DENIM MADE WITH CURVES IN MIND / AD

I must be brutally honest here when I admit that recently Iโ€™ve been struggling with body-image. Mine is a body that I donโ€™t see represented enough, and a body that doesnโ€™t fit into either the โ€œregularโ€ or โ€œplus-sizedโ€ box. Iโ€™m not thin, Iโ€™m not fat - Iโ€™m that โ€˜in the middle, still working off that Christmas bingeing' size.
