Fatkini – Photos of Fat Women in Bikinis are Getting Viral

Fatkini, or photo of a fat woman in her bikini, is becoming a fashion statement.

So who says having a supermodel body is the only way to be sexy? Introducing the fatkini.

“Real” women have posted photos of themselves in their bikinis in protest over society’s obsession with super-slim bodies.

Fashion website has made a gallery featuring various photos of upsize women in their bikinis in an attempt to send a message that “you don’t have to be a Victoria Secrets model to feel confident in your own skin.”

One of writers, Gabi Gregg who is an upsize woman herself, said that she opened the site’s fatkinis gallery to inspire other larger women to feel good about wearing bikinis.

“Our culture is so obsessed with having a ‘beach ready bod’, that the mere idea of someone my size in a swimsuit, let alone a bikini, is shocking to most,” she said.

“I know first-hand how inspiring it can be to see people with bodies that look similar to my own feeling confident and happy on the beach in something other than a Hawaiian-print skirted one piece,” she added.

    Beautiful women just oozing with self-confidence.  I’ve seen much smaller women who were so embarrassed by their bodies that they spent the whole time covering up and not having a good time.  Hooray for these ladies!
