If It Fits, Wear It

I seen a status on social media the other day where someone mentioned that two piece bathing suits should not be made in big sizes, then said "just because a two piece bathing suit fits, does not mean you should be wearing it". I didn't get much of a chuckle out of that being on the heavier side myself.

A lot of people do not mean harm or mean to be ugly in what they say. I think they just don't see the other side of reason.

I'll admit, I have made fun of people. Its usually in the way they act or behave. There are so many sizes and shapes of people. Every "body" has a story and everyone is Gods creation and is beautiful. Ugliness is an attitude.

About that 200+ lb. lady walking down the beach in her bikini:

  • Maybe that woman spent 3 hours crying about how she looked before getting the confidence to wear a two piece like all the other women.
  • Maybe her husband spent hours to convinced her to have no shame because he likes how it looked on her.
  • Maybe at one time that lady was 400lbs and struggled hard to get where she is and she feels beautiful now.
  • Maybe that overweight woman has children that she spends all her time with and never has time to exercise. Gyms are expensive ya know. So is weight watchers.
  • Maybe that woman can not afford to buy health foods that only she will eat and has to rely on bread and potatoes to keep her and her family satisfied.
  • Maybe that woman once struggled with anorexia or was made fun of for being so skinny and took years to over come it. 

Before anyone judges what people should wear, weather it be bikinis or spandex, they all have a story. No one wakes up in the morning and says "I love being fat" or "I love being skinny". Ive been in both places and Its hard to loose weight especially after 40. A lot of young people have never and will never see skinny. They were just born that way.

I think a woman is beautiful when she feels beautiful no matter what she wears or how she wears it. It doesn't matter if she's 50 lbs. or 500 lbs. She should love herself and have confidence. If a person feels good, then its all good. If they feel bad health wise, then they should do something about it. But until then, I say, "If it fits wear it!"  That goes for the men too. You are beautiful!
