Body Positive and How Boudoir Can Help You Improve Your Relationship with Your Body

Some of you may be familiar with the body positivity movement. Although it dates back to 1960s, the actual term “body positive” emerged in the mid-1990s when a therapist working with eating disorder patients attempted to shift their focus off their body weight and gear it toward acceptance.

The body positivity movement initially focused on body weight and encouraged people to accept and cherish their bodies regardless of the size. Over time, that philosophy has expanded and today body positivity refers to the assertion that all people deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of how society and popular culture view ideal shape, size, and appearance.

In other words, someone who is body positive appreciates their body despite the flaws, feels confident about their body, is accepting of their body’s size and shape.

Body positivity also encourages people to embrace and accept natural changes that happen to our bodies, such as aging or pregnancy.

Boudoir photography provides an excellent opportunity to practice body positivity. It invites you to step out of your comfort zone and feel confident in your own skin. You can do it without fear of judgment, comparison or criticism.

For many years now, women have been shamed for their looks. Forced into a narrow description of “beauty”, they have been shamed for their weight, size, shape or age. Only certain body types and facial features have been described as desirable and attractive.

At Pure Boudoir, we challenge those wrongful perceptions and prove that beauty comes in many different forms. Beauty can wear size small or large, stretch from 32A to 40G or further. Beauty can have small hips or big booty, weigh a 100 or 300 pounds.

You are perfect just the way you are and you deserve to feel that way about yourself. Positive body image affects our overall mental health and well-being. Let you of others’ assumptions of who you should be and embrace the perfect self that you already are.
