This is the most accurate post I’ve seen on tumblr

You are standing wrong. I say this as a massage therapist who works with people’s bodies all day: women are taught to stand wrong. Since the 50’s, pictures of women have been posed with their feet tilted to the side, knees locked to minimize the natural knobby shape of the knee, and sway-backed to stick their asses out for “perkiness” or whatever.
That is bad for your everything, and causes weakness in the core muscles which tighten and flatten the stomach.
The cure: feet pointing directly forward, put your hand on your tailbone. Tilt your pelvis until the tailbone is straight up and down. This will cause your knees to bend very slightly. It makes a huge difference for back and knee pain, and will make your tummy flatter with no sit-ups or working out at all.

THANK YOU

I had a feeling my strangely giant stomach and spinal weirdness had to due with posture

*And At Last I’ve Seen The Light plays in the distance*

Ken Russel’s Last of the Teddy Girls

"Russell scouts the streets of post-war London and takes both candid and posed shots of young girls dressed in the classic teddy girl uniform: blazers, trousers and ‘manly’ haircuts. It was one of the first of its kind as portraying the youth culture which, in the 1950s, was just getting underway." TRIBU Magazine Article
