This Lingerie Brand Wants You To Love Yourself | My Shopify Business Story


For so much of my life I’ve been told
that there is this one narrative of what sexy and confident is and I never felt
that I could fit into that. I want to encourage women to really you know break
down the narrative that they’ve been raised to believe that isn’t true that
they aren’t good enough or that their value is how they look physically but
their value is who they are, what their heart stands for and there’s so much
more to all women than just our physical bodies. I’m Mary young and I am a CEO and
designer, speaker and self-love advocate. Fashion has always been something I’ve
wanted to get involved in from a very young age I was always obsessed with
clothes I actually wanted to be a model when I was like four or five and then I
kind of broke it down at age six why I want to be a model and I realized it’s
because I loved the clothes. I actually started making clothes for my
Barbies. I was like crocheting like dresses and backpacks and things for them which eventually led me to making my own clothes. The biggest thing that I
want to focus on when I launched Mary Young was to encourage women to feel
good about themselves. For me clothing of any category has always been to make you feel more confident. Most competitors of ours,
it wasn’t about making someone feel comfortable, it was about reshaping the
body into what the industry or what media said was sexy at that time. What makes Mary young the most different is just encouraging women to feel good in who they are and to celebrate that throughout their entire day. I always knew that the brand was going to stand for something but it definitely has
evolved into being more of a lifestyle and a movement more than I could have ever
anticipated as the conversation around empowerment started to grow within my
customers and my community, that led us to start the movement the self-love Club.
The movement isn’t about buying underwear it’s not if you own Mary young
you’re a part of this club but it’s your attitude and your mindset of self-love,
self-care, and empowerment. Inadvertently my brand has become more of a connection between myself and my community I’ve lost my father, I’ve lost
grandparents so sharing things that are sort of real life things that we don’t
openly talk about. To be able to use a platform
that I’ve developed off of a clothing line to actually benefit people in a more
personal way that encourages you know open conversation and sort of the
support system that we can have within each other. After all when a woman feels
good in her skin and she feels confident in who she is, she’s sexy no matter what and
she’s able to achieve anything she wants in her life.

    Stop pandering and lying to women. Unhealthy bodies are not beautiful. And the hypocrisy of saying all bodies are beautiful while wearing a ton of makeup (fakeup) is sickening. Eat right and healthy. Exercise regularly. Stop making excuses. Ditch the fakeup. That’s the advice that women need to hear.

    Womens minds are just pathetic, like they have to lie to themselves to accept themselfs!?!? Wtf is that? I'd say just any sane rational person would consider that pathetic….like when girls post shit on Facebook about "I'm strong I'm brave, I'm worth it!" Like okay susan thanks for reaffirming to everyone that you're NOT…its just weakness in its purest form, women that do this are children emotionally…theyd rather have a comforting LIE than to ever have to face uncomfortable truths….truth doesnt matter to them, FEELINGS DO…that's the definition of illogical..(also why they shouldn't be allowed a vote honestly they're too easily swayed by emotional propaganda rather than facts)..this is why I find it pathetic, no other reason. You're just weak and want others to believe in your delusions about being beautiful if you're fat as fuck….no you need to work out! EARN peoples respect, dont expect us to just give it. How can I respect anyone who doesn't respect themselves enough to stay fit??? Like seriously fuck you you're a disgusting pig of a woman . You cant have your cake and eat it too.

    Weak emotional women want us to believe their delusions so that they can live a comforting lie rather than face uncomfortable truths. We allow them to vote, just remember that….theres a damn good reason almost nobody else ever allowed that throughout history….

    Hey Mary Young how come you're not a healthy fat ass ?. I bet it doesn't feel good not been wanted, just like with us men we don't like it when women likes us because of the car we drive or the house we own or how much money we make, would you go out with a loser beer belly good for nothing type of brotha. I don't think so it goes both ways it's what makes us humans imperfect humans until we matured and realized we love that person for who
    he/she really is, but until then Maria Larosa, Karenina Ortiz, Evelyn Taft, Kelly Ripas daughter, my neighbors wife, among other fine goddesses will be the only thing I will find attractive.

    What I don’t get is why there is so much pressure to be beautiful? Or handsome? Or sexy? Or cool? Even though this advert appears to offer a different angle on women’s lingerie it is still pushing these same old aspirational ideals. Surely these are all just made up aspirations? Why can’t you just ‘be’ without any pressure to be anything? Actually thinking about it they are all just marketing strategies making people feel they are not good enough unless they buy a product! Just like in this advert here! It’s pretending to be forward thinking and understanding to ‘real’ women when it’s just as exploitative and callous as any other brand- just using subtle psychological exploitation instead- jumping on the third wave of feminism going on right now. I hope people aren’t fooled by this new marketing tool!

    And yet the narrator of this a heart warming story, CEO of the company and ‘self love advocate’ is a super skinny model. Also quite happy to use the death of her family relatives to push her clothing line. Disgusting really.

