In a world where our perception is shaped by exposure, my coming-of-age era was marked by the ‘heroin chic’ trend of the 90s supermodels—tall, skinny figures with straight hair, epitomizing a particular beauty ideal alongside the Pamela Anderson aesthetic.

The message was clear: you could be tall or short, skinny with big or small breasts—those were the options.

Reflecting on this, I can’t help but wonder how different my view of my body would be if I had more diverse role models during my formative years. While some may argue for modesty, I believe this movement is not just for me but for my daughters and yours—a push towards normalizing authentic, diverse, and feminine bodies that are beautiful and life-giving.

In a society that bombards us with unrealistic ideals, it’s essential to redefine beauty standards and emphasize the beauty of normalcy. By embracing authenticity, we pave the way for a healthier perception of ourselves and for future generations. We are not just individuals; we are daughters, and we owe it to them to foster a world where every body is celebrated and embraced.
