People Told Her Not to Wear Leggings Because She Was Too Fat. Then, She Posted These 4 Photos…

We live in a time where women AND men are shamed for not being a certain body type, shamed for wearing certain types of clothing, or shamed for being disabled. Unfortunately, some insecure people need to be mean to others in order to feel good about themselves and it is so easy hiding behind an avatar on social media.

One young woman, Sara Petty, was tired of reading the body shaming messages that were being expressed by people on social media that she decided to post 4 photos of herself wearing her favorite clothes. She shut down the haters with one simple sentence, “Girls: Wear whatever the hell you want.”
