On how she wishes she had smaller boobs (despite the fact that made her famous):

I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs. Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up. If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons. In my eyes, Cameron Diaz has the perfect figure.

… says 21 year-old Kate.

On the pressures of looking perfect:

As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.

… says Emma.

On body image:

“I think I radicalized my relationship to my own body in order to accept it. To make my body a prop in my work gave it a value I didn’t feel it had before. At the Golden Globes I had a little bit of fat bubbling over, but I love how that looks. It looks so bountiful. It reminded me of corset dramas. They’ll be a point – maybe when I’m pregnant or when I have kids – when I just want to have my body for myself.”

… says Lena in Glamour.

On beauty and body image:

There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, “I’m not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now. And I examined my face in the magnifying mirror, and I looked at my body, and I cried and cried and cried. Then I said to myself, “You’re going to get old now. How do you want to do that? And I thought, “I’d like to age like a dancer.” I want to keep my body in shape like that. I want to do the work. I like to dance and stretch. And I like going to the gym.’

… says 55 year-old Sharon.

Teen Girl’s Petition for Disney to Create a Plus-Size Princess

Teen Girls Petition for Disney to Create a Plus Size Princess | beauty body image

At high request, here’s a popular story about a teenage girl’s petition for Disney to create plus-size princesses in order to boost young girls’ confidence and promote acceptance. All the details from Daily Mail:

A teenage girl has launched a petition for Disney to make a plus-size princess in the wake of controversy over whether the company promotes an unrealistic feminine ideal. Jewel Moore, a high school junior from Farmville, Virginia, wrote on her Change.org page that since Disney has such a huge influence on young girls, it should create a princess with a curvy body to ‘show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media.’ But while many have praised her for trying to put a stop to body shaming, others have questioned whether a ‘plus-size’ princess – rather than simply a normal-size one – is a step in the wrong direction.

Jewel’s petition, which has amassed 861 signatures so far, bears the title: ‘Every body is beautiful’. She writes that she created the page ‘because I’m a plus-size young woman, and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positive plus-size character in the media.’

Citing research that ‘a child’s confidence correlates greatly with how much representation they have in the media,’ she says a plus-size Disney princess would be a positive step towards body acceptance. Many commenters have agreed with Jewel, leaving comments on the Change.org page to express their opinion.

‘If young girls see that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, they can change how society views it,’ wrote one supporter. Another said: ‘Having dealt with being overweight my entire life, I think that it would be great for Disney to make a more realistic princess for young girls to look up to.’

But some have taken issue with Jewel’s emphasis on ‘plus-size’, asserting that the focus needs to be on having ‘normal’ princesses with realistic and healthy dimensions instead. One parent wrote on CafeMom.com: ‘Why do princesses have to be either weirdly skinny or plus size? Are there any petitions for normal sized princesses?’ ‘If girls are THAT impressionable I wouldn’t want them looking up to overweight princesses’. The sentiment was shared by another mother, who said: ‘Understandable. But at the same time do we want our daughters idolizing a plus sized princess either?
