5) Because You’ll Inspire Someone Else to Love (Or at Least, Like) Their Body.
Like countless fat girls before me, I never even thought of revealing my round belly on the beach before stumbling across this image of fashion blogger Gabi Gregg — fit, fly and fine in a two-piece. The more I see women my size, or closer to my size, wearing all sorts of clothes that are typically thought to be off-limits for fat women, the more normal it seems. Now, you have no obligation to inspire, but if you choose to go tummy out this summer, you undoubtedly will. (If you’re looking for a little fatspiration yourself, just search “fatkini” on Tumblr and behold the beauty!)
