As a plus size woman, I’m constantly reminded of the “fashion rules” that I must follow – or else. This leaves us curvy girls with an array of limiting, boring, ugly options. I want more options! Trying to stay confined to a tight unfriendly, unfashionable box is not my thing. I gathered all of my strength and busted out of that “rules of fashion” box. Today, I am breaking fashion rules! The age old rule that’s meant to be broken: plus size girls, or girls with larger than average sized arms cannot wear sleeveless tops. Heck yes, I can, and I will!
I’ve teamed up with an amazing brand, Society+, and Society+ to show you that breaking the rules is fun, easy, and empowering. I’ve always, always been self conscious about my large upper arms. I’ve tried exercises, dieting, and so much more. I confined myself to always wearing short sleeves or longer to conceal my arms. Not anymore. I’ve even decided to further break this rule and blow past my comfort zone by getting a full sleeve tattoo on my left arm. My tattoo is very much in progress and in the beginning stages, but I am in love with it. My tattoo, though a drastic was to break this fashion rule, has boosted my confidence so much that I WANT to show it off. I don’t care if I have large upper arms. When I slipped into this strappy, sexy crop top with this perfect black skirt I felt SO good. I felt like I could go anywhere, do anything, be who I am with no shame. Of course I was nervous as I left my house, but the looks I got from strangers were good ones, and my husbands’ face said it all. I look good, I feel good, and darn it, baby, I will show my arms off, regardless. Society+ is such an incredible, empowering brand that celebrates body positivity and body love. I could not think of a better brand to work with when thinking about breaking the fashion rules.
