Mind the Curves is a fashion and lifestyle blog for ladies with curvy bodies living in South Africa.

It is written by the Girl in the Pearls,  a professional journalist, editor and content strategist based in Cape Town. She cares very deeply about the topic of body positivity. For a long time it’s something she wanted to write about, and it seemed like a very good idea, until it evolved into something that involved having her pictures taken, which is much easier said than done when you can’t take yourself seriously and like to pull funny faces and make silly noises very much.

Thank you for joining her on this journey. She hopes, together, that we can learn to love and rock what we got.

To get in touch, please mail me on mindthecurvesza@gmail.com.

    • This is actually genius.

      Meg, you’d make an excellent style assistant / personal shopper. I am often stuck in the rut of always wearing the same styles and being convinced that only certain things look good. You could really help people like me!

  4. Beautiful blog! I love the angle of body positivity, given there’s so many people that have issues in that regard.

    I can identify, also, because for a while, I had those issues. Thanks for talking about issues that really mean something!
