Fitness blogger hits back after being mum-shamed for posting bikini pic about her ‘cellulite dimples’ – The Sun

A FITNESS blogger has hit back at trolls who told her she shouldn’t wear revealing bikinis because she’s a mum.

Sia Cooper, 30, regularly shares workout snaps and healthy eating tips on her Instagram page.

Sia, from Mississipi, uploaded a throwback photo from her holiday to the Bahamas, showing off her sculpted behind.

The mum-of-two revealed she was hesitant about sharing it, as she was worried about her cellulite showing the skimpy bikini.

She captioned the snap, which racked up more than 20,000 likes: “I didn’t share it because I was so worried about my cellulite!

“I’m sharing it now because I want you ladies to feel empowered and to own your bodies. You are more than your dimples.

“Wear the damn swimsuit because life is too short! I love you all.”

Despite her positive message, Sia reveals she was trolled for sharing a snap of herself in the revealing two-piece.

She shared comments she received from people, telling her to ‘cover up‘.

One person told her: “To show your gains you don’t have to show your behind like that, you are a mother, think about what your children see your behind in yours posts in the future, unfollowed. [sic]”

Sia clapped back at her haters – sharing another photo of herself in the same bikini.

She said: “The other day, I had posted a photo of myself in this very same bikini and was told to cover up… because I am a mother. Cue the mom-shaming.

“Since when were moms supposed to hide their bodies? Since when were mothers no longer allowed to feel sexy? How do you think babies even got here in the first place?

“She went on to say that I should think about what my kids will think of my behind someday. You know what?

“I want my kids to see a mother who’s body positive. I want my kids to see a mother who’s confident in her own skin.

“Plus, they love my butt and use it as a bongo when I’m cooking dinner or awkwardly standing in line at the grocery store. Anyone else, no?”

She went on to say how important it is for her kids to see body positivity, and urged people to stop ‘mum shaming’ each other.

Sia added: “I would’ve given anything to have a body positive mama and I make sure that my kids see and feel this positivity everyday-not just with looks but with it all.

“Sometimes, all a mother needs is to truly FEEL herself. Let’s face it: motherhood can make us feel less than sexy.

“It leaves us drained, depressed, exhausted, and staring into a mirror, looking at a former shell of ourselves that we barely recognize anymore.

“And don’t get me started on our postpartum bodies… it can be harder to celebrate our bodies when they’re covered with stretches marks and loose skin.

“So mamas, put on your bikinis. You’ve earned it. Every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin without society’s judgy opinions.

“Let the mom-judging stop. Motherhood is already tough as it is. We are damned if we do, damned if we don’t so stay true to yourself.”

Her empowering message has been liked more than 30,000, as fellow mums praised her outlook.

One person commented: “Mom shaming sucks. I wish I had the confidence to rock a bikini like that. You do you!”

Another said: “I love this! I'm so tired of women shaming other women.

“Just know that those women are battling their own demons with body positivity.”

A third added: “Keep showing you and being true to you! Your kids will learn to love their bodies as is.”
