in my opinion, clothing size is less important than style, intellect, curiosity, and a (hopefully sparkling and witty and smart) way with words. however, not everyone feels this way— whether they feel pressured to be a certain size because of themselves or their work environment, the sad reality is that there are people (not just in fashion, obviously) who spend an outsize amount worrying about their bodies or weight when they should be focused on health (and career). it’s a shame (I know I can’t think when I’m hungry). anyway, my personal stance is that people should be the change they want to see. so if you want to be a plus size fashion writer—do it with confidence!
