Hello Baby Bubba :)
This blog post is going to be about news, and also I am going to try to add in a bit of self esteem help. Im not the best person to be giving advice on this kind of stuff, but whatever. Im gonna try!
Okay, so it has recently been proven that the sales of clothing that is advertized by ‘size zero women’ or stareotipical models, have been dropping. People have been paying allot more attention to the kinds of ads with the women that are more like eveyone else. This is really bringing to attention how the skinny little models make girls feel.
“We found that the way the picture of the perfectly shaped model was used was very important in determining a positive or negative effect on women’s self-perception,” Ansons told the Daily Mail.
When teen girls… encluding myself, see these beautiful women who look like one of their legs are the size of one of my arms, it makes us feel bad about ourselves. We feel like you have to be skinny to be beautiful. This is finally being brought to people’s attention that this is a really big deal! Girls my age, are starving theirselves to look like the ladies in the catalogs. Its desgusting really.
So people are starting to add more ‘normal’ sized women, and teens into the calalogs, and also on the catwalk. This is really bumping up the sales, and the self esteem. I really think that this is amazing how people can make that big of an impact just by looking at a magazine. But over all, I am glad that they are finally thinking ab out this kind of stuff, and working hard to fix it.
Its stareotipical that skinny women are more beautiful. This is a big load of nonsense. You are beautiful no matter what size you are.. beauty is determined by how you act, and what is within you.
I dont really know if I was of much help for building up self esteem.. but there are many sites that you can go to to help you. I think that the best ones are the teenadvice sites, selfesteem2go, and definately the because i am a girl campaign.
Check out these sites, if you want to get a little more help.
