Hello my lovelies!
Hope your day is going well 🙂
So this year when I came back to uni I joined burlesque (a potentially controversial topic) and when I tell people this, they usually ask why, so I thought I’d address it in a blog post.
There are a few reasons…
Number 1- Over the past few years, I’ve been to watch shows and I was fascinated with it, it looks so liberating to watch and it’s genuinely just a celebration of bodies, in all their shapes and sizes, bits that wobble, boney bits, scars, stretch marks, tattoos, etc…
Number 2- While at this shows I was super jealous of all the amazing underwear, I can’t lie haha. Who doesn’t want to get all dressed up and just feel sexy in their own skin?
Number 3- It was a bit of an ‘eff you’ to anyone I’d previously dated, like a ‘look what I did without you’, I liked this feeling a lot, it was empowering.
Number 4- I have a very lovely and talented friend who is actually the president of the society who spent about a year convincing me to join, she’s an inspiration, an absolute queen, and you should definitely follow her insta- https://www.instagram.com/ellestregis/
Number 5- Just the community of burlesque in itself, supporting other people, cheering them on, telling them when they look fabulous, that’s my kinda jam.
Thanks for reading, hopefully, this post has inspired you to go to a show or maybe check out your local club? (And yes, boys are welcome too)
Lots of love,
