Hi guys, I took almost 2 years off from blogging because I needed to find what I'm really supposed to be doing on this planet. I mean I love fashion & am planning on launching a line, but I have always been deeply disturbed by the standardization of sizes.
Especially for girls, it is so easy to judge each other based on what size we wear. Do we really care if you are a size 2 and I am a size 14? It should have nothing to do with the quality of a person.
When I was a teen, I remember how vicious a girls' locker room was, comparing sizes while changing into our PE clothes or going shopping with my friends and family was something that I dreaded. I remember always picking a size that was smaller than what I really was and forcing myself to wear it. I was really embarrassed about being a size 9 then. I constantly wished and hoped that one day I would just wake up and be a size 0.
This seeded a low self esteem in myself that took years to overcome. Now, in my adult years, I really want to do something to reduce or completely eliminate this notion of "fat" and "too skinny" based on sizes of clothes. After 2 years of soul searching and reflecting within myself, I REALLY want to shed light onto the technologies that can fundamentally remove this particular social stigma from our society to impact us for the positive.
If we have the technologies that can enable us to have customize sizes at the tips of our fingers.. why shouldn't we utilize it.. or figure out a way for it to happen?
If sizes didn't exist would it help reduce judgement from others?
