As a mother, the real challenges of owning one’s true self-expression out in the world leave me feeling angry. The fact that these stereotypical pressures of tighter/shorter still exist is archaic. And at the same time, I am grateful that there are some true trailblazers out there who are showing us all that sexy/attractive/desirable comes in many shapes, sizes and outfits. I tell my girl (and do believe) that our true beauty is seen through our uniqueness and differences. And, just weeks after my own body changing surgery as a single woman, if I am completely transparent and call an uncomfortable spade a spade, I too have my own momentary doubts that this is always the case.
