A Brave Teen in Faviana
The teen above, Kristen Layne, is an inspiration to us all. She recently
posted a photo hoping to sell her junior prom dress. She wanted to buy a
new gown from Faviana for senior year. Instantly she was cyber-bullied
with a barrage of hateful comments. “God did not put me on this earth to
please you. Sorry I am not more pleasing to your eye,” she told them. She
stood strong as others jumped to her defense. “Don’t let anyone break you
down,” Kristen said.
Her community raised money to buy her new gown and much more. She
felt overwhelmed with support and a sense of strength and confidence.
She told Cosmo magazine that she hopes her experience enables other girls
to stand up for themselves in the face of bullying and realize how much
they’re worth. NewYorkDress is on board with body-positivity. Every girl
has the right to feel fabulous. Here are a few of our current plus prom
dresses that have caught our eye.
