Talking about our bodies is a sensitive issue for most women. It certainly is for me. I have a love-hate relationship with my body but most of the time it verges on hate. I cannot be satisfied or comfortable with what I’ve got. I’m not alone in feeling like this. Everyone has hang ups. I’m too fat, too skinny, my boobs aren’t big enough, my boobs are too big. These are just some of the thoughts that go round our heads. We all know this isn’t healthy but we still do this. We are surrounded by images of women with perfect bodies in the media, especially in the Instagram age which just reinforces the notion that we aren’t perfect.
Thankfully, this is changing. Women of diverse body types are being used in advertisements and runway shows. The body positivity movement hashtag is trending. It is now ok to not be stick thin. In fact, women with curves are being celebrated. Just look at Ashley Graham, Lizzo, or plus sized figurehead Tess Holiday. Even at Rihanna’s new Fenty show, women of various sizes were used to show off the singer’s latest designs. Even disabled models were used. Of course this is still in the minority of designers and advertisers but times are changing.
