My quiet accomplishment, I wore a bralette out in public.
Spoiler Alert: No one died.
Yes, I decided to be revolutionary and shamelessly highlighted the squishiest part of my body, my belly.
After seeing so many wonderful women sport a lace bralette with a pair of jeans or leggings, I decided to recreate the look and damn if it didn’t feel liberating.
For my take on the trend, I paired this plus size racerback bralette with a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of simple nude flats. I topped off the look with a taupe longline cardigan and kept my accessorizing down to a minimum.
At first I panicked a little and wished I’d brought something to cover with just in case I chickened out. I was beyond aware I was breaking some sort of rule we’ve all been told our entire life and that had to keep my fat body covered at all times. I got over it quickly though and soon I wasn’t even tugging or pulling my top down.
And there I was, being revolutionary in all my plus size bralette glory, smashing rules to pieces and taking a moment to celebrate one accomplishment I never knew I could achieve. Self love, what a powerful thing.
All my love,
