Promotional feature with Fantasie
Conversations around representation are nothing new, with everything from race to sexual and gender diversity being quite rightly widely discussed and increasingly celebrated.
So it’s fascinating to discover independent research that suggests that women aged between 35 and 54 feel largely ignored – by advertisers, by the high street, even by the body positivity movement. And this is the generation that represents a third of the population UK-wide.
Ironically perhaps then, the same research reveals that the women in the upper half of this age group feel most comfortable in themselves. Which is what the latest campaign by lingerie specialist Fantasie – which celebrates the uniqueness of all kinds of women and their personal journeys – sets out to celebrate.
Make-up artist beauty pioneer Sam Chapman (@samchapman) understands this first-hand. ‘Caring about what people think really limits what you can do in your everyday life,’ she says. ‘Letting go of that is the most amazingly rewarding experience.’
Fantasie has long understood that true personal empowerment comes from how you feel in your skin, not just how you look – that’s why it’s always focused on creating underwear that fits as good as it looks. Its latest campaign showcases five prominent influencers and shares their journeys to self-acceptance.
As multi-award-winning @notlamb style blogger Catherine Summers puts it: ‘I’m just really happy with the person I’ve become.’
Words we should all be saying.
