Lane Bryant Strives to Reboot What Sexy Means
With all the talk surrounding women’s rights, rape culture, and body image it can be hard to know what’s okay to say and what’s going to get you into trouble – even when you mean well. “Real women have curves” has become a catch-phrase and hashtag that might make plus-size women feel empowered, but just-as-real women who are naturally thin and NOT curvy take exception.
