BODY POSITIVE: This Is Me.


I wanted to start this blog properly with a post about me, my body and why I think the body positive movement is so important. The pictures above, well this is me. I chose this dress as it shows off everything. This is me and this is my body. I generally wear clothes that hide my stomach and I have never worn this dress out in public.

But this is my body, and I am determined to love it. From top to bottom I can pick out flaws easily, its much harder to tell you what I like about me, but I need to start to love it.

As you can see my stomach sticks out, I cant tell you how many times I have been asked when I am due.

I am not putting my life on hold while I wait for the ideal body, and that is something I have done in the past. My aim for this blog is to hopefully show that you can be a fashion blogger at any size. I mean that too, any size. None of this real women have curves rubbish, a real woman can look however she wants and be however she wants to be.

I know that I am going to have negative times, but hopefully the positive will outweigh these but I will be sharing this every step of the way, and hopefully in time I will fully love this body, flaws and all!

Did you know I have a lifestyle blog? You can follow it HERE.

  1. I love this idea. I'm not brave enough to do this; I've struggled for a long time about how to overcome my body confidence issues.

  4. This is fantastic. My instinct is to say "well done" or "how brave" but I really think it shouldn't be a brave thing, to be honest about our bodies. It often is, though.
