This body positive meme has been doing the rounds on social media recently, and it’s great to see that some people, at least, are taking a stand against this incessant need to get ‘beach ready’.
As the temperature begins to rise, and the summer months draw ever closer, we start seeing slogans in newspapers and magazines such as ‘The Secret to a Perfect Bikini Body’, ’30 Day Bikini Body Challenge’ and ’20 Hottest Celebrities Bikini Bodies’. All of these articles tell us our bodies are not worthy of being shown off in a two piece and, before we dare inflict it on the world, we must starve ourselves, spend every waking hour in the gym and fry our skin in a tanning booth.
But it’s time us women said no to this media bombardment and started to love our bodies as they are. We are women and we are beautiful, and therefore we all have bikini bodies. So, go on ladies, what are you waiting for, pick which gorgeous Fox and Rose bikini you’re going to adorn your beautiful body with this summer!
