Pardon My Cellulite, I’m Wearing Shorts Today!
Daily Venus Diva

Editor’s Note:  Last month, we put out a call for blog posts that celebrated plus size women for our first annual “Thrive In Your Curves” blog carnival.  Throughout the month of October, we’ll share these posts in hopes that they inspire you as much as they’ve inspired us.  Our next submission comes from the blog, Size Fabulous.  This post is called Pardon My Cellulite.

If you can believe this, this is my first summer wearing shorts, short skirts and dresses…IT’s TRUE. I was like many plus size women and was very insecure about showing my legs. I would just suffer through the summer heat in jeans or maxi dresses. This year was all about embracing the body I have regardless of what people may think. My thighs are covered with cellulite, but what’s crazy is I had less cellulite when I was wearing jeans in the summer. It may not be appealing to some but I refuse to keep myself covered. I love my body and I am not afraid to show you who I am. Ladies it’s ok to show off your arms or legs. EMBRACE THEM!!!


Style Info: I have worn this tank top before in a previous post (here) and some of you thought it was a cropped tank, but it is not. This is a men’s tank but I loved it and had to get one. I don’t wear sneakers often but having style is being able to switch it up without losing your spark. My boyfriend ended up wearing the same brand tee and sneakers as me (he wanted to be twins lol). It was just a fun day to kick back and chill.

    Yay! Dare to bare the amazing legs that take you anywhere you want to go! We all deserve to feel good in our clothes. If your shorts ride up on your legs (it happens to a lot of us), there’s a solution – PSST: Puts Shorts Straight Today. Just trim them to the length of your inseam and iron in. No more bunching.
