One of the final hurdles the body positivity movement has to jump is the notion that not only is it okay to be fat, it is actually okay to look fat. We are bombarded with floaty dresses and tunic tops to hide our rolls, when in reality a good dose of VBO never hurt anybody! Visible Belly Outline (or VBO) is exactly what it says on the tin: when the outline of your stomach is showing through your clothing. Before the last couple of years, it was used as a negative descriptor; “you can totally see my VBO in this top!”. But as we body positive goddesses are prone to doing, we have taken the term and flipped it completely on its head. Flaunting your VBO has become a political statement and a fat middle finger at societal standards for beauty. This fierce group of gorgeous gals prove that you don’t have to follow any rules to be an absolute bombshell.
So there you go, it just shows that you don’t have to be any one type of body to show off your midriff and revel in your rebellion! Summer is on it’s way, so ladies, crack out those crop tops and show some skin!
