This is Me (Bryana)

April 20, 2011

Age: 23

When I was 17, I thought I was a woman. I had the breasts, the curves, the “maturity”. Then I fell pregnant.
I thought my body would fall apart. I wanted my “woman’s” body forever.
But now, I look at myself with pride, I am now a woman. My husband Loves my body. He looks at it, caresses it, admires it with love and pride. My children will learn to appreciate all bodies. A body without “flaws” is not normal; it is not reality. We will accept all bodies… we *do* accept all bodies.
I am a woman. I love my body. I love Me!

    It must be nice and comforting to have such supportive husband.

    In my case however, my husband tore down everything about me BEFORE we had children, and I don’t even want to know what he thinks of me now….you know….two kids later….left with scars and stretch marks and boobs that could hit the floor any second.

    Count your blessings every single day.
    I don’t know what the rest of you looks like from neck up, but, from neck down, you look like a woman worth loving. I think we all are. Just some of us need reminding :)

    Good point about the emotions. I keep comnig back to the difference in poses. The Dove models look relaxed and natural, while the VS models look like very posed and stiff. Also, I can’t tell for sure, but I wonder if the VS models were photographed individually and then photoshopped into a group. They don’t give off a comfortable-in-my-skin group vibe, that’s for sure.
