Gabi Fresh for s4a Swimwear - swimsuitsforall
so, the bathing suits designed by gabi at gabifresh are cute (though i don’t love that you can’t buy tops and bottoms separately, but i’m pathetically grateful since fatkini options are slim), but the galaxy print bikini is cute (though i’m not sure i get the extra.. strap on the chest) and i love the galaxy cover-up. i burn easily and am covered in beautiful deadly moles, so beach cover-ups are really handy for me.
that’s super cute, right? however, swimsuits 4 all has decided that even though we’re on their site to shop for bikinis, we must truly hate our disgusting fat bodies:
- Cover-up hides hips while minimizing rear and thighs.
- Print breaks up torso and visually slims waist.
i wish gabi well in her endeavors, and think she’s awesome, and appreciate that she designed bikinis for fat women, but i definitely don’t want to give swimsuits for all any money now.
swimsuits for all, you are butts, and you are selling this stuff entirely on the back of the designer’s good reputation and great designs- not because of your gross marketing.
Yeah, this is unfortunate. And that the pieces only go up to a size 24 - though, that may be for some reason I don’t know about that somehow makes sense?
Every body is a bikini body
So it’s the time of year when everyone you know is trying to lose weight because summer is approaching and they want to look good in a swimsuit. Newsflash: you don’t have to lose weight to look good in a swimsuit. I hate the message that only certain bodies are allowed to wear bikinis or be on a beach. Don’t let other people dictate what you wear. If the sight of my body makes people cringe, that’s their problem, not mine.
That suit is so fabulous. And so is Gabi.
