“As a plus size woman there’s all this meaning put behind usually meaningless decisions. I need to wear clothes. I buy clothes I like. I wear those clothes.

I went out of the house with something that actually shows the shape of my body. In my heart of hearts I can’t wait until the day when my fashion sense is praised without the caveat that I’m plus or body positive or wearing something society says I shouldn’t.

Obviously this was not an easy decision as I struggled a lot at times. I was bothered with people’s stares or awkwardness around me. Eventually, it all ended as soon as I stopped caring about what others thought and focused more on myself.”
