[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Another day, another look. Hatte letztens mal meine unpraktischste Bluse zum arbeiten an. Mit den Ärmeln kann man super Sachen aufsammeln und an Dingen hängenbleiben. Ich mag sie trotzdem. 🖤 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

Mood.

Mood.

Fancy Spot mit lustiger Hand - letztens dann doch mal vor der Arbeit ein nettes Plätzchen für ein schnelles Foto gefunden, aber das klappt auch nicht immer. Trotzdem: hier mal wieder ganz in schwarz, mit meinen bequemen Sneakern und natürlich mit Brille. 🤓 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

Mal die Perspektive wechseln... aus der Ecke hab‘ ich die Elbphi nämlich noch nie angeschaut. Dabei ist es dort irgendwie ganz besonders schön! ♥️ #hamburgloveistruelove

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Long Time no Spiegelselfies im Kurvenhaus - ich war vorgestern kurz dort und hab‘ mal wieder ein bisschen gestöbert, da konnte ich es mir nicht nehmen lassen, mal wieder ein Outfitfoto im Lieblingsspiegel zu machen. 🤓✌🏻 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung | Advertisement] Nach Sushi kommt... genau, Waffeln. 😍 Wohlverdient nach dem Feierabend gestern gab‘s mal was Süßes, bevor ich nach 10 Jahren mal wieder richtig feiern war (say whaaaaat?). War auf jeden Fall lecker und danach ist man pappsatt, beste Basis für einen lustigen Abend! Vielen Dank @wonder_waffel @wonderwaffel_hamburg! ♥️ #hamburg #hamburgfood #hamburgfoodie #wonderwaffelhamburg

[Werbung | Advertisement] Mein 4800stes Bild zeigt mich bei dem, was ich am liebsten tue: Sushi essen. Auch wenn‘s mir für meine Verhältnisse in der Mittagspause ein bisschen zu schnell gehen muss, bin ich aber ganz dankbar, dass ich ab und zu mal bei @yoshi.im.alsterhaus vorbeischauen kann, um mich für solche Wochen wie diese zu belohnen, wenn ich 3 Tage hintereinander von 9:45 bis 20 Uhr arbeiten muss. Die Arbeit macht natürlich nach wie vor Spaß, aber grad Tag 3 von 3 ist schon irgendwie so eine Art Endgegner für die Füße (egal, wie bequem die Schuhe sind). Ich glaub‘ ja immer noch nicht, dass ich mich daran wirklich gewöhnen werde, aber das leckere Sushi macht es irgendwie wieder gut. ♥️ Vielleicht mag ja nächstes Mal jemand mitkommen? Ich schicke euch liebste Grüße aus dem Feierabend! Morgen noch, dann ist Wochenendeeee! 🎉 P.S.: Können wir bitte mal drüber sprechen, wie perfekt diese Nigiris aussehen?? Nicht mal nen Filter brauchen die! 😍🤤 #alsterhaus #japanesefood #japanisch #kobebeef #sushi #sushihamburg #yoshiimalsterhaus

Feeling my new glasses. 🤓 Not sure how I‘m gonna survive these hell-ish temperatures this week at work tho. Can’t show up in a bikini, sad fact.

[Werbung | Advertisement] Und mal wieder ein Futtergruß aus der Mittagspause! Dieses Mal nach meinem selbstgemachten Salat mit einem leckeren @foodloose Nussriegel! Ich hab‘ da eine schöne Auswahl bekommen, die mir die Mittagspause (wortwörtlich) versüßt und obwohl ich noch nicht alle probiert habe, bin ich wohl jetzt schon der größte Fan von „Coco Caramella“! Hätte ich mal zwei davon mitgenommen, haha! Mit dem Code „summer19“ gibt’s momentan übrigens 15% auf das ganze @foodloose Sortiment! 🤓 #eatbettersnacks #foodloose

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Neue Brille, neues Glück. Der neue Job bringt direkt einen neuen Look und den mag ich persönlich ja sehr. Ist das nicht ein fantastisches Teil? Die Brille gibt‘s - und hiermit nochmal ganz offiziell und für alle, die wissen wollten, wo ich denn nun arbeite - bei @fielmann und ist von @lescalunetier! ♥️ #feierabendfotovongestern

As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.

As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.

P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)

It’s already pretty cold outside but I still want to quickly talk about this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project and have a look at the beach outfits I wore this season. I kind of felt that plus-sized beach bodies were more present than ever in 2016. Of course there were a few very important moments like → Ashley Graham on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” or the most recent → “All Woman Project” launched by Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard (featuring some amazing beach wear by Phylyda – I hope I can work with this brand next year!). But we also had bloggers showing their beach bodies everywhere and it makes me proud to say that I’m a part of this – again.

Unfortunately, this time I couldn’t show as many looks as → last year – on the one hand, there simply was a lack of new beach wear (I just didn’t want to wear everything again, but neither did I want to spend loads of money on new stuff – cause our summer in Germany isn’t long enough to hoard uncountable masses of bikinis and swimsuits), on the other hand, I missed almost 90% of our summer because I was very sick. Even beginning to shoot before the start of the official beach season wasn’t that helpful, so I only managed to do five looks (plus two “covered” beach styles, meaning: one with a kaftan and another one wearing transparent stuff over my bikini).

So let’s recap my #BeachBodyNotSorry looks of 2016…

Summer’s over and so is my → #BeachBodyNotSorry special that I have been doing this season. It’s been a lot of fun to share my beach looks with you and it definitely was a matter close to my heart to encourage you all to just don’t give a s*** and head over to the next beach or pool and wear whatever you want, whether it’s a bikini or a swimsuit or you still prefer to cover up a little more with a beach dress or towel. Everything’s okay as long as you feel great. And you should never – I repeat: NEVER – make this dependent on others. Because YOU decide how you feel, how you look, who you want to be – not strangers. Not even your friends or your family. Your body – your rules. And I want to add: your life – your rules.

Coming back to the topic of today’s blog post: in this little recap, I want to show all of my beach looks again and add a few pictures I took on “real” beaches in Brazil during my vacation (a post about it is already in the making, so stay tuned!). And to let you know: it was great. Nobody looked at me in a bad way (at least I didn’t catch anybody watching) and even if – I didn’t care. Because I went to the beach to have fun and I definitely did. I had a great time at several beaches, crowded ones, remote ones, with my family or with complete strangers. Nobody treated me badly because of my body, nobody even mentioned it. All I got was compliments on my beautiful beach wear, on the new bikini I bought in Rio, on what I brought to show off at the famous and not-so-famous beaches. Nobody called me fat or ugly, I never felt like a stranded whale and nobody gave me the feeling that this is not where I’m supposed to be. Because in the heat, that’s where everybody is allowed to be – refreshing oneself in the sea, sunbathing on the beach and maybe even sharing an ice-cold beer with friends.

I really hope that I could at least change one person’s mind and help her to be able to go to the beach without being afraid of being insulted, be it by looks, laughter or words. You’re better than someone else’s small-minded brain that’s not capable of accepting diversity. And you should never listen to these people.

Never forget: everyBODY is beautiful, even if it’s not your own personal taste how someone looks – it’s not up to you to define beauty for the world and it’s not up to you to judge others. And you should never ever feel sorry about your (beach) body.
