A critique we often make about fashion is that it generally fails to represent a variety of body shapes. Real bodies don’t get represented enough and we want to quit waiting for fashion to get its act together.
At Style Theory, we want to start the conversation about promoting body positivity and celebrate the differences that make the difference–by changing the game on only dressing up to impress to start dressing up for yourself first. We want to encourage #WomenOfStyleTheory with personal stories to inspire others to see it from a renewed body-beautiful perspective and find that self-love and confidence.
Meet Munah, Abhi, Audrey and Isabella.
Myth: Being petite means there isn’t much need to build up strength or muscles.
Embracing fitness and building definition is part of Isabella’s fitness of looking good and feeling better. Addressing the common concern for petite women who are afraid of looking too muscular with an exercise regime, she is finding the right exercises to build lean muscles and definition without looking disproportionate.
Myth: Tall girls have it easier when it comes to dressing up.
Tall girls lament about not having the liberty of wearing heels without towering over their peers, and petite girls dislike walking in heels that hurt their feet all the time. While you can’t please everybody, Abhi knows who to keep happy all the time–herself. Why not wear heels and have as much fun with fashion, especially if you’re tall?
Myth: Moms can’t have fun with fashion. That’s not their priority.
Debunking how moms can’t have it all, supermom Audrey shows how fashion can be very much part of her daily life as she practices self-care amidst the busyness of raising three children. She shares about embracing styles for her pear-shaped body and celebrating motherhood.

Myth: Hourglass bodies have it easy when it comes to style and shopping.
