Covet confidence, not beauty

It’s no secret that women are told from the very first day of life (practically) that we should aspire to be pretty. And studies show that achieving the standard of beauty will result in higher wages, more success at work, and often becoming the envy of everyone else who doesn’t meet the standard.

No one has ever asserted that being pretty will make you happy.

You should work toward being confident in who you are, inside and out. It will reduce your stress. It will make you happier. And, believe it or not, it will make you more attractive to those around you.

Check out Lane Bryant’s new ad campaign

Have you checked out Lane Bryant’s new advertising campaign? It’s the best “plus” ad I’ve seen in a while, especially since it’s for lingerie. These women look like women I’d seen in real life… and I write that as a frequent shopper of that store.

The video features Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Candice Huffine, Victoria Lee, Justine Legault, and Elly Mayday.
