There used to be a time when being “bigger” meant you weren’t seen in a bathing suit. Thankfully now with more retailers (especially ones based online) embracing plus size culture, it’s easier than ever to find flattering and comfortable plus sized swimsuits. There are whole fashion shows from Los Angeles and New York City, to Paris and London that are allowing women to show off their curves and be proud of them.
But this change didn’t happen overnight. There are advocates fighting for equality when it comes to the treatment of plus sized women (and men) all over the world, in every profession. When it comes to modeling however, the two women running out in front, and making sure that the world knows it’s okay for women with curves to be seen in bathing suits, are Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham. Once it became “okay” for a model to be plus sized, then it wasn’t any different to be plus sized in a bathing suit. Check out Ashley Graham’s blog to read her story, and to see all the ways in which she is embracing body positivity.
