THE 5 COMMANDMENTS OF BEACH BODY CONFIDENCE

BEACH BODY/ BEACH BODY CONFIDENCE

 

Now, you may have mistaken this for a straightforward weight-loss/fitness article from the title – this is actually much more.

You see, Beach Body Confidence is totally and utterly all in the mind. You can work as hard as you like getting your physical shape into tip-top bikini condition but if you haven’t jiggled your mind-set it won’t make a jot of a difference. I see gorgeous slim girls all the time, shying away because of cellulite/stretch-marks/ love-handles or scars. Girls who some of us may consider to be perfect. Instead of enjoying their bodies as they are, they’re wishing for a something more/less and constantly feeling inferior to someone else.

Now, if this resonates with you at all then you’re in the right place. If it doesn’t then you are amazing and we want to hear how you do it!

So, we are clear on one thing – Summer Sexy really is an attitude and not a shape. Let’s have a look at how we can all get ‘into shape’ then….shall we?

 

 

THOU SHALT NOT BE UNCOMFORTABLE

There is absolutely no point in buying beachwear ‘to slim into’. Your clothes should accommodate you and not the other way around. Buy your sizes and buy items you feel sexy in. Regardless of trends or fashion.

THOU SHOULDST FEEL AT EASE

If you are prone to the odd insecurity wobble, get yourself some killer cover-upon or kaftans to throw on when you need them. This is not ‘giving in and covering up’, it’s simply allowing yourself to feel at ease every minute – you are on holiday to relax, experience and enjoy. Throw a sarong around your hips if you choose girls, it’s your life!

THOU MUST SMILE

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind whatsoever that a person who looks at ease and happy on the beach or around the pool radiates beauty and summer like a beacon! If you are uneasy and uncomfortable looking it will shine through the hottest of bikinis and tans and spoil your whole effect. All that summer shopping ruined by a glum face!

THOU SHOULDST SHARE

Advertisements

This one is so important. Ladies, we must stand together when it comes to Body Image/ Fat Shaming/ Body Confidence.

We are all different shapes and sizes and THAT is a beautiful thing to behold.

Why oh why do we feel the need to be put into boxes of body shape and type?

Why oh why do we airbrush and edit until we look the same as our instagram favourites?

We need to start a Normal Body Revolution so that the next generation of young girls, and boys, knows what real women look like and refuses to bow down to the ridiculous standards set by the advertising/fashion industry.

THOU MUST BE PROUD 

I hear people all the time staring that they SHOULD never be seen dead in a bikini, joking about public health & safety and respect for everyone’s eyes etc. All very funny and light-hearted but also very sad. At what point did our own bodies become something to be ashamed of and constantly try to mould into something else that quite frankly is a myth outside of photoshop?

We are on holiday to swim, sunbathe, enjoy, socialise, relax, adventure, EAT – lots of reasons but none of them should be to fade in to the background looking ‘acceptable’.

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in and wear it with a smile. Forget how you look and focus on how you feel – enjoy the precious moments you have. They are too few and far between in this busy old life!

Happy Summer
