These women remind us that no matter what size or shape you are, your body is ALWAYS ready for the beach! Every body is a bikini body if you are wearing it, and Chelsea Duarte (known as Cococurve in the list below) gave us her thoughts:
“A bikini body is a usually a goal for most women and they differ vastly, as women are very happy being all different shapes and sizes.”
She thinks that the conventional magazine airbrushed body is not desirable or achievable for all women, and her confidence comes from within, even though she is a plus size and she has a large frame.
The fashion world has evolved, and there’s a huge variety of plus-size clothing and plus-size models are encouraging women to embrace their curves.
Chelsea has taught herself self-love over the years, and she treats her body as a flower growing from the root.
“You must take care of it, nourish it to grow, allow the elements to take control and always respect the time it takes to become really something special,”
Chelsea, along with the other inspiring women are explaining why wearing a bikini is not an act of bravery, and why stretchmarks, skin conditions and cellulite are all part of being human. Nobody should feel ashamed of their body, or cover themselves for the sake of others! Enjoy the beach and be full of confidence this summer!
