Absolutely nothing. Okay so maybe a little more than nothing. A couple of thin chicks requested details on my fit and an aggressive Police Officer slide me his number. When I say nothing I mean all of the things I thought would happen …didn’t. I’m going to assume you’re confused and explain what I mean in one sentence. No one really cared… but me.
The internet is filled with affirmations, we should go out and wear what we want despite what anyone says. Ironically I’m starting to think we are our biggest critics. You know that fat girl in the mirror who deters you from doing things that you think are dope. Yeah her. She has the ability to discourage the shit out of a bad ass outfit. If I had a dollar for every time I read “I wish, I had your confidence” I would actually buy a drink from Chipotle and give up the free water cups.
Granted the statement “I wish I had your confidence” sometimes can come off a bit shady. Most of us are familiar with backhanded compliment however I do think they have some sincerity. So many of us are praying for the elimination of self-doubt. I won’t pretend as if fat shaming doesn’t exist because it does. As a visibly fat woman I’ve had my fair share but no one has been rougher on me than I’ve been on myself. It’s hard for others to fat shame you when you aren’t ashamed of your fat. At least that’s how I see it. Long story longer we owe ourselves the confidence we “wish” we had.
That’s the end of my Brave Space talk let’s get into this look. If you know me, you know I absolutely love Pop Up Plus. I work very closely with the company as their onset stylist. The amount of time and attention they put into their new arrivals is heaven sent. As stated before I’ve sized out of junior plus. I’m ecstatic Pop Up Plus is offering real women sizes up to a 5X with their Body By Luv Collection. Super trendy, edgy and chic! Exactly what a fat girl like me needs. I REQUESTED my two piece set a little longer because I’m extra lol. Definitely check them out you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for reading.
