Alright guys, my body shape is a mix between these two girls. I didn't used to feel insecure about it until recently. I've had multiple people tell me that I'm fat and that I should cover myself up until I lose all the weight I'm carrying. I never thought of myself as fat, but I keep getting the faces and comments directed towards my weight. Is this true, am I fat, should I avoid bikinis and shorts this summer or is it okay for me to wear them? Be honest, thanks!

Both of those bodies would be fine in shorts and/or bikinis. Those body types will appeal to a LOT of guys. The only ones that will make a fuss about it will be the people that are really insecure about themselves, regardless of their own personal size.
Advertising in society is designed to make people ashamed of their body shape. It's by design. Doesn't matter how you look, there will be advertising telling you to make it look different. People purchase a lot more things if they are unhappy with themselves. People that are content and happy make crappy customers. So advertising is just hammering at people that they shouldn't be happy with the shape they are. Ignore it. Guys that listen to themselves and not to commercials will love your shape if you fall between those two pictures.0
