“Since I am not model-skinny, but also not super-fat and fabulously owning my hugeness, I fall into that nebulous, “Normal American Woman Size” that legions of fashion stylists detest. For the record, I’m a size 8 (this week, anyway). Many stylists hate that size because, I think, to them, I lack the self-discipline to be an aesthetic, or the sassy, confidence to be a total fatty hedonist. They’re like ‘Pick a lane.
Not every girl may relate to what Mindy is saying here but I had to blog about this because it describes how I have felt for the majority of my life. Never a fat girl, never a skinny girl. This is a very confusing place to be in and also why I decided to start writing about Average Girls.
Average Girls, in the sense that I am writing about them, refer to those who have felt common or mediocre but struggle with not being the "ideal." In another sense, I am writing about normal girls. Normal girls represent every body that does not fit into society's "ideal" standards but none the less are not the same. Being different but having similar concerns is what makes all girls...Average Girls.
