In a new interview posted to Obsessee’s Instagram feed on Wednesday, Jordyn Woods—Kylie Jenner‘s best friend who has risen as a celebrity in her own right, thanks to her budding modeling career—is speaking out against how the fashion industry treats “plus-size” and “curve” clothing. Spoiler: She thinks those sections should cease to exist altogether.
“Yes, I’m a ‘curve’ model, but to be completely honest, I feel like there should be no separate sections in fashion—there should just be one,” she tells Obsessee. “If it fits, it fits, and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. For example, low-rise works for some people, and high-waisted works for others, and it’s cool to have separate sections like that, but when it comes to sizing, I feel like there should be one category and enough options for everyone.”
Woods went even further to explain that separating people’s shopping sections based purely on body size can be damaging to confidence. “It takes time to come into yourself and realize your worth and realize your place and try to fit in, and for some people, it doesn’t happen until way later in life, but, luckily for me, I realize I am around people, and I can’t try to be like anyone else because I am me, and that’s what’s cool about me,” she says. “No one else is me, no one else looks like me, has my body type, and I don’t look like them, so why would I try to fit in these standards and fit in this clothing?…If I feel good about myself, then no one can really say anything to me that will affect me.”
Her advice on how to remember how amazing you are on a daily basis? “It’s not just about fashion and confidence in what you look like. It’s confidence in anything you do. It’s knowing you’re the best, knowing you’re bound to be great, killing it in every aspect of life. Whether it’s just waking up and turning on your favorite song and looking in the mirror and just feeling good about life. Make every day count because you can’t take life for granted.”
