Foxers: Boxers For Femmes

Who doesn’t love a comfy pair of pjs to lounge in? Personally, I think these Foxers Boxers are the perfect summer alternative to long sleeves and flannel pants. Especially given the built in bra and pockets, yes pockets in your undies! Comfy, casual, but still totally sexy. Continue reading “Foxers: Boxers For Femmes”

Can Shapewear Be Body Positive?

Can shapewear be body positive? I know some of you have already decided that you know the answer and don’t need to read this, but hear me out for a second. Isn’t the desire to stop wearing shapewear exactly why body positivity was created, or at least one of the reasons why? Wearing it can’t possibly be body positive right? But is it really that simple? Given the body positive movement is so closely associated with feminism we need to prioritize freedom of choice for all people, but especially for marginalized people. We need to ensure that all women are allowed to make all the choices they want. So while for some, body positivity may mean ditching shapewear, for others it may mean giving it a try for the first time. Still, hanging this complex issue on the choice argument is not good enough. We need to look deeper than that.

The Most Body Positive Ad Campaign Ever!

Yep, I know, that’s a huge title but I honestly feel that this one brand is completely deserving of being awarded for the best body positive campaign ever! I say this for a few reasons. First, they have already done two full photo shoots and resulting advertisements for this new campaign. They have shown a strong commitment to keeping their ads body positive and inclusive moving forward. They promised the first one wouldn’t be a one off and they have actually stayed true to their word. Second, the brand has always worked with diverse models and a wide range of bloggers, myself included, so this move to include real women seems natural and not forced as it does with so many other brands.  Continue reading “The Most Body Positive Ad Campaign Ever!”

One Year Later: A Blogger’s First Year In Review

It’s been one year since I started the Body Positive Babe blog on January 6th, 2016. Interesting in that 6 is my favourite number and yet I just realized this coincidence now as I typed out the full date. Also, a pretty cool coincidence is the fact that this is my 100th blog post, a double celebration! So I thought, especially as it is also a new calendar year, it would be a good time to reflect on all I have accomplished. 2016 was the year I created and launched my own blog, but also my very own signature scent! Plus I have all the details on a huge giveaway valued at over $500 total, you don’t want to miss this opportunity. Continue reading “One Year Later: A Blogger’s First Year In Review”

New Year, Same You, Different View

Here’s the thing about New Years, it could be an absolutely beautiful time of year. It could be a time for reflection, especially since most of us get a day off from work and quite frankly from doing much else because everyone is also off and at home. It could be a time for relaxation and renewal for all the same reasons. It could be a time to spend with friends, family, and other loved ones. Instead, it is a time of year when a huge number of people are made to feel shitty about their bodies as a result of the massive influx of diet, exercise, and weight loss advertisements.

The Difference Between Corsets & Bustiers

Did you know that corsets, bustiers, and waist trainers are not synonyms for the same thing? They are actually all completely different items with their own design features and purposes. Many mainstream and popular lingerie brands are incorrectly using these terms interchangeably and contributing to the confusion. Consumers need to know the real meaning behind these words so they are satisfied with their purchase having received what they intended to. So what are the main differences between the three options? Cost, material, purpose, and design. Continue reading “The Difference Between Corsets & Bustiers”

Can A Feminist Love Corsets?

Can a feminist love corsets? Does saying yes, make me a bad one? Is it more or less shameful to feminists than my love of kink and BDSM? Was the fact that I pose in my underwear and blog about it enough to make you doubt my holding feminist as a title? Which one would you insist should force me to give up my feminist card? Well, if you ask me, the answer is none. I truly believe that as long as one possesses a critical analysis of the things we enjoy, we are free to enjoy them.

Belly Love For All

Did you know that worldwide the most hated body part is the belly? Yep, if people are asked what body part they would change, the most popular answer is their stomach. People have been taught to envy flat stomachs and the people who possess them. Fitness magazines and diet advertisements have society believing that abs are the path to happiness. Well, I am here to tell you that that simply isn’t true. Since we have been taught to appreciate abs, we can be taught to appreciate soft bellies as well. Continue reading “Belly Love For All”
