Husband’s body-positive love note to his curvy wife goes viral

Posted August 4
Updated August 7

It’s a love note that’s inspiring thousands of people.

Robbie Tripp, a public speaker from California, wrote a body-positive tribute to his wife on Instagram, and the sweet post is making women everywhere swoon.

Tripp’s wife, Sarah, is a blogger, and he says her body may not end up on the cover of a magazine, but he wouldn’t change a thing.

He wrote, “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.”

|| 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

Tripp said he’d always loved curvy women, but it took growing up to realize that he was the one who really had it right.

Since Tripp shared his Instagram love note, nearly 17,000 people have clicked “like.” He posted again, thanking everyone for their support and kindness.

It’s been incredible to see the reaction from my simple post celebrating my wife and her body. So much positivity and love have come from it. Seeing men from around the world tagging their girlfriend/wife and telling her how much they love her curvy body has been amazing.

As for Tripp’s wife? She’s also a strong advocate for loving your body, no matter what size you are.

“i may HAVE fat, but i am not fat. and neither are you!” she wrote on Instagram. She told POPSUGAR she was glad her husband started such an “important conversation.”
