Suve saabudes kipume kõik muretsema, kuidas keha ruttu nn bikiinivormi saada, unustades, et oma välimuse pärast stressamine ei tee kedagi õnnelikumaks. USA Cosmopolitan koostas nimekirja enesekindlatest naistest, kes tõestavad, et rannas on iga keha rannakeha. Loodetavasti julgustavad need kaunid Instagrami staarid ka sind rannaliival muretult lõbutsema, sest seda väärib igaüks!

Rachel Hollis:

I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who's opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he's never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren't scars ladies, they're stripes and you've earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #RealAndChic #HollisHoliday

„Mul on venitusarmid ja ma kannan bikiine. Mu kõht on alatiseks lotakas, sest minus kasvas kolm hiigelsuurt beebit, ja ma kannan bikiine. Kannan bikiine, sest olen uhke oma keha ja iga armi üle. Venitusarmid tõestavad, et mind õnnistati lastega, ja lotakas kõht näitab, et nägin kõvasti vaeva, et kaalust alla võtta.“

„Kuidas saada bikiinikeha kahe lihtsa sammuga? 1) Vali bikiinid. 2) Pane need oma keha ümber.“

Jessica Kane:

THIS WAS NOT BRAVE. I've been told how brave I am for not having a coverup, but going with out a wrap would only take bravery if I cared what others thought of me, but I don't. I spend my time worrying about things I CAN control and this day, I was only thinking about how fab I felt and how much sun I was catching ☀️👍 Things that DO take bravery? A family battling tragic illness, a mother trying to beat addiction, a person trying to break free of domestic violence, reaching out for help when you have already planned your suicide and feel like you can't breath one more day. THAT is brave. Not wearing a swimsuit at the beach. LIVE life and only worry about what really matters 💯. EDIT // can't believe the support and attention brought to this and thank you from bottom of my heart in helping spread the message to be human shouldn't be brave and to say so diminishes your value and theirs. Join in by sharing your picture with #thisisntbrave. And thank you fellow curvy pioneer @themarcyminute for taking this pic! 👉And keep up with my body diversity mission as I take over as Creative Director of Cool Gal Blue...full deets on my blog ❤️.

„SEE POLNUD VAPPER. Mulle on öeldud, et olen nii vapper, et ma end kinni ei kata, aga ilma hõlstita välja minemine oleks vapper ainult siis, kui mind huvitaks, mida teised minust arvavad, aga ei huvita. … Teate, mis ON vapper? Perekond, kes võitleb traagilise haigusega, ema, kes püüab sõltuvusest vabaneda, inimene, kes üritab koduvägivallast pääseda, abi palumine, kui olen juba enesetapuks valmistunud ja tunned, et ei suuda enam päevagi hingata. SEE on vapper. Mitte rannas trikoo kandmine.“

Hey babes!! This is a repost of an important conversation I had with my daughter that subsequently reached over 18 million people. While it has been an amazing learning tool for adults - I have chosen to use this moment as an opportunity to create a body confidence children's book. ⭐️⭐️I am seeking an illustrator for the book that has a passion for BoPo and spreading the message of self love to children. ⭐️⭐️ This is a low budget self-published passion project, trying to do my very best with limited resources! I am looking for fun, colorful and whimsy, not too lifelike, more of a cute cartoon character that's sweet and charismatic. I would love it to be a young woman that is really fun to work for possible future collaborations as well. If you're interesting in submitting a sample to be considered as the illustrator for the project please send portfolio of a visual illustration of my daughter and I, like in this photo, using the contact button in my profile along w a short bio! The premise of the story line is based on this conversation: ❣️IT MATTERS HOW WE TALK TO OUR DAUGHTERS ABOUT OUR BODIES! ❣️ Today while I was laying at the pool with my daughter: Her: "Why is your tummy big mama?" Me: "What do you mean baby?" Her: "These lines, mama." (Pointing to stretch marks on my tummy) Me: "oh those are my stretch marks!" Her: "Where do they come from?" Me: "well when I was a little older than you, I got some stripes when I grew really fast! And some of these stripes are from when I had you growing in my tummy" Her: looking inquisitively Me: "They are shiny and sparkly, aren't they pretty?" Her: "yes, I like this one the best, it's so glittery. When can I get some?" Me: "oh you will get your glitter stripes when you get a little bit older baby!" They are listening. They are asking. And it is up to YOU to help them shape how they will feel about these things! Will you continue the shame that society has placed on you? Or will you teach her a new way of love? I choose love 💕💕💕 Just do you Xoxo Allie

