Plus-size blogger hits out at body shamers that claim crop tops are just for thin women
It's a taking a lot of time to convince society that every body is beautiful.
The spotlight is on plus-size bloggers and models at the moment - Tess Halliday, Ashley Graham, Gabi Fresh - to name but a few.
These ladies help bring up the conversation of body positivity, body diversity and the topic of archaic demanding beauty standards.
Sadly, it is not always with positivity that their work is met.
One blogger, Maui Bigelow was met with fierce criticism when she decided to wear figure-hugging clothes.
In writing an essay for The Curvy Fashionista, founder of plus-size blog Phat Girl Fresh, Bigelow confessed a plus-size stranger tried adjusting her clothes while she was wearing a crop top and telling her that they can't be showing their stomachs.
She replied: "maybe you can't show your belly but I can show mine".
She also noted that it is the changing attitudes of plus-size women that helped encourage the growing conversation about body positivity.
"We have released ourselves from the box that society placed us in and begin to absorb our absolute truth; we are fabulous, beautiful and capable of doing and being whatever we desire, right now at the size that we are," she said.
Regardless of what anyone has to say, I personally think she looks great. Long live Phat Girl Fresh!
