[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Das Schöne daran, wenn man in einem Klamottenladen arbeitet? Die riesigen Spiegel für Selfies! 😜 Haha, nein, tatsächlich gibt es da vieles, was wirklich Spaß macht: all die tolle Kleidung (die wiederum kontraproduktiv für den Geldbeutel ist, haha!), die netten Kunden, die lieben Kollegen und natürlich auch die Möglichkeit, styletechnisch anziehen zu können, was zu einem passt. ✌🏻 Und ja, auch die riesigen Spiegel sind natürlich praktisch, damit ich euch meine Work-Looks zeigen kann! Hoffe, ihr habt Spaß damit, auch wenn ihr sonst eine andere Qualität von mir gewohnt seid. Für Instagram finde ich das aber ja ehrlich gesagt vollkommen in Ordnung. 😊 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] When women support each other, amazing things happen! 👭 Das Schöne an solchen Events: all die positiven Vibes, die da in der Luft liegen, die Liebe, die wir uns gegenseitig entgegenbringen! Ich wünsche mir eine Welt, in der wir Frauen uns nicht als Konkurrenz sehen, sondern verstehen, dass wir nur gemeinsam stark sind. Neid und Missgunst bringen uns nicht weiter. Genauso wenig wie all der Online-Hass, der leider vor allem von Frauen immer wieder groß angeschürt wird. Das klingt immer so nach Weichspüler-Miss-Universe-Contest, aber können wir uns nicht einfach alle mal ein bisschen mehr akzeptieren, tolerieren und lieb haben? Aufhören mit dem Vergleichen und hintenrum lästern? Wir stecken alle im gleichen Boot, wir sind Frauen (auch die, die nicht als solche geboren wurden!) und wir sollten füreinander da sein und aufeinander stolz sein. In diesem Sinne: ein großes Wowza an die Mädels vom #mysizerevolution Shoot, aber auch an jede einzelne von euch da draußen! ♥️ | 📷 @oliverreetz

Today’s #BeachBodyNotSorry look is a bit different – first of all, because we shot it in the studio, so there’s no beach or pool around. But I think that’s okay, because it’s mainly about the message I want to spread with my annual project. :)

You may remember the project I shot last year with Sung-Hee, called “Female Diversity”, for which I posed naked – I used them for → this very personal blog post. This time, we went for clothing, even though most of the results are in lingerie. We’ve decided to work on underwear shots that are not primarily supposed to be sexy and/or erotic, which is not that easy to shoot when you’re wearing hot stuff, but I think we created some amazing pictures and you will get to see a few of them in some upcoming posts (still has to fit somehow, right?). 

I think, this one is my last #BBNS post for 2018, cause I won’t really be able to shoot that soon – there’s still some chaos because of moving, I really need to find a photographer and I didn’t bring new stuff to shoot. It’s gonna be interesting how everything will develop, blog-wise. And I hope that next year, I’ll be able to show you more beachwear again. 

Today’s photos are a bit different than the others I’ve been using for my project, but I think that’s just what makes them even more special and interesting. Sitting as a fat woman is so often a problem for many, but why is that? Just because we look even fatter when we sit and our bellies keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ (I had to… :D)? Everybody has belly rolls when they sit. Everybody looks a bit more like a little Buddha while sitting, especially all crippled on the floor at the beach. What’s the use of deciding not to sit down cause people could see you’re fat? Is it really worth it to try and hide yourself with all forces? Whether you’re standing or sitting, you’re still the same person and when you’re fat, you’re fat. That is that. Nothing bad about this, nothing to be ashamed of. It’s just a fact. And it’s still just an adjective. Even if you can see it and others can see it too. People who actually believe that they have any right to say something, should rather go eff themselves. Maybe we, the fat people, should actually start answering this instead of being ashamed and feeling sorry for our existence, even if that’s not polite at all. But is it polite to tell someone else he or she is disgusting? Or laugh about them? Or point at them with your fingers and whispering something to your friends? Think about it. And then choose to spread some love instead. Did I just contradict my own idea of telling mean people to go eff themselves? YES, I DID. Because: maybe smiling at them and wishing them a lovely day is a better answer to hate. And maybe it makes them think about the shit they just did. Maybe it will change their day, their view on other people. Maybe it won’t change nothing at all. But know that you just proved that you’re not on their low level of no acceptance and no tolerance. And that’s waaaay better. ♥

• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2017 •

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! ;)

Here it is, the last look of this year’s → #BeachBodyNotSorry project. I’m very sorry and actually pretty sad that I couldn’t provide more different photos and styles but due to my current situation (no beaches, no actual photographer, plus: I was too sad during the summer months) this is all I could do. Now, it’s getting too cold for beach looks but as we all know: next year there’ll be a new summer season and I’m looking forward to new chances and new styles for my most favorite project of the year. :)

Since it’s already pretty cold and also a little bit weird to pose just in a swimsuit on the middle of the street in a small village, I decided to create a pool party look by adding a long kimono and high heels.

This swimsuit might be one of my absolute favorites. I love the print which is kind of watercolor-like. I also love the cut and the fit – even though this is a piece from H&M’s regular collection and “only” EU size 42. Sometimes, it’s worth a try to go for smaller sizes, especially because swimwear is very elastic. Of course, it shouldn’t cut into your skin but I’ve learned that swimwear does not always have to be chosen in your regular size. So that’s just a tip from my side. ;)

I’m finally able to show you another #BeachBodyNotSorry look – this time in cooperation with sheego. I wrote → an article for their magazine in which you can find some tips about confidence at the beach. Since the article is in German, I translated my three tips for you:

1 • Yes, people will be watching you. But maybe they’re not even thinking badly about you? They may think your bikini/swimsuit looks nice, maybe they think you’re a beautiful person, or maybe they’re asking themselves why they didn’t dare to go to the beach like this yet. Sure, there will be some of them thinking very bad things about you, but especially as long as they’re not saying anything, you really shouldn’t care!

2 • If you already know that you won’t feel good in a bikini, there’s no sense in forcing you to wear it. People will notice that you’re not happy. I’m sure you’ll feel better wearing a tankini or swimsuit and if that’s still too naked for your own taste, a cute pareo/beach towel is a great and handy idea to give you a little more confidence – and you can wrap them in so many different ways! You can find a lot of tutorials on YouTube.

3 • The sun is shining, it’s hot outside, everybody wants to cool down and have fun. And that’s what everybody’s concerned about – you may think that everybody’s watching you and making up their minds about you and even gossip secretly or say something very unpleasant that the whole beach could hear, but the truth is: everybody’s so much self-involved that the majority of people around you absolutely don’t care what you’re wearing and how you look. In the end, unfortunately (!) every woman at the beach is thinking the same and doesn’t want to make a bad impression. There’s no space left for a single thought about you and your body at the beach.
But I really need to add to this point that I find it really sad that we’re so much fixated on pleasing others – this should never be our priority number one, especially not at the beach! Enjoy your life and summer!

P.S.: I’ve still got some beachwear here to be photographed! If you’re a photographer in the Erlangen/Nürnberg area, please drop me a line, I’m currently looking for new people to work with me! :)
