Bridget Malcolm Talks Body Shaming on Set

On being fat shamed on set:

Whilst shooting, I had one lady refuse to look me in the eye, choosing instead to address my stomach with a sneer (I was shooting swim). I addressed her, smiled, and she didn’t even look away from my stomach, let alone respond to me beyond mono syllables. Another lady asked me to please make my ribs show more whilst shooting, suck in my gut, and tied a sarong around my hips, to ‘hide them’.

On the grey area in fashion:

It makes me enraged when a woman is made to feel fat at a size 4. What messed up parallel universe is this? The fashion industry should be celebrating women of all body sizes. We are experiencing a huge amount of growth in body acceptance – when will it start to make serious inroads in the fashion industry? I do have to acknowledge the appearance of plus size models in the higher end fashion industry. This is fantastic, and a welcome change. However there is a massive grey zone in the fashion industry. We see ‘straight size’ girls from sizes 0-2 maybe a 4 if the girl is well known or has b~~~~. Then nothing, until we hit ‘plus size’ girls at around size 14. Never mind the fact that the vast majority of women in the western world fall in this size bracket. Until a woman can open a magazine and see her body shape represented, how can women stop comparing themselves to an impossible standard?

Bridget Malcolm Stopped Obsessing about Her Size and Gained Weight

f-2 - Bridget Malcolm Stopped Obsessing about Her Size and Gained Weight

Bridget Malcolm, the 26 year-old Victoria’s Secret model who has been criticized for looking too thin and obsessing too much over achieving a skinny look, has recently admitted in lengthy blog post that she’s been struggling with self hate and over-obsessing about thinness – but no more. Here are some highlights:

In August this year I made myself a promise. It was time to make peace with my body. I threw away my scales, my measuring tape and my body checking. I threw away all my clothes from when I was at my smallest. I deleted all the gym selfies from my instagram, and all of the “progress” shots from my phone. Basically, I wanted no point of reference any more of a time when I was smaller, or larger. I just wanted to stop looking in mirrors and telling myself that I was “too fat”, and “not doing enough”.

So I began to relax into eating well; healthily, because I feel better that way, but no longer skipping meals, and no longer restricting volume. I let go of any attempt to diet, and stopped having foods that were “bad” or “good”. I stopped allowing guilt to exist, and I stopped hard workouts altogether.

I cannot tell you how many times I went to bed with my head whirling – trying to get me to latch onto how much I ate at dinner, or during the day, or trying to convince myself to change my diet, start training hard again, start tracking my size, just start doing more.

Because the fact is, life is way too short to be focused on the exterior. Time spent worrying about your size is time wasted. There are far bigger fish to fry in the world than your thigh size. There are so many better uses for your brain.

I have gained weight. And I do not give a f~~~ about it. My life is so much more than my jean size. And every day when that voice in my head tries to tell me I am worthless, it gets a little easier to shut it down. I am setting myself free slowly.

Honestly I have been kind of leading a double life when it comes to by body image. I have pretended that everything is fine and that I love life, all whilst struggling in private with serious self hate.

Khloe Kardashian Gives Tips on ‘How to Look Thin AF’

khloe_kardashian_backgrid_bgus_1165205_008 - Khloe Kardashian Gives Tips on 'How to Look Thin AF'

The full details from Daily Mail:

Khloe Kardashian may be eight months pregnant with her first child. But the 33-year-old realty Tv siren can remember back to the days when she went out of her way to look as thin as can be. And on Friday the girlfriend of Tristan Thompson named off the five tricks she uses to look as slender as ‘AF’ with a ‘sick bod’ in a post on her site

‘Dolls, you know I’ve never met a filter I didn’t like and I don’t hate on Photoshop, but there are even more stealth ways to look like you have a sick bod in pics. My tips really work, too! Study up below and get ready for your Insta comments to blow the f*ck up, lol!’

Her first tip seems pretty obvious, though hard to remember: ‘Hide Behind You Squad.’ The star said you can ‘literally halve yourself’ by ‘strategically’ having your pals flank you. The next is Have the Photographer Shoot From Above. The ‘only flattering angle’ is from above. Her third tip was, Stick Out Your Chin. She said this way one can ‘just say no to double-chin vibes!’ The fourth tip is to Use Your Arms and Shoulders: ‘Hands on hips. Bonus points if you angle sideways and use your camera-facing arm. ‘Shoulders back and away from ears. Always,’ said the author. The last tip was Wear Black and Vertical Stripes. She said prints and horizontal stripes ‘add instant bulk.’

Also good is to add a ‘spray-tan’ and to avoid ‘direct sunlight’ which is ‘your mortal enemy’ because ‘squinting enlarges your jawline.’ When seated, ‘cross your legs at your ankles so your thighs and calves look super slim.’ She added, ‘When in doubt, put a bag over your belly, like I did to hide my baby bump!’

In response to Khloe’s tips on how to look ‘thin AF’, The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil tweeted:

‘Don’t concentrate on school or work or achievements or your kids or your friendships or love… just make *sure* you look “THIN AF” in your edited Instagram pictures girls. That’s how to win life!’

SI Model Hunter McGrady: “The girl above was a very sad, shy, unhealthy, scared girl”

t - SI Model Hunter McGrady: "The girl above was a very sad, shy, unhealthy, scared girl"

On body diversity and finding her healthiest self:

I’m here to remind you all that we all have a body that sits differently than others but we are so blinded and yet driven by social media and what the perfect body looks like. I’ve tried in more ways than one to change my body, I have battled an industry that tells me my body isn’t good enough. Even in the plus size world, I get told to change. I’m calling bullshit on that. I have never been happier or healthier in my life.

The girl above was a very sad, shy, unhealthy, scared girl who would have been mortified at the thought of being bigger because all I ever knew was that looking one certain way was beautiful and that i wouldn’t be accepted otherwise. I didn’t see different sizes or (what society labels) “imperfections”on my screens or on billboards.
We all hold weight differently, some sit smaller than others and some bigger, we all fluctuate, we all are beautiful in our own ways and SO HELP ME GOD if I have children and have to raise them in a world where they don’t see diversity. I won’t stand for a world that keeps women down and tells us we can’t love ourselves and shout it from the rooftops. We are WORTHY of these things. I’m sick of being told it’s vain. Don’t you dare allow yourself to feel guilty for loving yourself or for feeling absolutely fabulous. You deserve it. You’re worthy of that.

… says size 14 / 16 model Hunter.
