Body Positivity In The Fashion Industry

Recently, there has been a huge focus on body positivity in the fashion industry, especially when it comes to plus-size individuals. As a result, there have been numerous new plus-size lines being introduced to the world.

Several huge names in the industry have all been part of the movement to include bigger sizes for their customers, including Forever 21, Calvin Klein, and even Victoria's Secret. The movement is experiencing a huge success and it has a great following behind it.

Along with the new sizes being introduced, there have also been several new campaigns that have advertised the new sets of clothes. Due to the campaigns, we all are finally able to see plus-sized models in the spotlight. One of the most inspiring campaigns came from Forever 21's new fitness line which was made especially for plus-sized individuals. Out of the numerous campaigns broadcasted around the world, Forever 21's had to be one of the most inspiring.

All of the gear that was produced had "No Days Off" printed somewhere on the piece. This little slogan shut down many stereotypes about bigger individuals and showed that not all plus-sized individuals are unhealthy and lazy.

While there has been tremendous amounts of support for the campaigns, some individuals have had their own criticism about the movement. Many individuals believe that this movement shames "skinny" people and others who don't fit in the plus-size categories. What many companies have decided to do is have a variety of models of all shapes, sizes, and colors so that nobody is left out. So far, the complaints have decreased tremendously.

It is really refreshing to see all women being recognized for their beauty, no matter what they look like.

Another argument that has been made by many companies about the campaign is that sales could possibly decrease due to plus-size models trying to sell the released product. Unfortunately, there are studies that support this claim and it is found that customers are more likely to buy clothes that have been modeled by a more petite model.

It is astounding to see how far body positivity in fashion has come. Hopefully, in the near future, there will no longer be a need for a "plus-size" label and clothes will only be labeled based on their actual measurement. While we are still so far away from finding a perfect equilibrium, at least there is a solid foundation for the movement.

It's so great to see how fashion is allowing women and men to love the skin that they are in.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
