the truth in my opinion- it really depends on the model.
I've seen some really tiny women modelling for bikini companies that rock the tiny frame and still have a booty and smaller curves, other times i've seen models that resemble stick insects and worry me that they're giving people the wrong impression about what they do to keep skinny. I usually have a hard time trying to pick a bikini online purely because i don't look like those models advertising the product. How will i know if that top or bottom will suit my frame? i usually can guess it pretty well but only because i'm a shopaholic (thank goodness!) but others may have this issue and not be able to resolve it.
Over the years that i've been blogging and have had instagram i've noticed a change, while some companies prefer slender models to represent them, more and more businesses are going with healthy clean eating lifestyle advocates to represent them. I really think there's a difference between skinny models and slender women who are thin because they take care of their bodies.
Look at Alexis Ren - she works god damn hard to look the way she does, she was gifted with fantastic genes and she owned them! I love seeing her photos around because she puts out such a positive vibe about herself. She is a beautiful slender model.
Jenah Yamamoto is another one of my favourites - she's so tiny but looks mega healthy in my eyes because she's not just skin and bones - you can see that girls 6 pack and muscle def all the time!
So many more companies are donating to charities and foundations to help young girls out there and i love that!
The one thing i do get sick of - is seeing the same handful of models in EVERYONES feed. It's so annoying! i don't follow them for a reason but yet they're all through the swimwear industry.
