Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, but sometimes we can struggle to realise this, especially on those days when we lack in self-confidence. That’s why we’ve compiled advice from some of the worlds most well-known plus size models so that you can start to feel yourself again.
Your body shape does not equate to how healthy you are
Many people don’t realise this, but the shape or size that we are doesn’t necessarily define how healthy we are. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that BMI (body mass index) is not an accurate way to determine a person’s health. Toccara Jones, an alum of the TV show America’s Next Top Model, is a plus-size model who has highlighted that plus-size doesn’t necessarily mean overweight, fat or unattractive. After the show, she went on to achieve a fourteen page spread in Vogue Italia, so if she isn’t proof that plus means beautiful, we don’t know what is.
