Dove Beauty Bias

#BeautyBias - weight

We all know society has very set ideas of what it means to be beautiful – and it goes far beyond what we can control. Height, weight, hair, age, looks: all these things factor into how we perceive a person’s beauty. But most importantly, these outside factors affect how we judge people on the inside, too – and the effects go deeper than you might think.

We’ve teamed up with Broadly to create a series of films that delve into how beauty standards and bias affect every aspect of our lives, from our careers to our social lives. Check out the films below and let us know: what does #BeautyBias mean to you?

Beauty standards of weight are a form of bias #BeautyBias

Fashion – and society – have dictated the ideal shape and size of our bodies almost too far back to track, and almost every woman struggles with her weight at some point or another. It’s no wonder so many of us feel anxious about the way we look in a bikini – but it is surprising that attitudes to body shapes can go so much deeper than our beauty confidence. Kettie Jean talks to women about how they feel their weight impacts their lives, and how important they feel it is to the people around them.
