Women Hug Your Curves!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As a woman who holds proud ownership of her curves and realizes that she will never, no matter how much she uses her inversion machine or starves herself will ever be 6 ft tall and 102 lbs. Not this chick. I love food. I am short. I love fashion. And I love my curves. But it wasn’t always this way…

In this society of high fashion and low weights, it is no wonder girls and women of all ages look in the mirror and cringe, or worse. Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is all too real and rears its ugly head on a daily basis for many females. Unfortunately, not long ago, I was bullied by that bitch BDD. She tortured and tormented me from the second my still-pasty-from-sleep eyes looked in the mirror until I turned out the lights and said goodnight to my screaming stomach. Weight, diet, food, scale, and disappointment were daily thought invaders. Not a day went by that she didn’t remind me to count carbs, calories, exercise more, and eat less. I so desperately wanted to look like Nicole Richie, but my growling belly had other ideas. Something had to give.

My stomach won. And what a glorious victory it was. With a slice of pizza and a gin-n-tonic, I opened my laptop and began looking obsessively for plus size models, their clothes, their styles, their stats, etc. Then, like a strike of lightning (or maybe it was the gin), I found a fabulous magazine called Plus Model Mag. It was like Russian spies had used mind-altering spy techniques to alter my thoughts, and brainwashed me into liking my body. These women were curvy, I mean bootylicious, curvaceous, full-figured broads. And you know what, I found them to be big, bold, and absolutely beautiful. Gone were the days of wanting to see my ribs and backbone. Hallelujah! I saw fried chicken and fashion all wrapped into one.

I know you cannot turn of the switch in your brain that society has flicked in the permanent ON position. After years of struggling to maintain a “normal” to lower weight and dissecting every inch of my body in the mirror or avoiding it altogether, I gradually began to accept my body. That acceptance coupled with my passion for food, fashion, and makeup has started a beautiful relationship that is now balanced, forgiving, complimentary, and gentle.

My advice to all full-figured women out there…ditch the scale, pick up Plus Model Mag, go put on some lipstick and heels, and eat a piece of fried chicken. Be kind to yourself, respect your body, showcase your assets, and hug your curves today!
