It is beach season and a time when some plus size girls and women tend to hide their bodies in cover ups at the beach. I watched with interest as plus size blogger, Gabi Gregg was interviewed on the Today Show about posting photos of plus size women in bikinis.
Gabi posted an image of herself in a bikini when she was on vacation and was amazed by the outpouring of positive and even some negative comments on wearing a bikini, which she calls, Fatkini. Gabi encouraged other plus size women to send their vacation images to xoJane because she wanted to show more people that all women, regardless of weight or size, can be happy heading to the beach.
Gregg said it was important for women of all shapes and sizes to embrace their bodies. She encouraged her readers to embrace what they have. “Don’t let body shame keep you from having a good time!” She wrote on her blog.
Great idea! What do you think?
