i am sick of the term “curvy”. i am sick of all women over a size ten just being LUMPED together in this group. i hate that curvy has come to mean, essentially “big tits, big ass, small waist” and that because of this, fashion advice for these so-called “curvy” women can be summed up in one bite sized tidbit: “belt it!”
do they not realize that there are different KINDS of curvy? and that for some of us? belting a dress winds up making us look EVEN HEAVIER because HEAVEN FORBID curvy doesn’t automatically equate to “hourglass” across the board? and that with a big ass and a sizeable chest sometimes little weight in the middle is required TO HOLD EVERYTHING UP? and that “dressing up your curves” can often result in feeling massively uncomfortable because it often requires SPANX or some other modern torture device. just so we can all look as “put together” as the ladies of the cast of mad men. eff that.
i’m just sick of it. i dont want to wear things that are high waisted and tight and “hold everything in”. i want low waisted pants with room around my stomach so i can eat. i want to wear oversized men’s shirts and leggings and moccassins for the rest of my life so that i can breathe and enjoy my life! i want it there to be a middle ground between “frumpy grandma” and “sexy secretary” when it comes to dressing myself. i want to be able to walk into the plus size section of a store and not get side-ways glances from the other women as if i don’t belong there.
everyone is different. i know. but i feel like the term “curvy” gets thrown around a lot when talking about woman with bigger than average bodies or bigger lumps and bumps than the rest of the population and its massively uncool.
I am kind of super excited for this.
1. looking at the pictures from coachella this weekend, it appears that it was attended mostly by refugees from 1994. well done, Los Angeles hipsters. you all look like my nightmares.
2. fur is always big, but i think that the premieres of both “game of thrones” and “mob wives” last night might be beckoning a new trend: SUMMER FUR.
