It really bothers me that mainstream body image activists tend to pick and choose their battles, focusing primarily on larger sizes and sexuality while ignoring the small.

No matter how your life changes, your style will always be yours. So why would you ever wear something that didn't make you feel good? Style is what you make it. It's personal and it should reflect who you are. So if you're not feeling that pair of Uggs or just don't feel comfortable in skinny jeans -- don't wear them.

Israel's has recently banned "too-skinny" models requiring they must have a BMI of at least 18.5 in order to work. There are very strict rules about using models who fall below the magic number. However, this ruling is unfair. BMI is, after all, not always an indicator of health -- there have been many publications that have proven that. For example, people with very light bones and athletes are more likely to fall out of said number, and still be relatively healthy. In addition, one can meet these minimum requirements, yet still look extremely thin -- muscle, after all, weighs more than fat.
