To take a stand against women's body image issues related to the fashion industry, the UK's Women’s Equality Party has started the social media campaign #NoSizeFitsAll, asking women to share pics of their clothing size labels during London's Fashion Week.

Women are taught basically from birth that we should be ashamed of our body size, and the fashion industry plays into this in many ways, like parading around anorexic models. And "vanity sizing," (i.e. size "XS" clothes that are actually more like a "M," which explains why you have no idea what size you actually are). According to the Women’s Equality Party, one in five women in the UK cut the size out of their clothes. And 70% of those who do say it's because of "shame and embarrassment at their size.”
