EVERYONE’S FAVORITE MERMAID DRESS

angelsandkings:

imageHere is everybody’s favorite mermaid dress from SimplyBe!  After seeing this dress on so many amazing plus size fashion bloggers, I had to splurge and get it.  I honestly rarely spend more than $30 on an item of clothing so this was a big present to myself  This dress was so popular, I checked about five times a day for over a month to wait for my size to come in.  It never did.  I had read there was some stretch to it, and I never saw larger sizes come back in stock, so I bit the bullet and bought it in a US size 20, when I usually wear a 26.  It is very tight in the arms and it is kind of a struggle to get it on, but it worked!  I hate that I look so sad in this picture because I definitely felt like some kind of sea princess in it.  The VBO is something I am really trying to get used to seeing on myself because it was something I tried so hard to hide in the past.  I’m embracing body positivity in a big way!

my name is natalie and i’m fat. i’ve been more fat than i am now. i have been less fat. i’ve been the same fat. i’m fat from the side, fat from the front, fat from the back…you get the point.

fat girls have been lied to over and over in many ways our whole fat existences - told that we are restricted to certain styles/trends of clothing because anything too tight/short/revealing isn’t ‘flattering’. told that we should be glad to be hit on/cat-called by creepy men because hey, at least it’s something, right?! told that the world isn’t open to us and that we can’t be incredible creatures because we’re fat. told that we’re ugly/undesirable/weak/stupid/disgusting. told that we don’t deserve to be loved…or even to live.

it’s not true. none of it is true.

people ask me often - “i hate myself. how do you do it?” it’s simple.

one day, i decided that i was worth greatness, whatever size i was or wasn’t.

i wish i could go back to awkward, shy 13 year old me, look her dead in the eye and tell her that she. is. perfect. tell her that she can go anywhere, be anyone, wear anything and that she will always be important and will never, ever, ever be merely ‘the fat girl’.

i won’t drown in sweat in texas summers to cover my fat arms in sweaters or shield my thunder thighs from the spring breeze just because you don’t want to see them. my fat arms and thunder thighs have always been here for me when much of the world wasn’t. i won’t be beat down by people who do not care if i cry myself to sleep at night.

my mom has always told me that i am my biggest fan and ya know what?

she’s right.

you’re allowed to feel good. don’t let anyone take that away from you.
