If you are a fashion blogger attending seasonal catwalk shows then you must have heard of the London Fashion Week’s Plus size movement that started to unfold its message last year. Taking it to another level it is not “just” celebrating curves anymore, but celebrating all kind of women, body types without discrimination. I’d like to believe that my words, my blog has other meaning than just rambling about trendy staff, showing nice images and posing around with a Celine bag (make no mistake, I’d still love to have one, though). My aim is to actually have a point (occasionally) , to inspire others, to show that women are strong, that we are worth it and we are all fabulous just the way we are – or as Suzie would say it we are all “Beauties with Plus“.

Suzie is a Hungarian plus size blogger currently following her dreams and her love in Italy, who recently has established 10 essential points that every woman should know/follow for a positive body image. Today I’d like to share them with you, to spread the words so that we inspire more and more women together all over the world.

9. Words like “fat” or “skinny” have no more importance than others like “blue-eyed” or “tall”. They are descriptive adjectives but not determining our personalities! (The whole article here)

  1. Awesome post. I found the seriousness of the content quite at variance with the pictures though 🙂

    I suppose it all comes down to the perceptions and mental yardsticks developed through our socialisation that we carry into the world.
