Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes

In a world that glorifies thinness and social media platforms filled with ideal women’s bodies, it’s difficult for many people to accept what they see in the mirror. 

Weight stigma is real and people of all sizes experience it, some more than others. If you are in a larger body, then you have most likely experienced being judged and discriminated against, and that is extremely hurtful and unfair. If you are in a smaller body that is more culturally acceptable, you are still very aware of the prevalent weight stigma and therefore are fearful of it. Either way, you are being harmed and would benefit from mitigating the effects on you.   

Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you are in a small, medium, large, or extra-large body…exposing yourself to people living their lives no matter their size helps create more acceptance and trains you to see beauty in all sizes. 

Since you were a child, you have been conditioned to see that beauty=thin.

The same way your grandmother probably saw that straight hair was better than curly hair…or light skin is better than darker skin. More recently, having darker skin and curly hair is seen to be just as beautiful. So it’s not a matter of fact but rather the perception of what beauty is. This perception is in your control, you can change it by re-programming your mind.  

Thankfully, there are people on social media who can help you start to see beauty in all shapes and sizes and start this re-programming process. 

By following the accounts suggested below your view of what beautiful means starts to shift. You will also start to break down old beliefs such as “I need to be thin to be fit” or “I can’t be fashionable unless I’m skinny”. 

I have curated some accounts for you to check out and follow, and with time, the algorithm will begin to show you similar accounts, and your feed will start to change the same way your perception will also.
