So I always lingered with the idea of a blog that marries the celebration of women’s sexuality and body positive for full-figure women. As someone that has struggled with loving herself, specifically my body, I always was curious if I would be considered sexy. When I was 19, I bought my first piece of lingerie from Frederick’s of Hollywood. It was not only my gateway to my love of lingerie, but also the beginning of me falling in love and valuing my body. It was a simple black corset, size 40, with a beautiful pattern the mirrored the French rococo drapery of the 18th century and applique. I was tickled by the garter straps that actually looked good against my thighs and the long made the cellulite booty look beautiful. My breasts we high and looked like the top of a caramel heart. Although it did not cover the wider part of my torso, this simple corset allowed me to know that I am sexy, sensual, desired and worthy. It moved beyond me questioning on whether I would be someone else’s object of desire, I began to desire myself. It went from one corset, two several corset, thigh highs, teddies, chemise and even in the growing collection, I still experienced highs and lows from myself and others. I still experienced fat shaming and critiquing, but I had acquired the tools of self love, self awareness, self appreciation and celebration of my body and sexuality. These are the words of The Sultry Buxomness.
