Day 6 of Fatshion February
I wore a perfectly acceptable dress to work today, but this is something I’ve never shown on tumblr or on my blog - my exercise gear (with bonus underarm sweat patch!).
I do two styles of dance: samba and Afro-Brazilian. I bloody LOVE it. I do both once a week, but I’ve got an Afro-Brazilian performance coming up next month (we’ll be doing maracatu, samba de roda, and the dance of the orixas), so I have a couple of extra rehearsals each week. The Boyfriend took this photo after I came home from our first run through.
I’ve only just started performing, which is pretty exciting. I’m trying to source a plus size samba bikini so I can perform samba no pé (the style you see at carnaval), but it is proving to be extremely difficult. There aren’t many fat samba dancers out there. This means I am extra determined - and extra terrified - to perform half-naked in a sequined bra and g-banger.
