Between the phrases "thinspiration", "fat is the new skinny", and "real women have curves", there exists the body of every women. Very rarely are we content with our bodies. Most of us see only our flaws and live in an eternal 'the grass is always greener on the other side". These phrases don't help women or promote healthy body image, but simply perpetuate the myth that there is a normal body time that women should aspire to.

As a curvy girl, I sometimes envy the girls that can rock a tight pencil skirt! I absolutely hate all the sayings coming out similar to "real women have curves" No. Real women are healthy. We can't control our body shape but we can control how we make others feel about theirs.
