Jessica Simpson Looks Back at "Cruel" Comments About Her Weight

In a chapter called “Death by Mom Jeans,” the fashion designer looked back at the body shaming. “I had always been in on the joke, and that gave me power,” she wrote, per the magazine. “Now that it was everybody else making it, I didn’t think it was funny.”

After a while “a dysmorphia set in,” she wrote, and she “no longer trusted the mirror.” 

“With every reflection, every single pane of glass I passed,” she continued, per the publication, “I took myself in quickly to try to catch myself, to see what the world apparently saw.”
