As a girl I would pour over my moms fashion magazines. I loved the clothes, the textures, the colours, the silhouettes; each piece was so different. I would cut up the pictures and make collages to hang on my wall, but I never once saw a person who looked like me on a single page. For years what I saw became an unattainable goal and instead of those pretty outfits that I admired, it ended up being a wall of pictures that represented my self hate.
This level of hate permeated how I felt about about myself almost my entire life. It wasn’t until I started seeing women who were all different sizes and actually looked like me that I was able to love and be inspired by them, and then in turn love myself.
Ever since I remember seeing a Dove commercial featuring all different body shapes and sizes, I have always been drawn to the brand. My greatest wish is for the newest generation of girls to grow up in a world surrounded by ever shape and size in the media, and Dove truly was at the forefront of that. Now, they have taken it to the next level by creating these unique shaped and sizes body wash bottles, truly showing that each and every one is beautiful.
I am proud to use my curvy bottle of body wash, and next I can’t wait to crack open the tall one, until I use each one. I love the symbolism Dove has created with each one, because no one would ever look at any of these bottles and say ” that bottle is ugly” or “that one is the wrong shape” and especially not “that bottle should work to try and look like this bottle,” so why do we with human bodies?
Celebrate with me and for a limited time only pick up your unique #RealBeauty Dove body wash bottle, and remember each one is beautiful. Be sure to join in the conversation to show all women and girls that they are beautiful by using #RealBeauty on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
