we have a new sister community: curvygirls2 (general discussion). This community is a place to come and share any life experiences as a curvy girl, not just positive ones. Share anything about you, your body or anything related to you or your body. This community is a place to vent, to listen, to share experiences, and to make friends. (created by amyloo212)

and as always, our sister community womenofthemoon (support for body insecurities and EDs). This is a community geared toward helping women recover from body insecurities of any kind, including eating disorders. Specifically, it is a community that focuses on the natural, spiritual side of healing the body, soul and mind. It is about reclaiming yourself as a woman who deserves everything you think you don't. It is about touching the goddess in you. (created by brightlotusmoon)

---curvy-positive experiences -- yours or someone else's.

I'm really sorry if my recent post wasn't appropriate for this forum.

oh, it was! Britney is a little overly-processed, but more curvy than she used to be -- she qualifies as a curvy woman. Also, curvy stuff that doesn't have to do with self-love is allowed, as long as it's under a clearly described lj-cut. ;-)

Oh, good. I was worried!

There was an interesting opinion piece on msn this morning, that really reminded me that we're not alone in the world!



I passed the bathroom mirror on my way to the shower this morning and noticed that my body shape was waaaaaaaay closer to Spears’ 2007 MTV Video Music Awards Edition than it was the 2003 Edition. I placed a smug hand over my non-obese-but-non-washboard abs, my…paunch, as some critics would have it. I mentally rolled credits on my own candid reality show and set of paparazzi to track me to the craft store. Go, hot, average me!

Then, as Jay Leno heaped fat-joke scorn upon her head on “The Tonight Show,” I felt sad, and paunch-conscious. If Jay thought Britney was fat, then … then … Jay thought I was fat!

I read that article and really liked it -- seems like there's a nice backlash against the people who called Britney Spears "fat" and "flabby." She may be a basketcase, but she does have fantastic curves.

Also, Bel, thank you for the link to curvygirls2. It was promoted in my community, but I'd forgotten to join,

As much as I don't care for her, and of all the things to criticize her for I thought all the "fat" cracks were rather shallow and juvenile. If anything I think her body looks better, and more like sexy 60s pin up models or Frank Frazetta women. I like her new belly.
