    Ugh….so I was in at White House/Black Market yesterday looking for a dress to wear to FI’s cousins wedding. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, so I’m back down to wearing a size medium/large top, but my hips are still…I guess Texas is the only way to describe them.
    Anyways, I was trying on this really great dress, and this other little girl who couldn’t have been more than 18 years old walks out in the same thing. Okay, cool. Well, as I’m walking into my dressing room I hear her and her little friend going on and on about “that girl has a ghetto booty, she really shouldn’t be wearing that dress, it makes her ass look giant.”
    NEWS FLASH!!! My ass IS giant! It always has been, and that’s just my body composition. I can’t believe that women still haven’t gotten any further than judging one another based upon different body makeups. I have worked my ass off (no pun intended) to get to where I am, and not to sound conceited ladies, but I look damn good.
    I just think it is ridiculous that people have this almost unattainable definition of beauty, and if you don’t fit that mold to a t then you’re not considered beautiful. You know what? I am an intelligent, funny, and down right gorgeous curvy young woman, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I’m healthy, and my body is proportional on my now size 12 frame, so society can just kiss my Texas sized @$$.
    There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of ones self.

      Preach on, girl is all I can really say! :) Kudos to you for acknowledging that you are HOT, don't let anyone ever tell you differently!

      I can wear anything from a size 8 to 14, so I understand the irritation you feel when you say that people think we should all conform to one "standard" of beauty. I think what makes us beautiful are our differences, as cliche as that sounds.

        Curvy is in and love your body and the changes that you have made! Screw everyone else! It is sad that women still judge each other by a skinny standard but I don't think that will ever end! So celebrate you and the way you look!

          Can you hear me clapping?
          Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          I was built for comfort and not speed.... It's my junk in the trunk.... Keep your opinions to yourself!!!!
          I really hear you on this one, whenI was looking for a wedding dress, I went to a small shop local and the owner (YUP the owner) told me when I walked in she would not have any samples to try on because she does carry my size because it would hidious on a hanger and no one would want to try it on..............wasn't giving that place a second thought, I hauled my huge ass out the door with whatever money I was considering spending on my dress.

          Whatever!!! We're all made different shapes, sizes some people need to get over themselves and realize there is no such thing as perfection. I would have told her, you can't shake what you don't have sister.

            Way to go! Now if only you said that to them...I wish I could have been there to say that for you. I am too curvy and also a size 12 and it drives me nuts when all the cute outfits are only in sizes 8 and less. That they consider 12 now a plus size. Seriously? Iwas a size 18....yes I would conside a 16 or 18 plus size, but 12 or 14? Nope! Most women actually range in the 10-14 size range as per stats canada. Thats why you can never find a large or extra large anything....there are always small and meds left over on the rack that they cant sell. It infuriates me when people judge people by there size bc I have been on both sides of that coin.
            We are all made differently on the inside and out and that is waht makes us who we are. In the end those girls are just ignorant!!! I would rather be someone they make fun of then be ignorant. Ignorance is not always bliss....
            Way to go on all your hard work and you rock that dress when you wear it!!! Bc you look beautiful and you worked hard for that dress!!

                  OMG SusieQ I can't beieve she said that to you! What kind of a person says something like that? Whatever. Some people are so closed minded when it comes to people of different body types. I think that's the most disgusting thing I've ever heard someone in the service industry say to patron.

                    Latina booty over here woot woot! I hate the way society views us curvy girls. When I was a professional dancer I went to so many auditions and was turned away because I has an a**. I danced circles around so many of the girls that got the gig and I would come home in tears. Once J-lo hit things got better but still society still looks down on my figure. What ever!! I know alot of men appreciate women with curves and my FI first attraction to me was my curves. So I am going to take your advice and tell them they can kiss My Big Mexican A**
