Update: big girls can wear bikinis and take insta pics too. This is the first bikini I’ve ever owned, and it feels fucking good that I’m finally happy wearing one. You’re all beautiful bastards. Love yourself.
I am so tired of seeing all of the cute bras only being in the smaller sizes or are ridiculously overpriced. The only bra that fits me right (barely) and supports me is this beige one. I say “screw you” to retailers whom feel the need to either put us in these dowdy bras or to make us pay too much for them.
I enjoy feeling sexy, and a cute bra/panty set is a part of that!
This is to the guy who just argued with me for an hour about why fat people should be ashamed of themselves for “letting themselves go.” For my dad who used to make me run laps until I collapsed as punishment for being too fat. For my mom who put me on the Atkins diet before I was seven years old, who - when I talk about how happy I am to be vegan - only ever asks me about how much weight I’ve lost.
For the guy who, on the day 13 year old me wore a shirt that showed off my arm fat and daringly walked out in public, hung out his window and told me to put that away, fatty!
For the society I live in that treats my body like it’s something to be ashamed of and corrected, not something to be celebrated and loved.
For the voice inside of me that whispers constantly about how I’m not worth my boyfriend’s love and he’s going to leave me unless I get skinny even though he only ever tells me how pretty I am, that my beautiful curves and dimples are unsightly and should be covered up, that I should lose weight before I do anything like wear a dress or a swimsuit or get a tattoo.
Fuck you. I am gorgeous, my butt is adorable, and I will never hate myself as much as you want me to.
