Apparently feeling confident in a bikini is much simpler than we all think.

Curvy model and Instagram influencer Isabella Forget has it down pat, which is why she’s constantly posting swimsuit snaps in which she looks anything but insecure.


In her latest bikini post, the Canadian stunner hides nothing in a blue, green, and white floral two-piece. In the photo’s caption, she reveals the secret to feeling as confident in a bikini as she does.

She starts with the question she’s frequently asked, “People: How can you be so confident in a bikini?” And she answers, “Me: Easy … you put on a bikini and you you don’t give a shit about what others may think…” We’ve tried that. It doesn’t work. But there’s more to Forget’s method. Two more steps, in fact. “I avoid eye contact and I pretend I am alone and that I am a queen of an amazing Island. Me and my belly are just unapologetic .”

While it’s nothing scientific or groundbreaking, it works for her. And we’ll try anything to stop holding our stomachs on the beach and comparing ourselves to “thinner” women by the pool. So, we will absolutely be trying this at home. And so will her 144k fans. “I am so down with that … you are doing the DAMN thing. ,” wrote one follower.

Others cannot understand why she needs a reminder. “Who in the holy F*** asked YOU how YOU feel so confident in a bikini?!?! Because you don’t look like a rail?! You are a GD amazonian goddess! A vision. Carved out of marble! My new favorite picture!!”

Of course, countless women have insecurities when it comes to bikinis. And she’s not the only bikini modeling “goddess” who feels this way. For Kate Upton, no amount of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue covers will make her completely confident in a bikini. “I’m still not confident in a bathing suit!” she once told Yahoo! Style.

Maybe she should try Forget’s formula.
