Shanna, I'm so glad you have come to this place of self-love and self-acceptance. I went through this with Medium to Large clothing after having my daughter. At first, I didn't like how my body softened and shifted, hips spreading, breasts beginning to gravitate downwards--but, as I've gotten older (she's 10 now) I find myself drawn to my aging body in a kind of respectful, awestruck way. These curves and sags have homed babies and gotten me this far in life. I like not being all sharp angles, protruding hip bones, etc. Thank you for the reminder to love ourselves as we are. 💗
