The other day I just so happened to stumble across an album on Facebook that included pictures of me and many of the bloggers I met while in NY. The comments on the pictures and clothing choices of those pictured were pretty surprising. Comment after comment pointed out what we as plus size women, should not wear or how they thought this and that was a no-no for the plus size girl.
I have never in my life seen so many negative comments regarding someones clothing choices. It's one thing to give your opinion but to pick apart someone's outfit or comment on how they aren't "real woman" because they are not what you deem "plus size" is not only unnecessary but ridiculous! As bloggers we put ourselves out there, baring our souls, and yes sometimes our arms and midriff too, in hopes of inspiring, not tearing down! We do it in hopes of breaking the stereotype of "oh you're to big to wear that" in hopes of strengthening the belief that you can wear what you want, and be confident while doing so!
Why? Because we want to break this form of hate, criticism and overall low esteem of some plus size women, who have been scarred by their moms idea of what the fat girl is supposed to wear! We can be bold, daring and beautiful with our clothing choices! We can rock bold color, print and vertical stripes...shorts, mini skirts, or even the crop top!
I believe that if it is flattering and you feel comfortable do it!! I've always moved to the beat of my own drum! I encourage you to think about how and what you say! Just because you would not wear something doesn't mean it doesn't work for the person who is actually wearing it!
|Can we live?|
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
