Today’s daily one word prompt is Curve.
I was recently looking at some old photos of my mother. The first thing that came to mind when looking at these photos (besides how stunningly beautiful she was) was how women back in my mother’s day were just so glamorous. I’m not sure if it was the hairstyles, the red lipstick they often wore, the clothes, the shoes (oh the shoes they wore!) or just the fact that it was not a sin to be curvy and voluptuous back then.
Women were not judged as they are today for having some “meat on their bones.” Women back in my mother’s day were so beautiful and real. They were not full of silicone and Botox. There was no photo-shopping so what you saw in the photos was for the most part real (yes, I know they could touch-up photos back then). I wish we could go back to those times. I wish women could feel comfortable in their own bodies– comfortable having curves. I wish the media and society wouldn’t send the message that women have to be skeletal thin to be glamorous. How did it get to this?
