Up in arms about your arms?
As Summer is fast approaching along with those hotter days many of us are forced to confront some negative body image. One of those concerns being our arms.
Let's break that cycle and go all out this summer by celebrating our body and all it does for us. From feeling the warm rays of sunshine to the cooling ocean waters on our skin. Our body is a vessel containing infinite amounts of strength, compassion, resilience and sass. Don't you think it deserves to be comfortable?
We are asking you to rethink reaching for that long sleeve in 30°C+ degree weather and ask yourself this, “Who am I covering my arms for?” Is it because the media and beauty industry dubbed terms such as 'bingo wings' and 'chicken skin', suggesting that these are 'problem' areas?
Honestly, is that worth sitting there and overheating for? Dismissing that beautiful summer dress you adore but THINK you cannot wear? Think again babe.
Trust us when we say that no one is looking at your arms. Especially when everyone is battling their own insecurities.
So embrace your arms in all their glory, as they have embraced others, and wear that cute sleeveless dress. Feel that breeze you vixen! You’ll thank us when you're cool and comfortable sipping on something slushy all while looking fabulous.
Free your arms!
