Right, I am feeling inspired by @mother_of_daughters to get on this body positivity ting and share some good tidings to all the Mummas. #bodypositive#loveyourbabyloveyourbody . Props to Clemmie for starting something so important via a great shot in a bikini , she has had 4 kids and is looking pretty fly #fit. Bravo. I have always been plus sized, like always. Teetering between the cosy roast potato friendly size 14 and rather more voluptuous size 16. I have always been what I have. Sometimes I have been OK with it. Sometimes not. Thick thighs. Big Bum. Body of Crimewatch. Face of Baywatch. As I took to the waves this week on holiday with my baby , sure we may resemble Shamu and calf and the bikini may not be matching..But, I feel proud. Actually bloody proud. Sure my new addition to my body since the birth of my lil mate aka le puppy pouch/ mummy tummy/ ‘cesarean special for madame’ needs some serious panelling/scaffolding and occasionally some support wear or pants up to my boob’s resembling a 50’s pin up to suck it all in but there is a mega positive reason behind this. It carried the best addition to my life for 9 months. Wow. I can’t still get my head around it. My body made and carried a baby for that long and then delivered it into the world. It is a miracle. So yes, my body may be beautifully Imperfect but when I walked down that beach. I dId almost walk down it like a catwalk and that my rent was due. This is me. A mother. An plus sized model with @uglymodels and a massive cheerleader for celebrating all shapes and bodies. Own it. You deserve to. We are all different. That alone is what makes us beautiful. Shake it Mumma.
