Don’t Let These Misconceptions Stop you from Flaunting a Micro Bikini
In our modern society, more and more people are becoming much open-minded in terms of diverse bikini styles. After all, donning a sexy bikini at the beach is nothing really new to us, right? However sadly, there are still common misconceptions about bikinis that are deeply rooted in our society’s way of thinking.
Well, we are here to clear all these negative impressions in hopes of giving you a more positive outlook when it comes to body positivity. As what strong and confident women say, “If you have it, flaunt it!”
It’s only for women with ‘perfect’ body shapes
It’s normal to have this misconception and we can’t really blame you since bikini fashion models had always been the ones in size 10 and below. Well, times have changed and in this modern time, style enthusiasts, including prominent fashion designers are getting models in different body shapes. From petite models to plus size curvy models – they are all conquering the runways!
There’s no size that’s too big or too small for micro bikinis and that’s a fact. The beauty of microkinis is that they come in so many kinds that give you the freedom to choose what’s best for your body type. If you take some time browsing the internet for different kinds of micro bikinis, you will surely come across designs that suit each specific body type. So do not be discouraged if you think you don’t share the same body type as that famous bikini model in that fashion magazine spread! It’s all about being confident in your own body and finding your perfect match.
Micro bikinis are only for millennials
Looking at famous young models flaunting their gorgeous microkinis on social media may easily give you the impression that it is a swimwear that only suits young women. That is so not true! As a matter of fact, younger women (ages 18 to 25) tend to stay away from revealing micro bikinis compared to older women. This is a time where most women are still in the process of building up their self-esteem so the fear of being body-shamed is still there.
Most adult women have already established such open-mindedness and liberation at a certain age and that is what drives them to try something more expressive and daring. We’re not saying that young women should try it but the point is, micro bikinis are for everybody! Additionally, they totally make a great swimwear go-to for all women because it makes an empowering statement that shows how all women should be proud and confident of their own body – regardless of their age!
They are not wearable at all
Some types of micro bikinis can be overly revealing so it’s pretty common to think that it’s not as wearable as the traditional bikini. However, it is not true that it is not wearable ‘at all’. There are types of microkinis that give you that free-spirited, sexy vibe while still being able to flaunt it in the general public.
We are in an era where people are more aware of issues involving body shaming and freedom of expression so the public has become more comfortable with less fabric. In fact, if you take a stroll in a very popular beach destination, you will surely spot a number of women donning micro bikinis. It’s totally wearable so you shouldn’t be held back by the fear of being judged by people.
However, it is still safe to keep in mind that there are types of micro bikinis that are not deemed for public wear such as Micro Euro bikinis and Slingshot bikinis so prior to visiting a public beach, take some time to research about its legal swimwear requirements. You can wear these extra daring types of microkinis in a private backyard pool party or nude beaches where it’s more acceptable.
It would look unflattering on my small/big butt size
Just like what we have previously mentioned about body shapes and sizes, it’s all about choosing the right one for you! If you have been blessed with a big booty, then you should feel confidently beautiful in a micro bikini.
Sadly, some fashion blogs advice women with big butts to cover them up with full coverage bikini bottoms. While this option is all about personal preference, it’s still wrong to assume that women with big booties have no right to flaunt their gorgeous cheeks in a micro bikini! Take some inspiration from bootylicious celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian and Ashley Graham who were all seen flaunting their bodies in microkinis. It can be you, too!
On the other hand, if you have a small or flat butt, this swimwear should never discourage you. As a matter of fact, less fabric would create the illusion of having curved and lifted buttocks. The right cut, such as heart-shaped thongs will give your cheeks a beautiful lift – ready to hit the beach!
It does not give an appropriate image
Times have changed! Even the media who used to censor women in bikinis are more generally accepting of this evolving micro bikini fad. As we now live in the modern times, people are more exposed to the culture of being more open-minded, expressive and more loving when it comes to their bodies. Although we still can’t completely shun the fact that women are still objectified up to this day by the way they dress and express themselves through style. However, it’s a mindset that’s deemed highly unacceptable not only for women but also for men today.
As we are more aware of these social issues, people are more sensitive in terms of creating stereotypes about women who love dressing up more freely. There are still a lot of things to overcome, but thanks to the power of social media, people are more confident about standing up for themselves when it comes to liberating themselves from sexual stigma. Wearing something that makes you feel confident and empowered should never be sexualized.
As long as you are happy and confident of the body you’re in, there’s nothing to fear! Micro bikinis are not just a trend but also a means of self-expression and individuality. Don’t let others tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear because you have every right to do things your own way. Your body, your choice!
