Saucye West’s #FightForInclusivity Movement Is Inspiring Change In The Plus Size Industry

For those who may be unfamiliar, Saucye West, a plus size model and fat activist, grew tired of brands catering to small fats (plus size people on the smaller end of the size spectrum).

Her call to action? Hold brands accountable and boycott brands that don’t go higher than a 3x.

She wanted a way to challenge brands, as well as the plus size community at large to demand more inclusive sizing for those on the larger end of plus.

"There have been a couple of brands that I’ve been in direct contact with that I personally want to be working with, but I can’t really talk about a lot right now. Nothing’s solidified yet."

How have brands reacted to this boycott so far? Are you getting any feedback, positive or negative?

"People are using their voices. So the conversation is on the table – whether they want to see it or not."

Well, it can be overwhelming, But this is a labor of love for me. I feel like it is what I was meant to do, it’s my passion.

How are you handling becoming the leader of this movement and dealing with the scrutiny and criticism that brings?
