Yahoo!

In a sponsored Instagram post, Bidot shared a photo of herself in a bright pink and blue floral print tankini, writing that she feels “alive and ready to take on the day” after a workout she completed prior to snapping the pic.

“This @Targetstyle suit was the perfect piece to wear,” she wrote in the post, which had garnered 13,000 likes as of Friday morning. “I was able to stay cool and the cut of the suit kept everything in place. Not to mention, I was able to run straight into the water after.”

“Finding your favorite style suit is important, and we’re all about offering flattering fit and cut options to help guests feel confident in their swimsuits,” Target wrote. “After all, you look your best when you feel your best!”
