Holly Williams for Art-Sheep

There are many few among us that can confidently and, more importantly, honestly say that they have never in their lives thought about going out to the beach in their bikinis with a certain amount of dread. Yes, let’s admit it, not every summer finds us all ready to uncover our bodies to the sun’s and the world’s pitiless glare, or does it? There is someone out there that actually tells us to take all those two-week, starving diets and “how to get the perfect bikini body” magazine issues and simply toss them in the trash. The sister preaching is no other than stunning size 24 model Tess Holliday, first model in her size to sign to a model agency.

Holliday states, “I hope #SimplyBekini inspires women to love themselves and their wobbly bits. All women need to do to get a bikini body is to put a bikini on, then they’re ready to hit the beach! There is no such thing as a perfect body and the hardest barrier for women to overcome is themselves. And no wonder, considering the skinny body ideals that are portrayed widely across the media today.” So for those of you still wondering, the drill is simple: a. Find an awesome bikini, b.Wear it, c. There you go! Bikini body.
