The No BS Guide To Getting The Perfect Beach Body

#EmbracingMyBody-Dasha-Guyton-Body-Positive-Blogger-Swimsuit-FatkiniEarlier this summer, a Refinery29 survey revealed  how women feel about their bodies, and among the more shocking revelations: 73% of respondents said that wearing a swimsuit at the pool or beach is one of the most stressful situations they face; nearly three in four reported they avoid the beach because of their body image. Sadly, I know all too well how these women feel because I spent the first couple of summers in Chicago letting my mind bully my body into thinking it wasn’t good enough to be a beach body. Unfortunately, these negative feelings are exacerbated by the fact that social media and magazines are packed with tips on how to get that elusive “beach body,” making swimsuit season a time of dread rather than joy for some

Thankfully, those antiquated ideals are on their way out as people begin to reject the expectation that there’s some sort of so-called “perfect bikini body” you should have before slipping on a swimsuit.  These days plenty of women around the world are taking to Instagram wearing their favorite swimsuits with hashtags like #EmbracingMyBody and #EveryBodyIsABeachBody—plus they’re having a ton of fun doing it!

That’s why we rounded up 15 body positive beach babes that show you how to get that beach body you’ve been looking for right now.

      Glad you enjoyed the post but I actually haven’t changed the site layout in over a year 🤔 I’m sure it just looks different on different devices and search engines.

        Desktop and cell version will look different because of Google AMP (accelerated mobile pages) basically they remove the design to speed up the load time for phones but if you visit on desktop you still get to see the site design. Adorable and inspirational? #DayMade 😙
