Growing up as a consumer of pop culture and women's magazines, there was only one body type to have: skinny.

When you want to buy a little black dress, in Paris you would go to rue Faubourg St Honoré; but when you need a finely cut men's suit in London, it's Saville Row that would be your destination. Home to gentleman's clubs and the most famous dandies of all times, the British capital is still proudly living up to its status of the capital of men's fashion.

I wasn't offended or upset that they didn't like my body in particular, rather I was upset for all the women out there that society has been telling are not good enough if they are not extremely thin.
