How could I pass up an opportunity for a potentially super weird experience?
fat acceptance
Being asked to send a photo of myself with a shirt on made me feel like I again should be ashamed of my body.
high waisted
My high-waisted bikini is making me feel worse about my shape and I want to set it on fire. Or at least angrily return it.
body building
No matter your ethnicity, your natural shade or your body chemistry, all competitors are required to tan their bodies to the same shade of reddish brown.
I see lots of kids in bikinis, and I don’t know about you guys, but I have never once said, “Wow, that is one sexy toddler.”
Weeks ago, the folks at Unique Vintage sent me this year's plus-size bikini. I had planned to wear it this weekend, imagining, in my crash diet mentality, that I would have dropped most of the 20 pounds I've gained since last year's bikini by then.

Inspired by Gabi Fresh's smoking "fatkini."

Can all my body issues fit into one little two-piece? Why, yes, they can!