„Täna, kui ma tütrega basseini ääres lamasin, küsis ta: „Miks su kõht suur on, emme?“ Mina: „Mis mõttes, kullake?“ Tema: „Need jooned, emme.“ (Ta osutas venitusarmidele mu kõhul.) Mina: „Need on mu venitusarmid!“ Tema: „Kust need tulevad?“ Mina: „Kui ma olin sinust natuke vanem, tekkisid mul mõned triibud, kui ma kiiresti kasvasin! Ja mõned triibud on sellest ajast, kui sina mu kõhu sees kasvasid.“ Ta vaatas mind uudishimulikult. Mina: „Need läigivad ja säravad, kas need pole ilusad?“ Tema: „Jah, see on mu lemmik, see sädeleb. Kust mina need saaksin?“ Mina: „Sul tulevad oma sädelevad triibud, kui natuke vanemaks saad, kullake!““

I remember what it felt like to wear a bikini for the first time at the beach three years ago. I remember the stares. The people pulling out their phones to take pics to send to their friends. These days, I don't think twice about those people. I think I blew a kiss to someone taking a pic of me during this shoot. 💋But it's not easy to wear what you want when society is screaming that your body doesn't belong in a bikini. It's still a journey and it's okay to be where ever you are in that process. I feel honored that I got to be there with @fearlesslyjustme when she wore a bikini for the first time on the beach! And I love how @hellarob captured this moment of us laughing because this is really a reflection of what it felt like to share this moment of freedom together!!

„Mäletan, mis tunne oli kolm aastat tagasi rannas esimest korda bikiine kanda. Mäletan seda jõllitamist. Seda, kuidas inimesed võtsid telefoni välja, et sõpradele näitamiseks pilti teha. Nüüd ei mõtle ma sellistele inimestele absoluutselt. Saatsin selle pildistamise ajal kellelegi vist isegi õhusuudluse. Aga pole kerge kanda, mida tahad, kui ühiskond karjub, et sinu keha ei vääri bikiine. See on ikkagi teekond ja on okei olla ükskõik kui kaugel sa parajasti oled.“

Callie Thorpe:

„Räägime tselluliidist. Mul on seda ja tõenäoliselt on sinul ka. See on osa meie nahast, need on rasvamuhud naha all ja ma luban, et ükskõik kui palju kreeme kasutad ja nahka harjad, jääb see sulle ikkagi alles. See ei muuda, milline inimene sa oled ega kindlasti seda, kui hea sa välja näed.“

BREAKING NEWS: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT TO BE WORTHY OF WEARING A BIKINI THIS SUMMER. · I know that goes against every 'Get Beach Body Ready!' message you're seeing right now. Trust me, I used to believe those messages too. I used to spend every single summer starving and sweating to get the body on the left, telling myself that I was only allowed to be seen in swimwear once I'd hit that goal weight (and even once I did, it still wasn't enough). Not once did I ever hear the message that you don't have to shrink your body to deserve a summer in the sunshine. · Which is why I'm telling you now, so that you know the truth: you do not have to lose weight to be worthy of wearing a bikini. · This year I didn't set a goal weight to hit before my holiday. And I didn't sit by the pool sucking my stomach in and worrying what everyone else thought about my body either. I just went. I laughed and played and ate and swam and wore every damn bikini I own without changing my body one bit. And guess what? It was so much better than all the self hatred filled holidays that came before. · Because the only thing I really needed to lose through all those years wasn't weight. It was the bullshit idea that a bikini body is something that you have to earn, when in reality I had one all along. We all have bikini bodies already, and we all deserve a summer in the sunshine. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 #bodypositivepower
