Yesterday I impulse bought 3 fatkinis from Target. I didn’t try them on and was worried about the fit because they’re an XL and usually I’m a 2X, but they look pretty rad. (The tops are a bit small admittedly. Not sure what I’m going to do about that, if anything.)
Why do obese people think it’s ok to wear a fucking bikini? This is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. Put some clothes on!
P.S. lunarisacacia, it’s because it’s completely okay for a person to love themselves at any size. I noticed that you don’t have any photos of yourself on your blog, it’s all fitspo and weight loss food. Part of me feels like there’s some sort of internalized self hatred going on. The funny thing about beauty is that you get to decide what your definition of it is going to be. So if I don’t fit your definition of beauty, that’s perfectly okay, feel free to look away, but I certainly don’t have to subscribe to yours. (Your body, whatever it looks like right now, probably fits into my definition of beauty exactly as it is right now. If you focused more on loving yourself and less on trying to shame other people into feeling as awful as you do, you might have a better time.)
This babe though… (｡♥‿♥｡)
Can we talk about this photo for a second? I found it while I was browsing on Buzzfeed, and it really stuck out to me. She has visible stretch marks. She is an Olympic athlete (Lauren Ludwing of Germany), a seriously kick-ass human being, and she has stretch marks just like the rest of us. And she isn’t covering them up with makeup, or wearing a bigger bikini bottom. Because stretch marks are nothing to be ashamed of. She has an absolutely killer body, that she worked hard to earn. This just proves that stretch marks are so unbelievably common, and absolutely not something to be ashamed of.
