The New York Times published an article Thursday on “The Perfect Workout for Your Wedding Dress Silhouette,” including diet advice and a caution to avoid getting muscles that are “too wide.”
The Times later changed the headline and removed some sections of the article, noting that it had been “slightly condensed since publication.”
Fitness and psychology professionals told INSIDER even the updated article promotes toxic cultural norms surrounding women’s bodies, particularly for brides-to-be.
While health experts encourage people to eat well and move in ways that feel good to them, adopting healthy habits for a single day often means those habits aren’t sustainable.   
Choose wedding day apparel that feels good on your body rather than attempting to shape your body to feel good in a dress.
