DM - Real women have posted images of themselves in their swimwear for a ‘fatkini’ gallery as a retaliation against society’s obsession with super-slim summer bodies. In an age where Victoria’s Secret models are viewed as an ideal, 31 women sent in their images to prove otherwise. Gabi Gregg, a writer for, posted a request for the images, to inspire women with similar bodies as her own (a U.S. size 18) to feel good about wearing a bikini.

Real women?  Is that what feminism has come to?  Saying anyone who is hot and looks good in a bikini is fake?  Umm newsflash ladies the only thing “real” about you is the “real” chance your heart is going to explode from your disgusting obesity. That sound you hear is the “real” sound of the metal supports of your beach chair snapping in half when your fat ass plops down in it.   But yeah if heart disease and diabetes are what you want kids to aspire to instead of eating healthy and working hard in the gym then keep posting your fatkini pics. Seriously, when did we stop striving for perfection? It’s offensive. I’m not gonna pretend I’m a beacon of physical fitness, but you don’t see me Instagramming my fat gut either. Because the day I do that is the day I totally give up and just hope society decides to find fat people desirable. No thanks.
