The perfect 'bikini body' is just one of the many illogical standards that women are expected to follow. When in reality, wearing a bikini or any swimwear should be about nothing more than personal choice and style. And this is exactly whyΒ these women rocked the beach look:Β 

Because can anyone else even own being sexy so powerfully?

Because rocking a bikini top comes naturally with this much sass!

Because nothing makes a woman look better than wearing what she wants.

I don’t need a superhero, i got my own cape! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ At first, i was really skeptical about the fact that a plus size person like me would be able to pull off a one piece swimsuit... that to flaunting it in a country like India. While some, in their minds admired my confidence as they watched me getting all crazy in the pool, while few eyes questioned as to what the hell has she worn and why. But then I remembered my purpose of buying a swimsuit like this... I LOVE MY BODY and I WILL WEAR WHATEVER THE EFF I WANT! This is not just me breaking stereotype but also kinda proving to myself that it is OKAY to NOT CARE of the illogical myths associated with curvy and plus size women... the biggest myth being... plus size women cant pull off a swimsuit.

Because overpowering society's perceptions with a killer pose is Diva 101.Β 

Β Because you don't have to be a size zero to rock that smile and that body!Β 

Because confidence is always, always more empowering than the 'ideal' body.

Because nothing should ever make you skip pool time.Β 

18 year old me , legit , thought that fat people are " NOT ALLOWED " to wear swimsuits let alone a bikini and a few years down the line it was me who was the First Plus Size person in India to go out on the internet , in front of the entire world , don a Bikini and break all stereotypes regarding what is and isn't allowed for a fat person !!!! Yes , I did get a lot of negative comments , yes some distant family friends did judge my character based on this but that still didn't stop me from empowering women and men to love the way they looked and it never will too ! Today , when I see so many people working on loving themselves and enjoying fashion no matter their size , that is what makes all of it worthwhile and inspires me to continue doing what I do even though the haters think otherwise !!! πŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™πŸŒΊπŸ‘™

Because how can you feel anything but beautiful when you are this confident.Β 

How I wish that growing up I had role models who could show me that you don't need to have a certain body to feel good and beautiful in the pool πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ! As a child/teenager , I'd always find myself in long tights and an I'll fitted men's spandex tshirt everytime that I had to enjoy the pool πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. Few years down the line , the idea of a pool party or a day out by the pool would start stressing me out ,so much so that most of the time I'd bail out on the entire plan πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ ! Even though I have been an extremely confident girl regarding my body , this stigma of donning a swimsuit ,let alone a bikini,was strong in my head. Finally a few years back I decided that enough is enough...There is no wrong way of having a body and there is no right body to wear a swimsuit ! Since then I began enjoying the pool in my swimsuits 😎 but I was still really shy to don a Bikini. 😬 This year I decided to break free from these barriers in my head and I entered into 2018 and the pool wearing a Bikini πŸ‘™πŸ˜ !!! β˜‘οΈβ™₯οΈβ˜‘οΈβ™₯οΈβ˜‘οΈβ™₯οΈβ˜‘οΈβ™₯οΈβ˜‘οΈβ™₯οΈβ˜‘οΈ Ladies we need to stop objectifying and judging our own bodies first , only then will others stop . Start breaking free from these stereotypes that the world has put on the kind of body one needs to have inorder to wear something! Be Confident , Start to Love Yourself and gradually you will realise that you're Beautiful the way you are ! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ€— . . #bodypositivity #stopbodyshaming #stopbullying #bikini #bikinibody #perfect #breakfreewithplixxo #plixxo #plixxobypopxo #effyourbeautystandards #swimsuit #plussize #plussizefashion #plussizevixens #plusisequal #postoftheday #potd #photooftheday #picoftheday #honourmycurves #goldenconfidence #celebratemysize #plussizemodel #bodypositive #loveyourself #bodyconfidence #newyear #fashion #psblogger #plusmodel @plixxo

Because no look is as perfect as the natural look.Β 

Because everyone deserves to bask in their own sunshine.

Because you should never treat yourself as anything less than a diva

Because it is impossible to hide such gorgeousness from the camera.Β Β 

Because beauty can never come with instructions.Β