    I find the message hypocritical and 2 faced when I see every "beautiful" woman strip naked to get recognition. As though the real message were, "Hey ladies, no one cares about your genetics or propensity to bathe, just flash your titties and people will pay attention to you".

    The term "Sexy" is used in reference to likelihood that men will desire to have Sex with a woman based on their appearance alone. This Rules out most women on earth.

    Dumb as fuck that you want and support people being confident about themselves nomatter who they are because being fat is unhealthy. Unhealthyness is naturally unnatractive and goes against natural attraction because you see a fat person as not being reliable or useful. They can't hunt your food or protect your future babies etc. It's a primal instinct. And you can't ignore primal instinct. Being fat and unhealthy goes against this specific primal instinct. Yes it's nice to accept it and in today's society it is sort of the norm that you should but that doesn't do our race any favours. It is kind yes. But being kind is not always the best way to be. People only try seeing fat people as attractive because society makes them feel obliged to. I doubt many people deep down genuinely think they are. Being a size 8 or 10, being between 5ft3.5 and 6ft0.5, having a fairly decent sized ass and decent 34cc at least tits is way more attractive, hence should be more acceptable, than other body types. A fat person should not be acceptable just because it's moral to do so as doing it because it is moral is in no way a good enough reason. And before I get hated on. I'm fat myself. I'm a 6ft man with average or less than average muscle and a good 20% body fat weighing 202lbs. So no I'm not looking down on fat people I am one.

    This is true. I do understand that healthy is something you do want. To don't want to be either extreme. You don't want to be a skeleton but you also want a healthy body to you. If you're a bigger girl amazing if you're naturally a skinner girl that's fine it.

    The Triune Nature of God

    In the Trinity,

    the Father is the Manager.
    The Son is the Lover of the Operations.
    Holy Spirit is the Worker.

    The 3 in 1 getting things done.

    He is Papa-He is Healer-He is Helper.

    The World was created by only 3 functions that went like this:

    Father thought it.
    Son loved it.
    Holy Spirit carried out the plan.

    That is how the Trinity works/functions. In perfect synergistic harmonization.

    So man must voice,

    Father, what do you think?
    Jesus, what do you love?
    Holy Spirit, what should we do about it?

    That's our mission. #Jesus

    Ugly fat chicks: I'm more than my face or body. I have value.

    Random person: here's two pics. Would you date the fit guy or the fat guy?

    Ugly fat chicks: uh the fit guy, obviously.

    The irony here phenomenonal. The model selection alone shows the point. Her words, 'when a woman feels confident in her skin'. I thought you were trying to discourage body based prejudice. Why isn't it when a woman feels confident in her mind or with her skills? You're selling lingerie which decorates the body, don't try and pretend like it does anything else. Us guys love you women in all of your weird and wonderful shapes and sizes. It's women who torment other women over such things.

    I'm confused, watched this ad about empowerment and then went to check out her brands website. I might have missed something but the models she uses are all quite thin and small chested. Not sure where the inclusiveness of her brand comes in?

    It's really sad that you guys think that being a little more chubby is terrible or the worst thing. While they showed those models you didn't listen to the words about self love. It's sad why don't you try loving yourselves first and then maybe you would understand

    I go to the website to see if it's really "all body inclusive" and it's barely minimally inclusive to "regular" bodies…first, the models are still like size 0s in spite of the fact that they show one with stretch marks and the sizing???…'x-small to large' barely covers majority of women's body types. It says it supports A & B cups…wtf are the rest of the "beautiful bodies of every shape and size" supposed to do with this "motivating" self-love brand then…smh hate to sound like a hater but that's disappointing to hear this great message then see that the website still caters to the typical standard that makes women feel like they're less than..

    Beauty can be a trend, but the reason "thinness" is attractive is actually biological. Humans are attracted to health.

    Not every women is raised with this evil narrative that she is not desired based on appearance. Women just seem to be born insecure and vain And that insecurity is guided by other women and certain trends.

    Self love is one thing, but their is a thin line between love and hate. Some folks do self destructive things to themselves that is pure deceit and claim oh I love myself… And there should be a line between loving who you are versus saying I accept myself even though I’m unhealthy. This is what Monique the comedian learned the hard way.

    Self-love is not about letting unhealthy people love themselves. That mindset in itself is unhealthy. Self-love is about accepting things about yourself that you cannot change. Such as your race, your age, your gender, your personality. Self-love is not about accepting things about yourself that you CAN change. Such as your weight, behavior, and academic performance. Don't use self-love as an excuse to be extra lazy ya focking whales.

    I have one thing to say, if you truly believe yourself to be beautiful. Don’t do things that harm you. If you love yourself, care for yourself. Mentally, emotionally, and in this case physically.

    Even your "plus" sized models are hot. Throw in a bed bound person from "My 600 lb Life" with extreme cellulitis, then I might believe that YOU believe your own crap.

    Amen!!! How do i explain to a woman that i have been married to for 8 years that I love her!!! Not what she thinks her body has become? Yes, he's has gained some weight, but who hasn't? I love this woman, but she has become convinced that her body defines who she is… A happily married man looking for advice. Thank you.
