Women Wear Matching Bikinis To Make Stand Against Body Shaming

Women Wear Matching Bikinis To Make Stand Against Body Shaming

Two Instagram influencers have posed for pictures wearing the same bikinis to make powerful points on body shaming.

Dani Austin and Sarah Tripp met recently on the social media platform, and have each shared a poignant message on embracing your shape and knowing that you're so much more than your dress sizes.

Both have different-shaped (and equally as beautiful) figures, Dani and Sarah have both experienced body-shaming.

"Alright sassy mamas, let's get real about body shaming!This is my girl @sassyredlipstick," shared Dani. "She is absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite people to follow!"

Alright sassy mamas, let's get real about body shaming! :no_entry_sign:This is my girl @sassyredlipstick. She is absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite people to follow! :hearts:I had a chance to hang with Sarah and her husband @tripp in Dallas last week. :dancers:‍♀️Because of her beautiful curvy figure, Sarah tells me that she receives so many mean comments that she's "overweight", "unhealthy", or "a bad role model". :triumph:It's so rude and so ridiculous! I honestly can't think of anyone who's a better role model than Sarah. Her only goal is to help us ladies feel confident, SASSY, and love our bodies no matter the size! :dancer:She's so sweet, positive, and empowering and truly cares about each and every one of her followers. :cupid:Plus, that girl has KILLER style. She's so much more than her body... and so am I! I've also received hurtful comments about my body over the years on social media. People telling me to "eat a sandwich" or saying I look "unhealthy." I'm sure we've all been hurt by something that was said about us or maybe we have a little voice inside our heads telling us we aren't pretty, smart, or successful enough. Sarah and I believe that we are ALL so much more than what you see on the outside and the truth is, we don't need the approval of others to find our self worth. The ultimate form of girl power is self-confidence. :sparkles:And even though that's always a work in progress for most, it's one of my top goals. Let's all remember to love ourselves because empowered women empower women. Body shaming is never okay - let's remember that love and kindness are never wasted!

The influencer explained that her friend has unfairly been body shamed over her curvy figure.

She continued: "Sarah tells me that she receives so many mean comments that she's "overweight", "unhealthy", or "a bad role model". It's so rude and so ridiculous! I honestly can't think of anyone who's a better role model than Sarah.

"Her only goal is to help us ladies feel confident, SASSY, and love our bodies no matter the size!"

Again pointing out that women are so more than their bodies, she continued: "She's so sweet, positive, and empowering and truly cares about each and every one of her followers. Plus, that girl has KILLER style."

BODY SHAMING IS NOT OKAY!! :no_entry_sign::no_good:‍♀️ it's time for a couple of sassy gals to get real with you. :kiss: this is my friend @daniaustin. she's a beautiful size 0 and one of my favorite ladies to follow here on IG. because of her naturally thin figure she tells me she often sees comments like "she's anorexic", "looks like she needs to eat", "look at those chicken legs", etc. how sad is that?! one thing i know is that this beautiful woman is strong, healthy, and more importantly... much more than her body! Dani is an incredible female entrepreneur. she has the kindest heart and is one of the most genuine bloggers i know. she and her husband @jordanjramirez have a wonderfully supportive relationship. she is so strong yet vulnerable, opening up freely about her faith, her trials, and her real life offline. :two_hearts: i've been shamed this same way for years, but on the other end of the scale. strangers online are constantly telling me i'm "overweight", or "unhealthy", or "a terrible role model" because of my size. but i know better. because i know this size 12 body of mine is curvy fit! :muscle: i know that these bootylicious curves makes me sexy, strong, and stylish! i also know that my self-worth does not depend on the size of my jeans or what other people say about me. :peach::sparkling_heart: please remember, body shaming is never okay!! and we should all speak kind words to each other online and in real life. your words have power and meaning. and we could all benefit from spreading a little more love and positivity. :kissing_heart: click the link in my bio to read my blog post all about body shaming and see all our matchy :bikini: pics! // our pink striped bikini comes in sizes xxs-xxl and it's under $50! shop our swim with the shop tab on my site or download the @liketoknow.it app for free! http://liketk.it/2zZis #liketkit #LTKcurves #LTKswim #LTKunder50 #aeriereal #everyBODYisbeautiful #loveanybody #curvyblogger #sassyredlipstick #pinkbikini #aerieswim

After heaping on the praise for her friend, the Instagram influencer drew on her own experience to point out: "She's so much more than her body... and so am I! I've also received hurtful comments about my body over the years on social media.

"People telling me to "eat a sandwich" or saying I look "unhealthy." I'm sure we've all been hurt by something that was said about us or maybe we have a little voice inside our heads telling us we aren't pretty, smart, or successful enough.

"Sarah and I believe that we are ALL so much more than what you see on the outside and the truth is, we don't need the approval of others to find our self worth. The ultimate form of girl power is self-confidence.

"And even though that's always a work in progress for most, it's one of my top goals.

"Let's all remember to love ourselves because empowered women empower women. Body shaming is never okay - let's remember that love and kindness are never wasted!"

Sarah shared the same picture to her own Instagram grid, flipping around Dani's comments to share her own perspective on the matter.

"I know that these bootylicious curves makes me sexy, strong, and stylish! I also know that my self-worth does not depend on the size of my jeans or what other people say about me," she declared, continuing: "Please remember, body shaming is never okay!! and we should all speak kind words to each other online and in real life.

"Your words have power and meaning. and we could all benefit from spreading a little more love and positivity."

If there's one message you take away from social media today, make it this one.
