As easter rolls around, everyone’s gonna be getting some time off and what’s better than relaxing stylishly by the pool. Thus, here are nine tips to getting that bikini bod:

1. Stick to what you eat:

You don’t need to be or do anything different to fit into a bikini. So if you like to indulge in a few sweets every now and again, then by all means do so.  And if you want to switch things up, do it because you truly want to, not because you can’t fit into a bikini if you don’t, because that’s not true.

2. Pick out a sexy bikini:

It doesn't have to be the over exposed, barely there bikinis also. Instead shop around for something that makes you feel excited and confident while wearing it.

3. Stop measuring up:

Ignore what you see on TV and in magazines and their unrealistic ideas of what any woman in a bikini should and must look like. The truth is those guys have an army of nutritionists and beauticians. Also, no one expects you to look like a Victoria Secret model on the runway.  They want to see you in a bikini because they love you.

4. Exercise because it keeps you fit:

Women are consistently reminded that they have problem areas while men never get such queries. Exercise is designed to make you feel good and have strength, so you don't pant after you've only been swimming for three minutes, which is a good things! Stop punishing yourself for being a woman, instead, accept the parts of you that you don’t like. Love yourself!

5. Get your cheerleader to tag along:

You know, the one with buckets of body confidence who makes you feel like a supermodel just by being around her because she's that supportive and fearless. Sometimes it even helps to bring a friend with a similar body type to yours who might be more accepting of her body than you currently are with yours because you'll be able to see her own confidence and hopefully, it'll rub off on you.

6. Drink lots of water because it's fun:

Don't drink water like you set out to not become a diseased flesh bag. Drink it because you're a human being who shouldn't be dehydrated because it's very unhealthy.

7. Look back in time:

No matter how you felt about yourself as a child, you would never, talk down to a child. Also, look how happy you were then! How crazy adorable is that child? You are still as adorable now!

8. Know you already have a bikini body:

You are a human being with a body that can fit into a bikini so you already have a bikini body. No one should see a woman and think she definitely shouldn’t be wearing a bathing suit.

9. Know that there’s more to you than body:

You're also a person who loves life and wants to make memories and deserves to be able to enjoy wearing a bikini without thinking about her thighs touching too often or if her stomach bulges.
