Just wear it
Love Your Body
It's National Love Your Body Day!
(Celebrate with a special sale from Handful.)
I'm loving all the bikini shots-- looking good, mamas!
Suck it in
This is the best example of how sucking it in and posing can make you look completely different than relaxed and off-guard. My body could look like either of these at any given moment too haha
(For the record, I don't think 'dad bod' is necessarily shaming; and although it's true that his body is no one else's business...except that he makes a living based heavily on it.)
Gain the Weight
I'm not usually big on the celebrity/weight articles, but I like this one. It actually makes sense.
"They say you have to pick your ass or your face and I’m picking my face, but I hope somebody else picks the other one!” hahah
"Whatever your body type is, just use it."
But why bash another company (and with it, another body type)? Come up with your own marketing idea.
To balance out this morning's post, here's some great news about big butts!
Just a little reminder to never ask a woman when she's 'due' :/
(And a pretty good body image article too)
Never Had a Baby Body
I usually love Scary Mommy articles, but not this time. Written for sarcasm or humor, or not, there are people who truly feel like this.
The idea that a good body is one that never had a baby, or that a woman with a never-had-a-baby body is a threat to you or your marriage or your self-worth, is sad.
And the 'wouldn't trade my body for my kids' is (or should be) quite obvious. But here's the thing-- you can have kids AND a good body; it's not an either/or.
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
