A locally produced TV show by Woman2Woman on Selfie TV Online Channel. Show offers relevant topics and encourages discussions of issues which are relatable to men and women.
This week’s topic dealt with a topic that’s close to my heart. I have always struggled with weight and with the ups and downs, came the constant insecurities and self esteem issues. I would look at magazines and watch movies and never see a girl my size it would break my heart – that my body would never be defined as beautiful or be on a cover of a magazine.
And so many girls before me and after me, will never learn to love themselves – So when I grew older, I wanted to change that – in my own little way – I started a plus size fashion show, made sure I always worked with women and men of different sizes, ethnicities and age groups – also got media to acknowledge he beauty a plus size woman can display – bit by bit – its made ripples but I want to make a splash.
Does Beauty really come in a certain size?
Jyoti Sardar, shared her own personal experience of modeling at the age of 17yrs old. She eloquently highlighted how the perception of beauty changes geographically and negative vibes will always come your way but you need to be real with yourself and let your Aura shine!
Moushmi Bhuyan, a fitness enthusiast shared how health should be given a priority over thinness. The media does have its standards of what it considers beautiful but we don’t have to adhere to that pressure, instead we should work on ourselves. There is always room for self-improvement and self love.
Komal Chhatwani, a model shares about her personal experience of discrimination due to size. She opens up about, the lack of work and opportunities for plus size models and the media’s constant depiction of unrealistically thin models on the ramp. She believes that change is in the air and in the near future we will see more true representation of beauty.
In conclusion, I found it interesting to learn, that the pressure of being thin still exists, however fitness, strength and well being are taking centre stage. More women are looking beyond the media standards of beauty and embracing their curves.
