The rise of the glamazon.

I'm going to go a bit controversial on you all here. I don't do this very often but I feel the need to share my appreciation for the rise of the glamazon. (Well that's what I call them anyway). They are the women in the media who don't cave under the pressure to be stick thin and just embrace their curves. It started with J-Lo and it wasn't long before everyone knew her just for her bum alone. Yet now we are just spoilt for choice with these curvaceous lovelies. There's Rihanna and Beyonce from across the pond (and my personal faves as you all well know) and now we have Brits like Paloma Faith, Kelly Brook and Davina McCall flying the flag for us pear shaped ladies. Rihanna is hands down my all time favourite though. You only have to turn on a music channel and wait a few minutes before they are bound to show a video of her parading round in her pants with THE biggest attitude and confidence you ever did see. And quite frankly why not? You don't have to be stick thin to be proud of your shape or your size and these woman are fantastic role models for this.

Now, I'm not going to lie when I first tried this vintage dress on and looked in the mirror I thought "Oh God I can't wear this, its far too tight on my thighs and bum". In fact I even took it off and put something else on but then I decided no, suck it up. I shouldn't be ashamed of the fact that I'm curvy and have inherited the family legs and bum. (Thanks for that Ma. Ha!) I then realised that if I didn't have curves then this dress probably won't even work in the first place.

So I have whacked on my heels and firmly embraced my amazonian status (I'm 6ft without heels as it is). I even listened to this song in preparation...

"She's a brick howwse. She's mighty mighty. Just lettin' it all hang ouuuut..." LOVE IT!
