I’m a huge supporter of women loving their bodies, much like the Dove campaign For Real Beauty , Jessica Kane of Fatshion Chic and Skorch Magazine has done just that – she loves her body and helps other women accept theirs thru sharing her love of fashion. Just because you have curves doesn’t mean that you should look frumpy! Hold on to those curves girls, love yourself, value yourself and in the mean time get into some cute clothes that will make you feel good about yourself and show off your assets. As women we should never hide ourselves, our bodies or our personalities our female ancestors worked too hard for us to have rights, so use them to your advantage! Thanks Jessica for reminding me to love myself!
1/3 rd of women wear a size 16 or larger some even estimate it to be 1/2 of women who wear 14+. Do you ever wonder why all the SALE items are XS ?! Hmmmmm Ya, that’s WHY!
The diet industry makes 40 BILLION dollars a year off peoples insecurities about their bodies. Just think of what we could use 40 billion dollar with instead of lining corporations pockets.
More people are afraid of being “FAT” then dying… REALLY NOW ?! Embrace those curves, life is too short – I personally like being curvy,happy and NOT dying.
Really what is this NUMBER on our LABELS ? There is NO standard for sizes in the U.S. A 14 can really be a 10 an 4 can be a 8, all depending on the label. DON’T BECOME A SLAVE TO A NUMBER that has NO meaning!
The Average woman wears a size 12-14, but once again don’t get caught up on these ‘numbers’.
Most of us are not one size fits all into an hourglass, some of us are pear shaped, round, straight, and that is ok! But, realize that most clothing companies make clothes designed for a specific figure, which might not match with yours, so don’t get discouraged if something doesn’t fit right – IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT!
The question remains, why is the industry not catering to REAL sized women ?! Why are we labeled PLUS sized when we are really the norm ?! Do you want your daughters to grow up with the same body issues you have ?! I sure don’t! So embrace yourself, your daughters will see this and the impact will be profound.
We should stand up and voice our opinions to fashion companies, clothing makers and the industry at large.
Don’t become another FAT girl… feel good about yourself and just be YOU!
Thanks for reading my ramblings,
