We are at crossroads in plus size history where size acceptance, plus size fashion, and community support and love are at a boil over- and this is a good thing.

While many would love to shun the Curvy.Confident.Chic. fashionistas, and those who aspire to be, we stand strong.

When they would attempt to limit the access to clothing and role models, we stand stronger.

When they attempt to define our curves as an abomination, an eyesore, unhealthy, and not worthy, we stand even stronger, and this time, with the help of The Adipositivity Project.

 

The Adipositivity ProjectLately, I have received emails (Thank you!) from women wondering how a woman with curves can exude such confidence. Confidence is defined as belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance.

Confidence is really about learning to love yourself, just as you are. Many will have their own viewpoints of what beauty is, but it is up to you to own what you have, accept it, and work with it! No one can really learn to love you, if you do not learn to love yourself first!

This is why I am highlighting The Adipositivity Project. This project is aimed to promote size acceptance, through a visual display of fat physicality through innovative, sensual, and creative photographs of the curvy, plus size, female shape- all done, purposefully, without seeing one woman’s face.

Adipose: Of or relating to fat.
Positivity: Characterized by or displaying acceptance or affirmation.

The Adipositivity ProjectThe Adipositivity Project is the creation of renowned photographer, Substantia Jones. She deliberately leaves faces off her pictures to incite any observer to visualize either themselves or the fat women in their own loves. Her goal, allowing these beautiful, plus size women to present themselves with an aesthetic appeal which, For better or worse, often translates into more complete forms of acceptance.

Miss Substantia models women from all walks of life. They are educators, executives, mothers, musicians, professionals, performers, artists, activists, clerks, and writers. Overall, they are beautiful- sharing a determination in altering commonly accepted notions of a narrow and specific beauty ideal!

Ladies, please take the time to visit The Adipositivity Project! Are you a confident woman, comfortable in her curves? Please share with me and others how you stepped into your cloak of confidence!

Keep it Curvy.Confident.Chic.

Sharing is caring!
