The Next Time Someone Body Shames You, Clapback With These 12 Savage Responses

We live in a world with impossible beauty standards. You can be conventionally pretty, but society will say you're 'overweight'. You could have a 'thin' body, but people would call you flat-chested. You could have gorgeous curls or silky straight hair--and they would both be considered 'not trendy' depending on the year.

A few years ago, size zero was sexy and now women with chiselled abs are considered beautiful. Pencil-thin eyebrows were all the rage in the 90s but it's thick, fuller brows that are considered attractive. Are you noticing a pattern here? It is literally impossible to be 'beautiful' at all times because women are considered objects whose beauty goes in and out of fashion, like handbags.

And when you begin to love and accept yourself, body shamers have absolutely zero effect on your self-esteem. So, learn how to practice self-love every day, and soon you'll be confident enough to show body shamers the finger.
