Bikini body… A subject that evoked a lot of discussions and controversies during the past few years. What does bikini body even mean? Beauty ideals have always been in constant evolution. Do beauty standards really exist? How can a socially constructed notion deeply impact our lives, knowing that beauty is a subjective matter? We are privileged to live in a world where options are available and freedom of choice is possible. How did we end up letting society dictate rules about what body types everyone «should» have?
Cynthia, founder and designer of Dyosah (in the pictures below), has been dealing with comments such as «very skinny and flat» since she was a kid. These comments might negatively affect someone’s life. «I never let anyone lecture me about the way I look. I eat well, I train effectively and I feel great about myself», she says. There is no such thing as too fat/ too skinny/ too heavy/ too flat/ too curvy/ too muscular/ too short/ too tall/ too dark/ too pale, etc… The attention is intensely going towards our appearance to the point that we neglect a major priority and what really matters, our physical and mental health. If you FEEL beautiful, people will see your beauty and self-confidence. If you feel strong, it will show. Accepting and loving your body is very important. However, if you are unhappy with the way you feel about yourself or if you’re living an unhealthy lifestyle, it is time to take action. It is crucial to know your options and decide what to do to improve your situation. You can start by watching what you eat and what you put on your skin, move daily, see the beauty in everything and develop positive self-talk. Appreciate what you have and set your own standard. Remember, you might feel worthless to one person, but you are priceless to another!
So what is sexy? Healthy is sexy! Self-love will always be THE standard!
