Here’s a special weekend kiss...

Ich bin ja ein absolutes Papakind. Und trotzdem gibt’s von uns zusammen irgendwie kein schönes Foto. Dafür diesen legendären Faceswap. Ich finde, mein Papa geht super als Asterix durch. 😂 Auf jeden Fall: schönen Vatertag, lieber Papi! Ohne dich wäre ich aufgeschmissen. Einen besseren Helden hätte man mir nicht geben können! ♥️

Ich bin ja ein absolutes...

#mybodyisnotyourquarantinenightmare - ich hab‘ mir viele Gedanken dazu gemacht, ob und wie ich so ein Foto posten möchte. Schließlich bin ich die Erste, die immer wieder sagt, dass dieses ganze Nacktheitsding, vor allem bei den Plus-Size-Bloggern, irgendwie Überhand genommen hat und in den sozialen Medien gefühlt nur noch das klassische „Sex sells“-Prinzip für Likes und Klicks und Reaktionen sorgt (dass die meisten davon von ekligen Typen Ü40 kommen, lassen wir dabei mal bei Seite). Trotzdem sage ich auch immer wieder, dass es wichtig ist, auch stinknormale, unbearbeitete Körper in den Medien zu sehen. Nicht zuletzt, damit sich das Bild irgendwann auf Dauer in unseren Köpfen festsetzt, dass auch dicke Körper etwas Normales sind - nicht ein Grund, sich zu schämen. Es geht dabei nicht darum, ein „ungesundes Körperbild“ zu glorifizieren oder zu sagen, dass Dicksein toll ist. Und immer wieder frage ich mich, was die Kritiker denn glauben - dass jemand kommt und sagt „Hey, so fett will ich jetzt auch werden!“? Nein, dafür sorgt unser Schönheitsideal nämlich an jeder Ecke. Und so ist auch jetzt gerade, in Zeiten von Corona, Quarantäne und Selbstisolation - so scheint es zumindest - das größte Problem der Leute, dass sie ja zunehmen und fett werden könnten. Als gäbe es auf der Welt grad kein größeres Problem als Gewicht zuzulegen. Es werden unzählige Memes gepostet, Vorher-Nachher-Corona-Albträume, Witze darüber, wie man sich jetzt vollfuttert,... Ja, dicker werden ist kein Ziel, nichts, wonach man strebt. Aber wenn ich Bilder sehe, auf denen dünne Menschen neben dicken Menschen zu sehen sind und sich darüber lustig gemacht wird, dann ist das weder unterhaltsam, noch irgendwie cool. Es ist verletzend. Für all diejenigen, die auf der „so werde ich nach Corona aussehen“-Seite abgebildet sind. Mein Körper ist kein Quarantäne-Albtraum. Genauso wenig wie er ein Ideal ist. Mein Körper ist mein Körper und ich bin dankbar für ihn. Er mag seine gesellschaftlichen Defizite haben und ab und zu nervt mich der Anblick auch, so wie jeden von uns, aber ich bin dankbar, einen gesunden und funktionierenden Körper zu haben, der mich durch diese Zeit trägt und (mich) nicht aufgibt. ♥️

Wer weiß, wie der diesjährige Sommer wohl wird... am Ende denke ich mir momentan jedes Mal, wenn ich dann doch mal rausgehe „make it count“ und mach‘ mich dann doch noch ein bisschen mehr hübsch als ich müsste. Einfach, weil ich es irgendwie vermisse. Macht ihr das auch so? ♥️ • 📷 @bluthoernchen • #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

I guess this is more of a pool-party outfit instead of a beach look, but we shot it at the beach, so that’s today’s post title. :)

I was ready for the beach with my new bikini (which I’ll show you in more detail next week!) but had to wear something for the walk there and wanted to wear those sheer beach pants that I bought → last year. I still needed a top and went for another sheer piece – that’s how the look was created. I thought it was funny to bring back the dots of the bikini, so I wrapped the upper part of the bikini bottom over the pants and went for a small dotted scarf around my neck. The hat is a nice accessory but also important when you want to protect your head from the sun. ;) This one is probably not the most beach-like choice but the best one for an all-black look. ;)

I’ve collaborated with persona and some fellow international bloggers for a special little summer project and my first #BeachBodyNotSorry post of this year. :)

By the way: you can already see the same swimsuit (but totally different evening looks) at → Susie, → Iris and → Theodora. Don’t hesitate to check the hashtag #mypersonasummerday on Instagram to see who else is sharing her beach look and how you can spend your summer day with persona. ;)

