Being it is a new year, I would like to see the plus size community to change society’s perception of beauty and break down tired old stereotypes! Being bigger, doesn’t mean that we can’t be athletic, agile, creative, dynamic, or beautiful. It seem’s like people are starting to get the point. BUT…there is still more progress needed.
So, when you have women like Tess Holliday speaking up, Ashley Graham making news week after week, and other plus size women around the world furthering this point we can change the world’s perception of beauty that much faster. For me, it is such an honor to be report and share the news you need to know in the plus size community!
So, without further ado!
