“Today at work, I wore this pretty form-fitting outfit because well… because I can.


A woman, probably in her mid to late 30s asks me…

“Can I ask you a question without purposely trying to offend you?”

Of course I said she could and then she asks me…

“Do you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing?”

and I kind of confusedly answered that I did feel comfortable in what I was wearing.

She then asked…

“Even though it’s extremely… form-fitting?” and I said “Especially because it’s form fitting.”

She then told me that she thought I looked beautiful but asked how I was so comfortable, as a full-figured woman, wearing something tight.

I simply answered…

“Because I love my body. I love my shape. I love who I am. It took me a long time to be okay with what kind of body I have but now I love it and if I choose to change it, I can. If I don’t choose to, then I won’t. Sure, I have things I don’t like about myself but overall I can’t say I’m disappointed in the way I look or feel in the clothes I choose to wear.”

She then called me her “She-Hero” and bought an outfit just like the one I was wearing.

This is why I love my job.

Love your positive influence and attitude!

  1. I am in awe of full-figured women who are comfortable in their skin. I hate my body and wouldn’t have the courage to wear form-fitting if I was paid $1M. Well, okay, I might wear it for that much but you’d be risking your life if you take a picture of me in it.


  2. Excellent! Reading the stories of young women who feel and this this way makes me feel proud to be a life-long, “senior” feminist who champions positive body images for all body types!


  3. You are a KNOCKOUT and that dress looks fabulous on you! We are all who we are, and the bodies we were born with are unique to us. Good grief, how sad and depressing this world would be if we all looked the same! I salute you and all of us who choose to dress the way we want to, be proud of how we look, and recognize that we are each a wonderful and unique presence on this earth.

    Again–you look gorgeous!
