When I was growing up, body positivity and acceptance were no where to be seen. Women’s magazines were filled with models that all looked the same: Caucasian, skinny and bored. That was the standard of beauty in the 90s’ and I didn’t fit in. I began to believe that if I had to change myself to be happy. I ended up with an eating disorder, skin whitening cream, and acne breakouts.
Jump forward 25 years to meet Winnie Harlow or Ashley Graham in the cover of Vogue magazine.
Accepting yourself the way you are is one thing. Find your size and dress fashionably is another. That’s when Happy Size comes handy. This fashion label has been designing modern and stylish clothes for men and women of any size for twenty years. For this fall I picked these skinny black jeans and long-sleeve stripe t-shirt. Parisian chic that is not only stylish but comfortable and will look great with high boots and heels.
