The mark of a beautiful modern woman differs from country to country, but one thing that seems to be universal in today’s world is that a beautiful woman is a skinny woman. Looking at the gorgeous runway models, ladies adorning the fashion magazine covers, and many others from the fashion and beauty industry, the one thing they have in common is that they’re really thin with some curves here and there. All the body types that do not fit this mold, especially those who have a few extra pounds are ostracized, looked down upon, and even ridiculed.

Societies constantly change, develop and evolve and while today’s ideal beauty standards are just a pipe dream for most women around the world, keep in mind that it was not always like that. In the past, the more curvaceous women were considered healthier, more beautiful, and more desirable, while the thinner ones were seen as weaker and even poor. Those beauty standards changed and we are witnessing the changes happening in today’s decade’s old beauty standards as well.

The body-positive image that has been trending for some years now is making the fashion and beauty industry reevaluate the perfect beauty image standards they’ve been pushing. Through the globe, if you’re overweight (or considered to be overweight) you’re considered to be unhealthy, lazy, undisciplined, etc. Only recently we’ve come to understand that it doesn’t matter if you have the perfect BMI body, but that you’re healthy with the weight you have.

While still shunned by many, the body-positive image is something we have to consider more seriously and as a society start to see past the norms of the body shapes and see the true beauty singing from within. So let’s see some gorgeous and stylish outfits to bring out that inner confidence, beauty, and self-love curvaceous women deserve.
