For someone born in the (nevermind :P), it's a new word for me. I grew up without hearing it. Back then, weight/size issues were always swept under the carpet, hidden until it was too late.
Insecurities about our body is dangerous and many good people have been lost too soon because of this.
Body shaming is real and drastic actions need to be done in order to address this issue properly.
A company that recognizes this is SM.
In their efforts to make every woman learn how to appreciate every inch of themselves, they have launched several campaigns and new lines for every age and body type.
SM Woman ambassador Melania Solano shares, “I love the fact that different kinds of Filipina women with different body types were chosen for a campaign. It’s great to get behind a socially responsible message.”
The tone was set earlier this year with their Dare to Denim campaign which encourages all women to love their bodies and be confident in their own skin.
It received an overwhelming response from women all over the Philippines so being the pioneer that they are, SM Woman has decided to go further and break down the limitations of body standards.
For a glimpse of their new offerings, check out these videos below:
