Which curve in your body do you love the most?
Strange question, right?
That’s because we’re always talking up a storm about what we dislike and wish we could change about our bodies. We complain about the extra pounds, the saggy breasts, our pear shaped bodies, our big (or flat) behind — you name it!
Growing up, we got mixed mixed messages on what a beautiful body should look like. But now we know better, right? Our Latina curves rock — don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
We got these curves from the intertwine of our multiracial roots, and the fine design of God’s hands…
Full or thin lips, thick or small noses, thunder thighs or not, flat chested or a 40DD, we love this temple that carries our vibrant soul and dynamic spirit.
Here’s the secret: Confidence is the new beautiful. Feeling proud of who you are and your ancestors will create a more confident you. Embrace your body size — gordita, amasaita, o flaquita — it’s all good! Got too much boobs and a flat behind (or vice versa)? Who cares? Walk with your head held high and with orgullo, move those hips from side to side, and flash your your million dollar smile.
And if there’s a curve you need to put some temporary control over, don’t hesitate to use the good-old faja, or its American-counterpart, Spanks!
To flaunt our Latina body pride, let’s declare the month of June: “Latina Curves Month!” Yeah, why not? Let’s show the world our God-given beauty – the richness of our body with all it’s glorious curves!
So go ahead, get your traje de baño ready, and the tight jeans on. We are going to celebrate en grande! Are you in?
Take the Poll! Which curve in your body do you love the most?
