It doesn’t matter the point in history you’re from;
Whether you wore corsets, girdles, or wear spanx.
Woman are always trying to look like they have a thinner waist;
Or, maybe men like them that way?
There’s no point in denying, we are killing our insides,
When we wear ‘shape wear’ day in and out;
To smooth all the bumps and curves,
To make are tummies flat and are thighs thin.
Thank you spanx for all you’ve done.
Your leggings and jeans hold everything in,
And when I choose to wear a dress,
It’s great that I can’t breathe or eat,
You have really set the bar high for what we should look like,
You’re just trying to make women perfect,
And suck the life out of our beauty standards.
When we suffer to be beautiful.
When we suffer to be thin.
