Millions of people online are loving two moms’ take on the highs and lows ― OK, mainly lows ― of swimsuit season.
Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, the creators behind the web series “#IMomSoHard,” released a video on Thursday in which they tackle the pressures of putting on a swimsuit and offer some encouraging advice to fellow mothers.
In the hilarious video, which has been viewed more than 5 million times in 24 hours, the moms laugh along with each other as they model “unreasonable” swimsuits with various cutouts and designs. Throughout the funny fashion show, they insist it’d be difficult to discipline their kids while wearing the swimsuits and demonstrate how impractical they are for picking up toys and chasing children at the beach.
All humor aside, Hensley and Smedley reminded their fans to forget about the pressures and put on the swimsuit they like and have fun.
“Nobody thinks that they look perfect ever,” Smedley said. “Let’s just all go to the beach.”
Hensley also explained how she’ll pass on that mentality to her daughter.
“I want my daughter to love her life and to love herself and she’s not going to do it because I tell her to do it,” she said. “She’s going to do it because I teach her to do it.”
