a few months ago a friend of mine asked if i was available for a photoshoot with chubbies! they were looking for ladies to model their new shorts line for women. i was excited to join the crew and show off my thighs in some chubbies shorts. if you go to the website you can find photos of me here and there with my blue hair!
fast forward a few days and chubbies asks me if i want to model their swimsuit. gulp. without hesitation i said yes. was i going to feel comfortable prancing around in a swimsuit in front of a camera all day? no. was it something i needed to do? yes. this is what the movemeant foundation is all about - celebrating and being proud of our bodies. if you haven't heard about movemeant stop reading this and go to their page now!
i'm not the typical model size. i workout six days a week, eat healthy (for the most part) and my thighs touch... they always will. i have a nice layer of wine and cheese on top of my very strong abs. but this is why it is important to me to model this swimsuit (or any swimsuit really). people need to see real bodies. not photoshopped not altered but just beautiful the way they are. the chubbies photography team made me feel comfortable, beautiful and empowered. statements like "your butt looks great in this suit!" broke the ice as i attempted to get my covergirl on.
next up! videoshoots. they came up with an awesome concept to offer "pants repair" for april fools day. because let's face it, life's too short to wear pants :)
all in all. the team at chubbies rules. working with them is a dream! great product. great people. #dawning with a bunch of #dawners. what more could you want?
sky's out. thighs out ya'll