As a huge fan of African prints, this swimsuit was my first choice and since we all fell in love with the same suit, I had to buy it myself cause there was none left (the other girls were faster, haha – it-piece alert!), but I had this idea in mind and didn’t want to change anything. But that’s fine because now I’ve got another swimsuit for you to win today! It’s not the same one but a great basic swimsuit with lovely details, which will hopefully make a girl very happy and ready for this summer! ♥

At least by buying something from my own money (I know, people always think that bloggers get everything for free, so that’s why I’m mentioning this today!), I’m totally allowed to say that this was a good investment (but believe me – I never lie when it comes to gifted products!). It is a very cool swimsuit, of high quality and perfect for women with fuller figures (and those who have more bust than me – so they can fill out the cups, which you can also remove if you don’t like them). ;) This is definitely a swimsuit for every day and it also looks great if you want to incorporate it into your evening look – and that’s just how we’ll change the topic from the daytime beach look to evening chic. My idea was to bring the print back in with the pochette and add a neutral color (I love this very special purple-ish brown!) with the dress.

The good thing about this dress is that it’s very light – that’s why it is perfect for summer, warm evenings, BBQs outside or rooftop pool parties. You can also wear it without a belt, I just went for it because I love to accentuate my waist, but it definitely looks great without it too and the loose fit is even more comfortable. ;)

One of you can now win this swimsuit worth €135 in size L (EU size 46/48). Especially if you’ve got a larger cup size (I’d say it probably fits best with a D or E cup), you’ll love this swimsuit. ♥ All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me where you’d like to wear it – by Friday, June 24. The winner will be announced here and in the comment section and should write me an e-mail to receive the swimsuit. Please don’t forget to read the terms and conditions1 at the end of this blog post!

The winner is 202snoopy – congrats!

Summer’s over and so is my → #BeachBodyNotSorry special that I have been doing this season. It’s been a lot of fun to share my beach looks with you and it definitely was a matter close to my heart to encourage you all to just don’t give a s*** and head over to the next beach or pool and wear whatever you want, whether it’s a bikini or a swimsuit or you still prefer to cover up a little more with a beach dress or towel. Everything’s okay as long as you feel great. And you should never – I repeat: NEVER – make this dependent on others. Because YOU decide how you feel, how you look, who you want to be – not strangers. Not even your friends or your family. Your body – your rules. And I want to add: your life – your rules.

Coming back to the topic of today’s blog post: in this little recap, I want to show all of my beach looks again and add a few pictures I took on “real” beaches in Brazil during my vacation (a post about it is already in the making, so stay tuned!). And to let you know: it was great. Nobody looked at me in a bad way (at least I didn’t catch anybody watching) and even if – I didn’t care. Because I went to the beach to have fun and I definitely did. I had a great time at several beaches, crowded ones, remote ones, with my family or with complete strangers. Nobody treated me badly because of my body, nobody even mentioned it. All I got was compliments on my beautiful beach wear, on the new bikini I bought in Rio, on what I brought to show off at the famous and not-so-famous beaches. Nobody called me fat or ugly, I never felt like a stranded whale and nobody gave me the feeling that this is not where I’m supposed to be. Because in the heat, that’s where everybody is allowed to be – refreshing oneself in the sea, sunbathing on the beach and maybe even sharing an ice-cold beer with friends.

I really hope that I could at least change one person’s mind and help her to be able to go to the beach without being afraid of being insulted, be it by looks, laughter or words. You’re better than someone else’s small-minded brain that’s not capable of accepting diversity. And you should never listen to these people.

Never forget: everyBODY is beautiful, even if it’s not your own personal taste how someone looks – it’s not up to you to define beauty for the world and it’s not up to you to judge others. And you should never ever feel sorry about your (beach) body.

From all those beach wear pieces I’ve shown you in the last weeks, this swimsuit is my absolute favorite. I’ve never seen such a gorgeous piece and even though I’ve warred with myself for some time (especially because of the price), I had no chance and had to order it. “Just to prove that it won’t fit! As every designer piece! I’ll definitely send it back!”, were my words. Until it arrived. And fitted perfectly. And that’s when our fate and love was sealed. I kept it, obviously.

So in order to make this dreamy swimsuit all justice, I went for the most perfect beach look I could create (well, in my opinion). I bought some transparent beach pants for my vacation and the walk to the beach (imagine me working the “calçadão” from Ipanema to the song “Girl from Ipanema”, haha!), and of course had to try some looks before flying away. Now, I’m hopefully sitting at the beach while this blog post goes online – maybe also wearing this look, enjoying the Brazilian sun. :)
