Since we are in summer, and some people are going out to beaches, swimming, walks, and the like (hopefully in a SAFE way), I though it was important to take a day to post some reminders.
First, you are always “summer body” ready or “bikini body” ready. Size does not matter. In addition, make sure you wear a swimsuit that is your size, regardless of what that number may be. As Stacy London has said – if you don’t like that you’re a 12, take a Sharpie and cross out the one. Boom! You’re a 2. Clothes that are your size will flatter your body the MOST and give you more confidence.
Second, do not – I repeat: DO NOT – make comments about aspects of a person’s body or appearance. (Unless maybe if they have something stuck in their teeth – I know I would appreciate knowing that.) This includes:
- Scars, including self-harm scars
- Stretch marks
- Excess or loose skin
- Tummy rolls (or in any other location)
- Weight gained OR weight lost
- Skin conditions
- Darker skin in underarms, inner thighs, etc.
- Hijabs (ex. asking “Isn’t it hot wearing that?)
- …the list continues*
Thank you for joining me in my little PSA for summer weather! See you next week!
