Thin Privilege is shopping where you want

thisisthinprivilege:

Thin privilege is being able to shop where you want, and not be mocked by the [thin] shop attendants in front of 3 of your best friends

It was a week before prom and I was doing the final try on for the most gorgeous dress. It was one I’d had my eye on for months - a beautiful peach silk dress with a stunning black belt. It perfectly suited my skin and my hair, and my friends agreed it was perfect.

Unfortunately a while back I broke up with my long term boyfriend. I was devastated, and gained a fair amount of weight as a result. I wasn’t thrilled, but I wasn’t starving myself, unhappy or putting my body through pain so I didn’t mind. I was happy with my body and this dress was absolutely sublime.

This meant that the dress didn’t fit me. I was mortified and totally put on the spot in front of my friends. When asked if there was a bigger size available, the shop attendant sneered at us and before she walked away told us to “try sears”. Excuse me? This was for prom, the biggest night this side of college and you don’t go to any effort to help me, and just palm me off to a lower class store because that’s all I deserve?

Thin privilege is being able to get flattering dresses in your size

Thin privilege is being treated with respect by shop assistants

Thin privilege is being able to shop anywhere and not relegated to “cheap” stores

I ended up starving myself to fit in the dress. It was awful and painful, and while it made me look like a rockstar, it was an awful, painful experience

Scenes of Everyday Life and People in 1790 (Source) by Thomas Rowlandson. 
Details: 1. A soldier assessing new recruits for the army. 2. A woman driving a phaeton. 3. Couple walking. 4. A solder escorting two women. 5. A tea party. 6. An equestrian about to go on a ride. 7. An industrious woman sewing.  8. A well-dressed man peers at a woman through his eye-glass. 9. A musical interlude with two ladies. 10. An outing in the country.  12. Bird watching or gazing at ships along the seashore? 13. Arrival at an inn, or examining his accounts? 14. Street vendors.

Rowlandson’s little drawings are so…spot on, arent they. Not even the ones that are meant to be caricatures, just these things. They really capture the late Georgian spirit.

i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
