The early 2000s… it was a weird time for all of us. I was only a kid, but I remember it well. Personally, what I regretted most as a young 8 year old was my sense of style. I think that’s a common early 2000s trend though. Body positivity was not a strong suit for the era, girls were uber skinny and it was a time period that was considered “diet culture”. Diet culture- not really a positive label to put on a time period, don’t ya think?
Oh the 90’s. The rise of Destiny’s Child, NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, all denim everything, Pulp Fiction, Titanic, and Jurassic Park were the top 3 movies of the decade, and a little brand called Victoria’s Secret began their rise to fame. You know the brand, and you most likely know the famous term “Victoria’s Secret Angel”. You have probably heard of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show televised every year, earning over $50 million in 2017. Victoria’s Secret has taken the female undergarment and lingerie industry by storm. They account for one third of the women’s underwear market, leaving everyone in their tracks.
Have you ever looked on social media and been unhappy with yourself afterwords? Do you ever compare yourself to others, or look at adverts and wonder why you don’t look like that? Alternatively, have you seen a post, advert, or commercial that made you feel “normal” or like you are like everyone else.
