Have You Watched Canada’s Plus Size TV Show The Succulent Six?

Looking for more plus size representation in media? Well look no further! Canada’s new plus size tv show, The Succulent Six, features an all plus size cast of “superSHEros” to combat negative stereotypes and championing self love & body positivity.

If you’re answer is “No”, you’re missing out on life. That may be a little extreme but I need for you to understand!!!

So what is The SUCCULENT SIX, right?

From their Facebook Page:

The SUCCULENT SIX question the idea of one “right” body shape. They celebrate beauty at ANY size. They aim to help end weight discrimination, size bias and fat phobia. Most of all they champion a day free from diets and obsessions about body weight. “If we can start with one day free from body policing maybe, just maybe, we can secure the other 364.”

How did they form?

Our team of “pseudo-superSHEroes” was formed on International No Diet Day 2016. We were united on a mission of body acceptance. We push out of our comfort zones and accept self-love. You’re invited to come along with us as we partner with a special guest ”Succulent Sixth”.

Taken from their Website

Here are the five beautiful women that make up 5 of the SUCCULENT SIX:

Ivory

THE SUCCULENT SIX and Toronto Photographer ROBERT SKUJA are pleased to pay tribute to the goddess within with their latest photographic instalment, SPRING AWAKENING in solidarity with the change of the seasons, and International Women’s Day. This photo series depicts each member of the SUCCULENT SIX embracing their inner goddess. Our bodies, along with the beautiful flowers of Springtime are on an ever-transitioning journey, destined to be different with each passing day. Rather than looking forward to an evolved version of self, we are dedicating this shoot to the beautiful Goddesses that already reside within each of us, and we urge you to do the same. Be gentle with yourself, embrace the perfect version of self that already exists, and allow yourself to blossom naturally alongside the awakening flowers of Spring.

Ivory is the brains behind the show. She’s an amazing, vivacious, beautiful, confident woman. And she knows how to work her assets. She’s an accomplished singer, dancer and model. Did I mention that she was beautiful?

Spring is officially in the air and just as the seasons transition, so do our bodies, minds, and souls…naturally. In time for the change of the seasons, Toronto’s very own team of curvy superSHEroes THE SUCCULENT SIX with the help of Toronto photographer ROBERT SKUJA present their latest photographic installment, SPRING AWAKENING. While societal pressures to “create the perfect summer body” shift into high gear, pushing us to be “more”, to be “better”, and change what we currently are, the Succulent Six are stepping away from the pressure to change and instead becoming rooted in embracing the moment – exactly where you’re at.

Belle is so cute and very into her own sense of style. When she’s not bringing a level-headedness to the crew, she’s a performer, producer, singer, emcee, and teacher. Basically a Jane of all trades!
