The YBIF series was started as a result of a book I started writing many years ago, “Your Body Is Fabulous: Dress Like It,” because I feel style and fashion is nothing if you don’t love the body you’re dressing. So, every Thursday I feature a lovely lady, bloggers as well as other gorgeous ladies I know or meet, who tell us what makes their bodies fabulous! The purpose is to empower women to to accept and love their bodies’ as they are by showing women with various body types, skin colors, hair textures, and more. This week one of my lovely church members, Kourtney, saw my call for submissions on Instagram a while ago and has stopped by to share with us!
What makes your body fabulous?
Well seeing that I have given birth to two beautiful boys, I would have to say the change of my body if fabulous. I have become more thick in all the right places.
What is your favorite thing about how you look? And why?
I love my smile. Its something about my smile that would cheer someone up, or would just brighten up a room.
What are your favorite things to wear to flatter your body or just help you feel good?
I love Jeans and a t-shirt, or sometimes a pretty dress. Long or short!
When it comes to finding clothes, what are some issues you come across? And how do you solve them?
Well I’ve been working on toning my body, because some shirts that I like don’t fit well around my stomach. So what I’ve done is I would try to put a belt around that area so that is doesn’t look too bulky.
What role do you think the media plays in body acceptance?
I don’t think they cater to the thick and healthy girls as much as they should, which now days I think is important for young girls to know how to accept who they are, because most of them are not comfortable in their own skin.
What are your thoughts on female body acceptance and appreciation?
I feel that all women, big and small, should accept there body for what it is. Learn how to be comfortable in their own skin. Every night before I go to bed I take off all my clothes and stand in front of the mirror and I embrace my body and compliment myself on how I look. That is something I think that all woman should do.
Honey, Kourtney is giving face in that last picture! I just adore that she stands in front of the mirror naked every night and compliments herself!! I am going to start doing that, daily.
