Beyond Body Positivity: You've Got It, so Flaunt It!
You’re a stunner inside and out — and the world should know it! Check out this post to learn more about body acceptance and positivity and how you can play with fashion to let your light shine through. Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves. Body positivity strives to make this a reality. Let’s take a look….
What is Body Positivity?
Body positivity may seem like a cheap trend or a couple of buzzwords. But the idea behind it is way more meaningful and is aimed at being impactful and helpful. So, according to experts, body positivity is a social movement that encompasses a handful of central themes. This movement: Promotes the acceptance of all bodies, regardless of their size, shape, color, gender, sex, physical abilities, etc. Challenges beauty norms and ideals — many of which are unattainable by most people Acknowledges that “beauty” is a subjective, changeable social construct Advocates that one’s appearance should not be the basis of a person’s sense of self or worth
Body Acceptance — You’re So Much More Than Just a Skin Suit!
Just so you know, this is sometimes also called body neutrality. Either way, it’s an important concept that’s a little different than body positivity. Some people think body positivity might push folks to focus too much on physical appearances. Body acceptance or neutrality seeks to keep us more balanced. Basically, it’s advocating for people to not get overly hung up on their looks. Like, reaching a healthy middle ground where you’re cool with your body — you accept and respect it — but aren’t obsessed with loving or hating it. Body acceptance also values and prioritizes how you feel as an critical aspect of your personal relationship with your body. Yes, your appearance may be important or help you distinguish yourself and convey identity. But it’s not the essence of who you are. You’re a hell of a lot more than your boobs, butt, or buzz cut! So, this is sort of also a caution not to wade into the body positivity toxic end of the pool. While you’re certainly a knock-out on the outside – you’re even more gorgeous on the inside. Heart, mind, spirit matter baby! Also, keep in mind that literally *EVERYONE* has flaws and insecurities – it’s normal. And it’s OK to accept them.
