It seems the words Love Island aren’t far from many conversations here in the UK right now. The country has gone crazy for the reality show hosted by Caroline Flack where contestants have to fall in love with each other to remain in the game and ultimately win the show.
There will be some of you out there, myself included who haven’t even watched one episode of the show until now but have heard various conversations about it and for our ignorance have struggled to keep up with the latest heated discussion surrounding the contestants and their open relationships.
Although ignorance is bliss for me, as airing your sex life and showing the World your dirty laundry isn’t quite my thing, I couldn’t help myself from having a look at some of the swimwear worn by the girls. It just had to be done and I wondered what kind of shape they were in as I have heard some have gone through some strict exercise and diet plans to be show ready.
Amid the scorching Mallorca heat the contestants will very rarely wear much more than a pair of swimming trunks or a skimpy bikini, so image is going to be on their minds as they spend their weeks being scrutinised by the public. I am not sure if I would enjoy this much at all. As body conscious as most women are these girls must have some guts or be pretty confident with themselves to parade around like this. Fair play to them, feel good, look good I say.
As I mentioned in last weeks blog, confidence is one of the most important things to accessorise your bikini with. We all come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but throw your head up in the air, pull your shoulders back and walk the beach like you mean it and you pretty much have it nailed. Let’s take a look at some of the looks on this year’s show. I am not sure if these bikinis are the contestants own or if a stylist was involved but judge for yourself.
As I mentioned earlier I have not watched any of the episodes of Love Island or seen any of the contestants wearing swimwear on the show. I might have to watch a few episodes to see if the bikinis they have chosen are any different from the pictures I found online, but I can’t help it, I just want to get on the show and re-style the entire cast.
I can’t imagine being any of the parents at home having to see their kids wondering around in some of these outfits not to mention having to watch some of the ways they exploit themselves. It makes me utterly cringe, so I may just give this one a miss!
The swimwear said it all for me but I can’t help but want to make these girls behave in a more ladylike way and dress them to look beautiful instead of like strippers…
