#BadassUndies - Mums Show Off Their Bodies to Fight Against Body Shaming

OK
A new mum's selfie of her in nothing but underwear has inspired other mums to show off their not so 'perfect' bodies. But that is the whole point. These women have had one, two, three maybe even four children and want to show the world that body shaming is not right.

After visiting her personal trainer for the first time since giving birth, Australian mum Mel Rymill was upset after she felt pressured into losing all of the baby weight. 'Obviously you want to get back to your pre-baby weight' was the comment made by her PT. 'It was not a question, it was a statement' she said in her post.

Mel first posted on Facebook but the movement has shifted all across social media platforms and Instagram particularly. Body shaming is unfortunately still far too present, and public figures like Cheryl Fernadez-Versini have addressed the the case before. Women doing this are not trying to offend anyone, just let people know that there it is not a crime to have some baby weight. It is nearly inevitable. Mums are posting their selfies and their stories which are sparking some very supportive comments.


The moral of the story is don't body shame guys. Some mums go through such a traumatic pregnancy, the least that can be done is not remind them that they are bigger than before. Even if some really don't care. To them it is a symbol of having given life and their bodies have changed, yes, but all for good reason. As long as they feel healthy then that is what counts. So let's support these mums as they stand strong again body shaming.
