LOVING MY BODY


If someone would have said to me a few years ago that I would be confident enough with my body to post pictures of myself wearing a bodysuit online, I would have laughed at them (and then broke down crying…).



Growing up I really struggled with self-confidence and my body image. I had really low self-esteem and I didn't really think very highly about myself. I would often think that I wasn't pretty or slim enough. That my thighs were too big and my boobs were too small. To try to hide the issues I had with my body, I would resort to wearing clothes that were far too big for me and I lived in large, shapeless clothing. A lot of my wardrobe growing up came from my dad because I would steal his large t-shirts and hide my own body. I soon had it in my head that I was a much larger size than what I actually was and I was buying clothes that were two/ three sizes too big.


I still occasionally struggle with this body dysmorphia but I am in such a better place, a place where I am happy and comfortable to embrace my own body and be proud of it! And in a weird twist of irony, my boobs have actually reduced in size but hey I’m happy having no tits! I’ve gained a true love for showing off my body and shock horror- the waist I’ve been hiding since I was fourteen!


I feel like I’m making up for lost time and all the time I wasted trying to hide my body because I didn’t think it was good enough. I am done being hateful towards myself and my body! Bodysuits have helped me to become hella confident and feel so much love towards my own figure. It may not be what anyone else things is ideal or perfect, but that’s the whole point. It doesn’t have to perfect, it just has to be mine and I am finally ready to own it!

  10. YES! Go girl! I get naked on the internet & even I still have struggled with my body confidence. I also wear baggy clothes for the most part but I'm trying my best to break out of this, there are so many clothing items I see that I really want but just wouldn't wear because they're not loose enough.
