Such a great post on Facebook from Alissa Wilson from stylishcurves.net:
“As plus size women we don’t all have the same views when it comes to body acceptance. I personally believe that as plus size women for so many years we were put down and told to hate ourselves and to hide until we look the way society thinks we should look. My passion and my fight for plus size women will always be to uplift and promote positive thinking I think about young girls who are doing extreme dieting just so they won’t be called fat. I think of young plus size girls who accept less than they should from a boy because she thinks her weight makes her not good enough. I think of the plus size women who find themselves too big to deserve well made quality clothes in their size.

There you have a point, Alissa: we also WANT great clothes. And not only the ‘casual simple things’.
And my mission is the same as yours: to let young women,who struggle with their body and size, be proud of themselves. My message: dare to be noticed in any size!
Because style has no size!!!
