If you click around on Lauren Conrad's pretty-in-pink website laurenconrad.com, you'll see it has everything a beauty-minded website should have: style tips, beauty basics, and tons of DIY tricks. But it's missing something pretty major in the hopes of making a change in the fashion world.
She announced the change in her newsletter:
You can expect all the great fitness content you've come to know and love here on the site, including my LaurenConrad.com Bikini Boot Camp series. But, you'll also notice one key difference…
She went on to explain that words like:
…will now be banned from her site.
They will be replaced with words like:
In an effort to steer clear of words that might be interpreted as body shaming, Conrad and her team want to remind her followers that "healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes."
Even though that sounds cliché, it's absolutely true. There are plenty of skinny people who aren't healthy and plenty of healthy people to whom the term "skinny" might not apply.
We're very excited about this positive change and hope that it might even lead to a real adjustment to the beauty industry's vocabulary.
