I was reading the newspaper this morning and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that the Gigi and Bella Hadid’s cousin has decided to embrace the families love for modelling as a PLUS SIZE model. I looked at her and thought there is no way she is PLUS size, over my dead body.
Turns out that size 12 + is considered plus size now. OH MY GOD. What is actually wrong with the world. I am a size 12 both top and bottom and I’m bloody proud of it too! I’m curvy (in all the right places) but for no second did I ever think of myself as a plus size woman.
Honestly, I just cannot believe it! It really grinds my goat things like this, yes she’s promoting herself as happy in her own skin but what the media don’t realise is that by branding someone who is a size 12 plus size that your giving them a label and potentially a complex!
Underweight, normal weight, overweight WHATEVER, it doesn’t matter as long as you are comfortable in your own skin. I just hope young girls who come across stories like this don’t feel rubbish about themselves because they have been given a label.
