    Love this! Such an important reminder during summer. We all have bodies and we all deserve to wear bikinis and enjoy the beach no matter what those bodies look like.

    • Couldn’t agree more, Amanda! I’m all for enjoying summer fun at every size 🙂

    Love love love this. I used to be guilty of comparison and feeling like I couldn’t wear a particular type of swimsuit. Now I realize how silly that is! wearing whatever the heck ya want is so freeing. Besides, two pieces are more comfy 🙂

    • Forgive that guilt girl, you weren’t alone in comparison making. Here’s to a brighter, sunnier, and more confident summer season!

    Wow! It is so refreshing to hear someone stand-up to the twisted media assault on women’s self esteem. Don’t hold back. My daughter will be reading your articles as soon as she is old enough to read 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind words! I hope to raise my daughter in the image of self love one day as well and make sure she knows her body is worth so much more than its size

  • hahaha, I used to hide when I did something bad too, but the rest of me has nothing to do with that! ;P Love this post! <3 Hell to the no on letting the media hold us back on enjoying life!

    So… even though I don’t wear a bikini, I agree that we need to take the emphasis off the body and put it more on the joy of the heart. <3

  • Yes to all of this! Summer and life are for enjoying, not obsessing about how you look while you’re doing it, and not enough people recognize that.

  • Love this message and couldn’t agree more! Wear what makes you feel invincible. I always remind myself that comparison is the thief of joy!!
