You know it’s a good start to the day when an article titled “The Best Curvy-Girl Tricks For Looking Amazing” pops up on your news feed. The people at Who What Wear thought curvy women would appreciate the tips since it’s so incredibly challenging and tiring to get the right angle when you’re not a pencil thin model.
The article goes on to say how cameras aren’t flattering on some body types (by some they mean curvy women), and aims to help readers “minimize those parts you’d rather not highlight.” But what if we like the way we look? What if we’re not trying to hide the cellulite? A little presumptuous of you Who What Wear to assume that just because a woman is curvy, that there is something to hide.
The article almost reads like a horror story for curvy women, noting all the things you should be afraid of or else there will be a horribly unflattering picture of you on the internet for the rest of your life. For example: Be very cautious of the light casting on your thighs a certain way, be afraid of not making your figure look hourglass, and whatever you do, pop that hip out. The phrase double chin is repeated multiple times, and every tip basically boils down to showcasing your figure in a certain way, and always, always, always do anything you can to make your waist look slimmer. Thanks for the tips WWW, too bad we look good at every angle.
