As a large woman, i had expected the worst.

But nothing happened. No one stared at me (except for one guy who was definitely checking me out and also gave me a head nod)

No one pointed and laughed. No one yelled "fatty, put some clothes on"

I got to swim and feel sexy, i felt really, really sexy in my bikini. I even posted a picture of my bikini body on Instagram and got a lot of likes and a comment "woah hot"

Maybe times really are changing? Either that or i got really lucky that there weren't any assholes at the beach today!

ETA my bikini- (i'm not afraid of trolls!) don't mind my squalor..

I wore a bikini today and nothing bad happened.
