The → #BeachBodyNotSorry campaign by swimsuitsforall is probably the best thing of the whole year. Denise Bidot is one of my favorite plus models, she’s just gorgeous! Not only is she beautiful but also a mother, so her body has already gone through a wonderful story of love. So there are a few “love marks” (yes, I want to call them that!) on her tummy. She also has cellulite like probably everybody on this planet (yes, even boys and men can have it!). swimsuitsforall did this “Beach Body. Not Sorry.” campaign with her and used absolutely no Photoshop. And OMG – she’s looking sooo hot! I don’t even look at any “imperfections” (why would we call them that?), all I see is one of the world’s most beautiful women, wearing sexy swim wear (I love Adam Saaks’ work, his customized shredded bodies are absolutely on point – I wish I had one too!) and looking like a goddess in bikinis and swim suits.
So: I might not be a model like her, but here’s my #BeachBodyNotSorry style – the first of three we’ve shot (so far) at a few beaches in and around Hamburg. I’m proud to say that I’m okay with me and my body and that I don’t need Photoshop or any other program to change my body in these pictures (well, I don’t even own PS, so there’s not even a chance to see my try it!).
When it’s hot outside, just like these days, all I want to do is get almost naked, jump into the cold water and have fun like everybody else. I don’t want to spend my time thinking about stupid people around me feeling disgusted by the sight of my thick thighs, my huge butt and anything else that’s bigger than usual. That’s me. I’m not a picture in a magazine. I’m a human being. And in order not to melt away, I enjoy my time at the beach like anybody else – without judging others and especially not myself.
