Shaking up beauty standards long before #bodypositivity was a thing

Maybe you have heard of her- she's the plus-sized pinup icon you probably see in memes on National Nude Gardening day!

She's Hilda, and she's everyone's favorite quirky pinup queen.

Hilda is one with nature

Hilda is the star of such an amazing pinup series from years ago. It was only a matter of time before the Bare Babes community decided to come together and re-imagine some of her most iconic scenes!

Hilda was shaking up beauty standards long before #bodypositivity was a thing, and we respect her for her ability to show us cuteness and sexiness in everyday situations- with a little dash of wimsy.

One of Hilda's most impressive skills is her ability to interact with nature like a Disney princess!

We really embraced this personality trait in our first Hilda set, and we put a little twist on this vintage beauty.

Look, it's 2021, and the fact is there some "Hilda" in every one of us.

It was clear that the classic Hilda character needed to be updated to represent more women! So we didn't do 1 photoshoot, we did 3!

Hilda represents all the babes who have forgotten that we possess a special kind of beauty. She is adventurous and curious, and that is part of what makes her so darn cute!

For our second set, we embraced those traits and found a brave babe to recreate some Hilda moments at a local creek!

Hilda reminds us that there is beauty in joy. Hell, just being alive is so beautiful. Hilda doesn't have to do anything to be sexy and beautiful. She just is, and so are you.

Finally, we celebrated Hilda's quiet times. Her cozy, at home, candid moments showing her everyday life.

Who hasn't sung a silly song, fallen asleep in a chair, or warmed their buns? I know you have done at least one of these, and I bet you were adorable!

Our inner Hilda is proudly cute AND sexy- inquisitive, innocent, capable- the list goes on and on.

This project is a perfect representation of the fascinating traits that make each babe so unique and loveable. And that includes YOU.

We also did a few classic Bare Elegance-style shots for each model. I mean WOW, how hot are these ladies??

If you enjoyed our Hilda project, make sure you are a member of our VIP group on Facebook. You can become a part of our body positivity movement with over 1900 other women in the Carolinas and Georgia!

P.S. Don't forget to share this project so your friends can see the beauty in every day, too!
