Society and especially the fashion industry has a strong opinion about how curvy, plus-size women should act, what they should wear and who they should be in the world. It can be exhausting to stick to the cultural expectation that demands they blend in and be highly put-together at the same time. Someone, somewhere, came up with a ridiculous list of fashion rules plus-size women were supposed to follow: don’t wear crop tops, don’t wear stripes, don’t wear strapless dresses, etc. But these ladies are helping to challenge those expectations and smash those standards into the ground. These ladies are crushing outdated beauty standards while making our Instagram feeds a whole lot prettier.Over the decades, ideals of beauty and plus size fashion have been attractively packaged and delivered to us by influencers and companies. We have been told what beauty is, what it should be, and we have begun to believe it. Kenyan research conducted revealed that women generally agree about there being something beautiful about each and every woman; however, they do not see their own beauty. It’s time to LEVEL UP.

The Waiting Game Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely, that when others see us, they know exactly how it should be done. You will never be happy in your own skin if your self acceptance is dependent on the acceptance of others. Bodies go in and out of style and it’s impossible to be everybody’s cup of tea. That is why it’s SO important to love and accept yourself, regardless of what others might think or say. So we prepare for the Waiting game as we head to work and hustle awaiting the night to be with our partners. Slay it .
