“Did you recently put on a lot of weight? You weren’t this big in previous full body photographs. What brought on the weight gain? I’m concerned for your health.”
I was just about to go to sleep when I received this message from a complete stranger.
The photo in question? An image of myself I posted on Instagram wearing a pair of dark blue skinny jeans.
In the post, I wrote about how I associate wearing jeans with not fitting in or feeling good enough. About how they’re the one item of clothing I feel least comfortable in, but I’m wearing them because the only way to be comfortable with the uncomfortable is to keep doing it anyway.

Influencer-In-Training is back and she’s wearing @cottonon Curve jeans! Full transparency: When I saw this month’s focus was denim, my heart sank a little bit because jeans are the one item of clothing I feel least comfortable in. If you’ve ever found yourself profusely sweating in a change room with denim stuck around your thighs, you know how tricky jeans can be. I’ve also never understood the people who chill in jeans like I chill in… pyjamas ???? BUT these jeans were pretty comfy practically and I love the colour. I may not have felt super confident in them (it’s not you, jeans, it’s me) but I guess the only way to be comfortable with the uncomfortable is to keep doing it anyway! ❤️❤️ #cottononcrew
