Not every woman out there is Kim Kardashian.
Not every woman out there is comfortable in a bikini.
Take an Instagram user known as "Jazzmyne," for example.
BuzzFeed documented her journey via a video that starts with her picking out a bikini ... and ends wearing a two-piece on the beach for the first time. Ever.
Prior to the shopping excursion, Jazzmyne explained the motivation behind filming this experience, describing how she struggled to embrace her body between her junior year of high school and junior year of college.
Chronicle her story below and then join us in applauding how she has overcome her fears...
How the Troubles Began
She says she grew up in a town without many women who looked like her. She would always encourage plus-sized women to wear a bikini, but could not do so herself.
You Go, Girl!
Right? What else is there to say to these words?
She Bought To Bathing Suits to Start Her Journey
And she didn't totally despise the first.
She didn't love how it looked from the back.
But the Second Swimsuit?
HA! We love this reaction.
The Nerves Set In
But even if she loves that second bikini, she still was nervous about showing it off in public.
But Then She Just Went For It
And she slayed!
The Confidence Soon Grew
As it should have!
It Was Fate
Sexy, beautiful, proud fate.
She Even Went VERY Public with the Look
