Demi Lovato Partners With Fabletics to Fight Against Unrealistic Body Standards
Demi Lovato is using her creativity to combat the unrealistic outlook on women's bodies.
With a publicized eating disorder and stay in rehab, Demi has always been open about her struggles and how she has worked to overcome them in hopes of inspiring others. Lovato says that she is now "happier and healthier than ever" and, after meeting Kate Hudson at the gym (go figure), is now releasing her second collection with Hudson's Fabletics activewear brand for women.
The collection consists of many stand out pieces and designs such as criss-cross banded leggings and mesh hoodies ranging from sizes XS to 3X. Her inspiration while creating her collection came from knowing that she was taking body positivity head on and creating fitness gear that anyone can wear "at any age and still look cute."
"We live in a day and age where everybody is different," says Lovato. "We all have different body types, different shapes, and sizes, and it's important not to exclude anybody." Growing up in the media, Demi often speaks about the pressure to be thin and stick to stereotypical beauty standards. However, she does think that today more people are aware of the benefits of body positivity and the need for body diversity to be represented in the general public.
"There are tons of different body shapes and sizes all over the world. I wish I had seen that when I was younger. Had it been more prominent then, I might not have had body image issues at a young age," says Demi. "When you see all different shapes and sizes, you're able to look at yourself and know that you're unique and beautiful the way you are."
