Reading for details

1.Why are people rejecting the idea of “BM girls”?

a. It brings humiliation to the girls who cannot wear BM clothing.

“For me, the problem was not the fact that I couldn’t purchase your merchandise. The root of my frustration is in the humiliation I felt when I realized that ... I just wasn’t good enough for the Melville brand,” young girl Andy Esmond wrote on the website Odyssey. “I got the message loud and clear: If you don’t have an ‘ideal’ body type, we would rather you not wear our clothing.”

b. The idealization of thinness can be a key factor in exacerbating the illness.

But fashion trends like the Brandy Melville clothing line do nothing to ease the anxiety of negative body image (形象). Instead, they feed it further. In order to achieve such an “ideal” image, some girls develop eating disorders. Even worse, this trend may lead to low self-esteem (自尊), depression (抑郁) and hopelessness.

The current situation

According to a 2018 survey conducted by Youth Select Committee in the UK, 8 in 10 teenage girls in the UK want to change their weight or body shape. In China, more than half of teenagers want to lose weight to make themselves look better, according to a 2018 survey by Southern Weekly.

2. What should companies in fashion do instead?
Fashion retailers should respect diversity in people’s natural body shapes and sizes.

Beauty doesn’t come in a box, or in one form. Just recognize that we are all different and that is something to be celebrated. In fact, accepting your true self can display a natural beauty that cannot be ignored.

Post-reading
What do you think is the real beauty?
have high self-esteem; have a positive attitude toward life; have a kind heart

Kate Winslet, the heroine of Titanic, is always true to herself. She is always confident of herself, regardless of negative remarks on her size by others. She stands out based on her excellent talent instead of a thin image.
