Why These T-Shirts?
I designed these body justice, size-inclusive tees to start a conversation around diet culture and systems of oppression, including weight stigma:
Diet culture believes that bodies are healthy or unhealthy based on size, and thinner is better even at the expense of physical and mental health. This culture harms self-esteem, promotes disordered eating, and leads to future weight gain. It puts the focus on appearance, rather than transformative work that can truly better your life and relationships (including the one with your body).
Fat phobia is harming bodies. It prevents quality medical and eating disorder treatment by neglecting a person's symptoms, behaviors and own lived experience because of a number on the scale.
This is about reclaiming one's space in society with their voice, body and truth. It upholds stories of body liberation, rejecting diet culture and creating a world where all bodies can show up and receive kindness. This level of respect and freedom is necessary to promote wellbeing.
Do you see something missing here?
If you don't find a color or size you need, or prefer a unisex tee, just message me and I'll be happy to help! It's important to me that you feel represented here.
