IG Archive: Belly Roll Love


Nobody is supposed to love their belly rolls, I know that. Or at least I know that's what society and the media has taught me. After all, even most plus size models have every roll, bump and crease airbrushed away so they better fit the perfect body standard. 

God forbid they might bend or sit naturally and show the world what ALL TUMMIES LOOK LIKE SOMETIMES.

But why should we be ashamed of our rolls? Soft curves are coveted elsewhere on the body but met with disgust on our beautiful bellies. 

Why should anyone hold the power to convince us that we're less attractive, less perfect, less amazing because of where our lovely little fat cells settle? I'm not giving anyone that kind of power over my self worth. 

I choose to love my tummy, tensed or folded, toned or soft, and forevermore unairbrushed. 

Love & bopo,
