National Plus Size Appreciation Day does not just say, but really shouts to people that beauty is a concept that cannot be measured by weight. Many men around the world appreciate curvaceous female forms, it’s obvious! But sometimes girls face hate, aggression or even bullying. The task of society is to speak out against bullying.
National Day was first celebrated in 2017, but its origins are much earlier. So, for a long time in fashion magazines there were photos of only fragile models wearing XS or S sizes. It took a long time for Plus Size models to grace the covers, but it turned out! Today, such girls are in demand and popular.
The holiday also raises the problems of self-esteem in adolescents. When a young girl does not have a figure with a thin waist, but sees such girls in all commercials and magazines, destructive processes are launched. Often girls lose weight beyond recognition, suffer from anorexia and bulimia, use various drugs for weight loss … In some cases, stories end fatally.
We must show the whole world that all people are different: weight, height, skin color do not affect beauty, and even more so they cannot be considered a departure from beauty standards (it simply does not exist!). Join the movement in your city or organize your own. Rest assured, like-minded people are concentrated in every area!
Did you know that:
- being overweight is not synonymous with illness. Most obese women have amazing health;
- plus size people are not gluttons, they usually eat exactly the same amount as people with smaller body parameters;
- dissatisfaction with one’s body is inspired by marketing, weight loss products, etc.
How to celebrate
Put an end to unfounded stereotypes – gather understanding people around you, organize various events that talk about problems! Attend a fashion show with Plus Size models, take beautiful pictures and share on social networks.
