Curve Watch is a body positivity movement launched out of St. Louis, Missouri that’s meant to inspire and empower people everywhere.
This movement is bout finding confidence, well-being and loving the skin you’re in. It’s about not limiting or withholding your happiness because you feel that your body makes you unworthy.
Many people think body positivity is bout rocking your FUPA with confidence and wearing whatever you want. And, that very well may be a part of it.
But, body positivity and Curve Watch is also about having a healthy mindset in the midst of society’s hostility towards people who are overweight or who are just different otherwise.
Body positivity doesn’t mean not achieving holistic health goals, either. It means self love and that every body is a good body. Curve Watch is here to promote that.
