Plus-size is better than no-size!
So many women today are still fixated on society’s supposed standard of beauty. This can mean a lot of things, from clear, smooth skin, to voluptuous hair, but no other aspect of beauty is focused on than the size of the woman in general – in other words, how much the woman weighs.
After all, the weight of a woman has a direct correlation to their overall body shape and since the body encompasses everything in a human being, it makes sense that there would be a lot of emphasis on the body and the weight behind it.
But what so many fashion magazines portray in the publications is not just something that woman are unlikely to achieve, but something that women should not even attempt to achieve in the first place. These models are often way too skinny and bare-boned, which can have some sexual appeal, but not as much as you might think.
For example, when men look at a woman, they are much more likely to go for a woman with some meat on their bones rather than one who looks like they skip every other meal. Part of this has to do with the fact that men want genuine women and most “skinny” women can come across as the opposite of that – these women are either looked upon as being too good to be true, or in some cases just looked upon as women who care way too much about their own body image to actually care for their partner.
While many men fantasize about a skinny super model, the reality is that they actually want to settle down with someone who isn’t so flawless when it comes to beauty standards, especially if the men aren’t near or at that level of flawlessness themselves.
So when you look at these “standards of beauty”, keep in mind that being ultra-skinny is not something that you should strive for necessarily. Now we aren’t saying it isn’t a good idea to go to the gym and get some exercise, but it should be more for your overall health rather than trying to lose weight, especially if you are just trying to lose weight to impress a romantic interest of yours. A man (or woman) should love you for who you are, and so if they only become interested in you because you have lost weight or catered to society’s unrealistic beauty standards, then they are not the right person for you.
So don’t be afraid to show off your body, no matter how big you may be. It is who you are, and you are just as beautiful as any other woman out there, in your own unique way. In fact, we would even argue that being true to yourself is a lot more beautiful than someone who puts all her time and effort into achieving the type of skinny body that is often seen in the fashion industry. Although some people may largely view plus-size women as being less beautiful, just know deep in your heart that they are dead wrong, and that genuine beauty truly comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
