Every now and then I do something even I don’t expect me to do… like flounce about on my blog wearing a onesie. You could say FFFWeek gave me the burst of confidence I needed to show you the Yoga Body Suit from Female For Life. I’ve been holding on to it for weeks, making excuses not to wear it. When Mel initially asked me if I’d wear it I said “Yeah sure no worries I could rock that no problem!” but when it arrived I was nervous. Like the rest of the active wear it’s really small but then you pull it on and it moulds to your body… not a camel toe in sight!
I was inspired by Sarah to just pull it on and do my thing. I met Sarah at FFFWeek, she was also on the Fashion Front (and has posed naked too!) and we just clicked straight away and here is why…
How could anyone not be in awe of her confidence, fierceness and poise? If she could rock a gold lamaze cat suit on the red carpet at Fashion Week then I sure as hell could rock one in yoga class along with the rest of the skinny mumma’s working out at the gym between 9-11 in the morning.
This is me just days after returning from the US. After having to primp and preen myself for two weeks straight I refused to do my make up or hair once I was home, even for this shoot. After all I wouldn’t be doing any of that stuff if I was going to the gym for real! So here I am in all my natural glory… wearing a onesie.
Since Toby passed away Charlie (who’s always been a calm, sociable soul) has been glued to me and insisted on being in the photos. I think he’ll be featuring in them regularly from now on… do you love it?
Told you I was keeping it real. This is what my back looks like, it feels a bit confronting to be honest. I’m quite conscious about how big my arms are thanks to a nasty anon commenter on my blog roughly 2.5 years ago. Yep, even I cry and get wounded from comments but I still keep doing what I do not only for me but for you too. I love the way the suit shows off my tiny waist and that when I’m doing “Downward Dog” there is no sign of butt crack or split seams.
I’m wearing a size “Voluptuous” which fits me fine despite normally wearing size “Bella” in Female For Life active wear. That said the bust is a little small for my ample boobs to I’ve just teamed it with a simple tank. It gives me that little bit of added coverage and pop of colour.
Once you wear the Yoga Suit for awhile it becomes quite freeing. I felt secure, flexible and supported. I think Charlie was a little lost for words.
“Dadda, why are you taking photos of this?”
“Seriously Mumma? These are going on the internet!?!”
A Yoga Suit might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I have to say I’m freshly converted. They take a bit of confidence to wear but they hold you in and are really easy to move about in it. During winter I plan on throwing on a few oversized slub tees so it just gives the appearance of tights and adds some warmth.
No one needs to know I’m rocking a onesie after all… do they Charlie?
