Brittany Gibbons Dons Bikini and Shows Women Positive Body Image

Brittany Gibbons, blogger of,  each year, wears a bathing suit in public.  This year, however, Gibbons upped her challenge by wearing a bikini.   How great is that?  For more info, go to Good Morning America.


After trying on dozens of suits, Gibbons, founder of the Curvy Girl Guide, shared two options with her readers.  The responses were immediate. Most were positive, some not so much…

What really impressed me was how she summarized her bikini search.

Brittany says, “To some this may not be beauty or strength.  To some this may be gossiped about or pitied. Maybe even labeled gross or pinned as motivation as to what not to be. ”

She adds, “To them I say get your own mountain, this one’s mine.”

Well said.    Retailers are figuring out that every woman wants to look sexy, have fun, and be in style, regardless of size.

Mainly, because women like Brittany are showing them the way!

    I say you go girl! You are beautiful and you look great! I am a 53 yr old women who has been sizes from 3-12 in my life. I never looked that good in a swim suit. Average women are not model thin and you are a positive picture of “normal” It is encouraging and positive especially for younger women who believe normal is not normal.
