It’s no secret that we’re not all built the same. Even in 2018, social media outlets and fashion magazines are still pushing an unrealistic body image.
Is it just me, or does every Instagram model look the same? Big lips, blonde hair, small waist, generous coat of Loving Tan sunless tanner (which is actually amazing), wearing white and holding up peace fingers. Approximately five app photo filters applied. Post and repeat.
I’m not here to shame it. It is what it is, but how can we celebrate individuality when we’re all expected to look the same?
Don’t get me wrong, the way women are depicted for the purpose of modeling clothing has progressed beautifully over the last 10 years.
With companies like American Eagle refusing to touch up the women that model their intimate Aerie line, normal, healthy women are finally able to see what the pieces will really look like on.
Their website is refreshing and beautiful, and they should be applauded for it.
We live in a world where anything over a U.S. women’s size 10 is considered “plus size”. I’m not sure who came up with that scale, because a 10 is quite an average size to be, but we’re seeing more and more manufacturers cater to it.
Yoga pants are no exception. There are some incredible manufacturers of yoga pants and activewear out there that understand women do not come from the same mold, no matter what social media might have you think.
In this review, I’ve tried and tested some of the best plus size yoga pants available.
My favourite are the Bombsheller Badass pants. They hug your curves, fuel your confidence and fit like a dream. Plus the name is awesome 😉
