    Dressing For Your Body, Not Your Body Type

    Dressing For Your Body, Not Your Body Type

    When you google “dressing for your body” a lot of different things pop up, most with the goal of looking “flattering.” But wtf does “flattering” even mean? Remy and Emily unpack it all on today’s episode, which is not about dressing for your body type, but dressing FOR your body (yes, there’s a difference). They discuss a recent article about the workplace dress code post-Covid, which begs the question—what is considered distracting clothing, and why? This leads into a convo about personal uniforms, and Remy and Emily share their go-to looks. They wrap up unpacking the associations that come with the term “dressing for your body,” before working through that oh-so-relatable feeling of thinking you “could never wear” certain clothes. Empire waists, anyone?

    Why Don’t We Talk About Body Image In School?

    Why Don’t We Talk About Body Image In School?

    Today's ep starts with Remy’s fav platform—TikTok. She and Emily discuss some recent videos that Remy found, starting with one about the education of body image in schools (or realistically, the lack thereof). This leads into another video about how speaking negatively about your own body actually opens the door for others to doubt their bodies. Then onto yet another TikTok, which demonstrates a type of immersion therapy. Picture this: a woman is laying on the sidewalk with the purpose of getting weird looks. Remy and Emily unpack how this method could help work through insecurities, and Emily wonders—should she try it? They wrap up the Tik-talk with a vid about how Scott Disick made comments about Kourtney Kardashian’s body when they were together (big yikes there), before getting into today’s Dear DST. It’s all about those uncomfortable experiences when family members comment on your body—even when it’s supposed to be a compliment. Remy and Emily talk about the complex feelings that can arise.

    Body Talk: Emily Shares Her Personal Journ’

    Body Talk: Emily Shares Her Personal Journ’

    TW: This episode discusses restrictive eating, weight loss, and eating disorders, including anorexia and bulimia.
    Now that we’re all good friends here, Emily is getting personal about her body journey. She and Remy preface the episode by saying that their experiences might not be the same as everyone else’s, and that recovery is a lifelong process. Then, Emily gets into her journ’. She shares how weight became a source of guilt in her life, and details how her family played a part, her experience with dieting, her time at fat camp, and how losing weight for her sister’s wedding led to an eating disorder. There is of course the emotional side to this, and they touch on the (groundbreaking) realizations that confidence is different than self esteem, and that being sensitive is absolutely a strength. Emily then shares the final (albeit current) chapter of her body story—how she found intuitive eating and movement. She and Remy wrap up by chatting about bad body image days and read some *v helpful* listener-submitted experiences about getting through them.

    How Can I Actually Enjoy Thanksgiving?

    How Can I Actually Enjoy Thanksgiving?

    Do you ever feel anxious around Thanksgiving? ’Cause, same. Remy and Emily get right to it and chat about all of the things, re: restriction around food, body image issues, difficult moments with family. They unpack the pressures surrounding the holiday, and Emily shares how she has changed her mindset to actually enjoy the day (remember to take it little by little). Then Remy asks the important q: what time do you have Thanksgiving? They get into lots of other listener-submitted Thanksgiving debates: How do you pronounce pecan pie? Is turkey actually good, or is it just a vehicle for gravy? They wrap up sharing some techniques for getting through the tough moments (aka when people make comments about what you’re eating and get into heated political debates). What Remy’s learned? It’s usually best to make your point through tenderness and turkey.

    Two Plus Size Models Were Denied Entry At An LA Club—Sami & Aleen Have Thoughts

    Two Plus Size Models Were Denied Entry At An LA Club—Sami & Aleen Have Thoughts

    Sami is basting it up in the 'burbs (basting a turkey, that is), and she tells Aleen all about her Thanksgiving plans. Everyone’s coming to Sami’s house this year—her dad, her aunt, her newly discovered cousin—and she gets into the various struggles that may arise. Re: gearing up for backhanded compliments. They then transition into an online-meets-IRL topic: former DST guest and model, Ella Halikas, and her friend, Alexa Jay, were denied entry to an LA club due to their weight. Aleen gives an overview of the situation before she and Sami debrief the problematic incident. They relate with their own experiences going to clubs, unpack the nuanced friend-group dynamics that come to light, and address some BTS tea about the club in question (we’re looking at you, Tao Group). Overall, big snaps for Ella and Alexa for speaking up on the topic and opening the space for others to do the same.

    Welcome To The Fat Acceptance Movement Ft. Megan Ixim

    Welcome To The Fat Acceptance Movement Ft. Megan Ixim

    Remy and Emily are joined by a v exciting guest today—fat activist and content creator, Megan Ixim. Emily tells Remy how they originally met (Megan dated one of Emily’s friends), and how Emily remembers Megan as the first person to introduce her to the fat acceptance movement. But before Megan became a fat-positive activist, she was a 9-year-old girl doing Weight Watchers. Megan shares her whole backstory, including how she put in the work to not just feel neutral, but positive about herself. Throughout the episode they touch on it all: eating around others, how to get through bad body days (Megan’s pro tip: dress up and go to Target), the Ella Halikas and Alexa Jay club incident, and the use of the word fat. Megan wraps up by detailing her experiences traveling as a fat person, unpacking how pretty privilege affects how she’s treated, and overall sharing how yes, she is a fat person and yes, she’s living her life.

Love the new hosts

It took a couple of episodes, but I feel a real connection to you two! Thank you for your recent vulnerability! Looking forward to more.

Update

Current review:

I can’t stand all of the therapy speak/wokeness that is being done by the new hosts. Doesn’t seem genuine or relatable. It’s actually a turn off and makes me eye roll. It’s like they are stepping on egg shells wanting to overly not offend anyone which makes it very hard to listen. Annoyed that a once staple in my rotation is now fallen to the wayside.

Old review:

DST is my favorite Betches pod. Sami and Alden are super relatable and I love the variety of guests. I love listening on Sunday’s when I go grocery shopping (helps me get in the heathy eating mood). The only thing that would make it better is if we got it twice a week! :)

Traveling Extraordinaire ,

Not mad, just disappointed

I’m disappointed with the new hosts. A lot of what they say doesn’t set well with me. But mostly, how Emily will say things and then justify it because “she use to be fat” I understand health is non linear journey and looks different for everyone but as the host of a wellness podcast I don’t think she should be justifying that experience.
