"There are so many pictures of models in lingerie, but I'm constantly asked for pictures of our products on 'regular' bodies... In the fashion world, anything over size 4 is considered plus-size. I know, it's a big joke."So Bougon decided to use her store as a platform to celebrate what average, non-model women look like with her newly-launched "Regular Women" campaign.
"Inspired by a customer, I wanted to show that women with rolls, bumps, lumps, scars, stretch marks, surgery scars and natural breasts that have nursed babies can be stunning and beautiful."Women have responded in full-force. They've been posting their own photos to the Curvy Girl's Facebook page, causing it to grow by 3,500 fans in just 3 days. Here are some of the submitted images. Though we would never take the power away from these women to post their images, does defining them as regular strip women like this of the ability to be 'regular'? Yes they are plucked and waxed and tanned and styled - but does that make them irregular? It is not done by any degree of force - it is a personal choice. Just as the women above have made a personal choice to be happy in their skin. I, personally, take issue with defining these curvy girls as 'regular women' for two reasons
"I'm 28 and I've had a baby. I have a woman's body, and once in a while you run into the fact that things are not fitting the way they should be. But I joke about it and say, 'What 13-year-old girl was wearing this?'"If companies balk at the fact she might not fit into a size zero, she says she doesn't care.
"If they think I'm too fat, I'd rather not do the job—because I'm super-healthy and fit and I'm so happy the way I am."
All the women in all the pictures above deserve credit for their confidence, but one should not be defined as "regular" over the other.Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_98752" align="alignnone" width="100"] @BodyRockTV[/caption]
