does piper ever feel self conscious about her lankiness? jw
Oh Im sure. Everyone experiences insecurity in their life, and Piper is no exception.
I headcanon she went through a bout of self-consciousness around 14 or 15 because while her other female classmates had started “filling out” (wider hips, fuller breasts, etc) she was still very tall, lean, and generally flat. Piper is truly feminine at heart, and I think sometimes she struggled to show that as a teen because she felt her body wasnt the right fit for the type of clothing she wanted to wear, which resulted in her defaulting to a more tomboy style as a way of self-preservation. Her frequent hair style changes were also a coping mechanism- something about her looks she control.
Of course now that she’s in her twenties and has come a bit more into her shape, alot of that anxiety has faded. It isn’t gone, but she’s made great strides in seeing her appearance as something to be proud of <3
