Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and we know you wanna head to the closest possible water world. Whether you’ll be playing on the beach or pool-side sunning, you’re probably wondering what to wear. We think the distinction of size "others" people and marginalizes fatness, which is not fair. Fat-kini, skini-kini, whatever-kini —love your body and dress it in the lycra style that suits you best! All bodies and all kinis are created equal. So grab your sunscreen, a good book, and go get fierce in the sunshine. Here are some of our favorite water friendly fashions for you mer-people out there:
