What is a Fatkini

This summer, women have launched the hashtag #fatkini to combat the fat-shaming and the grossophobie because on weight discrimination is still very much present in our society. Zoom on this movement of women who share their selfies in bikini and highlight their curves on social networks.

The Fatkini: a Swimsuit Plus Size

The fatkini (a contraction of the words fat and bikini) expression was invented by Gabi Gregg, native blogger on Detroit. In 2008, observing the lack of choice in the sector of jerseys large sizes, she decided to launch her own collection with the concept of the fatkini: a bikini trend and original for curvy women who wish to enhance their form.

Today, Ethnicityology offers shirts, one-piece, bikinis and tankinis from 38 to 56. Some models are also offered up to size 62. And level style, he is in for everyone! The timeless printed exotic geometric cuts through the total look pinup with the high waist bikini, everyone finds happiness.

The Movement #Fatkini on Social Networks

This summer, is instagram the hashtag #Fatkini was born. Women who exceed the 38 (Yes, women’s magazines and advertising are lying to you), have decided to take a photo in a bikini and highlight their curves on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #Fatkini.

This movement was initiated in England and in the United States and could spread rapidly to other countries. What for? Because it is high time to end on the beaches and pool complexes. Choose the swimsuit and the held Beach you want doesn’t have to look like a test of the fighter when you have 46 and wear a bikini must above all be a pleasure rather than a trial.

Break Free From the Dictates of Thinness

A flat stomach in 10 lessons, how hide its rolls, to express diet before the summer… the media, women’s magazines and advertising are still champions for bodily and aesthetic standards. This diktat of thinness is ubiquitous in the universe of the swimwear where all models display a size 36 in their superb bikini on the edge of a turquoise sea.

Besides, photo galleries of female swimsuits on Guide-pool expose templates that match the beauty standards currently imposed by fashion. An image of the female body far from reality since the majority of the French door of 40 and 42.

Then to when swimwear collections presented with models of all sizes and all body types? My call to brands is launched!
