Here’s a special weekend kiss...

Ich bin ja ein absolutes Papakind. Und trotzdem gibt’s von uns zusammen irgendwie kein schönes Foto. Dafür diesen legendären Faceswap. Ich finde, mein Papa geht super als Asterix durch. 😂 Auf jeden Fall: schönen Vatertag, lieber Papi! Ohne dich wäre ich aufgeschmissen. Einen besseren Helden hätte man mir nicht geben können! ♥️

Ich bin ja ein absolutes...

#mybodyisnotyourquarantinenightmare - ich hab‘ mir viele Gedanken dazu gemacht, ob und wie ich so ein Foto posten möchte. Schließlich bin ich die Erste, die immer wieder sagt, dass dieses ganze Nacktheitsding, vor allem bei den Plus-Size-Bloggern, irgendwie Überhand genommen hat und in den sozialen Medien gefühlt nur noch das klassische „Sex sells“-Prinzip für Likes und Klicks und Reaktionen sorgt (dass die meisten davon von ekligen Typen Ü40 kommen, lassen wir dabei mal bei Seite). Trotzdem sage ich auch immer wieder, dass es wichtig ist, auch stinknormale, unbearbeitete Körper in den Medien zu sehen. Nicht zuletzt, damit sich das Bild irgendwann auf Dauer in unseren Köpfen festsetzt, dass auch dicke Körper etwas Normales sind - nicht ein Grund, sich zu schämen. Es geht dabei nicht darum, ein „ungesundes Körperbild“ zu glorifizieren oder zu sagen, dass Dicksein toll ist. Und immer wieder frage ich mich, was die Kritiker denn glauben - dass jemand kommt und sagt „Hey, so fett will ich jetzt auch werden!“? Nein, dafür sorgt unser Schönheitsideal nämlich an jeder Ecke. Und so ist auch jetzt gerade, in Zeiten von Corona, Quarantäne und Selbstisolation - so scheint es zumindest - das größte Problem der Leute, dass sie ja zunehmen und fett werden könnten. Als gäbe es auf der Welt grad kein größeres Problem als Gewicht zuzulegen. Es werden unzählige Memes gepostet, Vorher-Nachher-Corona-Albträume, Witze darüber, wie man sich jetzt vollfuttert,... Ja, dicker werden ist kein Ziel, nichts, wonach man strebt. Aber wenn ich Bilder sehe, auf denen dünne Menschen neben dicken Menschen zu sehen sind und sich darüber lustig gemacht wird, dann ist das weder unterhaltsam, noch irgendwie cool. Es ist verletzend. Für all diejenigen, die auf der „so werde ich nach Corona aussehen“-Seite abgebildet sind. Mein Körper ist kein Quarantäne-Albtraum. Genauso wenig wie er ein Ideal ist. Mein Körper ist mein Körper und ich bin dankbar für ihn. Er mag seine gesellschaftlichen Defizite haben und ab und zu nervt mich der Anblick auch, so wie jeden von uns, aber ich bin dankbar, einen gesunden und funktionierenden Körper zu haben, der mich durch diese Zeit trägt und (mich) nicht aufgibt. ♥️

Wer weiß, wie der diesjährige Sommer wohl wird... am Ende denke ich mir momentan jedes Mal, wenn ich dann doch mal rausgehe „make it count“ und mach‘ mich dann doch noch ein bisschen mehr hübsch als ich müsste. Einfach, weil ich es irgendwie vermisse. Macht ihr das auch so? ♥️ • 📷 @bluthoernchen • #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

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. ♥

Now that’s some major flashback to 2009 – this blog post consists of selfies only (I’ll forever remember myself taking the first pictures for my blog, putting my camera on a stack of books, hitting the self-timer and running through my room for some awkward poses)! I took them last weekend when it was super hot and sunny and I just felt like sharing all the fun and good vibrations I was feeling that day. I originally thought of taking these pictures only for Instagram, but then I decided that even though the photos aren’t of super high quality and I’m not wearing any make-up at all, my hair not properly done and without any concept, just on my parents’ terrace, this is real and deserves to be posted. I wanna be real, I’m not a model, I’m a normal person and even after more than 9 years of blogging, I’m still that same person – just fatter, haha! :)

I believe that #BeachBodyNotSorry is also about this – no perfection, just realness and fun. I mean, who wears a full make-up to the beach? I don’t. Most times, I don’t even wear (water proof) mascara, just sunscreen, that’s all. Of course, my blog is about pretty things and taking editorial-like pictures is a lot of fun and I love the results, but I also love these honest pictures. I love that I was having fun, that I was not caring about how I look. And that’s just the message of this project. Don’t care – enjoy yourself. ♥

It’s finally #BeachBodyNotSorry time again! The sun is shining, the temperatures are hot and all we wanna do is go outside and have some fun! I can’t believe that this is already the fourth season of doing this project and still it feels like we all need it from time to time, cause there’s still the myth of “the perfect beach body” – which is total bullshit and nobody should listen to that. You don’t need a skinny body in order to go to the beach or to the pool or wherever you want to wear your bikini or swimsuit. All you need is yourself, your beachwear and the will to have fun. All those people around – except for your friends and family – don’t matter. Even if they give you that awful look: just ignore it. People will always stare, people will always have an opinion (about others, themselves and a lot of unnecessary stuff), some will force them on you, others will discuss it in private, others won’t even notice you. So why the f*** are you giving so much shit about their thoughts or words? ;)

So here we go, starting a new season of #BeachBodyNotSorry – this time, with a bright canary yellow bikini, showing my belly button, my stretch marks, my cellulite and my cream cheese white skin that could definitely use a little more sunshine (but well, I’m either cream cheese white or lobster red, so I’ll go for the feta and use some sunscreen…). ;)

P.S.: Since we got the same bikini in two different colors, there’s a guest in today’s pictures – my friend → Chrissi is wearing the “Maya” bikini in black, with the balcony top, mine is the tulip cup, both bottoms are the full briefs. ;)

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! ;)
