Holy, faja y chichos! Snooki recently fell for the celeb waist training trend. Nicole Polizzi showed off her new faja while admitting to fans on Instagram, "Every mom needs a little extra help sometimes." There's no denying that! The 26-year-old reality television star and fiance Jionni Lavalle welcomed their daughter Giovanna Marie LaValle back in September. In almost two months, the fit mom has bounced back into shape like a pro and wait until you see how tiny her waist looks in the waist trainer!
Kanye may be able to stare at Kim Kardashian's butt #AllDay, but Sir-Mix-a-Lot says he could totally pass on that…booty. The rapper says he'd much rather look at the glorious glutes that inspired his iconic track Baby Got Back. I'm talking about the one and only Jennifer Lopez. Can I get an Amen?
Leave it to Ninel Conde to post a sexy selfie just weeks after giving birth. It seems like she has a lot in common with Kim Kardashian. The Mexican actress, who welcomed her son Emmanuel at the end of October, bounced back from her pregnancy and showed off her flat belly to prove it. Now, Ninel is taking a similar approach with her cleavage as well. Ay, some people are such attention seekers.
The next time you go to the dermatologist, you'll be able to say, "Fill her up!" when it comes to your breasts. A new popular procedure known as the Botox boob job makes it easier for women to get fuller and less saggy breasts. Aging breasts no longer have to be a part of our vocabulary. Soon enough, Botox boobs will be used as frequently as selfies, and yes, even belfies. This may sound like a dream to some women, but it is really safe and effective?
For years now, we've heard study after study suggesting that the average American woman wears a size 14. And yet many plus-sized women grapple with self-esteem issues rooted in unrealistic and narrow representations of female body types within the media, the fashion industry's long-standing refusal to even acknowledge the proprotions of the average female consumers, and the mean-spirited remarks made by peers, colleagues, and so-called friends. After years of dealing with chastisement, mockery, and derision, one plus-size woman decided to stand up to body-shaming bullies by putting together a plus-size swimwear lookbook--in the form of a video--in which she flaunts her figure and expresses her love for the skin she's in, encouraging other women to do the same.
Paige Way was shocked when her boyfriend told her she was too fat to have sex during a romantic vacation and she decided to prove him wrong. Paige was always a chubby kid and she suffered from low self esteem. She was teased about her weight because she carried 322 pounds on her 5 foot, 3 inch frame. She is only 22 years old and she was tired of feeling like an old woman. After her boyfriend made that hurtful comment, she went on a diet and she lost 182 pounds in less than a year.
When Loryn Brantz decided to photoshop some Disney's princesses waistlines, making them look more like real-life women, she had no idea her images were going to have such an impact. She said she was sad after she saw the blockbuster film "Frozen" because she realized the main character's bodies hadn't changed since the sixties. With all the issues surrounding body image, eating disorders and depression among teenage girls and little girls, it seems like Disney is a bit outdated. To tell you the truth, her updated version of the princesses looks better and maybe it's time for animators to start shaping these women more realistically.
Victoria's Secret is catching some serious heat after unveiling its latest ad campaign, which features models with impossibly flat abs, stick think legs, and gaps between their thighs posing in push up-bras and low-cut panties--the words "The Perfect Body" superimposed over the image in large white letters. British students Frances Black, Gabriella Kountourides and Laura Ferris drew up a petition on Change.org demanding that the company apologize for the use of the phrase "Perfect Body" and acknowledge the harmful impact these words have on young girls, many of whom already struggle with insecurities regarding their bodies. In their call to action, the activists also urged people to tweet @VictoriasSecret using the hashtag #iamperfect. As of Thursday morning, the petition had amassed over 9,000 signatures.
Celebrities: they're just like us. They crave cheeseburgers and fries, and occasionally feel guilty about scarfing down that half-pint of Ben & Jerry's during a recent Scandal marathon. Hey, it happens. However, unlike most of us, celebs have personal trainers and celebrity chefs on hand to help them lose the extra pounds. Not fair, right? Well…I may have found a way to get all the benefits of a pricey celeb workout without having to spend a single penny.
A Gloucester, New England girl lost a startling amount of weight after taunts from a family member sent her into a scary downward spiral that almost resulted in her death. A family member made "a daft little joke" about 17-year-old Deanna Carter's weight and called her "thunder thighs," which really damaged Carter's self-esteem and sent her into a deep depression and eating disorder. What until you hear how much weight the teen lost in just one year.
