Marilyn and Her Curves

Marilyn and Her Curves

Every notice that Marilyn Monroe had curves?  And her curves got more pronounced as she got older? Which actually increased her sex appeal. To this day, no man looks at pictures of her and thinks” big girl” or “wow look at that less than flat stomach.”  No, they think “Hot, Hot, Hot.”

And yet, as I look at this famous photo of Marilyn and President Kennedy taken after she sang him Happy Birthday,  I think that if she had been born now, she would be considered “big” by Hollywood standards.  And would need to be in something like the TV show Mad Men in order for her curves to be appreciated.

The past few months, due to a variety of reasons, I haven’t been running and doing pilates with the regularity I normally do. As a result, I’ve gotten a little “fluffy.” In my head I beat myself up every time I glance in the mirror. My self-image has gotten worse than normal. But my boyfriend thinks I look amazing.

I’ve noticed that in my life, whenever I start to feel a little more curvy, and heavier than I’d like to be; this is about the same time the man in my life seems to grab my ass more – and play more with my breasts – not less.  And I’m a curvy girl to begin with.  Always have had that hourglass figure.  But when I go from a size 0 or 2 to a 2 or a 4  – I feel very self-conscious of that.

Me all I see is that my cellulite is more apparent, my stomach is no longer flat, and my clothes fit a little tight.  My man, all he sees is fuller curves to kiss, caress and put his hands on. And then he constantly tells me I look beautiful and sexy and he loves me just as I am.  (OK girls, I do know what an amazing guy I have.  And I have to say after having other reactions to gaining a few pounds from previous guys – dump any guy who isn’t your biggest fan at any size.) 

I am really working to love my body in any state it’s in.  And while for me, I feel that being thinner is healthier, as I am only 5’2,” and I feel better at 112 pounds than 128. eeeeeek!  I am trying to really see myself as woman. To love myself and allow my self-image some leeway in what it defines as beautiful. To see myself  as Goddess, as Beautiful –  regardless.   More like Marilyn…

    I as the man in your life must tell you that you look even more amazing now than the first day I met you my love.
    When a woman is sexy and knows she is it doesnt really matter the body style. A woman who has curves is alot more sexy than a woman without curves.
    Trust me..A real man wants a real woman. We dont find the stick figures shown on TV as attractive as you might think. Half the women that women seem to think are hot look more like teenage boys than women.
    Its actually a little sad that women think thats what they have to look like to feel beautiful. Beauty comes from within and if a woman is with a man who doesnt find her sexy and beautiful then she just needs to find a man who appreciates who she is and what she looks like.

    awwww! The comment your boyfriend left says it all more beautifully and cuter than I ever could! But I agree real men love real women! There is so much pressure on us women to look so skinny but if you look on TV so many of those women look like each other! They are filled with insecurities and so the things that make women beautiful is her essence. Its the things you cant really touch but try to touch or smell, or feel. So Michelle you are beautiful!
