Lauren Conrad Won't Use "Body Shaming" Words Anymore

Those words will be "unwritten." Sorry, I had to.

Lauren Conrad is the Queen of All Instagram, and the head of a lifestyle empire.

You may remember her from a couple of little shows called Laguna Beach and The Hills, NBD.

She also runs her own lifestyle site called LaurenConrad.com.

The site offers fashion, crafts, food, and home stuff. And tons of fitness stories, too.

Today on the site, Conrad announced that while she'll continue to run fitness and workout content, she's banning "body-shaming" words, moving forward.

"When we’ve talked about getting in shape in the past, words like 'skinny,' 'slim,' and 'thin' have often come up," she wrote.

"Starting this month, we’ll be banning any body shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like 'fit,' 'toned,' and 'healthy.'"

"We try do to this for the most part anyway, but now we’re making it official!" she continued. From now on, the site will only use the word "skinny" to refer to skinny jeans.

"We try do to this for the most part anyway, but now we’re making it official!" she continued.

From now on, the site will only use the word "skinny" to refer to skinny jeans.

Why the change? "My editorial team and I had a long talk about it, and we want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale," wrote Conrad.

"Every body is created differently—and healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes."

It's worth noting, however, that Conrad's Paper Crown clothing collection only sells items up to a size 8.
