SAY SORRY AND EAT MIRCHI

Body shaming, a term that has become all too popular recently because humans are obsessed with appearances. We create these standards that we must live up to and then ridicule those same standards when we realize that they are unattainable. We criticize the way others look but then shame them when they do the same to us. We have separated ourselves into categories based on the way we look. It’s fat against a fit battle which it is wrong.

We as fashion stylists faced some major concerns while chatting with our users regarding their body types, complexion, height, etc., When our stylist used to ask the customers about their body type or their waist size or bust size is, no one seemed to be comfortable sharing the information with us being conscious of their body. Some feel they are too skinny, some feel they are very fat, or obese or chubby, or being too short in height or too tall. The reason that we connected to the campaign on body shaming is that we want not just our customers but every individual to feel comfortable with what and how they are and accept it the way it is and not feel any less beautiful about themselves. So, as to make them feel beautiful and not bother what the society thinks about them we started this campaign on body shaming.

We need this to stop and end right here because it has some seriously dangerous effects on people who have suffered this or are still suffering from this. So we have brought up this fun challenge which aims to make all those who have done this feel guilty and never do this again and those who still do this for their entertainment should stop it.
