The Larger Woman: The Real WomanWritten by d'Italia
According to BodyAndSoul.com, the average size of the Australian woman – and man, for that matter – has been steadily increasing from the 90s up to now. Though the average itself hasn’t increased an incredible amount since 1995 – from about 67 kilos to about 70 – the increased average indicates that the norm for bodyweight in women is growing, meaning there are more and more women not fitting into the “petit ideal” of the coveted bodies of celebrities and models.
With increased weight means an increased dress size for the average woman, and more and more it seems the real woman is less and less like that celebrity ideal. The larger woman is becoming the real woman, the woman we know, the woman we love, the woman we see in the mirror. If the larger woman is you, know that your body is increasingly the realistic one. It’s not something to hide and it’s not something to be run away from if it’s what makes you truly comfortable and happy. Being the real woman today may mean taking on the plus-size line of clothing, and now more than ever this is just as beautiful as any other line.
