I once had a boy tell me that I had all these great qualities, and he listed them, like you're friendly and you're pretty and you're smart; you'd be the perfect girlfriend if only you weren't fat.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2015
Curvy Girl Lingerie created a video that shows how plus-sized women are learning to love themselves and gain confidence despite negative comments from Internet trolls.
The Mean Tweets video begins with several women reading all-too-common Twitter (and other social media site) messages targeting large, curvy women, such as, “You're not curvy, you're fat. Face the facts. Go ahead and eat your feelings some more you hippo.”
The video progresses with the women opening up about their struggles and how loving themselves for who they are has made all the difference in their world.
Gia shares, “I once had a boy tell me that I had all these great qualities, and he listed them, like you're friendly and you're pretty and you're smart; you'd be the perfect girlfriend if only you weren't fat. That was pretty bad.”
She continues, “I think one of the unique things of working at Curvy Girl is when you have a customer come in, just barely peeking at things, and then they find something that fits. They starting to feel comfortable with their own body and how amazing and sexy they are. They come out, they glow, they smile...it's like butterflies emerging from a cocoon.”
Chrystal Bougon, owner of Curvy Girl Lingerie, knows that her store is about more than just plus-size clothing. “What I really wanted to do was create a safe place where fat women could come and talk about their sex lives and come and find fun stuff that helps them to make their sex life even richer and sexier.”
There’s still a lot to be done in the body positivity movement. Plus Life™, a groundbreaking TV series portraying plus-size women in a positive light as beautiful, unapologetic, empowered, sexual beings who love themselves now, recently debuted their sizzle reel for a sneak peek at the show set to debut soon on a major network.
In the meantime, the women in Curvy Girl Lingerie’s Mean Tweets video (all of whom are featured in Plus Life) continue to feel beautiful, sexy and attractive, despite the negative comments they read online.
Mia sums it up nicely by saying, “I put the lingerie on and I feel like a sex queen, like the most beautiful woman in the room, and that's a great feeling.”
