Sinful Sunday: arcs

Smooth. Taut. Toned. Strong.

arcs

The prompt this week is “minimalism“, which, as it turns out, is pretty much my style in a nutshell. So I took an image and made it even more minimal than usual.

I looked for quotes relating to hips and, other than the worn out “hips don’t lie”, I found nothing that was both pithy and positive. The catchiest sayings all expressed embarrassment and self-consciousness, as though the only purpose of hips is to collect fat, which is shameful obvs. As though by representing the widest circumference of most women’s bodies, hips are a sin against an incredibly limited and thus impoverished definition of beauty.

I don’t buy it. Hips are just curves, arcs. Some are curvier than others. No matter. Hips can be juicy and luscious. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

  1. You are absolutely right about hips… one of the sayings I loath is the ‘a moment on the lips and lifetime on the hips’ arrghhhh for a start not true and secondly is all about guilt and shame when it comes to having a female body.

    Beautiful sensual image as always
