Plus, two reader comments:
Yulia of Michelle Zauner’s beauty uniform says: “I remember reading Michelle Zauner’s essay ‘Crying in H Mart’ in the New Yorker in August 2018 and loving it so much that I printed it out. I still read it regularly. When I moved years ago, I always went to Eastern European grocery stores when I missed my family. I rummaged in the aisles with pickled vegetables and tisanes and idly listened to the women talking about nothing in particular, the way Russians and Ukrainians do. It would feel like being in a room full of aunts. “
Says K of the peace with my quarantined body, “I felt an overwhelming amount of grief over my weight gain, as if I had lost ‘the real me’. I got married at my lowest weight since high school this summer and I felt so confident back then. But as my friend’s mother would say, I got fat and happy very quickly in my marriage. But then my cute friend’s mother said to me, “Honey, I think you’ve been stressed all your life. You have finally relaxed and let your body be. Buy new clothes and feel beautiful. Because you are loved ‘It was the nicest thing. And i will do it. Thank you Kim for inspiring me to start with a bikini. “
