Dita Von Teese and the vintage pin-ups really made me appreciate my body shape more than countless hours spent looking through fashion magazines ever could. When not in corsets, it’s just really nice to see thighs that don’t fit into size 2 jeans and some softness in a woman’s stomach, just like mine, and still have it be sexy as hell to humanity.

Take It Back

Tonight in my Gender Comm. class, one of the (few) guys brought up the fact that Toronto has apparently been experiencing a lot of rape cases recently, which he attributed to the fact that women there have been warned not to dress “like hoes.”

Now, I’m all for appropriate attire and not over (or UNDER, in this case,) dressing for an occasion like going out and clubbing, but just the way he kept saying that these women were almost ASKING for it by the way they displayed themselves as sexy, sexual, alluring creatures infuriated me, and in this, my class that could be retitled “Talking Openly And Safely About Our Relationships And Very Personal Lives,” I brought up the fact that I recently posted (obviously) nude silhouettes. 

I told him, and everyone else, that I was not doing it for attention, or to be risqué. I told him that I was not “asking” to be viewed as a sex object by doing so. I told him that I should be free to use and express my appreciation for my body— this body that I’ve worked long and hard to get it to this point that I am so PROUD of— because it is MINE, and I LOVE IT. It has NOTHING to do with “asking” for sexual comments— no surprise I got that anon after posting them, though, right? I was well aware that something like that would probably happen. Just like those women who he deemed as “asking for it” shouldn’t be judged for wanting to feel and look whatever way that they themselves feel good looking or feeling. In fact, posting those pictures was probably the furthest thing away from sexual— instead, it was a celebration of ME. Of feeling comfortable in my skin. In enjoying the way my body can bend, can stretch, can glow in lighting. I was taking my body back, embracing it, and making it mine by making it something worth enjoying to see, just the way that artist’s models (hi, that’s you, mom,) do, or ballet dancers— have you SEEN how little the wear? And yet, neither of those things are sexual. Or, at least, they aren’t meant to be.

So, here’s my sticking point— it’s time for women to take back our bodies and what they mean. Those aren’t breasts— they’re what make my shirt fit right. Those aren’t my hips— that’s what help me open a door when my hands are full. That’s not my ass— that’s what I know how to sit with perfect equitation on a horse on. Whether we’re taking our bodies back from people who would try to sexualize them just for the sake of frivolous titillation, or from the ad campaigns that seem to be brow-beating us into thinking that there’s nothing in life other than a size 2 woman, it’s up to us ladies to remove the shame with the clothes, stand up, snap a shot, and say, “This is mine. This is my body. I am proud of it. And I’ll do/eat/dress with it what I like.”

"I’ve been telling everyone who hasn’t met you yet that you have a porn-star body. Because it’s true."

Nothing like some kind words from the S.O to boost a girl’s self-esteem.

As I see it, there are two ways a woman can handle her sexuality: She can either own it, or she can let it own her. I don’t like anything dictated for me, so I own mine.

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my lips since middle school when one of my friends reported on the fact that I had “huge lips” and the popular girls liked to tease me about it behind my back. After my face filled out (along with the rest of my body,) I grew to love them as my mother pronounced them “kissable,” the guys I was seeing seconded this opinion, and strangers started stopping me on the street to tell me they’d kill to have full lips like mine. 
Now, mostly, I find it ironic that they’re so full they almost completely cover this Labret.

Body Image Irony Life Oops Uh-Ohhh

This is my body. I’m proud of it. I eat what I want, within moderation. I cook for myself, but I also have been known to frequent McDonald’s drive-thru. I work out when I can, and use running as a way to blow off steam, but I also think a perfectly nice way to spend a sunny afternoon is reading on the couch. I’m active, but I don’t try to fit into any particular size. I’m the daughter of a Marine sergeant with great legs and a high school track star beach babe with great legs. I have good genes, and I thank my parents for them regularly. I know what my body is capable of, as well as what it’s not. I’m 5-foot-3 on a good day, 127 pounds, and my measurements are 36-25-36. I wear size 6 jeans and am a 36C or 34D. I have curves in the right places. I love them, and I know because of them, I’ll never be a size 4. That’s not a priority to me. What IS is that I’m healthy, I have good body-esteem, and that I’m friends with my body. I love it, so I expect it to love me.

Thus far, it’s working for me.

XOXO

Post boob-shaking, pre-weigh in. 
This is to celebrate(?) the fact that I now weigh 122 pounds after somehow losing 5 without even trying or realizing it in the last week. 
Let me reiterate…after losing 5 pounds WITHOUT TRYING while PMSing.
I deserve a fucking medal for having found the weight-loss answer, not realized it, and continuing life like a regular human being who eats at VPB and McDonald’s. Because that’s what I’ve been doing.
This is my body; I’ll show it because I love it. Petite. Small. Fun-sized. Miniature. TINY. I feel like the littlest VS Angel. Also, hey, nice tits. No weight lost there.

Shamed Into Skirts.

Ok, so, like I admitted to, I was reading Good Housekeeping (October issue, natch,) when I came across this fashion Q&A and promptly got appalled. “I’m a plus-sized petite— 5’2” and a size 16— and I’m unsure which styles work best on me. I like my legs; should I play them up?”

And Good Housekeeping said…

"Absolutely! For most women your size, finding pants is an unending struggle, so you may want to stick to skirts or dresses."

Now, I will flat-out admit that while I AM only one inch taller than the woman who wrote in, I am 5 sizes smaller than she is at a size 6, so I may not know the “unending struggle” that a size 16 woman has to go through to get a pair of jeans she likes, but…I DO know several size-16 women who SOMEHOW manage to drag themselves through that chore and find perfectly flattering pants on a regular basis. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen one of my most-curvy friends in a skirt or a dress; I think she’d rather die first than give up her pants. So, stop telling these women that finding pants is a struggle and that they should just cover up in skirts and muumuus instead. Give them some ACTUAL advice, like names and styles from manufacturers who SOMEHOW manage to create a great-looking and great-fitting jean for the larger sizes, or what jean cuts can showcase their assets the best. THAT might actually be helpful, instead of trying to shame these women out of showing off.

And for the record, Good Housekeeping, I have a hard time finding pant cuts that fit and flatter me, all 5’3”, 122-pound, 36-27-36 perfect hourglass measurements, size 6 of me. That means that swimsuit-model, general hot-bod owner Carmen Electra, whom I share height-and-measurement stats with, also has a bitch of a time finding pants she thinks she looks hot in. It’s NOT a size thing; it’s a BODY SHAPE thing. It’s a WOMAN thing.

So kindly take your nose and opinion out of my love-handles and curves. Or do you want to try telling Carmen and Mad Men’s foxy-lady-extraordinaire Christina Hendricks that they don’t look good in jeans?
