Flaunt Your Flaws : My Not-So-Perfect Body Size
Sometimes, I hate that I live in Singapore.
The clothes here are catered for the stick-thin Asian women who LITERALLY ARE THAT SIZE. Just look at all the Miss Singapore Universe contestants and you’d know what I mean..
Physique of a typical Singaporean girl
1. Twig-looking arms
2. Long legs (virtually no cellulite unlike me)
3. Almost Anorexic-looking figure by global standards
4 Disadvantage: No butt, no boobs
Sometimes, I cant even buy the “Free-Size” Dresses because they are not catered to my size. It’s for the typical Singaporeran girl and I end up reselling all the clothes I bought since I couldn’t try some of them.
I have the hips, I am not skinny and I HAVE THIGHS AND A BUTT. TAKE A LOOK!
Okay…to some of you, you may think my size and the thigh look decently okay but it is hard to get clothes.
As shameless as this is gonna sound, I do look at myself in the mirror as I am changing for work and Ive finally accepted my size.
Reasons For Accepting My Not-So- Perfect Body Size
1. Life is too short to worry about these things ladies..Yes, I have cellulite but guess what..
When I use my clothes, I fill them out nicely and I can still wear clothes that flatter me le.g A-line flowing skirts or high-waisted skirts or pants.
When I use my bikini or or skinny jeans or pants, you can see that I have a butt and AT LEAST if I dont have big boobs, I have that much 🙂
2. I kinda like being one of the bigger girls
Whenever I see some of the skinny girls, they look so fragile like as though they were going to break any moment.
Besides, not everyone wants to hold a twig to sleep right?! HAHAHAHA..
3. I got more compliments being bigger than skinnier!
Yes, it’s true!! Why would I lie to you…Apparently, I got more compliements from both men and women that I looked healthier once I put on the weight.
I used to be really active in secondary school so I had a really high metabolism so I dropped weight fast. From then until end of polytechnic, I still looked skinny and my head looked like a lollipop on my body.
Once I put on the weight, I looked more proportionate, face didn’t look so sunken in and I didnt feel so self-conscious anymore because I ABSOLUTELY STOPPED CARING.
That was the best feeling of all.
