I’m a content creator for my Instagram and TikTok and I just recently got an email for an underwear brand that I love & wear all the time asking for a collab on my social media platforms.
I’ve always known my husband has always been uncomfortable with me posting anything related to me showing any skin, unless in a swimsuit, but didn’t think it would be too big of a deal considering I would be getting paid for it & getting free underwear from my favourite brand.
I already had accepted the offer and told the brand my sizes and told my husband about it the next morning.
He was upset and frustrated that I had accepted the offer and wasn’t comfortable with modelling in underwear on the internet. I told him that I was going to be getting paid and was only going to be in the underwear for a couple of seconds and that the underwear is very modest and not really revealing.
He still felt uncomfortable and asked me to email the company and tell them that I had changed my mind and don’t want to collaborate. I felt hurt that he didn’t seem to want me to feel comfortable in my postpartum body and be able to accept this brand that I have loved for years.
What should I do?
Here are what netizens think:
- It would’ve been ideal that you talked about it before speciallysince you knew that he might be uncomfortable, but at the end of the day it is your body and your work, also I dont get why a swimsuit is better than underwear.
- Relationships are partnerships. Of course you should talk to the other person about important. The only reason you wouldn’t talk about it is if you didn’t respect the other person or the relationship, at which stage you have to ask yourself why are you in the relationship at all.
