Sari Tradition

Without blouse – A kick back against colonialism

Whatever country men live in, the majority have a somewhat unhealthy appreciation of the female body because we live in a capitalist and patriarchal society where things are to be possessed. Women for the most part have been chattels in many countries, slaves and baby makers for the men who owned them.

India as a matriarchal civilisation was spared this tradition until midway through the British occupation when they decided that because women in England had no rights, Hindu women should also have no rights. With stroke of a pen they passed a law disinheriting women of their wealth and social status and telling men that they had all the power.

No Underwear

And should it be a problem?

Some people think that going without underwear is a taboo and an act of indecency, however it’s so easy to forget unless underwear it’s a feature of your outfit. Unless one’s skirt is particularly short and you happen to bend over in someone’s view or sit in view with your legs apart, no one is likely to notice and honestly its nice not to have panty lines and sometimes no lines in your skin at the end of the day.

Going braless in some societies can be more problematic if you have bigger boobs or wear revealing tops but society is moving on and going braless is more socially acceptable. My girlfriends thought I

Fashion

Flavours in times of of change

Published on: 2 Nov 2014, updated, 2 Nov 2018

Fashion changes by the season and to a large extent is driven by the marketing division of the fashion industry, but it’s really an age-old phenomenon that’s probably existed since before we wore clothes and is inspired by people’s sense of ascetics and comfort.

In some ancient cultures, fashion is irrelevant as people wear traditional costumes although even within those cultures, there is room for subtlety to express better quality, greater comfort and social status. To a large extent the idea of fashion has driven the clothing industry since it began and today it has become something of a monster as the fashions change from

The Mini Skirt

A freedom and celebration of legs

Tumblr Image

Way back during the Roman era it was the men who wore miniskirts and because it was colder in Scotland, the Scotsman wore kilts. For the modern woman the age of the miniskirt developed back in the 1950s as a new sense of freedom evolved perhaps echoing the sheer and translucent gowns of the flapper era.

As a baby and as babies still do I was told that when I learned to walk, I had a natural aversion to clothing and mum often told tales of me at bath time running naked and when I learned to dress myself or perhaps I should say and dress myself, I would often

Hair is Beautiful

Increasing numbers of women quit shaving

We all love the hair that grows on our heads and we spend a fortune over a lifetime looking after it. Some people even spend small fortunes trying to retain hair when nature decides otherwise, but then there are varying aspects to body hair.

We have some insight from our history books that the Egyptians and Romans extended personal grooming from basic cleanliness to various hairstyles to the trimming of beards and other ascetics like plucking eyebrows and removing undesired here from other parts of the body.

There is a wide variance between peoples in terms of how much body hair individuals may have. The actual amount is determined by body chemistry, inheritance and

The Protocols of Underwear

Should I wear or not wear undies?

In the modern world we are introduced to underwear as babies and most parents wear underwear because it’s been ingrained and they consider it their moral duty. But since it becomes habitual at such an early age, many people do not even think about it and instead devote their thoughts, energy and money into deciding what underwear is practical, fashionable or suitably seductive.

We must remember that underwear is a modern phenomenon, in ancient times like over 100 years ago the bra was a novelty item and an accessory for the well-heeled fashionistas. But while Victorian women who more often more abortus than a bra to make their boobs look appealing never bothered

Modest is Not Hottest

Ideas about growing up, conformity and fashion for girls

Eye candy

Growing up in our materialistic world is a challenge and many the many self esteem issues so many suffer from stem back to those moments of comparison with others, in particular the unrealistic magazine and makeup images of what you should look like.

The fashion industry promotes the body beautiful with shorter skirts, lower necklines, bigger busts, thinner legs, perfected eyebrows, and a pencil thin waistline. Girls are being constantly told exactly how to look and how to be hot, to be desired, and sexy mostly by males.

Our world is very elitist and this is mostly to do with basic survival needs, like more money

Uneven Breasts

No two breasts are identical

The alternatives here are generally to live with the unevenness or to have surgery

Uneven breasts are common and the typical amount of unevenness of most women’s breasts is usually concealed under clothing and a good bra provides camouflage although it may have unpleasant consequences later in life. Most unevenness is unnoticeable unless naked and it’s rarely a health problem.

The size and shape of breasts will change over time as one passes into adulthood, menstruation and having children. The unevenness rarely affects milk supply or the ability to lactate. But no one really knows why breasts sometimes develop unevenly, but these are some recognised causes and remedies:

1. Hormonal changes or

Body and Self

How we see ourselves and each other

Beauty the way God made us and the vehicle of our existence. A Hegre Art Image

We live in an age of political correctness and a great deal of confusion about who we are in for a great many reasons. Yet by and large we have come to identify ourselves as being a combination of our physical body, our mind and even spirit for those who believe or perceive.

When we think about our body self, it is really about how we perceive ourselves and how we identify ourselves. When a public official asks our identity, we give our name and governmental record number. When a non-official person asks who

What is Sexy?

A symptom of health and vitality

I know I am sexy, I love to enjoy and share my own sexiness, but it does not mean that I am being sexual or inviting sexual attention.

The consensus of many dictionaries defines sexy and sexiness as a person or a something that is considered pleasing or attractive in a sensual or sexual context. This is a perception existing only in the mind of the person who is perceiving. Sexy can also be something cool like new or nice car as cool has become a by-word that can also mean sexy.

Any shape or thing in nature can be seen as sexy because what is sexy is defined in the mind
