feel it too!). But fear not! It's time to shift the focus from achieving the so-called "perfect body" to embracing and loving the body you're in.
Here are five tips to help you embrace your "bikini body" and feel confident this summer
1. Knowing you already have the perfect bikini body!
Every body is perfect for the beach and deserves to be out there in a bikini! Remember, your body is unique and beautiful in its own way. Focus on the things you love about yourself and appreciate all that your body allows you to do. Society would try to tell us that we need this ‘perfect’ tight and toned body to be worthy of showing to the world but that’s just not true. You already have the perfect bikini body!
2. Choose a Style that Makes You Feel Comfortable:
Finding the right bikini style can make a world of difference in how you feel! Explore different cuts, patterns, and designs to find a style that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Whether it's a high-waisted bikini like the Ellie and Wren or a classic one piece like the Eva, we think we’ve got you covered!
3. Shift Your Mindset:
Instead of fixating on our perceived flaws, let’s shift out mindset to focus on the things we love about our body. Remind yourself of all the amazing things your body can do and the experiences it allows you to have. Embrace the strength, resilience, and beauty that resides within you. Confidence is a state of mind, and once you start appreciating your body for all its uniqueness, that confidence will shine through.
4. Practice Self-Care:
Prioritise self-care to nurture your body and mind. Engage in activities that make you feel good - laughter looks so good on you!! Take care of your skin by staying hydrated and using sunscreen to protect it from the sun's rays. When you prioritise self-care, you'll feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin.
5. Surround Yourself with Positivity:
Surrounding yourself with positive people is essential for life but so important to help us embrace our bodies. Follow body-positive influencers and communities that celebrate diverse bodies and promote self-love. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family who uplift and empower you. Remember, you are not alone in your journey, and there are countless individuals out there who embrace and love their bodies, just as they are!
And remember you can always fit with us!
Embracing your "bikini body" is about shifting your mindset, practicing self-love, and choosing to focus on the things you love, rather than the things you don’t feel 100% about. Your body is beautiful, unique, and worthy of love and acceptance. So go ahead and embrace your bikini body, because you deserve to enjoy every moment of summer with confidence and joy!
