I really like the sentiment behind it and that model is gorgeous.  But as a naturally thin person, it bothers me that we can’t lift up one body type without putting down another.  I wish they didn’t have to imply that skinny girls have no sex life, are lonely and sad, don’t have wisdom and knowledge, and aren’t amazing.  I get that they’re taking the metaphor and running with it, but I wish all types could be celebrated equally.

THIS was exactly what I needed to see.  I’ve been to 4 weddings in the past two months of very close friends, all of whom are naturally narrow hipped, tall, and thin…with big boobs to boot! 

I went to my final fitting today and came home in tears.  I originally chose my dress BECAUSE it hugged my curves.  I’m 5’6 134 and by no means over-weight, but do have ‘child bearing hips’.  I took one look in the mirror and all I could think was how large I looked.  The curves I loved before suddenly made me feel huge.  It’s like seeing only thin girls in wedding dresses suddenly made me feel less beautiful when I looked at my body in one.  And I don’t mean that offensively MademoiselleL!!

Anyway…vent over…I’m just so grateful I was able to read this tonight.

@MissDallasCowboy:  I don’t get offended at stuff like that don’t worry!  I just don’t like it when I hear or read things that make me feel bad about my body either…which the article kind of does.

@MademoiselleL:  I totally agree.  I don’t even consider myself a whale…I’m more in the middle, like a dolphin.  They’re friends with everybody so I’d swim with ya if you were a mermaid πŸ™‚
