The year 1900

Plus size woes, my lady?
Crunched up waist,
hold your breath.
Here’s a corset ready.

No more deep breaths,
mind the seams of your dress.
You were made to fit the garb-
the doctrine laid in stone sharp.

The year 2000 to 2014

Plus size woes, my lady?
You hold no chance, baby!
Forget about trolling-party hours.
No more Victoria’s sexy powers.

Size zero rules the world.
Starve yourself or face the insults hurled.
Buy yourself some baggy clothes:
Hide those curves,
Hide that bulge.
Lose your sleepover
petty diets.
Lose your sleepover
ridiculous small-size fight.

The year 2015

Plus size woes, my lady?
No worries, no more turning crazy.
Plus, size equals size zero.
If you are fat, you are my new hero.
You have yourself a whole new clothing
department, a few dedicated designers, and clothes freeing you from confinement.

You can be Victoria’s new model.
I wonder now,
What’s it with the title?
You do realize- You will always be a ‘PLUS SIZE’ model.
