One Size Doesn't Fit All

by - January 15, 2012

I read an article today that really spoke to me: singers who are often in the media (entertainment media anyway) being criticized for the size of their bodies speaking out and defending their curves. Bravo.

For generations women have been told that to be attractive is to be a size zero.

If that's true, my size 6-7 butt must be hideous. Shhh, don't tell my fiance. He thinks I'm beautiful.

Marilyn Monroe was the envy of women everywhere, sought by men and she definitely did not fit the standards of beauty as dictated by society.

She had curves and wasn't afraid to show them off.

So maybe I'm not a model. At 5'2 1/2" I'm certainly not tall enough for it, and tipping the scale between 125 and 130 pounds certainly would deem me a 'plus size' model.

But if Marilyn Monroe wasn't a conventional beauty, then I don't want to be either.

I'll take my size 6-7 jeans any day.
