“Why is it that someone else can dictate that you are not allowed to put something on your body that makes them uncomfortable?”
Such is one of just a few questions worth asking when it comes to what women choose to wear near bodies of water. YouTube star and plus-size fashion vlogger Loey Lane is fed up with nasty comments that degrade plus-size women for wearing bikinis. And she decided to do something about it.
Lane recently posted a video expertly shutting down the body-shamers. She poses important questions like, “Why [should] someone who is larger…have to cover more square inches of their body?” and why fellow beach-goers comfort level has anything to do with what she chooses to wear.
Lane also addresses the common, yet still absurd assumption that bigger women who show off their bodies are asking for feedback on how they look. She says, “Any woman, no matter her size, any man, any human being, they’re not looking for your approval or your praise of what they’re wearing.”
Lane’s bikini body haters have no right to tell her — or anyone else — whether or not they should sport a swimsuit. If you have a body and a two-piece, BAM! You’ve got yourself one beach-ready bikini bod.
