Förra året satte ståuppkomikern och programledaren Karin Adelsköld huvudet på spiken när hon lade upp en bild på sin bikinikropp. Hon berättade att hon laddade upp bilden eftersom hon och många med henne känner viss bikiniångest varje år – helt i onödan.
– Det tränas, hetsas och bantas för den så kallade bikinikroppen. Men alla har ju en bikinikropp. Det handlar om att stå emot det här idealet. Det är så skevt. Jag kände att det är viktigt att göra det här eftersom att jag inte lär vara ensam med bikiniångest, sa hon till Nöjesbladet då.
Att vi fortfarande ska plågas av denna tröttsamma bild av att en bikinikropp på något sätt handlar om att man ska ha en viss slags kropp är sorgligt. Men det är på väg att ändras. Nyligen lade den kroppspositiva instagrammaren Jazzy ut en bild på henne och hennes man som håller händer på stranden – en bild som i skrivande stund har fått över 90 000 gillamarkeringar.
– Genom åren har den här mannen älskat varenda kurva, varenda bristning på min kropp. Jag förstod aldrig varför, hur kunde han älska något som inte var ”perfekt”? Men nu förstår jag att jag har en perfekt kropp, skrev hon.
Over the years this man has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body. I never understood why! • How could he love something that isn't "perfect"? How could a man who was "born fit" love someone like me! I don't have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I walk, hell if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps (lmao)!! But now I see I do have the "perfect" body!! Every roll, every curve and every stretch mark is put on me just perfect to make both of us happy!!! I love my body and I finally see why he does too!! • • Photo credit: @ryanwmedia • • • #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #everyoneisbeautiful #tummylove #youarebeautiful #aspiringmodel #aspiringplussizemodel #celebratemysize #curvysensedoll #confidence #lovemybody #lovemybelly #loveyourbody #selflove #summerbody #bikini #bikinibody #bodylove #bodypositive #bodypositivity #womenofallsizes #support #love #positive #plussize #positivity #plussizegang #positivevibes #youarebeautiful
Här är ännu fler kvinnor som visar att alla kroppar är strandkroppar:
JAG ÄR TJOCK LÅT MIG FÅ VARA TJOCK KALLA MIG SJÄLV TJOCK ANMÄRKA ATT JAG ÄR TJOCK PRATA OM ATT JAG ÄR TJOCK. Så fort jag nämner något om att jag är tjock, totalt neutralt, oavsett sammanhang så ska alltid alltid alltid reaktionen vara "nej, sluta, du är jättefin/vacker". Varför står du framför mig och försöker trösta mig för något jag inte är ledsen över? HUH? Ja jag är jättefin och vacker, jag sa faktiskt aldrig något annat.
My daughter called me fat today. She was upset I made them get out of the pool and she told her brother that mama is fat. I told her to meet me upstairs so we could chat. Me: "what did you say about me?" Her: "I said you were fat, mama, im sorry" Me: "let's talk about it. The truth is, I am not fat. No one IS fat. It's not something you can BE. But I do HAVE fat. We ALL have fat. It protects our muscles and our bones and keeps our bodies going by providing us energy. Do you have fat?" Her: "yes! I have some here on my tummy" Me: "that's right! So do I and so does your brother!" Her brother: "I don't have any fat, I'm the skinniest, I just have muscles" Me: "actually everyone, every single person in the world has fat. But each of us has different amounts." Her brother: " oh right! I have some to protect my big muscles! But you have more than me" Me: "Yes, that's true. Some people have a lot, and others don't have very much. But that doesn't mean that one person is better than the other, do you both understand? Both: "yes, mama" Me: "so can you repeat what I said" Them: "yes! I shouldn't say someone is fat because you can't be just fat, but everyone HAS fat and it's okay to have different fat" Me: "exactly right!" Them: "can we go back to the pool now?" Me: no 🤣🤣 __________________ Each moment these topics come up i have to choose how I'm going to handle them. Fat is not a bad word in our house. If I shame my children for saying it then I am proving that it is an insulting word and I continue the stigma that being fat is unworthy, gross, comical and undesirable. Since we don't call people fat as an insult in my household, I have to assume she internalized this idea from somewhere or someone else. Our children are fed ideas from every angle, you have to understand that that WILL happen: at a friends house whose parents have different values, watching a tv show or movie, overhearing someone at school- ideas about body image are already filtering through their minds. It is our job to continue to be the loudest, most accepting, positive and CONSISTENT voice they hear. So that it can rise above the rest. Give me a 🙌🏻 if this resonated w u! Just do you! Xoxo Allie
Summer is here so please make the most of it!! I spent my day in the sun and enjoyed every second 🤓. If you haven't been to the beach/pool for years because you hate showing your body…. STOP❗️❗️❗️ there's a better way of living your life, trust me. You have to accept the way you are because you only have one body 😁 love it 🙏🏻 appreciate it. If you're unhappy with something that can be changed start making changes. If you can't change it just accept it. Find that balance we all need ⚖️ Happy Sunday everyone 😘
I could've held my body differently to make myself look thinner. I could've chosen more "flattering" lighting so my skin looks more even. I could've edited out my cellulite and slimmed down my hip fat. I could've changed every part of my body but I didn't. I could've done so many things to conform but I didn't. I am empowering myself by loving my body at every angle, in every way, in every position. It's hard but it's worth it and I hope this photo inspires you to do the same 💞👙 Swimsuit and bag from @primark #primarksunsavers #ad #effyourbeautystandards
Yoooooo Your girl is fresh and back from vacation and guess what? She's gained some weight. And no, I don't know exactly how much because I haven't weighed myself since 2014 when I threw away my scale, but I’m definitely heavier than when I left. And according to our ED's, that's the worst thing that could happen. Right? The. Worst. Because ALL OUR LIVES we've been taught that we needed to lose weight to prepare for vacation. To prepare for special events. To prepare for photos. To prepare for the moments in our lives we want to remember, we need to make sure we are thin enough to enjoy them. But to that I call BULLSHIT. The circumference of your waist has no effect on the deliciousness of chocolates or the saltiness of french fries or the sweetness of ice cream. Your pant size cannot feel the breeze of the ocean on your skin or the warmth of the sunshine on your hair. YOUR BODY IS A VESSEL FOR EXPERIENCE. It's the home for your spirit that rejoices in all of the things you're there to do and see and smell and taste and be surrounded by. It is the vehicle that allows you to experience a new and softer existence, if only for a little while. This vacation I ate all the foods I wanted to eat. I didn't deprive myself because of how many calories, or how much I've been walking or not walking. I ate chocolates even though I wasn't hungry. I put real sugar and full fat milks in my coffees. I ate french fries off a stand in Bruges. My body allowed me to do all of those things. It gave me the energy I needed, the comfort I craved, the strength required to be present there. And I watched my body adjust. I watched my belly soften and my muscles relax. I watched it ease into vacation mode. And when my body eases? that's OKAY. If a softer existence means a softer me? I'll take it. (Lingerie by @aerie, forever squish supporters) #vacationmode #loveyourvessel #softerme #embracethesquish #mermaidthighs #nothighgapnoproblem
