Thank you :D I really hope it gets some more support! I want something to help encourage more people to submit and to follow haha.
I often use to submit pictures of myself on this tumblr. I love it, it makes me feel comfortable just because there are lots of people in the world who don’t care about how much thin you are.
Who likes the idea of monthly themes? I set a theme for the month and everyone submits photos that adhere to the set theme or something? I want to hear opinions, guys!! I want GPC to stay busy :D
To the lass who submitted anonymously, could you please contact me, I need to talk to you about said submission :) Thank you xo
Of course! You just need to log out of your profile and go to the submit page here, when you submit it’ll be anonymous :D
HI! I’m Kimberly! I am 26 and learning to love my curves more and more each day!!
US Size 22/24
I’m sure that wouldn’t be a problem :) If any girls would like to submit some full body shots showing off their cute tummies, I’d be happy to post them too!!
I’m sure you’ve all noticed that GPC has been a little quiet lately, not many submissions coming in and the like and I was wondering if you guys might help me out with some ideas on how to get this little old blog thriving again? As you saw last month I did attempt the contest idea, but there wasn’t a whole lot of interest shown in that, sadly.
I want to hear what you guys think? I want to make GPC bigger and better and I want you guys to help me :D This blog is for you, after all!!
So, I’d love some feedback on what you’d like to see more of, less of, ideas to encourage more people to submit and follow, things to keep everyone enjoying the blog we’ve got going here :) All suggestions will be gratefully received :D
Thank you all in advance!!
I used to hate how I looked. But I’ve grown a lot as a person and I love the way I look now. Fatabulous. :)
I’ve always been bigger than the other girls so eventually the curves became just another part of who I am. If I was meant to be skinny I would have been that way as a child, but I never was. I learned to compete with skinnier women through clothes, people find a curvy woman in a flattering and tailored dress just as attractive as her thinner sisters. I have found that retro fashions make the most out of a curvy figure so I use my blog Anachronistic Style to inspire a life influenced by eras past and share my personal style with other diverse-sized women.
I used to hate the way I look. Recently I realized that even though skinny girls are pretty, so are curvy girls. Neither body type is bad, just different. I’ve been feeling so sexy and bodacious lately. Never feel bad about the way you look. We’re all beautiful, buxom, badass babes. Get stoked on it!
The lovely owner of this blog was kind enough to let me try ThighGlide out on her behalf and write a review up. So thank you for that! I was excited to try something new with hopes it would solve my dilemma once and for all!
First, let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m 5’9” and a size 18. I live in Arizona where it’s scorchingly hot right now. I’m writing this review from my point of view and from my experience trying out the product, so I’m not saying anything against or for the company or the product creators themselves.
Thigh glide’s claim is that it is a body wrap used to reduce or eliminate chafing without any creams or powders and to be your secret weapon against chafing. I was very intrigued and had to try it, since I have such a bad time with chafing if I don’t wear something between my legs to prevent it. The sample came with instructions, information, an application stick, alcohol prep pads, 3 body wraps, and a reminder charm to help you remember to remove the product at the end of the day.
I followed their instructions by using the alcohol prep pad to wipe down the area I wanted to apply the wrap and let it dry completely. It’s kind of tricky to get in the right spot at the right angle to where it won’t pull when you stand straight or walk. Plus you can’t touch the adhesive or let it touch itself or it may not work right. I took the backing off of half and placed it where i wanted it, then carefully removed the other half of the backing and smoothed it down over my skin with the application stick. It does adhere really well, but if it’s not just right, it pulls off your skin when you walk, which causes some discomfort. After I got it in the right spot and tried to walk, I noticed it wasn’t covering enough surface area where it would chafe, so I decided I’d just put two on next to each other. After walking around for a bit, I noticed my thighs still stuck together and pulled, and the thigh glide was coming up around the edges.
Inner thigh skin is pretty sensitive, so the pulling was uncomfortable (especially if you sweat at all, your thighs still stick…even stick TO the product). I couldn’t even get out of the house to try it more long term, which I had planned to do. It was just too uncomfortable and ineffective to keep wearing.
Now to the removal. OUCH. I do have a pretty high tolerance for pain, but for where it was located, and how well it stuck, it was an effort to get it off without too many horrible faces. You just need to hold the skin taut and work it back and forth while peeling off to reduce the pain. I do have a sensitivity to adhesives and I had no trouble or breaking out with this product, so that’s a plus!
I wish I had good news, but, for me, it didn’t work unfortunately. I hope your experience is different if you decide to give it a try!
