Hi yinz! First off, if you want to join in on body positive meet-ups with Yinz
While there is an expiration date set for women to express themselves, the reality is we truly haven't had the freedom of expression without ridicule in the first place.
People have commented that this look is a bit like a character in a John Water's film. This isn't the first time and it won't be the last time that I receive a comment of that nature. That is always ok with me because Divine has been my body positive fashion inspiration since I was a teenager.
I feel showcasing the body in various angles is super important and I want us all begin to make peace with our bodies from each vantage point. I have a gut and a butt and this is important to spell out when I am discussing how an item fits. Plus it is powerful for women/femmes to be comfortable in their skin.
Please get rid of those the outmoded conventions that dictate what a person should wear because of size, gender or age. We all deserve better than that. We deserve the right to love ourselves and showcase it in anyway we want!
