hoc verum est

LOVE this:

Do you see it?

I'm going to start lobbying for a "Realistic Fits" section in clothing stores.  It sounds a lot better than 'Plus Size' or 'Women's'.  I'd shop the heck out of a Realistic Fits section!  What the hell does Plus mean anyway?  Body Plus a butt? Body plus a chest?  Body Plus thighs?  Not only does it sound better and more welcoming, I think it would make people consider about the opposite: Unrealistic Fits.  Striving to be a size 0 or 2 if you're not born that way is unrealistic.  Squeezing into an outfit because you think it'll make you look good if you're wearing cool clothes is unrealistic.  Giving up yogurt and cheese and ice cream and avocados and beer and ribs and half-and-half is unrealistic! 

I love my realistic body. xoxo

  1. That is definitely a good idea... unfortunately realistic fits are hard to find.
