How’s your body image?


Your Body Image is 48% Unhealthy, 52% Healthy


You may think you have a normal body image, but you definitely don’t.
While you may not have a serious problem, you obsess over your looks way too much.

How’s Your Body Image?

Obsessing about our bodies has become this generation’s favourite pastime, really. So Beautiful Women Project (found via raincoaster), a touring art exhibition of life-sized torsos of real women aged 19-91, was created to question and redefine what beauty really is, their objectives being

    Raising awareness of the link between self-worth and society’s attitude toward physical appearance
    To challenge socially-constructed images of beauty
    To raise awareness and open a dialogue about the link between self-worth and physical appearance
    To be a teaching and healing tool

Think it’s a great project. It may not appeal to the masses, but it’s enough if it reaches out to the few people it did. And love the artwork painted on the plaster torsos.

The t-shirt looks awesome! Simple in design but effective in its message.

  1. it’s definitely a message that needs to get out there.

    sulz: it is, and it should be targeted at grassroots level. am not saying to show this exhibition to 5-year-olds if their parents don’t approve of them seeing boobs at their age, but perhaps girls between 10 to 12 years old where they’re aware of their bodies and have yet to form a definite idea of physical beauty.

    Ha, I was contemplating printing a tee that says “I will starve myself to be skinny like them ugly girls (but for some sick reasons men prefer that)”
    But my friend says too wordy. True.

    sulz: not to mention it’ll drive any potential guys. mean, even a guy who does not look out for lollipop girls would be a little intimidated by that t-shirt! get that t-shirt above instead; at least if ever a guy comes up to you and talks about that shirt, you’d know he has some amount of intelligence and opinion about the issue.

  3. […] found this post about the “beautiful woman project” and found it intresting. I am glad that someone out […]

  4. i agree, teach them the true meaning of beauty before the media has a go at their impressionable minds.

  5. Studies show men do not prefer underweight women to overweight ones, except the rare straight men who work in media industries like fashion or tv. It’s the corporations that do, and they reinforce it in many ways.

    sulz: no way, asian men prefer their girls stick thin and petite, and if not thin, she’d better not be fat then. how else can you explain self’s availability for 21 years now? lol, nah, don’t answer that, it’s rhetorical, honestly.

  6. They’re intimidated by your brains. Perhaps you should hook up with some guys from Micronesia, they loves some curves!

    sulz: what brains? haha! how’d you know that? micronesia… is that like microsoft land or something? lol
