Good Morning my Curvy Divas,
Today I am back with another topic of the day. As a plus size woman, seeing sayings like real women have curves empower me. The only thing is that I see a lot of underlying connotations that women on the smaller side of the plus size community are somehow.......not as real?
Visit any plus size store's fanpage on Facebook and you will almost always see someone saying you guys need REAL models to model your clothes as if women from the size 10-16 are not good representatives of the Plus Size Community.
Why as plus size women do we always find things wrong with one another? I have seen bloggers angry about other bloggers turning their plus size blogs into weight loss blogs, downing other bloggers choice of clothing, angry because they don't feel that people are "keeping it real" , and a host of other things I have seen in the blogosphere.
We are all here for one purpose...to empower women that look like us and let them know that they are not alone in the struggle to find hot items in our size. Just because someone is smaller than you doesn't mean that they are any less of a REAL woman. It's about their comfort level....I am not comfortable at any more than a size 16 and my goal size would be a size 12-14. By society's standards this is STILL plus size (tho some beg to differ). I read all kinds of fashion blogs and just because someone wears something that I wouldn't doesn't give me the right to talk negatively about what they are rocking. Everyone interprets fashion differently that's why everyone has their own blogs to share their take on fashion. If everyone looked the same we would all be very bored.
What do you think about women on the smaller size of the plus size community? Do you think they are not real representations? Why or why not?
Until Next Time,
