How long do you reckon you've spent staring at yourself in the mirror wearing a so-tight-you-can't-breathe dress, scrutinising that line under the stomach also known as 'the belly outline'? I'm guessing the answer is too long. But it's officially time to stop wishing away that shadow under our stomach bulges, because this summer it's the hottest trend of them all, according to this blogger aka our new body posi hero.
Inspirational blogger, @_selfloveclub_ is calling bullsh*t on the desire to have a washboard stomach that shows no sign of any curve, because, and let's get real here, that is a look that is quite frankly almost impossible to achieve and maintain.
She's captioned her powerful post: "Cheers to a summer of rocking clothing that give you a visible tummy outline. Cheers to not giving a sh*t what people think about your body or the way you dress.
"Cheers to embracing what we've been told not to wear because it doesn't "flatter our body type".
"Cheers to living free of judgement, reservations, and inhibitions. Life is short, enjoy it. Don't let others affect your happiness and self worth. Bellies are cute and worth showing off. "
We applaud her for championing that belly outline we're all guilty of trying to hide under loose clothing or with some serious breathing in, particularly around this time of year when it's getting warmer and we can no longer live in baggy jumpers.
The stomach is a part of the body so many of us struggle to work on and be completely happy with, making it a common source of body insecurity, but the truth of the matter is there's no need to hide it away under multiple layers. As this inspirational lady correctly puts it: 'bellies are cute and worth showing off.'
Who ever said we can't look good showing off the shadows of our beautiful, womanly curves anyway? We are beautiful and it's time we started believing it - whatever our shape or size. Dig out that bodycon dress and rock it with confidence today.
