22 Struggles You'll Recognize If You've Got An Average Body...Whatever That Means

You'd say you've got an "average" body type, but WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!

Posted on

1. You can never relate to department store commercials because the models look nothing like you.

What about models who are somewhere in between small and medium, or medium and large, or any other shape imaginable?

2. But TBH you're not really a medium either because your weight fluctuates within that poor neglected abyss between small/medium and medium/large.

3. You spend your days surfing the internet, desperately searching for novel fashion ideas and style advice.

But, alas, no fashion blog or Pinterest board caters to women who simultaneously belong to sizes S, M, and L.

4. You can't buy clothes online because you know you have to try things on before you buy them.

5. And sometimes, to avoid the frustration, you don't even go shopping at all.

That way, you save money, too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

6. You hate taking photos because sometimes you never know what you're going to end up looking like.

One thing's for sure, you're NOT going to end up looking like yourself.

7. When someone tells you that you look "good" in a photo, it makes you happy, but afterward, the suspicions begin.

So does that mean I look bad in all my other photos?

8. People get sick of hearing about how you're not at your ideal weight.

You: "I should get in shape."

Your friends: "We think you look great!"

You: "But I want to look more great."

9. And it just doesn't make sense to you when your friends all say that they'd die to have your figure.

You know they're lying to you, and you don't understand why they bother doing it.

10. Or when someone with a similar body as yours complains about not feeling good about their figure.

We're in this together.

11. You're always considering making changes to your diet.

Emphasis on CONSIDERING.

12. But after a few days of healthy eating, you're so beaten down that even the thought of a salad brings you to tears.

13. Because deep down, you know the delicious, beautiful bliss that is high-calorie food.

When you take that first post-diet mouthful of pasta, all you can think about is how #blessed you are to live in a world filled with such culinary miracles.

14. And besides, you get enough of a workout putting on your jeans in the morning as you would by going to the gym.

If sex burns calories, this must too, damnit.

15. Speaking of jeans, finding a good pair for your body is nearly impossible.

When they make your butt look fantastic, they look terrible in the front, and vice versa. Tragic.

When they make your butt look fantastic, they look terrible in the front, and vice versa. Tragic.

16. So you almost always end up settling on jeggings instead.

At least that way they'll look either amazing or awful from ALL angles.

17. The very thought of swimsuit shopping is more stressful than finals, finding a job, and moving out of your parents' house combined.

Does ANYONE like shopping for swimsuits?!

18. Your closet is full of dresses that accentuate your waist.

Because you may as well flaunt what you've got!

19. And Spanx.

Don't lie, you love them more than anything on this earth.

20. The majority of your clothing needs more than a little adjustment to make it look good on you.

ESPECIALLY if it's a formal dress that's supposed to hug your figure.

21. The good thing is, you know these struggles are worth it, because you and your body are sensational.

22. And when the blessed miracle of finding something that fits just right occurs, you feel like a goddess descended from Mount Olympus.
