This shouldn’t come as a surprise to you, but despite what fashion websites, Instagram Influencers, runway models and the like would have us believe, the average woman is a size 16-18.  Let’s let that soak in for a minute…  I, for one, am PISSED!! I am pissed at the fashion industry for making me feel fat…I am 5’2 and 155 lbs – a size 12.  I’m pissed at companies working with pretty little size 2-4 girls as influencers, average size girls are BEAUTIFUL too!! I’m pissed at fashion designers only working with models who need to eat a cheeseburger!! I am just pissed in general.

Here’s the thing, when you are looking for fashion inspiration you need to look for someone who looks like you!!! If you’re size 14 what that size 4 girl is wearing is not going to look the same on you. We are all over here thinking something is wrong with us because clothes don’t fit us right, when companies are catering to the minority of H shaped skinny chicks. What I want you to know is that It’s not YOU, it’s the FASHION INDUSTRY.  This is coming from someone who has been a size 2 to a size 12, so I understand both sides of the coin.

Today I really want you to take a deep breath and give yourself some grace.  We all wish we were the “ideal size”.  Truth is you are already beautiful and the perfect “YOU size”!! Love it, embrace it, dress it for YOU!! Stay Stylish!!

P.S. If you know of an average size Influencer (12-16 not plus size) let me know!! I want to give her and the companies that work with her props!!
