What I love about Hips and Curves is that everything they sell lets you beautifully showcase your…well, hips and curves! About a month ago I began collaborating with this fabulous e-commerce site, and the final product was a feature on the site’s blogger spotlight and my very first lingerie shoot. And I’m pleased to say it isn’t the last.
This is the next installment of my H&C photo shoots. I have to say, I was overwhelmed with the positive feedback I received from the last shoot, so I hope you’ll all love this one as well. I adore the femininity and classiness of all of H&C’s lingerie and apparel, so it was no surprise I had a blast shooting these. I’m obsessed with the balconette shelf bra’s bow strap décor, the Bettina lace and mesh boyshort’s comfy sexiness, the waist-high leggings and the fact that I can wear them as pants or active wear. Not to mention camisoles are always lovely, and backseam stockings make the vintage aficionado in me ecstatic.
One of my main goals with this blog is to show that big is beautiful (notice that the “is” is bolded, italicized and underlined!) — to show that you need not be skeletal to have a beautiful body — that curvy women have as much a right as any other women to feel confident and demonstrate that through the clothes they wear and the attitude they carry. The fact is, I love seeing plus-size women modeling lingerie and swimwear, and I’m delighted to be a part of their efforts.
P.S. Unfortunately, I am an epic clutz and broke my thumb, thus the neon green cast. Hopefully this does not detract from the gorgeous Hips and Curves pieces!
