Size Sexy

By Irene Gomes @PetitePlusMeow

How many times have you tried on a piece of clothing a size up from your ‘usual’ … and didn’t want to buy it simply because you didn’t like that the tag wasn’t what you wanted it to say?

On the flip side, have you ever cheered for joy in a change room upon finding your body being able to fit into an article of clothing that’s smaller than your ‘usual’ size?

I know I’m personally guilty of both of these reactions.

Society has us so obsessed with our SIZE.  Why are we allowing a number on the back of a tag affect us so much?  After all, YOU are so much more than just a number.

Sexy is a state of mind. Confidence is sexy.  Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the ‘perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you already got.  It has taken me a long time to learn this lesson.   I struggle with it from time to time – me and my body confidence are  works-in-progress.  And I have to say that blogging has been the major contributing factor to lifting my sexy, confident spirit. :)

Two years ago, I got an opportunity to reassess and really focus on me again.  I began investing in higher quality fashionable pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories – decorating my outside in an effort to uplift my inside.  The more ‘grey’ I felt, the more dressed up I would get, sticking to that old adage of ‘fake it ‘til I make it’ – if I LOOKED happy and put-together then I’d eventually FEEL that way too.  And it totally worked!

Over the last few months of blogging, taking photos of myself all dolled up, researching new designers, writing about trends and ‘how-to’s’, reading and sharing body positive messages and surrounding myself with positive people who actively strive to challenge the status quo — to re-imagine diverse bodies challenging dominant beauty and body ideas…..has shifted and lifted my self image.  And for the first time in my life I can confidently say:   I’m hella sexy! :)

I had the delight of meeting the lovely Miss Tierra Sedgemore, creator of Size Sexy earlier this month.  And am thrilled to be one of the Bloggers she connected with to help spread this message of self-love, acceptance and body confidence.
