Healthy + Fitness | Get That Body Bikini Ready!

Summer is always loads of fun, but the thought of stripping down into a bikini can be enough to break some of us out into a cold sweat. Winter might be cold, but at least we get to hide the bits we don’t like under layers and layers of clothing- right?! Being insecure is never any fun, but don’t cancel plans or avoid the beach because you don’t like how you look. Here are a few things you can do to get your body bikini ready.

Lose Weight and/or Tone Up

If you are conscious of your weight, losing a few pounds (if you need to) or just toning up is a good move. It sounds like an obvious one, but it’s the best place to start. You’ll improve your shape and feel firmer which is no bad thing when your body is on show. Focus on eating a clean diet and up your exercise routine. If you have a particular area that you’re conscious of, you could target your exercise plan to this. There are a good few weeks until the summer, so you have plenty of time to get into gear and see some fantastic results. Not only will you feel more confident but you’ll be fitter and healthier too which is always a good thing.

Consider a Cosmetic Procedure

Going under the knife can be a scary concept, but did you know there were tons of nonsurgical procedures out there which can achieve similar results? Unlike regular surgery you don’t need to go under general anaesthetic, there’s no risk of infection, and you don’t even need to take any time off work. In fact, you can be in and out of the clinic within a few hours! Laser liposuction and fat freezing are just two examples. While these aren’t designed for weight loss, they can help to sculpt and define your shape if you have stubborn fatty deposits. If you’re prepared to go under the knife, breast augmentation and tummy tuck procedures can be useful in helping you get the shape you want, but of course, weigh up all the pros and cons of surgery carefully.

Good swimwear is essential for confidence. We’re all different shapes and sizes, and do different cuts and pieces will look best on different people. Try lots of varieties on and see which looks best on your and what you feel comfortable in. For example, bigger busts will be more comfortable in underwired and supportive bikini tops as opposed to tie backs. If you don’t want to go too skimpy, a one piece swimsuit, tankini or swim dress are great alternatives. Plus you have a range of different coverups too, from sarongs to beach dresses, so you needn’t feel too exposed if you don’t want to.
