I've been a "big girl" my whole adult life. I have struggled with my weight and body image for 14 years now. I use to have a SMOKING hot body! I am tall, 5'10" and in high school my measurements were 36, 26, 36. I have always been an athlete. But as I got older and had 2 kids, birth weight totaling 21 lbs, the weight decided to stay on.
I run, on average, 7 miles per week, spin for an hour a week and do yoga and weight lifting in between. I'm active, but the extra weight I have is as stubborn as I am. The Doctor says I am "fit" yet overweight and that's just how my body wants to be. So I deal with it. I still work hard to be fit and eat well and just DEAL with the fact that I am a "big girl" (I hate that term btw!). I will never be a size 4.
All that being said a lot of fashion trends do NOT look good on curvy girls or anyone over a size 6. So, I wanted to start a blog about what on trend fashion's looks good on REAL women. We all know that the AVERAGE American woman is a size 14. Most fashion forward boutiques and department stores don't carry anything larger than a size 10. Even as Americans get larger, designers and retailers cling to the idea that style comes in one size: small. They base the trends accordingly. Items that look FAB on petite girls, look HIDEOUS on curvy ladies.. So, I am going to write about what works for me.
I have always been obsessed with fashion; clothing, shoes, jewelry are my passion and shopping is my hobby. My goal of writing this blog is to encourage and empower ladies like me that have womanly curves and a little extra "junk in our trunk" to look their best and feel confident! SO all you big titty, big booty, curvy ladies, this one is for you! Stay Tuned...
