I’m going to do a little #flashbackfriday right about now because I want to talk about body positivity and big bellies. the first picture is me in 2015. when I took this picture I had reached a point where i felt the most comfortable i have ever felt in my body. a few weeks later my depression hit me so hard I had to stop working. in the 6 months that followed I gained 15kg from the antidepressants I had to take and another 5 kg after that. so while I started to heal from the one thing I had to deal with how my body had changed, especially my big belly. it took a while for me to not only accept but embrace it and understand that i am not less awesome than I was before. au contraire! as you can see in picture number two, taken this summer: I’m fly as f*ck!
anyway, body positivity is hard and society doesn’t make it easier but I‘m optimistic that we‘ll get there... 💪🏼 so all you beautiful plus size mamas what are your favourite shops?
