Local blogger debunks myths about larger women wearing bikinis

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) What happens when you are not pencil thin but you wear a bikini to the beach anyway?  Not much, one West Michigan woman recently found out.

Jenny Trout did end up in the national spot light over her recent romp on the sand in a beautiful floral two-piece, and she shares her story with eightWest. Jenny Trout has her own blog where she talks about being a large woman, how this experience changed her as well as other experiences in her life.

The “bikini” experiment started as a result of her blog. She says one thing larger women worry about is wearing a bathing suit. She says she went online to find the swim suit, she says some people call them “fat-kinis” but says when she put it on she loved how she looked.
