chubby woc

don’t you just love girls with big thighs? curvy girls with wide hips, large feet, and round bellies? girls who have cellulite, stretch marks and folds? girls with full lips, crooked teeth, and braces? girls who don’t shave? girls with flat noses, small eyes, oily hair, and dry skin? girls who can’t find makeup to match their skin tone because it’s dark? girls who are thick in all the “wrong” places? girls who are ugly according to eurocentric beauty standards?? 

I know I sure do. 

Black Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Jewish Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Muslim Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Asian Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Disabled Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Trans Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Fat/Chubby Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Sapphic Women are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

All Women of Color are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Women with Mental Illness are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Women who reject European beauty are masterpieces and you can’t tell me otherwise.

Literally every single woman is art, and that’s irrefutable. I love you all so SO much. Be brave, be bold and be you.

It’s been years beyond count since I’ve bought clothes in India. I gave up sometime in 2009, mostly because I was tired of being constantly disappointed and excluded. There are more plus size clothing options in India these days, especially online, but it’s still rare that I can find something that fits my style and budget. This dress was an unexpected surprise, even more so because I found it at the local mall while shopping for my sister. It takes a lot to overcome memories of feeling oversized and out of place while dredging through racks of tiny dresses and tops, but I’m glad I did it this once because this dress fulfills all my boho fashion dreams for summer. The bag is also a local buy from eBay India, and while it took a bit of TLC (oiling and polishing) before I could use it, I’m super happy with how it turned out.

I have never liked my body. I’ve always considered my self fat, and in my mind that was equal to ugly. I bought this outfit yesterday at Forever 21, in the plus sized section. While I was in the plus sized area, a little skinny white girl said to her friends, “This is my size guys.” and they all laughed. She continued to say, “haha just kidding, I’m not fat as fuck.” It has taken me a long time to be even remotely content with my body. I can officially say that I love everything about me. Fat does not equal ugly. Shitty people like the girl yesterday are what equal ugly. I love my not-so-flat stomach and my not-so-skinny arms. I love my stretch marks and my thighs. Just cause I’m bigger does not mean I’m any less beautiful.

Cubbon Park is such a pretty place. The heat let up for the first time in days with a thunderstorm as we were shooting in the bamboo grove. My sunglasses became pretty redundant at that point but my summer uniform was perfect for walking around in the evening cool afterwards.
