Something I’ve been wanting to sayy

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while so imma do it. 

I recently saw a post on a magazine shaming women’s bodies, even though their bodies were NATURAL, which reminded me of a post a while back that touched on it as well, and I’d like to offer my experience. 

This is my body.

As you can see I’m what people may consider “skinny.” Many people have given me remarks about how skinny I am, how they wish they had my body, etc, etc.

But this is the important thing. Here is what my lower torso looks like in natural bending/seated positions…

Skin and muscle are naturally supposed to fold and roll, it’s just how are bodies are designed, it’s how we work.
