Are Big Women Beautiful?
By Jennifer Holdren
The ultimate question for us bigger women. The answer is not simple. Sure, there are thousands out there that love bigger women and some of those men are even called "chubby chasers", a term in which I find a slight crude. I have struggled for years with being a larger woman never satisfied that my own personal weight was acceptable. I see hundreds of other women and think how beautiful they are no matter the size and think "why can't I be that pretty?" The fact is, as cliche as it sounds, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have come to terms with my figure and learned to embrace it. Love it. I flaunt the features I am proud of and do not feel like I have to be a size 2 or 0 to conform to other people's ideals of 'beauty'. I wish every woman out there could take a step back, and realize that she is beautiful in her own way. Be proud of who you are, and love your body just the way it is.
