Sam revisits his 2020 conversation with comedian and Nailed It! host Nicole Byer on her coffee table book: #VeryFat#VeryBrave: The Fat Girl's Guide to Being #Brave and Not a Dejected, Melancholy, Down-in-the-Dumps Weeping Fat Girl in a Bikini. They talk about home goods, drunken bravery, and learning to love yourself.
I made that call and it was the best call I ever made! These girls (Melanie Albinio and Marla Kirby) were stellar. They helped show me how to make muscle and eat in a way that would promote growth. They helped me through my mental barriers and made me feel valued in a way no other coach had.
My first competition I competed without my tummy tuck. I decided to do a natural show with a one piece bathing suit, and I still had skin issues - double sided tape was my best friend, not the bikini bite.
This is one legit and effective hack on how to look sexier on your bikini shots! Eating dinner early before your beach trip and shooting photos before breakfast will create an illusion of a flat stomach. Proven and effective especially for skinny-fat girls like me!

We've tested Form + Fold and can attest to just how supportive its DD+ bikini tops are. We love the brand's sparkly Lurex sets, but if you want a 'skimpier' alternative shop this underwired triangle style instead.
If you were lamenting the fact you 'can't wear' 2022's strappy swimwear trend, ASOS might just have saved your summer. This bikini top provides full coverage (up to a cup size G) but the asymmetric fit and cut-out detail show off some skin.
We know what you're thinking: I'll certainly be a 'free spirit' (cue nip slips) when wearing that skimpy bikini top. Fret not, C-G cup busts: this ruched bandeau comes with detachable adjustable straps that you can wear over-the-shoulder or cross-back.
Monowire bikinis are a genius invention for big busts. These designs provide adequate support without looking too cumbersome or frumpy. We love the plunging front and high-apex cups on Boux Avenue's best-selling Ibiza style.
Yes, DD+ girls can wear triangle bikinis! Just make sure the cups are roomy enough (so you don't have to deal with unwanted nip slips) and the straps are thick enough to prevent bounce. Peek & Beau scalloped design has removable padding, too, for extra practical points.
As your thighs jiggle and your belly wobbles, there will be people who don't understand you. They just don't get it. They cannot fathom that anyone, let alone a fat girl, can be so free. They will stare and my god will you feel their glares. They'll look at you eating, swimming, laughing and dancing. To them, you truly are an anomaly. You stand out, even if you don't particularly want to. Maybe you feel a bit insecure, but that's okay. Unfortunately, the world didn't prepare for the fat girl revolution, but that's none of your business. It isn't down to you to explain yourself, to conform, to play the part someone else assigned to you, so don't you dare give in. They might even whisper or point and maybe they'll laugh but in those moments, please remember who you are. Your weight does not define you and your size is the most irrelevant thing about you. You're interesting. You have opinions and a voice and you're a damn good person. You're talented, and maybe you don't even know why yet but I hope you know your worth. You're worth a thousand of those people who put you down so hold your head up. Hold your head high. Be kind to yourself, even when other's aren't and I hope right now, you're surrounded by people who make you feel like the Queen you are and if not, I am with you. In solidarity I have your back. To the fat girl in the bikini, you look incredible and if you don't feel that way, you still are. The shame you feel isn't yours to carry anymore and the pain you feel isn't yours to hold. It's heavy isn't it. Let it go. I won't say you're brave, because you're not. There is nothing brave about wearing a bikini in a larger body. But you are courageous. You have courage to keep fucking going when your body is up for debate. I hope you never shrink yourself for other people. Don't disappear and do not be quiet. Be loud and proud and remain in your power. Do not apologise for your fatness, for your confidence, for your life. Do not say sorry that you aren't smaller, thinner, lighter. You are you right now and that's it. Period. You are worthy of love, kindness and respect regardless of how many rolls are hanging out of your bikini. Your tummy looks cute btw. So fuck it and fuck them. Life is for living and it is far too shoot not to wear the bikini, so wear it with pride.
To the fat girl in the bikini, thank you. Thank you for being a fresh of breath air when I find it hard to breathe. Thank you for making me feel seen. You're beautiful and not because you're fat, but because you just are.

I remember once being in a fitting room in a lovely store. Trying on dresses, cute tops... just generally having a gay old time on my lonesome. Until I heard a young girl in the next fitting room over. Her mother was telling her they were both the kind of women who would need to wear Spanx so their fat parts wouldn't stick out. The kid was trying on a junior prom dress. She was happy. Until she wasn't. I wish she could have heard this mom's message about positive body image that day. Maybe it would have helped both her and her mom come to the same conclusion that Brittney Johnson had while bikini shopping with her daughter; parents act as mirrors. And it's up to us to decide what we want that mirror to reflect back on our kids, perhaps especially our daughters.
Brittney Johnson of Missouri had taken her daughter to her local Target to try on bathing suits. Her little girl had helped her choose 11 suits, and the two of them headed to the fitting room to try them on. Johnson was snapping selfies and sending them to friends for feedback, the typical "Yes or No" we all probably do. When she noticed her little girl was trying on a cheetah print bikini top. She waited for her daughter to see herself in the mirror... and this is what the little girl said, according to Johnson's post on Facebook:
Johnson's post on Facebook has since gone viral. It's been shared more than 159,000 times and sits at 306,000 likes. She tapped into an important message, for women who were raised by mothers with poor body images and for mothers unconsciously raising their daughters the same way. Johnson understand that she won't be able to shield her daughter from negative advertising that perpetuates an unhealthy body obsession. But she plans to combat all of that outward influence with three little words: "Be an example."
The next year a friend convinces me to wear a bikini top to the pool one day. She and I are the only ones in the cabin when she gives it to me to try on. I step into a corner and turn around. Look at the size.
I still remember the number on the scale of every first day of camp. The relief I felt the year a severe ear infection kept me from going in the water. When the person passing out camp shirts looked at a group of us and decided we would all be fine with the same size and I knew immediately that I would never wear mine. The loneliness that always snuck up on me. 2b1af7f3a8
