Fans were amazed to see Vanessa's confidence in the bikini. One of the fans took to a Reddit thread to say, "I mean, she has a lot more confidence than I do. I'm about 200 lbs and I wouldn't do it. I hate my body. I admire how much she loves herself." Another wrote, "Doesn't feel like confidence. Feels more like she just learned to tune out the negative commentary from the public in order to live day to day. Just my opinion." "She's got way more courage than I. I won't even wear shorts," said another fan. 

Vanessa further shared how scared she was to get in the water. She said, "Being this big, you will not be able to, like, stand up or start swimming real quickly, or get away from anything." She tried to enter the water while balancing her body to not fall. Vanessa said in the confessional, "We got all this fat. There are folds and rolls."

Meghan hesitated in her body while Vanessa rocked the string bikini

Vanessa, Meghan and Tina hit the beach to enjoy some time watching the waves. While Vanessa was enjoying her bikini look, Meghan got concerned all of sudden thinking of how she looked. Instead of wearing the bikini, she had her bathing suit on. Tina asked Meghan to remove her black dress and show off the bathing suit she was wearing inside it. She said, "you have a cute bathing suit on under there." To this, Meghan seemed to have gotten triggered. She said, "cute bathing suit? It's grandma." She then removed her black dress and showed off the floral suit. 

Seeing Meghan act all hesitant and not uncomfortable, Vanessa said, "let me tell you, something baby, it's taken a lot for me to show up with nothing but my bikini on." Vanessa further said to Meghan, "I understand your struggle, and that bothers me to my core." Meghan, who was not comfortable talking about her body said, 'I get anxiety just talking about this." Meghan further saw other girls on the beaches roaming around freely in their bikinis without the fear of getting judged. Seeing this, she said, "I don't feel I belong here."
