1. The butt gap!

In the changing rooms, just when you’re about to embrace the satisfaction of fitting in these beautiful jeans you saw out of a shop’s window and you’re feeling yourself. Then,suddenly, you turn on the side to check your angle views and you see it!!! You see the gap! WHY??!! 

Do you like it? Are you feeling yourself in it? Then buy it anyway!!

What to do?

You can either be a kangaroo and fill in the gap by carrying your puppy all around  (don’t do that I’m just joking!) or you can be creative if you feel like this is not a good idea!

The most common ways to deal with a situation like this to simply wear a belt, or use something else as a belt! Trust me, it’ll look better than you think and you’ll rock it.

2. Thigh rubbing

I guess summer and skirts aren’t much of an option for us, some of us at least, definitely not for myself. I guess wearing shorts or skirts without stockings in summer is a torture. Thigh rubbing and the rushes it leaves behind are just not cool!

Have you ever experienced wearing a skirt, walking down the street praying to God to get to where you need to go so you can sit down? That need you feel when you just wanna fold the skirt between your thighs so they stop rubbing with each other while you walk?

I know, I feel you girls don’t worry!

PS. Winter is just as bad, let’s not mention all the pair of jeans we had to throw away because they rubbed away 😂

What to do?

I really don’t know! So please if you have any previous experienced and you actually love yours skirts and shorts feel free to share some tips! 😩❤️

3. No category!

I am personally size 10-12 AUS – small-medium size.

So what size are we really?

Once I got told that I couldn’t apply for a campaign for a photo shoot as I am too thick to be a fitness model and too skinny to be a plus size model! Wait, what? I am a category of my own? I mean that’s okay, I can live with knowing I’m unique but really?

I find that us curvy women usually go by two sizes,

“What size are you?”

“Um, 10-12, or 14-16”

people don’t get it and that’s fine!

What to do?

Look for alternatives. There is always another way.

I really don’t care what they say/think. Don’t let anyone label you! Go by three sizes if you want!

Don’t allow comments, whether some of them seem ‘humourish’ or serious make you feel bad. If you like how you look, embrace it!

4. Simple and standing!

Some of the benefits of being curvy is that we can look stunning in the simplest outfits!

We can rock a very simple outfit only because our curves can make it shine!

And last but not least,

5. Swim wear assumptions.

You go to the store, you’re looking throw the swimwear aisle, the lady approaches

“Hello there, do you need a hand with anything?”

And then you reply,

“I am looking for swimwear size 10-12”

And the shocking response which I got three times, not just once!!!!!

“Oh yeah? Fantastic just follow me, one-piece swimwear is his way”

Um… wait what? I’m looking for a bikini thanks for asking!!

Please tell me if you guys had any similar experiences!

I find the bikini one the most annoying out of anything that can come in my mind!

I hope you guys enjoyed reading!!
