Why It Sucks to be the “Average Sized Girl”

Ashley from Two Peas in a Prada shares her struggles with being an "average sized" girl.

I talk about body positivity a lot. But today, I’m going to keep it real with you. Sometimes it really just sucks to be “average.” I’m no waif, but I’m not plus sized. I’m strong AF, but I’m not fit. I’m not thin, I’m not fat… I don’t know what I am. But I really hate that I feel like I have to give myself a label.

High Waisted Bikini

high waisted

I am so excited to be sharing another swim post with you guys. You amazing comments and support on the last one were so amazing! It’s so nice to hear all of your amazing comments, and it makes me feel so much better to hear that I’m not the only one with certain insecurities when it comes to swimsuits. I was nervous when I ordered this high waisted bikini from Zappos. But, as it turns out, I was glad I took the risk.

How to Break out of a Negativity Rut

Negativity. It’s the thing I hate the most about myself. I finally opened up about my struggles with anxiety in this Instagram post last week. I didn’t plan on sharing it, I wanted to skip that morning’s post all together actually. But when I was laying in bed unable to sleep, I just started writing, and it all kind of came out. The outpouring of kind messages and texts was so overwhelming. Anxiety is such a common thing people struggle with yet it seems so taboo to talk about. For me, anxiety and negativity go hand in hand.
