Fashion freaks say plus size is not physically healthy or flattering
“It’s not such a good thing to show plus-size because it’s not really physically healthy and not always flattering to fashion,” according to Fashion blogger Garance Dore.
That’s news to me lady.
Quotes like this simply promote eating disorders. Think I am exaggerating?
France and Italy have literally outlawed fashion rules that require models to be at anorexic weights (Amen. BTW – the US isn’t doing JACK SQUAT). What kind of world do we live in when we have to have government step in to regulate this?
The industry literally invented “size zero” to perpetuate the heroin chic style, which has now drifted down to double zero, and I am sure the triple is right around the corner. They created the need for psychiatrists to call for “warning labels” on digitally-anorexified images so we can tell the difference between a real person and a mannequin.
Further, it is pure and simple ignorance to say a plus sized woman is not physically healthy. According to fashion world standards, 98% of the female population is unhealthy by these rules. As far as women with curves being unable to flatter fashion, please, have you heard of a chick named Crystal Renn?
Fashion has their head so far up their own egos, the vast majority of designers are unable to relate to the real world. Here’s another whopper from Fashion Designer Rosemary Masic;
“We don’t make anything larger than a size 14 as I don’t want to endorse unhealthy living,” the designer told the paper. I am very passionate about life and serious about health. It is the most important thing we have and we should respect and look after our bodies. Size 16 and size 18 is not a healthy size to be.”
Listen Masic, no one has ever heard of you, and if you keep up these quotes you’ll be history before you know it. I find it fascinating that you chose a child to display your designs on your site, since it takes puberty to bring out womanly features, this kid was probably the only one that met your standards. What a crock.
If you haven’t noticed this crap fires me up. I lived it, I could have died in it, and thank god I survived it. No one is ever going to tell me that fashion industry standards are healthy, its complete and total B.S. So when I hear these arrogant asses spewing this stuff, it kills me.
Does it do the same for you or am I off my rocker?
