These holidays, my son’s French in-laws came to visit. They’re lovely people, though they do have a tendency to enjoy our swimming pool “au naturel”.
I’ve started taking nude selfie videos of me stepping out of the shower or doing yoga in the living room. Sometimes a video reminds me of how my plus-size body falls short—ripples of cellulite in places I wish were smooth. Sometimes it feels like a reclamation: My body is functional and powerful.
