More and more women of all sizes are embracing their bodies at the beach and ditching the black swim skirts and oversized tees for plus-size bikinis instead. After all, a day at the beach or pool is always better when you wear a bold swimsuit that makes you feel unstoppable! I always wore basketball shorts and a T-shirt to swim in. Firstly because I could never find a bathing suit that fit, and secondly because I was desperate to hide my body. It started with sleeveless shirts, and then crop tops, and then finally a bikini. The moments leading up to my first time were filled with a lot of anxiety and trepidation. But that day when I was wearing that bikini , fat body and all, out in the degree Texas wild, I felt so empowered—it was unbelievable. It felt like I was taking back control over my body and my comfort. I gained 80 pounds while we were together, and he openly shared his dislike of my weight gain.

Body-pos blogger Kenzie might be all about helping you "love your damn self," but she opened up in this Instagram post about how she hasn't always had that level of confidence: "This girl right here used to not be able to: 1. Leave the house, 2. Look at her face the in the mirror, 3. She didn't even own a full length mirror till 26 years old, 4. Wear t-shirts comfortably, 5. Had to work out fully clothed and covered, including yoga classes, 6. Have a panic attack when someone wanted to touch her, 7.
I was supposed to not show my fat body, to fight "the bulge," to do whatever necessary to change my shape. So, I wore my two-piece, rejecting the notion that the body I live in is something to be ashamed of. A friend took pictures.
For years, I remember looking at a photo of my three-year-old self on the beach that was hanging up at my parents' house and thinking, "I haven't worn a bikini since then. While I've continued to steer clear of the my three-old-self's bowl cut, I have gotten back into bikinis thanks to the plethora of options now available to plus-size women. This is thanks much in part to the oft-credited inventor of the term "fatkini," Gabifresh, whose collaborative line for Swimsuitsforall makes many an appearance on this list of plus-size bikini babes. When you're in the plus-size community and part of the body positive movement, it's really not a big deal to see a fat woman in a bikini. In fact, it's common. But as evidenced by the viral explosion of Skorch Magazine publisher Jessica Kane's beach photo , it's still major mainstream news that a fat woman wears a swimsuit to the beach like a "normal" human being. I realize that most people are still not exposed to so many beautiful fat babes in bikinis enough on a regular basis to find it "normal" yet. So even though I'm still not sure if I should be wearing my winter jacket some days or not, I wanted to share just a few of the many gorgeous bikini photos that I've seen already this year on the 'gram in anticipation of summer, to remind you that bikini season doesn't have a size limit.
