This lifestyle blogger’s husband just wrote the most empowering letter about her body

‘This gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room’

You may have heard of lifestyle blogger Sarah Tripp, known for Sassy Red Lipstick, but this week everyone’s talking about her husband, Robbie.

The activist and author took to his Instagram to write an open letter about body-positivity dedicated to his wife – and to say it’s empowering would be a huge understatement.

‘I love this woman and her curvy body,’ he captioned a photo of the two of them on the beach. ‘As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as “chubby” or even “fat.”’

He continued: ‘Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie.’

|| I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat." Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie. For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc. Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room. Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated. There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah. || photo cred: @kaileehjudd

Addressing men who had come across the post, Tripp stated, ‘There’s nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room.’

‘Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She’s real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty.’

He then went on to address the women who were reading the post, encouraging them not to feel forced to adhere to typical beauty standards. ‘Girls, don’t ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated,’ he wrote. ‘There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah.’

The post understandably went viral, raking in over 20,000 likes on Instagram. ‘It’s so exciting to see this post getting so much attention,’ Robbie explained to Eonline. ‘It contains my favorite subjects to talk about: my beautiful wife and spreading positivity.’

Well, we’re definitely feeling empowered. Now if you’ll excuse us we’re off to eat a large slice of cake.
