Here’s a little history:
Growing up, I was totally the fat girl who was taller than everyone in class, and wore a sweatshirt and baggy jeans every day. I hung out with the “mean boys” and didn’t have a boy even interested in me until 9th grade. I was totally massacred by my classmates about my weight until… well, I’m out of high school, so until high school. ;)
As we stand today, I have an average(-ish?) body type, definitely not a rail by any means… I’m pretty well off upstairs and, after playing soccer for 10 years, I’ve got legs that could kill. Literally.
Anyway, to the point. I really am a powerful believer in the “fashion’s not just for the skinny bitches” religion – whatever religion that is. I was browsing Too Fat for Fashion and stumbled upon this quote from the beautiful Jennifer Hudson:
“I have the height of a model, the breasts that people pay for and the lips that everybody wants, so why should I change? I wouldn’t change myself for anything or anybody. That will never happen.”
I wanted to share that with you because, even if you’re not a girl with some “fluff”, it reminds us all that we’re totally hot, no matter the size. Whatever that number on the back of your dress is – forget it, it’s just counting the decibels of hot you radiate. ;)
