    Are we brave for showing off our big bodies?

    We’ve all seen it – the fat girl in her bikini on the beach, the new mom showing off her postpartum body with the fresh stretchmarks, and the curvy girl “daring” to wear a crop top that shows off her chubby tummy. More often than not our first thoughts are “she’s brave” but I want to discuss why this is not the praise we should be thinking or giving. Obviously one of the big reasons that we see showing off our bumpy bodies as bravery is because the concept of accepting and appreciating diverse bodies is still pretty new to us, even though the fat acceptance and body positive movements…

    Buying Bra’s for bigger breasts

    Bra shopping and wearing can be quite a hack if you’re well-endowed because size options are rather limited and more often than not, the bigger the cup, the bigger the price tag. Did you know that approximately 80% of women wear the incorrect bra size? And it seems that the importance of a well fitted bra can quickly be forgotten when we’re exposed to the hefty price tags or when we’re desperate to find something… anything that sort of fits. I had the most awful day earlier in the week because my bra just wasn’t working for me – it was poking me under my arm and the straps kept…

    How Much does our Body Hate Hold us Back?

    One of the best things about finding body acceptance and love is that I am not missing out on life and all that it has to offer anymore. Do you know how much is out there? Do you know what experiences await you? Do you know what it’s like to LIVE? And to live without the constant body hang ups? I was reminded of how much we get held back by our bodies when I told my mom that I was going for a massage and her reply was “I will never go for one because I wouldn’t want them to see my body”. This made me so incredibly sad!…

    When Body Hate became Body Love

    I asked on Instagram what you wanted to know about body positivity so that I could put together a blog post answering all your questions. I was honestly blown away by the responses because they weren’t the usual and weren’t at all what I expected which is great because not only do I have some really interesting questions to answer but I’ve had to really think about a lot of things. One of the questions was “can you remember the day or moment when the switch flipped” and I felt like I needed to dedicate a full post to this just because I have so much to say about it.…

    Fitspo/diet culture versus body positivity

    This is definitely going to be my most controversial post to date and I am not going to lie I am shit scared, not because I don’t believe in what I am about to say but because I don’t want to offend anyone with what I am saying and because you know, trolls. So before you read this I ask that you go easy on me because I am just a woman who has found her passion and is trying to learn everything there is to it. This post is by no means an attempt to shame anyone but rather to get a conversation going. I would also like to…
