Is the ‘perfect body’ a myth?

Is the ‘perfect body’ a myth? Posted on June 12, 201612 Comments

MY TAKE ON BODY-CON DRESSES

Hello, guys! How are you all? I was recently going through my closet and I realized that I have no body-con dresses. I’ve been really conscious of my body. I used to think that only girls with a perfect body can rock such dresses. That, however, has changed! I’ve become much more confident about my body type and have learnt to embrace it.

In my opinion, a perfect body doesn’t exist. How can it? After all we’re just humans. All of us come in different shapes and sizes and we should be very happy about it. I know it’s much easier to say than to feel it but that’s just how it is for me and it makes me happy. I know that a lot of girls struggle with accepting the way they look or the body-type that they have but it should not be the case. All of us are much more than our weight and our faces. All of us are unique in our own little way and that is what makes us so special. Yes, all of us!

Coming back to the dress, I chose a deep red, floral dress and I was very happy with the way it looked on me! I don’t have a flat stomach and you can see it when I wear the dress but I don’t care about it. Wearing this dress gives me happiness and that is the only thing that matters. Today, I’m breaking the myth of having a perfect body to wear a certain piece of clothing by wearing something that I never thought was made for me!

Also, people who say that you can’t wear a body-con during the day time are wrong. So girls, let’s not listen to them? For the day look, I paired my dress with a denim vest (a jacket too would work perfectly) and my favorite white sneakers. Tied my hair in a pony-tail and finished off the look with my favorite sunglasses.

For the more fancy, evening look, I wore a dark red lipstick , kept my hair open and wore a pair of golden flats. I wanted it to be fancy but still comfy! I didn’t opt for a pair of heels this time and I have no regrets! Two bracelets, a ring, and a pair of hoop earrings were the only accessories I needed.

  1. hey! i simply love what you write but, on the contrary of the above post i do not think that ” the perfect figure” is a myth. i think it is totally achievable. even i had a perfect figure at a point of time but i ate my way through it to the fat figure i have now but i am still proud of it 😀
    anyways the point is the so called perfect figure is achievable but that doesn’t mean your present figure is any bad, you just have to learn to love yourself and be proud of yourself no matter what:)

    no hard feelings though, and you look amazing in the dress! love it !

    1. Hi Priya! Thank you so much. 🙂 No hard feelings at all, I completely understand what you’re saying but my point here is that the society has already made a strict definition of a perfect body and I believe that the concept is subjective which simply rules out the possibility of a single definition of a perfect body. However, it makes me really happy that someone has read and presented a view on this. Thank you again. Lots of love. xx
