Beautiful In Every Size: A Writing Cue With KAARYAH

Posted: April 10, 2016

Women’s Web is bringing the popular #BreakingBarriers event to Pune, Panjim, Hyderabad, Kolkata & Coimbatore. Register

Participate in this writing contest supported by KAARYAH. Share what ‘Beautiful In Every Size’ means to you, and win prizes.

Think about size. Is small always beautiful? No. Beautiful can be of any size.

Beautiful, here, need not be about the standard idea of bodily beauty. It could be inner beauty. It could be the beauty of new life – tiny in its size, but huge in its potential. It could be the beauty of a child who might be what is called an ‘old soul’ – someone who shows a promise and achievement beyond the years. A short, succinct phrase can often convey a meaning that might not really come across in a longer sentence.

It works the other way too. Many swear by the larger format of a test match, as against the T20 format that finishes much too soon – though that certainly has its own excitement.

It need not be the extremes of small or big either! An ordinary, everyday experience of life might conceal multitudes of beauty within, which might not be in a supposedly extraordinary one.

Women come in all sizes and shapes. It is not necessary that standard sizes in clothes available in the market fit all. This is the ordinary urban Indian woman’s experience – difficulties in finding a brand of clothes that fit her, on account of being a pear-shaped/tall willowy type/stocky body type. (You may consider your own body type here). You find that it is difficult to find clothes that fit you, which you need to get tailored every time, the effort eating into your already busy schedule.

Now imagine that there comes a brand that takes care of all these problems. They also offer mix-n-match options and options specific for your measurements. Won’t you want to explore them for wardrobe possibilities?

KAARYAHKAARYAH has a solution for all these problems – they offer wardrobe solutions for all body types.
