Meet Megan Jayne Crabbe, eating disorder holdover, lingerie model, body-positive
Most of us have stretch marks, scars, cellulite and other singular differences that make us unique. When we get home and try on new clothing, we should be thinking about how we feel in those clothes, if we are healthy and if we are happy. That happiness shines through and will always look so much better than a thinner, less healthy, more unhappy you.
This is another cornerstone of Megan Jayne’s philosophy and her push thereon social media for body assent. People often decide by their size, and body size does not equate with either physical or mental health. Finding your “happy size” where you are healthy, guaranteed and comfortable is far more important than trying desperately to conform to a body ideal that you are just never going to attain.
We should thank both Curvy Kate and Megan Jayne Crabbe for remind the world of what is vital. In this range of photos, they show us that our personal well-being should not be tied to the chick of a set designer, make-up artist, hair stylist, and photographer who dedicate their time to creating an unrealistic snapshot of a person who does not actually exist.
