WHY ALL MEN NEED TO MAKE SURE THEIR WIFES LOVE THEIR BODIES

‘One day when I came home from work, my wife was waiting for me in the living room with that certain look on her face. She wore a new white bustier, a miniskirt and her favourite heels. I was the happiest man on earth, but I didn’t know the reason for this pleasant surprise. I asked her: “What’s wrong? What did you do? What did I do? Why do I deserve this look?” My wife came up to me, hugged me and then kissed me tenderly. Then she said: “I had a meeting today in the office. I sat next to the most beautiful woman in our office. She is a former model and works now as the executive secretary. We all envy her for her beauty. But during the meeting she asked me if one can see her rolls in the back when she sits. I said no and that she looks great. But she kept asking and then I asked back why she is so insecure. She said that her boyfriend left her last week, because she got fat. She was a size 4 when she met him and now she is a size 8. She said she is trying hard to lose weight to get him back, but she hopes that he will stop harassing her for her bigger body. I told her that I am a size 12/14. I have breasts, hips and a butt, but my husband never complained about my body weight. He may not be saying that I am beautiful every day, but when we go out he always makes me believe that I am the most beautiful girl in the world. Plus, he never ever complained about my body, my tiger stripes or my back rolls. Also when I start to complain about my body, then he tells me that I am the most beautiful woman in this world and that he doesn’t deserve me, so I give up complaining. You should forget your ex-boyfriend, because he can never make you happy. You are still very beautiful and now with a size 8 you look even better with your curvier body. Find a man who thinks you are beautiful no matter what size you have and he will help you to love yourself more.” The husband smiled and kissed his wife back holding her close with his arms.

This is just a story that I made up, but it’s true for so many insecure women out there. It doesn’t matter if the insecure woman on the story is a former model who just gained a little weight or if it is a woman with a size 20 fighting hard to lose weight to fit in a superficial society. In these times where are thought by the media that only thin woman are beautiful, we need to make woman of all sizes believe that they also have a right to be happy.

We from Style & Curve Mag do this online and we made empower plus size women our agenda, but you men at home can do this in daily life too. As soon as you see your wife being angry about herself and her appearance, you need to stop her and ensure her that she looks great. And if she still doesn’t believe you then show her the page of Style & Curve Mag, we show women of all sizes and can help you also.

Here is a great example of our fan Michael:

‘Your page…and other like it…have done more for a woman’s self esteem and mainstream embracing of natural and real sizes then any book, seminar or celebrity infomercial. My wife loves your page and it has allowed her to see herself as beautiful as I have always seen her. She shares these pages and images with me because she feels a) “I am just as beautiful as they are” and b) “you think I am just as beautiful as they are”. The anonymous nature of the Internet causes even the shyest of individuals to become a brazen, vulgar, narcissist. The Internet is full of mis-truths, misconceptions and misunderstandings….but it is also a source of knowledge, understanding and wisdom. Thanks to you choosing to show the world how life, body and beauty really is and should be my wife has finally come to believe that she is normal, that she is beautiful…and most importantly…come to believe in herself.

Thank you for all you do smile emoticon
A grateful admirer.’

If you also know such an insecure woman, then share this story with her and show her the truth. We are all beautiful!

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:

#STYLENCURVE

#BEACHBODYNOTSORRY

#CURVESINABIKINI

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:
