Call me crazy, but I was always the girl out of my friends that was constantly worried about my weight. Heck! I don’t know why I’m talking in the past tense because I still worry about my weight! While all my friends are bragging about their size double-0 jeans and size 1 dresses, I’m squeezing my arse into size 30 jeans and size 6 dresses. It wasn’t until recently that I actually started to adore my curves and luscious body, and I am writing this because it’s all about total girl power, and I want all of you to feel at your best, even when you’re body may not be. Here are the top three reasons why I love being bigger than a toothpick.
Oversized Clothing is Bomb
The fashion industry isn’t the way it used to be back at the beginning on this millennium. People that actually have some meat on their bones can dress stylishly and still indulge in all the wondrous ways of fashion, and this is the main reason why I embrace my size. Oversized clothing is uber fabulous, and just because you’re not a size 0 doesn’t mean that you have to shop at your local department store or Good Will – although you can find some fabulous vintage clothing at the latter. My point is that you can actually get oversized clothing to accentuate your body, even though you’re not the size of a toothpick. You can look fabulous instead of frumpy because fashion designers around the world have added sizes, including oversized clothing for the real ladies of the world. It’s pretty awesome! My favourite is the Jessica Simpson collection.
Body, Booty and Bodacious
The second reason why I totally love being to enjoy oversized clothing is because I actually have a body. Okay, so I’m a teenager and I don’t want to show off myself in a way that isn’t appropriate to my age. As someone once said to me as I was analyzing myself in the mirror, commenting on my hips and booty, “You’re not fat. You’re just no longer a little girl with no shape. You’re not a young lady with curves….” It certainly changed the way that I viewed myself, and I thought I would pass this little tidbit on to you!
The third reason why I love rocking a size 6 instead of a size double-0 is because I am healthy. I eat what I want, and exercise, and well, I feel terrific. I don’t chow down on celery sticks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Instead, I eat a wide variety of foods that I enjoy, even indulging in the marvelous world of junk food from time to time. Gasp! Honestly though, I’m young, and I want to eat whatever I want, within reason, of course. I don’t want to be counting calories when I’m a teen! That’s for when I’m old, and you should feel the same way.
Embrace your fabulous curves, fab fashion and all the foods that you get to treat yourself to. Being a size 6 is more chic than an itsy bitsy toothpick. Yay for plus sized designs and fabulous oversized clothing.
