For many years we were sold the idea that being a woman with a voluptuous shapely figure was some what wrong and shameful, it is that mentality that inturn breeded a generation of women with body image issues infact it did not only end with body image issues but impacted their self esteem that led to constant self-doubt, self-criticism, social isolation and nagging insecurities.
And in 2016 one would assume things are different because we are a more urbane and informed society, but there is still no rapid change in how the image of curvaceous women are viewed, adulated and most importantly accepted.
Being a plus size woman in modern society is a continuous struggle but in spite of that, there are women out there who are dedicated in promoting positive perceptions about plus size women through self love and fashion, by proving to the world that being curvaceous does not limit or prohibit anyone from living their best life but it actually makes it little bit interesting.
Therefore i salute these plus size bloggers for being courageous, confident and beautiful in a world that promotes mediocrity and the none-existent, unattainable idea of perfectionism.
.What a time to be alive!!!!
