Forgive me if the following sounds a bit too didactic, but I just attended a talk by Rachel Hollis and I’m all about the motivational speak right about now.
A few weeks ago, we asked our community to send us photos of yourselves wearing XCVI. We knew that you tend to be a bit self-conscious and that you shy away from posting your own photos, but I didn’t realize to what extent.
Since we first asked, we’ve had exactly 2 (two) women send us their photos. That’s it. No one else. Why is that? Why is it that so many of us feel like our beautiful photos are not worthwhile sharing? We want to see you, the real you.
We need to stop believing those stories we tell ourselves: that we’re not pretty enough, we’re not skinny enough, we’re not enough (fill in the blank). Just because we believe those stories doesn’t make them true.
Let’s commit to owning our worth and moving on from self-doubt. Let’s march into March with confidence. Deal? Deal.
We'll start, and post our own photos (see below). Don't we look pretty?

Ladies, you look wonderful!
Personally I love the long large pants, they’re sooooo rare for so many years now! Only skinny pants everywhere you look! I like the 70’s style! Yours look close enough. I ordered a few. Unfortunately you don’t have the xxs size for small frame women, like myself. So I had to take them to a tailor to tighten them, and they still fall off after I wear them once. See, skinny women have their too skinny legs to hide. That’s why I don’t wear skinny pants. I think only perfectly proportional tall women should wear those. Sorry, I don’t believe in the “be confident” speech. I am definitely confident of myself. But I think we should be more honest, ladies, and face the truth! We should show what we have the best, and hide some flows. WHY NOT? What’s wrong with looking the best we can? I’m 5.4, 112 lbs, my waist is 24, I like showing it, because I’m proud of it, but I don’t like to show my legs, they’re ok, but they’re not perfect. Besides my curvy forms I had years back are gone, now I’m just kinda manly looking from workout and age. Thanks my plastic surgeon for my breast implants! Otherwise I would look more skinny.
Anyway, my point is, please! Start making XXS sizes too! I know you would make happy many small women,too! Thank you!
