What is plus size? How to be a plus size model?
Yeah, I’m fat. Bet y’all couldn’t do this. Fat in our society is a word used as a weapon and recently someone commented on my post saying is ‘Fat new latest trend word ‘ confusing me enough to take it in a positive way or sarcastic. But it is what I am. Yeah, I have a mirror. I’m not an idiot. But that doesn’t mean that I’m less of a person. So if you think that you are fat oversized, welcome to my world of fat and fab. But if you don’t, then that’s ok too.
Fat people are still being looked down
People think if you’re plus size girl you can’t date or enjoy your life as the normal ones do. Why is that society accepts us the way we are or change their perspective to you’re beautiful, you’re curvy or you’re cute. It comes from a subconscious belief that fat bodies aren’t good enough and that fat people aren’t good enough. It’s unfair and it is highly inaccurate. I’ve never had a problem getting a man. I don’t believe that all plus-sized women want to be thinner and I say that because I don’t want to be thinner. I couldn’t imagine being super, super, skinny. I’ve never been super skinny. I love my curves and this is who I am and I don’t want to have to change that for anybody.
What is Plus size?
What is plus size for me it’s an industry term? It’s where I know that I am welcome and have a place to shop and if we didn’t have the label ‘plus size’ then I would continuously walk in and out of stores looking for something. It’s something that has been out there as’ plus size, you’re different, you’re a separate category’ but I’m just a style blogger that happens to be plus size. That’s who I am. I’m plus size, deal with it. It’s like, I want to rock a body-con dress that’s, like, sexy with thigh highs just like Deepika Padukon did but I can’t go out and find that in my size, it’s not easily accessible. I did not feel like I was challenged until started shopping for my wedding. Sample sizes in bridal wear are like a size0, size 12. I didn’t get to have the boutique experience that most brides get to have and it wasn’t the same. I have had concerned about being trolled on expressing opinions about plus size and their body. And they think that me existing in my skin is a cry for you to help me. I don’t need your help. The misconception is because you’re plus-sized, you need to be told how to live your life. What to do, how to live, how to feel, how to be, because something’s not right. You’re bigger than everybody else. There was a point where I’d stopped eating meat. People would say, ‘Oh are you losing weight? You look really good.’ I look good all the time! When I look at the fashion events I host and I see someone that looks like me, it means the world to me. Growing up, not seeing anybody that looked like me in fashion events pissed me off. When you don’t see anybody that looks like you, you automatically think you’re not good enough. I see so many things now and I’m like wow, I wish when I was 14, 15 and 16, that I had the things that we have now. I think it’s really important for young men and women to see representations of themselves, whether it’s racial, whether it’s size, whether it’s ability. If we continue to talk about what our bodies mean and having the best body for us and not anyone else, I think we’ll all be in a better place.
