If you feel a little self-conscious rocking a bikini on the beach or by the pool, don’t worry, you’re definitely not alone.
However, we tend to think that that is all the more reason to face your fears and feel confident with your own body, because at the end of the day, no one is perfect and we could go on and on about what we wish we could change.
After having three kids, Rachel Hollis, who also owns her own business, The Chic Site, felt like the experience has really taken a toll on her body… and that it showed. But nothing could stop this gorgeous and fit mom from throwing back on her bikini and wearing it paired with the one thing that makes women beautiful: confidence.
“I have stretch marks, and I wear a bikini,” Hollis shared alongside a photo of herself in her teeny bikini on a trip to Cancún, Mexico with her family, including children ages 8, 6 and 2. “I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies, and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy … (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini.”
The mom and businesswoman went on to say she wears her two-piece suit, “because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it,” she continued. “Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. Flaunt that body with pride!”
The post has since gone very viral, with women of all ages, backgrounds, shapes, and sizes responding that she’s inspired them.
“It touches my heart that people are having this reaction to it,” Hollis told Today.com, explaining how many women have also posted their own bikini photos in support.
