As you count down the days to your vacation, you may be exercising and dieting hard so you can feel confident in your bikini. There is nothing better than walking around in your bikini proud of your toned and sculpted body. Unfortunately, according to a recent survey, less than 20% of women feel confident in their bathing suits. Most of the insecure women feel like they are being judged and scrutinized by other women. This is the sad truth, but you can do something about this if you follow my tips so I can help you to feel confident in your bikini this summer!
1. Ignore the Other Eyes That You Think Are Staring at You
Okay, you may think there are a thousand eyes on you as you enter the pool area or the beach wearing your teeny bikini. But guess what, this is usually all in your head. Most people couldn't care less what bikini you are wearing, so stop feeling self conscious. Do not be intimidated, but walk with confidence. Usually, if and when people are staring at you, it is because they are in awe, not disgust. Keep your head up and be confident in your bikini. Confidence will make you look even more beautiful! So embrace yourself!
2. Wear the Bikini That is Right for Your Curves
If you have a larger bust you may find a strapless bikini top to be a nightmare, so avoid this and find the bikini that fits you and your curves. You can go to a department store or a bathing suit store to find the bathing wear that will fit you like a glove. It is okay if you have to pay a little more for a well fitted bikini because you can have this for years. I have some great bikinis that I have had for 7 years or more and I still get compliments. Bring a friend that can give you their honest opinion so you walk out with the right bikini for your body.
3. Make Sure to Drink Plenty of Water
To eliminate bloating and avoid the bikini bulge, make sure to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. To add a natural diuretic to your water, squeeze a slice of lemon in each glass. This will not only make you look leaner but also feel better about your body. So rock your bikini with confidence!
4. Make Sure You Rock the Cardio Exercises
To sculpt your body and increase your confidence, make sure you integrate cardio exercises like walking, running, or biking to burn mega calories and get your body bikini ready! Aim to exercise with cardio workouts 4-6 days per week. If you are just starting out, begin with just 1-2 days a week.
5. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
We can all list something we may not like about our body, but guess what? All that causes are insecurities, and being insecure is definitely not sexy. Stop comparing yourself to the airbrushed celebrity on the magazine cover. You are beautiful because you are yourself. So love your body and kick all the negative thoughts to the curb. Be your own cheerleader and love your bikini body!
6. Treat Your Body with the Love It Deserves
Eat healthy with fruits, vegetables and whole grains and make sure you exercise. By treating your body with the love it deserves, you can defy obesity genetics if this runs in your family, and you will be more confident in your bikini!
7. Wear Your Bikini with Confidence
Forget about the few pounds you wanted to lose but didn’t, forget about how insecure you were about your butt or your chest and embrace yourself for who you are. Wear your bikini with confidence and walk with your head up and strong posture! I am sure you look amazing. Years from now you will look at pictures of yourself in your bikini and be in awe of just how amazing you look!
Now that you know the ways to wear your bikini with confidence, you better get shopping or searching in your own closet for your bikini. Will you wear a teeny bikini or a more modest two piece? Whatever you do, wear your bikini with confidence!
