THE PLUS-SIZE POEM: GRETA’S CRUSADE

Greta grew up in a headless cold world,
The love is present, only through the unseeable veils.
She’s told she would fail,
And to be doomed and out of tune to lose with no avail.

School was tough, bullied in smut,
Just one friend,
With one bench,
But cannot quash the evil guts.

Teased and water’s like mountain on cheeks,
“I’m not like everybody else.”
Slim and petite.

No warm arms on cold nights, and no love for a cub,
Stacey’s there, often begrudge.
Greta’s confused, “Why like me, I’m ugly and podgy.”
But the comfort of joy is one to enjoy.

Sixty beats a minute,
Taken through a thousand stinging nettles.
But she will laugh the loudest, when the disgust declutters.

She grows and she blossoms,
The flowers bud and the dirt’s no longer rotten.
Beautiful, bootyfull, victorious of them all,
Confidence is all she needed, and now she’s leading.

Those pop eye buffaloes,
Bellucci walks and the thunder strikes,
Hips curvy mean a sunny delight.

She’s a brave maiden, although trembles of past,
Her hair grew dark, boldly and fierce.
And as time goes on, chesty and lark,
Eyes big and blue, radiant sky clear.

She’s a morning star,
Men spin around, pave the way with gold in her crown.
The owls are out, pink is the colour that’s hidden in mouth,
But the droopy jaws are getting ignored.

The journey of size and the ending of lives,
Time waits for none when the years are polite.
A reflection of the spectrum, and quick flick refractions,
Means it’s brighter, on the other side of the section.

Judgement is all, when time escapes with a catastrophic befall.
So don’t be quick for words can make you sick,
The tables can turn and the needle can prick.

STYLE & CURVE SUPPORTS THE #BEACHBODYNOTSORRY CAMPAIGN BY SWIMSUITSFORALL

I shared on Style & Curve the newest post of blogger Lu zieht an, where she tells her opinion about the #BeachBodyNotSorry campaign from swimsuitsforall a few weeks ago already. But since we changed the website, it was gone. This is now the #Repost.

Here is what she said:

“The → #BeachBodyNotSorry campaign by swimsuitsforall is probably the best thing of the whole year. Denise Bidot is one of my favorite plus models, she’s just gorgeous! Not only is she beautiful but also a mother, so her body has already gone through a wonderful story of love. So there are a few “love marks” (yes, I want to call them that!) on her tummy. She also has cellulite like probably everybody on this planet (yes, even boys and men can have it!). swimsuitsforall did this “Beach Body. Not Sorry.” campaign with her and used absolutely no Photoshop. And OMG – she’s looking sooo hot! I don’t even look at any “imperfections” (why would we call them that?), all I see is one of the world’s most beautiful women, wearing sexy swimwear … and looking like a goddess in bikinis and swimsuits.” read more here: http://luziehtan.de/2015/07/beachbodynotsorry/

And what Lu writes is exactly what I also think about this campaign. This campaign was made to empower plus women and it is the response of the promotion of Protein World called “Are you beach body ready?”, which basically pissed everyone off.

Well, swimsuitsforall created then the hashtag #curvesinabikini and curvy fans shared pictures of them in a bikini. It started with this picture of Ashley Graham:

The social community likes to use the hashtag #curvesinabikini, but I see no one posting a pic with the hashtag #beachbodynotsorry. And we think something should change about this.

THAT’S WHY STYLE & CURVE WANTS TO SUPPORT THE #BEACHBODYNOTSORRY CAMPAIGN AND ASKS YOU TO SHARE YOUR SWIMSUIT PICTURES WITHOUT ANY EDITING OR PHOTOSHOP AND THE HASHTAGS:

The pictures that include our name will get shared on our page. Or you can email it to us to styleandcurve.com.

I love the power of social media and I hope you also think that we need more women who are proud of their “love marks”. I also shared some pictures like this on my blog Curvy Style Rocks:
