“Beauty is Pain”

Posted on: December 7, 2009

It’s been famously said that “Beauty is Pain”, and honestly how can you not agree?!  Ever since the days with corsets, girdles, and hoop skirts women around the world have not strayed far from the uncomfortable apparel to look good in the eye of society, and not too much has changed after all this time.  We may not wear corsets or girdles everyday instead we’ve graduated to far better things like stilettos, heeled boots, and even Spanx!  Of course these are all things which make us look better none which are comfortable by any means.  I, like many girls out there, often try to convince myself that wearing cute shoes all day is worth it!  That is until I come home to blisters, soreness, and my pride all which does nothing to help the throbbing pain in my feet. 

Sure we women have rallied throughout time…women running for president, women CEO’s, women’s professional sports, and more, but I hate to be the bearer of bad news!  We haven’t come quite as far as we thought in the fashion world.  From not being able to breathe to elevating our height at a steep slant to wearing undergarments that force fat into unknown places. It’s amazing that at some point our common sense has yet to sink in.

Where did comfort get lost in the mix and growth of fashion throughout all these years?!!  Will our only resort be Dr. Schultz cushions and cotton clothes??  If so…here’s a toast to the next 100 years of beauty and pain.  May your feet be pedicured (often), stomach be sucked in (frequently), and prayers for comfort and style  to be combined be answered (soon…preferrably).
