We think we've mentioned enough times that Summer is our favourite season of all time; and after a year of being stuck in our homes it makes sense that we’d want to get out and experience life to the fullest. That being said, we are no strangers to some of the anxieties that this season may bring.
We understand that there is so much pressure during this period to have the perfect beach/bikini body, take the perfect photo for instagram and live up to any and all expectations during the summer. It can be A LOT to handle (especially after a year inside).
As you all know, 437 was created to ensure that everybody and any body felt comfortable, supported and sexy wearing one of our swimsuits. To learn more about our staple collection, click here.
Though you might have the perfect swimsuit, we believe that it is how you feel on the inside that matters the most. To help you along your Summer Self-Love journey, we have compiled a small summer love guide to carry you through this season.
Focus on nourishing your body. Another hard tip here, we know. A lot of what we see online tells us that in order to be happy we need to be X weight and look like Y. A reminder that happiness does not come from a scale. Focus on giving yourself the nourishment and hydration you need. Enjoy everything whether that be a big bowl of pasta, wine OR a salad.
Spend time with people who make you feel good. Sometimes we can get a little too in our heads about our bodies. We’ve noticed that spending time with people who love us for us and not how we look is the best way to remind ourselves that we have much more to offer than our looks.
Compliment yourself. It’s a little awkward at first, but it’s very effective and (necessary). Standing in front of a mirror, looking yourself in the eyes and complimenting yourself makes a massive difference. You may not believe it in that moment, but we promise you’ll love it over time.
Wear things that make you feel good. We are suckers for a good 437 staple swimsuit. Whether you prefer something a little less coverage like the Sanders or classic like the Kenzie or Aubrey sets, we have something that is sure to make you feel sexy and confident on the beach.
Get to know yourself better. The summer is the perfect time to connect with yourself and figure out what you like and don’t like. If this summer is not the summer you feel like being on the go, don’t put pressure on yourself. Take time to be slow, to be kind and to be gentle. Listen to your body and what it needs.
The journey to self-love is not an easy or linear one. Here at 437, we want to remind you all that you are so much more than how you look or what you do. This summer, we want you to focus on taking care of yourself, having shameless fun and making space to grow.
Enjoy your summer babe! xx
