How I really feel about being called plus size: It's the way I am branded by the industry I work in, although it's not a term I will ever use to define myself. The fact that I am a size 14 and seen as plus size, implies that half of the population's women are ‘bigger’ than what they are 'supposed' to be. That can't be healthy for any woman’s self worth and image! I would go so far as to say that half of the population's women suffer from emotional abuse while shopping: We can't find a 'sexy' jean in our size, because chain stores simply don't accomodate women bigger than a size 14. So we always feel depressed and unworthy after leaving the changing room. This is so wrong!! There should be sizes for all different body types in all different clothing types: cup sizes, jeans, swimwear, dresses etc. Basically, body diversity should be normalised! We should not be categorising clothing in straight or plus-sizes. Why are we putting people in boxes according to the size of their bum!? Why do more curvy ladies always struggle to find 'sexy' jeans in their size?? Drop the plus! Body diversity and inclusivity should be the norm.
