Perth's very own pinup queen, burlesque artist, producer, & blogger.
Think about a pinup girl. Many images are conjured in my mind, a glamorous lady, elegant, red lips, victory rolls, and beautiful clothing. Poor posture is not on this list; while there are many people who suffer from back disorders and are unable to have to have perfect posture, it is about making the best with what we have. For the rest of us stand up straight!
In a photo shoots poor posture is very evident, it usually makes us look nervous, and unsure of what we’re doing. A pinup girls needs to be confident, even if you don’t feel it, fake it til you make it! I feel when I actively improve my posture I do feel more confident, and more ready to face whatever the world has to throw at me that day! It’s not just out mind that is aiding by having a good posture, but also our physicality. By standing properly, we prevent causing back pain/issues; we don’t weaken other parts of our body, and so much more!
Saying this all is much easier than putting into practise, I do not possess a perfect posture, but I believe it, like the rest of me is a constant work of trying to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be.
