Bikini Confidence - How I Do My Best To Feel Confident in a Bikini
Summer is coming and that means days at the beach and rocking around in a bikini. I don’t know about you but after a winter being wrapped up that makes me nervous. I have nothing to be nervous about of course but I do have little tricks that help me feel confident and I thought I would put them down on the blog. Not just for you babes, but also a reminder for me.
I promise you, you are a beautiful human and we are all blessed to be unique shapes and sizes. We are all blessed with beautiful bodies which keep us alive. For some our bodies help us walk, run, move. We can see, feel and love. Our bodies are amazing so we should love and respect them as much as we can. I know personally that is easier said then done especially in a world with Instagram bikini babes and celebrity revenge bodies and of course, we always want to look and feel our best. I know I do.
I hope these tips help you, not that you need it of course, but let me know if you have any tips to share too!
Find the best Bikini for your shape, Don’t just follow trends.
I am blessed with bigger boobs, it is what it is. I used to try and fit into your standard bikinis, and well they never quite worked. This year I discovered Lilly & Lime Swimwear and the bikini arrived, it fit perfectly and I actually felt amazing, pale and all. Lilly & Lime make Bikini Swimwear for D cup and upwards, they specialise in it. The range is amazing and the pricing is reasonable too. I was really impressed and got a peach number.
They have an amazing size finder online and you can send them your measurements for the perfect fit. It is stress free online shopping. For me my E boobs are safe, I am not spilling out of the cup but still feel sexy and curvy. I feel amazing.
A tan always helps me out.
I like feeling tan, it makes me feel summer ready but Im not about that bake life so Im a fake tan girl. I do however hate applying tan and sitting around. With that being said I have been trying a few numbers and have two Fan tanners. For an express tan I am loving Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam - it is 1 hour express and I buff it on and watch a TV Show and I’m done. For a more natural alternative I am also loving Honey Tan, however this does take a bit longer to develop.
Spend Time loving Your Body
Every morning night I moisturise my body, my legs and my elbows are key factors for me which need a little love. I like to use Aveeno during the day, and at nighttime L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream. Not only does moisturising make me feel more confident and in tune with my body it also helps that tan last longer.
At the beach also please don’t forget that SPF!
Consider Who You Follow On Social Media
Everybody is a bikini body, but be sure to watch who you follow on social media. Never compare yourself to someone’s highlight reel. Ask yourself, does this person inspire me? does this person make me feel good about myself? and if they don’t then hit that unfollow girl. Your time is precious so watch how you spend it. And if you are looking for body confidence babes to follow I love the following - Dana Patterson and Iskra Lawrence are mega babes for me.
Okay angels, these are my tips!
And remember EVERY BODY is a Bikini Body!
