Cassie Delivered On Her Promise And Posted A Pic In The Revealing Bathing Suit She Almost Sent Back

You know what you believe, you talk about what you believe, but do you REALLY practice what you preach?

Cassie talks about #SuitYourself, and she’s done it in the past, but one new bathing suit had her being a big old hypocrite. It was the most revealing suit she’s ever owned…and she was about to send it back because it showed too much of the area she was most self-conscious about.

She realized what she was doing, and it’s time to put her money where her mouth is…and she promised to do a #SuitYourself picture in it.

And she delivered…and in the process, got rid of a WHOLE bunch of baggage and it was FREEING. And here’s what she realized:

UNAPOLOGETIC. 

This is the most revealing bikini I’ve EVER owned that I talked about on The Bert Show the other day. I promised I’d post a #SuitYourself pic in it, and as I was picking these, I already started apologizing in my head for the flaws I knew people would be judging me for…the ones I was highlighting in my head (Am I too absurdly serious? Why is my face like that? I’m so burned! Who do I think I am with those poses, Ashley Graham? Oh God, look at that…) and then I decided IDGAF. I don’t HAVE these superficial beauty flaws people arbitrarily decide are problems. 

This is MY body and I’m not gonna apologize for it. This body has carried me through 31 years on this planet – it’s gotten me through hope and heartache, through near death sickness and great health, triumphs and failures. It’s taken me to places around the world, has taken me on adventures big and small, and has been my HOME for my entire life. 

For some of you, your bodies literally grew LIFE. For others, your bodies have carried you through marathons (running AND pizza bingeing AND Netflix). Our bodies have loved, have lost, have helped others, have let us feel total happiness and held strong through grief, and have been there every step of the way. They’re the only thing we’re born with and that we can say is truly OURS. 
Every curve, line, scar, freckle – it tells a story of a life filled with richness. Why are we so ashamed of them for not looking some specific homogenous way that some randos decided was “good.” What a bunch of bulls***t. It’s exhausting and I’m over it. 

Here I am, in my unfiltered, unphotoshopped, unedited jigglypuff glory and you can take it or you can #effyourbodystandards because I’m not playing that game anymore. I’m living my life to the fullest and I’m thankful that my body is taking my mind along for the ride.
