GIVE YOUR FIGURE A HUG
We are so often told that people don’t want to be subjected to our lumps, bumps, muffin tops and big bums. So much so, that we are shamed into wearing baggy clothes, restricted to jeans and an oversized t-shirt or a dress with no shape. But as a fat girl making a stand, I proclaim that I don’t want to shield my wobbly bits from the world any longer – why should we have to avoid skin tight clothes or figure hugging outfits for fear of upsetting someone else’s idea of fat girl fashion? We shouldn’t have to stick to the prescribed and expected aesthetic for plus size women; there is no shame in breaking these boundaries, putting on a slinky dress and showing off the curves that you own. And nobody, absolutely nobody can tell you that you don’t look fabulous.
