The Importance of Body Positivity in 2018

In recent years, body positivity is much more accepted than ever before. People are more comfortable wearing the clothes they like and do not feel as though they have to look a certain way to wear them. Brands are also becoming much more size inclusive, adding clothing sizes that are meant to fit everybody, not just people between sizes 0 and 8. Additionally, many companies have started to feature models of every shape and size, which is an incredible step in the fashion industry. However, body positivity still has a long way to go.

Net-A-Porter’s request for a model to be slimmed down was accidentally uploaded to their website.

Photoshop is still widely used on pictures of models on websites, in magazines, and throughout social media. It is also becoming more and more available to just about anyone who wants to use it, not just editors and other professionals. Apps and programs that allow people to edit their own photos are extremely popular in today’s society, meaning that people can see retouched photos all over, not just from famous models on magazine covers. This can cause major insecurity since average people are now able to edit themselves to look much different than they actually do.
