I really liked this rant from a plus-sized woman about advice from Lucky magazine on how to hide/diminish her curves:

What I really want and enjoy is shopping for clothes that look good on the body I have. Although it might sound astonishing for some, looking GOOD doesn’t necessarily equate to looking THIN/SMALLER to a lot of us plus sized women. Curves aren’t an embarrassment that we need to wear pieces to diguise’em or use accessories to divert peoples attention from noticing my wide hips. They are there and I find no reason to disguise them…

I’m pleased to see a new generation telling fashion advisers where to stick it.
