17 Women of All Shapes, Sizes and Ages Wearing Bikinis, Swimsuits and Cover Ups

17 Women of All Shapes, Sizes and Ages Wearing Bikinis, Swimsuits and Cover Ups

Hopefully you saw my post from last Monday – the #iwillwearwhatilike link up – where I talked about how women of any age can wear whatever they want when it comes to beachwear and swimwear?

That they can choose to wear bikinis, swimsuits or completely cover up if they so wish?

If you didn’t, please go check it out now(!) – so many wonderful women women decided to show us what their preferred style was for the beach and the pool. And as I always feature four or five of my faves the following week, I knew I had to do this again, but how do you choose just a few when everyone was so fabulous?

Easy – dedicate a whole post to them. I am absolutely stoked to be able to bring you a whole post entirely devoted to 17 women of all shapes, sizes and ages wearing bikinis, swimsuits and cover ups… their beachwear of choice, in other words.

WE THOUGHT WE’D HAD ENOUGH OF BEING TOLD NOT TO WEAR BIKINIS, BUT IT SEEMS IT’S NOW THE TURN OF THE BURKINI TO ACTUALLY BE BANNED IN ONE PART OF THE WORLD.

This is a timely post it seems – we thought we’d had enough of being told not to wear bikinis, but it’s now the turn of the burkini to actually be banned in one part of the world. We’re told to cover ourselves up, we’re told to uncover ourselves. We simply cannot win. There’s only one thing to do:

Wear whatever you damn well like, just like these ladies have. As I always say, life’s too short not to be dressing without the fear of “what with others think”.

Enjoy these fantastic ladies – some have been very brave to put themselves out there and share their swimwear with you so pleeeeease click through to their blogs or Instagram accounts! Give them a follow, a like or drop them a lovely comment, it’s so easy to make someone’s day 🙂

    Fabulous post! I love the reminder that women come in all shapes and sizes and we're ALL beautiful. Makes me want to go out and rock a bikini despite my "mommy tummy".

    Right on Catherine! Right on!! Fist pumps, high fives, peace signs, and okey dokey fingers! Oh, throw in a big bear hug too. I love this post. I love all the fellow women for being proud in whatever swimwear they choose. Here's to women and here's to wearing what we want!

    Thanks for the feature! I am elated.

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

    What a beautiful way to start a new week, and a new month (close enough), Catherine, thank you so so so much for including my picture. I've been going through so much soul searching in the past 6 months because of all the physical changes I'm experiencing thanks to medications, your post is such a timely blessing, and I love you for highlighting what many attempt to cloack xoxo

    Fantastic post Catherine! We need more like this on the internet. What I noticed in these photos first and foremost was the smiles. Great stuff xx

    This was a great post, Catherine and a big shout out to all those beautiful bloggers who aren't afraid to show off their actual, non-airbrushed bodies. How very inspiring. I'm glad you did a special post just featuring them. Thank you. – Amy

    Thanks for featuring the photo of me and my swimming buddy Kate. Was my link a bit dodgy? Sorry fo that, but glad you included a couple of 58 year olds who aren't afraid to show up in their swimwear x

    Wonderful Post Catherine!
    Some of my favourite ladies are here, and they look stunning.
    Not because they have media-perfect bodies, but because they have THE perfect body…their own!
    Inspirational stuff.

    Thank you so much for adding me to your swim round up this week! It's such an honor to be included amongst all of these fabulously confident, stylish real women! I have been a huge follower of your "I will wear what I like" link up here and on Instagram – and this one is one of my favorites! I think this campaign is so important to women of all ages, to toss the media out the door and wear whatever we please!

    Oh thank you so much for squeezing me in Catherine. I think this is just so important, we need combat all the fake bodies and airbrushing and remind people what proper women look like! xxx
