Recently, I had a conversation with a colleague talking about how society classifies women as curvy, plus size, or fat. The argument was that some women who classify themselves as curvy and plus size are really overweight and not healthy. So I thought about this statement and was slightly bothered….. because none of these words we use identifies who I am, just what you see. It’s mainly what society created to nicely classify women who are not part of the “skinny” club. Also, there are many “skinnys” who are underweight and not healthy.
My thought is you can be CURVY and/or PLUS SIZE and/or FAT and SKINNY and/or UNDERWEIGHT and we ALL are still “GLAM”.
Do you think this is true? As a plus size black women , I agree the black/latin males embraces curves more than the white male community. A few of my closest white friends are overly obsessed with being the perfect “Barbie” to keep there…
I was sitting here thinking about how was the “plus size” classification derived. When we see a SiZE 6, I don’t state these are “skinny” sizes. I wish I had a meeting with the fashion gods to change the term “plus size”. Are we happy with women who wear ‘double digits” classifying them as “plus size”. Am not! I wish we didn’t have to bucket sizes 10 and up as “plus size”. Designers need to just embrace sizes and create clothes for ‘everyone” and classify as a size not term.
At least the curvy revolution have started with “curvy” body forms. Recently, two Cornell students developed a plus-size dress form with more accuracy than ever before, allowing designers to accomodate larger body types.
Yes! The Curvy Revolution has started… now if I could work on changing the classification to a “size” that would be great…. but not in this lifetime.
Could you imagine being able to select the hottest shoes from a vending machine. Having instant access to the hottest shoe designers, looks, and styles. I would be tormented by so many to choose from but wouldn’t it be awesome …. now we know this is surreal.
However, If this was the vending machine …..
These would be my FAB SHOES I would like to see…now I am trendy classy loving simple but fierce.
