Whats in a size? - MissLJBeauty

Whats in a size?

So I have been working on my diet journey blog posts and I was googling a few things and came across this 

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/07/size-16-mannequin-flat-stomach-debenhams and then I seen this 


I was shocked with some peoples response to this! I'm calling them trolls! I can't believe people in this day and age think it's ok to critique someone because of body size! As you will find out I've been a size 22 and down to 6/8 now I'm a 8/10 and happy with that in a way( long story) 

Now I had to be measured for my wedding dress and I'm not ashamed to state my sizes 

Bust 36ins
Under bust 29
Waist 26
Hips 37

Now this according to the above means I am inbetween a 8 to 12. I buy all my clothes in either a 8 or 10. So I have no clue about the above but I think this is wrong! 

Now all I ever wanted in life was to be a size 16 as I think it's the perfect size after been a 22 it was my dream and goal and if I'm honest it was a life ambition for along time! 

I have to wonder how many size 16 people look like this. I know everyone is different but I like a bit of a curve in the body it looks nice! I have a big chest and I wish I could swap for this mannequins chest! Why is the world criticizing this size for being big? It's average! 

The more I look at the above the more I think this looks like me! Why are we judging people for this I think the sexiest girls in the celeb world are khloe and Kim kardashian the stunning kelly and holly ! Not model size but slim girls who face constant nastyness for being "fat" so how are the rest of us ment to live? Can anyone else see how this can influence young children to diet? And have unreal expectations of there body some people are not ment to be a size 4 and some are not ment to be a size 22
We are different 

How many of us would be delighted to wake up looking Like any of these women ? 
Now the stunning Chantelle got a doing in the press lately for have a few extra pounds! Or as I like to call it being a normal weight for someone who has a baby! She looks stunning! Let the girl eat ! 

Now we as girls are our own worse enemy. I know I dress for other girls and not my man ( I don't think he would notice if I left the house In a onesie). We are a critical bunch and very hard to please but I think it's time to give everyone a break for goodness sake if I want oreo cake I'm eating it! 

I have friends who are a range of sizes and I couldn't careless they are as stunning on the outside as they are on the inside! No matter if they are a 8 or 38 ! I'm lucky that on my wedding day I will have 5 stunning girls walking besides me! And I couldn't careless what there dress size says my girls are stunning and have looked stunning to me even when they think they are looking rubbish! 

Now this is a bit of a ramble I know but I got quite annoyed when I read trolls saying size 16 people are "fat" there idea of fat is someone's idea of thin! Remember that it's what's in the inside that counts! No matter what, if your a bad person inside that's what matters not what size of dress your buying!!! 

What do you think of this issue! Let me know !

  1. Amazing, inspirational and honest post.
    Great to read and I couldn't agree more xxx

    1. thanks huni I was worried about posting this but I am so mad about it all xxx

  2. I totally agree. I think the media influences so much. I feel so bad for young girls growing up in this era of superficial beauty. I feel as long as you're healthy and fit, your size shouldn't matter!
