What places on your body do you hope to see differently?

Breasts.

 

How do you feel about them currently?

I've always felt like they were shaped like an old lady's, like I have to hoist them and harden them and change them for them to be sexy. The first thing I do in the day is put a bra on often. It's obnoxious that I want to look more like a porn star.

On a more simple level, just the idea of fighting gravity, they weigh, or course they drop down. It feels so silly to be fighting something as natural as the laws fo physics....and why?

How do you react, what happens, when you see these parts of your body negatively?

I feel a strong urge to change them, which I don't feel about any other part of myself. It frustrates me, and I also sometimes laugh and think how silly it is that we've come to listen to men's idea of a woman's breasts for sex, rather than for a woman's view of them for breast feeding. It feels like I'm giving into a man every moment that I hate on them. I also fear continuing a point a view for other women and girls...if I don't convey body positivity and give up the dumb ideas that have been cemented, who will?

Who would you be if you really loved your body?

Powerful. A leader. A guide for women to come. Smart....I am so lucky to have this body.

 

What hopes do you have that would arise when other people see these images? When you see these images?

That breasts are beautiful the way they are. That bodies are supposed to be different, and that above all function is a gift we are given every day.  When I see them, I just want to feel like I am speaking to my body from MY INSIDES, or at least from a wise woman's rather than a man. No more weird men's voices in the mirror please.
