body shape

There are certain things that people say that stop you in your tracks and make you double think about your body – it's size, it's weight, it's shape. 

But really, nobody should make you feel bad or uncomfortable about you figure.

It's your body. And you're the only person who can judge and make the rules for it.

So, the next time one of these things happen, let it fly in one ear, and out the other. 

Asking the clothing salesperson for a bigger size

If you haven't noticed by now, sizing is a total free-for-all. Some brands cut their clothes super tight while others make their garments extra roomy. Either way, if you look smoking hot in tht dress, who cares what size it is. 


Seeing an unflattering photo of yourself

So the camera caught you at a bad angle or the lighting was bad. That lighting isn't going to follow you around for the rest of your days! You're the only one freaking out over the size of your arm, nobody else will notice. Sure even Kimmy has bad angles!


Being told your a particular body type

Comparing your body type to a fruit may be silly, but it gives you a good grasp of what clothes you should wear and the tailoring you need. But don't be offended by it, from apples to pears, every body type is sexy in it's own right. 


Walking up a few flights of stairs and getting out of breath

It's hard for everyone to walk up a couple flights of stairs! Adding incline to the intensity and speed will slow even the fittest woman down. Don't let it bother you!


Your bra size

Whether you're big, small or medium-sized, it doesn't really matter because every woman is different. At the end of the day, once your bra does its job and stays comfy, you have nothing to worry about. 


The love hormone oxytocin, which is released during kissing, sex and breastfeeding, may reduce sufferers’ obsession with losing weight.

The hormone was given to 31 patients through a nasal spray and it was found that people suffering from anorexia who took the hormone, changed their attitude towards food and body parts.

Lead author on the study Prof Youl-Ri Kim said: “Our research shows that oxytocin reduces patients’ unconscious tendencies to focus on food, body shape, and negative emotions such as disgust.”

At the moment, there are no drugs to treat the disorder and in extreme cases, counselling has little effect on a person with anorexia because their brain is too undernourished.

“By using oxytocin as a potential treatment for anorexia, we are focusing on some of these underlying problems we see in patients,” added Kim.

Although researchers are still in early stage of the study, we still think it’s a perfect excuse to get snogging!
