Ever see the term 'bikini body' and think 'I wish I had one of those'? Well everybody has a body and anyone can buy a bikini. Simple.
After a whole year of having a bikini I found on EBay, sitting in my watch list, I bought it. Three weeks later, it arrived on my birthday. I went straight upstairs, got undressed and tried it on. And you know what? I have a bikini body!! Bikini+body=bikini body
My kids didn't laugh or make jokes (always a bonus!), I was just me, in a bikini and nothing happened. No end of the universe crap or my mirror blowing up. I twirled and jiggled my tassels to full effect and went online and bought it in a swimming costume too.
There's so much hate, bullying and body shaming these days. No one should shy away from wearing what they want, posting certain pictures online or God forbid, eating in public, in fear of being snarked. Yes it happens, and of course it's not nice but if you truly believe in you and your self worth, what does it really matter? You have one life and there's no time to put off such simple things you may regret. X
