Feeling confident in a swimsuit or a bikini is something we have all struggled with at some point in our lives. We can’t help but fret over that extra bit of weight on our tummy or the stretch marks on our thighs. We try our best to be body confident, but sometimes you can’t help but let those negative thoughts seep in.
We can’t help but compare ourselves to celebrities who seem to look flawless all the time, but at the end of the day- they’re only human too.
Chrissy Teigen has opened up about the pressure to look ‘good’ in a swimsuit in one of her most refreshing interviews to date.
The mum-of-two stressed the importance of putting your happiness first. She told Rita Braver of CBS that she is no rush to get back to her post-baby shape. She is embracing her new body and enjoying her life.
"I really prefer being happy and getting to eat things that I love, still wanting to be healthy, but I just don't care about looking good in a swimsuit anymore. I guess that's the only way to put it."
We love how honest Chrissy is about body image. There is too much pressure put on women to look a certain way in a swimsuit, but we need to remember that our health and happiness are far more important than looking 'perfect'.
We need more celebrity mums to speak up just like Chrissy does. Her honesty is a breath of fresh air.
