Oprah Magazine Slammed for Body Shaming

Oprah Magazine received criticism on Instagram when plus fashion blogger Sarah Chiwaya, also known as Curvily, posted a picture of an excerpt from the magazine addressing a reader’s question about crop tops:

Q: Can I pull off a crop top?

A: If (and only if) you have a flat stomach, feel free to try one. For more coverage, layer the top over a longer shirt as shown in look two.

Many Instagrammers took to their accounts to address their thoughts about the Q&A:

The hashtag #PullingOffACropTop has over 700 photos and posts of women sharing their disappointment in the magazine and their love for a body positivity movement.

With role models like Tess Holliday who are breaking barriers for full figured women everyone, brands need to be more aware of the content they’re putting out. Women no longer feel the need to fit into social conformity’s in the world of fashion.

Oprah Magazine has yet to address the Q&A in their magazine but should do so and fast!
