The Plus Size Woman

Jul 18, 2008
Over the last fifty years or so, the perception of what constitutes a beautiful woman has been very heavily influenced by Hollywood and countless glossy and trendy magazines. Tall, slim and elegant has been the standard by which we have all been brainwashed into believing was the norm. Nurtured by the media and made famous and rich by the public, leggy models with virtually no flesh on their bones have been lauded as the beautiful people.

The truth is that these stick-like creatures are not the norm. Indeed, many of them struggle to keep their weight down to the "required" level and resort to many dubious and downright dangerous practices in order to keep fitting in. It's time to change the way we see ourselves and start realizing that people come in all shapes and sizes and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, not at the whim of Hollywood and glam magzines.

Plus size women should celebrate their curves and feel happy in their skin, they are beautiful and should relish the fact that they are the most feminine of all women. However, very often plus size women struggle to come to terms with their particular kind of beauty and go to ridiculous lengths to try and counter their natural feminine state.

One of the reasons for this seems to be the lack of great looking and trendy clothing and many women who wear plus size clothing can have a hard time getting stylish clothing in the bigger sizes. Luckily for them, with the introduction of online shopping on the Internet, the wide selection available to plus-size ladies and plus-size teenagers has expanded enormously. Quite a lot of online stores carry a limited range but more and more are focussing exclusively on plus size women's clothing.

Plus size clothing exclusively for women is now widely available in sizes fourteen and over. This type of clothing is often known as "Women's Sizes" and can usually be found in a department of their own or possibly in a specialty boutique store that exists solely for females who wear plus size clothing. Plus size clothing is normally available in number sizes 14,16,18,20, etc or with the letter X, which means extra large. Plus size brands utilize this selection with a range of numbers 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, and 6X. Somtimes clothing that goes above size 24 or 3X are referred to as "Super Size".

So, come on you beautiful women, start showing off your curves, not trying to hide them. Live your life as nature intended and make the world a more joyous place.
