It is rare to see an actress, or any showbiz personality that looks different from the conventional beauty, especially in our local television. What about our curvy and morena women?
From runways to advertisements, most women representation we get are petite, flawless, and fair-skinned women which is the society’s way of imposing this beauty standard. There’s nothing wrong with fitting this description, of course. Although this very limited representation of beauty is unfair to women who don’t. Through years of saturated exposure, people were conditioned to believe that this is the definition of beauty.
We have good news for you, ladies. You do not need to fit into any standards to be beautiful! You already are and have always been!
Since women have been voicing out their need for better representation, our current society is becoming more open and welcoming to diversifying our standards. Some even started early, which paved the way to the changes we are experiencing. One of them is Mr. Tadashi Shoji.
This 70 year-old American-based Japanese designer is known for providing reasonably priced designer clothing to women of all ages, all ethnicity, and all sizes. Take a look at his collection and see for yourself how this man could make you feel extra beautiful!
Tadashi Shoji’s official website has some helpful tips for women about different body figures. It also features their size chart, which goes from size 0 to 24 aka Queen size!
Now, no woman would ever feel too small or too big in a dress because of how their dresses cater to almost every size.
Our petite ladies out there shouldn’t worry because they have all of your sizes too.
