Chrissy Metz gets real about being a plus-size actress.
I've been modelling a little over a decade now and working in Education. I've constantly felt the need to investigate Body Image because I know how much it affects young men and women and I also know...
These brands are more inclusive in their size ranges.
Proving women of any size can be high-fashion models, too.
Body positive campaigns are essential for progression within the fashion community and media. Why? Because they remind us to love our bodies. They remind us the "perfect body" is a hoax. Having been exposed to the harsh realities of the media and modelling from a young age, I think it is imperative to influence teenagers/women/men to love their bodies as they are without changing them.

"Our idea of what is curvy is, like, so bizarre."
Curves On A Budget
I am learning to love myself, but sometimes it's not enough. All the love I can give myself can't cancel out the hate that people have for fat bodies. If we want to be real about changing the way that beauty is portrayed and what bodies are considered good, then everyone has to do the heavy lifting to normalize marginalized bodies together.
"Embracing all of our bumps and curves is a beautiful thing."
"When there's young girls that are searching the term plus-size, that's the identifier to find someone that looks like them, to feel like they belong, to feel like they fit in and that they're not alone."
No, no, the other F-word.
"Brawn has a body positive message. Brawn is physical strength."
