How many times have you tried on a piece of clothing a size up from your ‘usual’ … and didn’t want to buy it simply because you didn’t like that the tag wasn’t what you wanted it to say?
On the flip side, have you ever cheered for joy in a change room upon finding your body being able to fit into an article of clothing that’s smaller than your ‘usual’ size?
I know I’m personally guilty of both of these reactions.
Society has us so obsessed with our SIZE. Why are we allowing a number on the back of a tag affect us so much? After all, YOU are so much more than just a number.
Two years ago, I got an opportunity to reassess and really focus on me again. I began investing in higher quality fashionable pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories – decorating my outside in an effort to uplift my inside. The more ‘grey’ I felt, the more dressed up I would get, sticking to that old adage of ‘fake it ‘til I make it’ – if I LOOKED happy and put-together then I’d eventually FEEL that way too. And it totally worked!
Over the last few months of blogging, taking photos of myself all dolled up, researching new designers, writing about trends and ‘how-to’s’, reading and sharing body positive messages and surrounding myself with positive people who actively strive to challenge the status quo — to re-imagine diverse bodies challenging dominant beauty and body ideas…..has shifted and lifted my self image. And for the first time in my life I can confidently say: I’m hella sexy! 🙂
I had the delight of meeting the lovely Miss Tierra Sedgemore, creator of Size Sexy earlier this month. And am thrilled to be one of the Bloggers she connected with to help spread this message of self-love, acceptance and body confidence.
Show the world that you embrace and love every curve of your body because you are #sizesexy in one of these fabulous cotton/Lycra blend v-neck tees.
These shirts come in several colours: Black, Cobalt Blue, Soft Baby Pink and Red. At the moment they go up to XXL, but Tierra is working on expanding the sizing and colour options in 2015 🙂
