Body enhancements

On my way home from school, I had an hilarious conversation about body enhancers with a classmate. It started from body shapers to padded bras to silicones and then bum pants.

You see, nowadays what you see isn't what you get. You can't judge a "book" by it's cover any more. Maybe you should stop drooling over instagram photos. You think she is sexier than your wife? Wait till she unleashes the ermerm *coughs* How would you feel if you get home on your wedding night to find that your over sexy bride is flat chested, has a Yokosuka waist or no behind? It's no big deal shey? Lmao. It may start a domestic war especially if it's something that the hubby can't stand.

There's so much packaging - hair, makeup, nails, boobs, waist, bum, hips, high heel shoes, complexion, accent, ... Ladies are really trying. Upon the crazy heat, we still nack everything together. Most times, it's not to attract men but to feel good and confident about ourselves and maybe to oppress (or prevent oppression from) other ladies. How come men don't package their bodies? Wear muscle pads and co? Abi wallet pads are sufficient?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, whatever rocks your boat girl. Padded bra and pants are cheaper and safer alternatives to cosmetic surgery. It's easy to say "Love your body, be confident and wear your skin as it is" but not so easy to practice. I'm a girl, I know the struggle. Very few ladies are at peace with their bodies. Even though many are very okay, we still want a flatter tummy, fuller/peckier bust, smaller waist, rounder bum, longer legs, pointy nose, gap tooth,... Many are okay but not content. Some have genuine issues they wish could be sorted like conspicuously uneven boobs. Who want one lepa breast and an orobo one? Such a person may decide to pad the lepa one to give an even appearance. Anything wrong with that? Don't be so quick to judge, but you can.

Thanks for reading bloghearts. I was grinning from ear to ear writing this. Hope you're doing same reading. Kindly share your view or say hello. Love, Anuoluwapo.

Hello Anuoluwapo, most women play up their assets and try to cover their flaws... however; you should be honest with the person you love before you get that close to them... and they should love you for who you are anyway... not for what you look like...

Cute post and yes it made me smile but guess what men lie about, their height... ahh... I will see how tall you really are when I meet you xox

If a lady thinks she feels confident wearing all these "body enhancements" then she is deceiving herself because when she gets home and take them off the confidence goes from 100 to 0 which will later affect her in the long run.

Most of those who wear body enhancements are either pressured into wearing them or have inferiority complex, they feel they don't look good the way they are, hence they join in the whole body enhancements trend.

*funny* see nothing wrong with it as long as babes do not overdo it. Like u could mk a very small butt a lil big but not extremely big cos we know d diff and for God's sakes we know what body can carry what butt. Same for boobs too

You know mami, whenever I see ladies with all those padded thingys, I tell myself that I would rather go under the knife than make myself uncomfortable...Having said that, I got nothing against people who wear those things...I mean you can wear anything you want buh make sure that they do not in ANY WAY after your morale or confidence level, I mean, I know someone who wears butt pad and waist trainers...buh she wears them because it is just like applying makeup to her (a girl thing)...to her, she is moving with the trend, it has nothing to do with her confidence......
