Plus Size What?

Plus Size Model

Meet Alice Jackson. Once suffering from anorexia, dropping to 108 lbs at 5’9″, she is now a healthy, happy, gorgeous 154 lb lingerie model. Wait….let’s correct ourselves – gorgeous PLUS size lingerie model.

One of the driving principles of the BaDi practice is to connect or re-connect with your physical self, first and foremost. Many of us have been be plagued by body images issues, dare we say, all of us. And while we here at BaDi are very happy to hear that Alice has found peace and joy being in her skin (and a career!), the industry considers her plus size??? Really????

No wonder it’s a struggle to exhibit self-love and acceptance sometimes. The good news is that every comment linked to this original post on HuffPo is something along the lines of how she’s normal and hardly “bigger” as her new-found career suggests.

Maybe the fashion world is deluded but thank goodness society has some sanity.

Just adhere to the great words of Mary Schmich, immortalized by the fabulous Baz Luhrmann in his 1999 release, “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)”, especially these:
Enjoy Your Body
Use it every way you can
Don’t be afraid of it or what other people think of it
It is the greatest instrument you will ever own
