Happy #sundies everyone. Thought I would post a little PSA. Not sure why people feel the need to constantly remind me about my weight fluctuation. I can’t help it. My body is pretty thin, but also curvy. I’m not toned. I have lumps, bumps, rolls, and even cellulite. My weight varies from week to week. But this is just how I am. I don’t try to please anyone. I have had to learn to love my body at whatever state it’s in at any given time. Stop worrying about my weight and take a look at yourself. Learn to love yourself first, then you will have no need to try to bring down others. All bodies are beautiful. Keep the peace and embrace yourself as well as others.
Tim Gunn on Plus Size Clothing
“Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger. In my travels, I’ve been an advocate for larger women. I’ve been talking to designers, but only a half-dozen make an effort. Most say, ‘I don’t want a woman who’s a size 10 or 11 wearing my clothes.’ Well, shame on you! It’s not realistic
"You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger."
Praise Jesus and all the saints for him saying this because damn, most “PLUS SIZED” clothing is fugly.
Amen. The plus sized clothing out there is crazy and makes me just…
I’m not surprised he said this. Ever since the first season, when they’ve had to do garments for everyday people who aren’t models, there’s always one designer (at the very least) who flips out as though they’ve never in their life considered that people who aren’t a size 0 might wear their clothes. Tim always looks at them like he wants to drown them in a lake.
I hate the term “plus size”. That’s part of the problem. Why not make clothing for REAL women - who…spoiler! …come in ALL sizes! Gasp! I know! And guess what…no matter WHAT size they are…they want clothes that FIT and look GOOD. So go forth and make clothing to fit REAL people, designers, because right now, the system is broken. FIX THIS!
