It’s maddening how many times it has to be said, but all bodies are indeed bikini bodies. All bodies are “beach ready”.

Even in 2021, with the body positivity movement having made such progress, the diet and fashion industry (or people you follow on Instagram) continue to push the message that we all need to look a certain way when we’re heading out to relax in the sun. Geez. It’s exhausting, isn’t it? We’re pushing back.

On June 27th, we’ll be hitting The BodCon TALKS: Beach Bodies event to celebrate all bodies. Join a variety of leaders in this space for a one-day Virtual Pool Party and Discussion that will challenge “bikini body” rhetoric, which has gained a sick kind of momentum since the onset of the pandemic, with “jokes” about gaining weight shared by the millions. 

The event will be headlined by Canadian TikTok superstar Alicia McCarvell, who will speak about her journey with self love, curve model and body positive influencer Sydney Bell, Sports Illustrated Curve Model Gabriella Halikas, and others.

Having attended BodCon events in the past, we’re certain this will be a fun afternoon that will uplift and inspire. We’re also extremely curious to experience a “virtual poolside deck”. The BodCon TALKS: Beach Bodies Virtual Pool Party is happening Sunday, June 27, 2021 at 2PM ET. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here
