It’s March right now. Before you know it, Instagram will be flooded with pool party and vacation pictures. Provided that I’m typing this while having another slice of pizza, the summer body I’ve been dreaming of is not going to happen. If you’re anything like me, here’s a quick lesson on how to get a beach body:
1. Put a bikini on your body.
You don’t have to be a size zero for that. Every body is a bikini body. But before you dive in, give these Bollywood-approved bikini sets a glance. Get your glasses on, play Havana on loud and sunscreen your way into a celeb-like vacay.

I clearly remember how I learned to dive some six years ago. My inspiration was Deepika’s badass dive from the deck of the ferry in Cocktail. Remember? She was also my #BeachBody inspiration that I’m nowhere close to. But that’s no reason to not wear this orange bikini.
