Is That Fashion Brand Really as Inclusive as They Seem?

Some brands are lying about their inclusion when in fact they are exploiting us for their own greed.

Brands are NOT inclusive if they are just throwing freebies at you but not posting your bodies on their main social media pages.
They are gaining sales and followers from your advertisement and that’s why they do it. It’s evident they are afraid to show our “real” bodies.

Brands are NOT inclusive if you have to have a minimum number of followers to be featured on their site or social media. This again creates more sales to benefit them. Having real people is what should matter to them.

Brands are NOT inclusive if they just focus on one disability, for example, only using those in wheelchairs or those with stomas.
They should be doing their research and use their following to gather more representation.

Brands are NOT inclusive if they don’t think about the vulnerability of others. They should be supportive rather than seeing someone as just a number.

More needs to be done by these brands who have the power to create change by paving the way and breaking the mold. True representation is needed to help those struggling with body confidence and to break down beauty standards for our future generations.

One perfect body does NOT exist, because we are all perfect in our own unique way.
