London Fitness Studios to Help You Feel Bikini Confident

These past few weeks we have really started to feel the pressure to be ‘bikini ready’ and because it’s been a lot warmer, women all around the world go into panic mode. Green juices sell out and pilates classes are full again. But the truth is, it’s not about your size or shape, but about how comfortable you are in your own body.

Firstly lets remember that wearing a bikini is subjective and how you decide to wear yours is entirely your choice. We know the women in Brazil think the smaller the better whilst in Europe it’s all about going topless, but reality is it comes down to you and what you are comfortable with. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes and no two are the same so understand that the bikini that is right for your friend may not be the right one for you. 

Our team at Bikini Culture has rounded-up 5 of our favourite fitness secrets in London that we believe will make you feel healthy and more confident in your new bikini (or one piece)
