    I needed to read this. I’ve recently turned 30 years old. Had geared myself up to wearing an outfit that isn’t “flattering” in society’s standards. But I chickened out. So I’ve saved this link and will keep reading this blog post until I no longer give a flying F about society and eventually wear the outfit! Thanks for a great uplifting post.

    This!! I often see things like pencil skirts and skinny jeans and think I can’t/shouldn’t wear them because my bum would look too big and my legs would look too thick I remember reading magazines as a preteen and categorising myself as cola bottle we damage ourselves so much with these views!

    I empathise with the suit for your prom. Been there, got the t shirt.

    Oddly enough, the shape I have come out with post menopause and having lost the menopause weight – much better for the arthritis and gone gluten free – is the best I have ever been.

    I love your honesty and how you’re not afraid to take a stand on a lot of REALLY important issues that sooo many bloggers shy away from. These issues need so much more attention! Way to go, gal! xx

    Vix, I wish you’d been writing these posts when I was 15! Love this- you write so well and I always come away from your blog feeling more positive.

    YES TO ALL OF THIS. As a fellow pear shaped person, I’ve always read about how I shouldn’t wear body-con dress or high-waisted jeans but I wore them anyways because I wanted to. In other aspects in life, especially taking photos, I wish I could give less f’s about flattery but it’s a long journey towards it. Thanks for such wonderful post and for inspiring a lot of women out there! x

    Yaaas Queen. You are so spot on with everything here, and a really important topic to cover. I love that you said, “We’re telling ourselves, each time we opt for something, ‘flattering’ that we have something to flatter” – shouldn’t we be dressing to ‘flatter’ our personalities? Or our individuality? Or just basically, ourselves?
    Another great post Vix – I love reading your blog. Keep ’em coming! x
