When I posted a previous #LIFE image a few weeks back, I took a couple of pictures. The one I ended up posting showed me only from behind. It was, despite my expanding size, the most ‘flattering’ picture. Then there were a few others that were similar in style, same lingerie, but showed more of the weight I have gained over the pasts months.
It’s taken me longer, perhaps, than others to embrace my pregnant body. Not so much when it’s just a body, but accepting that it can also be sexy. I don’t usually wear lingerie, but with my boobs now oversized, some support is needed. So I have this one pair of ‘sexy’ lingerie.
Now that I’m looking at the last two months or so before little ‘bump’ will make an appearance (in my life, not on this blog!) I’m beginning to feel more confident. Yes, I used to have an idea of what beauty was supposed to look like. But seeing so many bloggers proudly displaying their kinky sides in all shapes and sizes, I not once saw anything but a beautiful body.
Just when it came to my own, I saw all the changes with a negative body image. Even posting the earlier picture was difficult. Let’s face it, my ass was nice and round. So now I’m posting another #LIFE picture, because I like it. I like the full body, the weight I’ve gained, the curves that go the other way.
For those who like them skinny, you’re missing the point.
