Project Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
How many of you ladies realize that modern-day sizing is screwed up? That at Forever21 you might be a size two, but then at JCrew you're a six. Sizing is all over the board, and sometimes it leaves us girls & women feeling like something is wrong with out bodies. OUr society is so strung up on size and weight that sometimes it's hard to ignore,even though we may try really really hard.
As you know I'm on a mission for beauty. I want you to know how beautiful you are, and I want you to know that whatever size is on the waistband of your jeans does not define who you are as a person. I want you to see that even though some of us may wear the "same size", we all have unique bodies. And one size does not fit all.
So here, I stand, begging on my hands and knees asking for some participation from my lovely readers. I need four of you to give me a helping hand. I want you to do something fun with me.
I want you to wear my pants...
How would this work? Or rather what exactly am I getting at here?
There would be 5 of us. All of us who normally wear the same size. We would pass the one pair of jeans around among us and wear them. Chances are, even though we're all the "same size" they're going to fit each one of us differently. I want to show people that this whole sizing thing is bogus! That there is no set size, and we cannot let the number on a tag let us define who we are as girls and women!
So if you'd be interested in passing around a pair of pants, comment below. The one requirement would be that you need to normally wear anywhere from a size 2-6 and include your email address so that we can chat about it. Or, if you'd rather send me an email with questions feel free to do so at firstname.lastname@example.org !
I'm really looking forward to trying this out.
