I am flabulous :)

I am not a skinny girl. I have a dress size that is for some considered a “bit rank”. I have struggled with my body for many years. Hiding it under black and baggy clothes, avoiding wearing dresses, dressing frumpy and generally not being proud of the body I have. I am plus sized. Obese, fat, whatever. These words have fairly negative connotations around them. So I am inventing a word for what I am. FLAB-U-LOUS. Flabulous. I have a nice body. I should like it more. So here is my body. If you like it great! Enjoy. If you don’t, then fine your choice. Whatev’s πŸ™‚

Boobs! And the swimming costume I almost took back to the shop in the fear my body might scare people.

Dressed up on a night out where every single man I came across seemed to fancy me πŸ™‚

    • Hello! Glad you enjoyed the blog! Ready your post – v well written and raises good points. I am also a size 24! I almost always assume everyone is a smaller size than me which I suppose is a bit body dysmorphic of me. Hopefully one day the patriarchy will stop fat shaming us relentlessly, until then – solidarity πŸ™‚
