We’re All Plus Size?

Love following the BuzzFeed. In addition to the lists that make me cry laughing, they’re always doing great materials addressing serious issues in a way that no one has ever done before. My newest favorite is this article here. In which two women resolve to show the difference between how a clothes plus size dress in a plus size model considered and how she wears in a normal person.

Kristin and Sheridan tell about your experiences buying clothes online, and how they feel when they receive the clothes at home.According to them, unfortunately, larger sizes are not yet a reality in most physical stores (even here in the US) and, most often, they have to resort to the internet to find what they want. The problem is that, to make your choices online, you have to give up the pieces and try to trust only in photos of models wearing the clothes. But the plus size models are unlikely to reflect the reality of the woman more plump and the purchase of a new play that should make the girls feel beautiful and happy with themselves, have exactly the opposite effect, playing the self-esteem down there.

The way Kristin and Sheridan deal with the subject in the article is funny and sarcastic, but demonstrates a serious problem that concerns not only the women considered plus size.

Have you ever stopped to think about how we’re all “plus size” in the eyes of the fashion? You dressing 40 or 42, enters the sites to buy some clothes and give into what? A model wearing 36. Are you going to tell me that the clothes will come home and will stay as it is in the template?

I 40, I’m not too voluptuous, never had much chest, a lot of butt, but today I’m happy with the body I have. Still, I confess that, many times I identified more with the plus size models of sites than with the skinny models that use 36. And that always makes me question: what percentage of the population actually identify with the skinny model? Of course there are people who will identify thin. But where’s the diversity, Brazil?

Proof of this is that another matter here. This lady, the Australian model Stefania Ferrario, launched a protest in your Instagram recently, telling him about your frustration to be labeled as a plus size model. Detail: she wears 38/40, people!! According to her, the label itself is a way to play women down, making them feel different from the other and, therefore, less beautiful.

I believe that, no matter your size, you can be and feel beautiful anyway. What I wanted is that most brands share that thought and reflect more women and its beauties several more real. So, in the near future, maybe Kristin and Sheridan may have more luck in your shopping websites. And so do we.
