Ever feel bad about yourself because of the size of your clothes?
One body-positive blogger is here to tell you dress size doesn’t matter and is nothing more than an insignificant, and often inaccurate, number on a tag.
Michelle Elman, who goes by the username @scarrednotscared, posted a side-by-side picture of herself on Instagram wearing the same size 14 dress five years apart. In 2012, she was a size 14, compared to a size 20 in 2017, and the dress still fits.
This photo is the perfect example to prove Elman’s point: “Numbers don’t mean anything.”
Her post, which had over 8,200 likes as of Monday afternoon, comes with a powerful message about allowing size to dictate how you feel about your body.
