Sunshine & Chill: How to be Confident & Stylish at the Beach!!!


Spending my day at the beach is one of my favorite summer activities, I just love soaking up the sun, sand and surf, but more importantly I live for a fun cute bathing suit. So this year I decided to push myself even further and I wore a bikini for the 1st time ever to the beach.

Last year I got my feet wet and explored the joys of wearing a fatkini poolside, I definitely turned heads but it helped me to feel more confident and fierce in my own skin. So this year on my 1st beach day of season I eagerly grabbed my bikini and headed to the beach. I am not going to lie donning a fatkini at the beach was a little more intimidating at first then at the pool, for a number of variables. One, there is way more people at beach and two, waves can be very disrespectful to a bathing suit!!! But I quickly got over my insecurities and enjoyed myself, I never felt more liberated in my life!!!

Tips to feel Confident & Stylish:

1.     Stop worrying about who is watching!!! Just relax and have fun, personally I go to the beach to unwind and enjoy nature. I am not overly concerned about the people around me and I feel that for the most part other beachgoers feel the same. Honestly everyone that goes to the beach is putting themselves on display, making themselves vulnerable for criticism. Keeping that in mind helps me to be confident with myself because NO one has the “PERFECT” body.

2.     Get a good fitting bathing suit that you love with cute accessories. There are so many options and styles for plus size women these days that it is simply overwhelming. For me I love a unique fun bathing suit that has really good support for the “girls” because I like to be active at the beach and I love waves. Pair that with a cute beach bag, sandals and shades and you will feel like a million bucks!!!!!

   3.     Make an adventure of the day, go with people that you love and feel comfortable with. Perhaps go to a new beach and explore. You will be guaranteed to have a good time and let the sun melt away your insecurities.
