LET’S MAKE THIS THE SUMMER OF BODY POSITIVITY

How to get a beach body? Put on a suit you love and hit the sand. Here, seven beauties show us how it’s done—and share some brilliant advice about body positivity.

This summer, let’s reclaim the joy of walking onto the beach—or deck or dock—removing your cover-up and feeling like a million bucks. (Blasting Lizzo’s “Juice” while doing so is optional, but highly recommended.)

Yes, a swimsuit that fits like a dream can go a long way toward full-body empowerment, but that’s only part of the solution. It’s hard for the average non-supermodel to feel confident in swimwear—most of the images of swimsuit-clad women we see online and in the media represent a very narrow slice of womankind. But research shows that looking at imagery that more closely resembles one’s own body type can improve mood and self esteem, and reduce the likelihood  you’ll compare yourself—often unfavourably—with the woman in the photo.
