What do people think about bikinis?
In Blue Crush, we meet three Hawaiian surfers who work as hotel maids, live in a grotty rental, and are raising the kid sister of one of them. Despite this near-poverty, they look great; there is nothing like a tan and a bikini to overcome class distinctions.
Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don’t take it off until you’re thirty-four.
- Eat healthy
- Move your body. Work out, ride the bike, go running. Anything is good as long as you enjoy keeping your body in motion
- Be happy
- Love your body and treat it right, because no amount of surgery is going to provide you with another body
- Did I say Be Happy? Because, you know if you feel good, you’ll look good
- Your body is bikini ready when you are bikini ready
- NO DIETING! That’s bad for your health and your disposition. Don’t diet, it’s a battle you’ll lose right from the start
- I can’t say it enough: love yourself and your body
- And buy some awesome and pretty, well fitting bikinis. They need to fit on your body, not the other way around. No need to try to look like Twiggy.
Do you want to?
Here’s the thing, no matter what you wear, someone’s going to find someone wrong with it. (Same with me, same with Scarlett Johansson, Nicki Minaj, and literally any other woman you can think of.)
You’re the one who decides what you wear and why you wear it. If you want to wear a bikini to the beach, then wear the bikini. If you don’t want to, then don’t. If you want to, but you don’t think your confidence is up to it, then wait.
That’s okay too.
