Thoughtful Thursday || Shapes and Sizes

By Shimmerofpink @shimmerofpink
Hellooo shimmers,
Size of models, in magazines and celebrities is constantly talked about and how there should be more diversity of shapes and sizes being promoted. I was so pleased when I noticed the introduction of curvy models in the fashion section of the Tv morning show "This Morning". They had curvy models showing different styles that suited different shapes. Its real people who watch the show so in my opinion it is only right that they should do real people fashion, rather than super thin models all the time.
I also read recently the some high street stores had introduction of curvy manikin models in their shops. This is great because it helps to see what different styles suit curvier figures rather than clothes being on flat chested, no hips or bum. However there are people who are thin and so we need to remember to keep a mixture.
I also recently watched an interview with girl pop group who were reuniting and they talked about how they used to wear leggings and a jumper, basically comfy clothes that they had in their wardrobe where as now what they wear is really scrutinised, they have to make so much effort and they said that takes more work than preparing the singing and choreography for the tour!
We shouldn't be basing our looks around the media, they are ruining the youth the positivity. I love being curvy but have only just learnt to accept it? That should be the case we should be able to love our bodies however they look but the indirect pressure the view that everyone should be slim, it's just not possible.
Especially when it is summer and we all want to look great in bikinis, it is important to find style that suit your shapes. Allow clothes to suit you, don't try to fit into clothes that don't suit you, or try to fit into the wrong sized clothes...may sound odd to some but I know people who refused to buy bigger than a 10 even though they were a 12/14.
Be confident in the way you are, I have grown to love my curves even if it took a few years. Also some fake tan definitely helps my confidence during the summer!
