‘I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too.’
‘Being you is what defines real beauty.’
“The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me!’
‘It doesn’t matter what shape you have or the size you wear, whether you’re skinny or curvy, tall or short. The important thing is to be happy, to feel comfortable in your own skin and love our bodies like thin.’
‘I can never figure out where I fit in, and I’m always making someone mad. I’m not skinny-skinny, but I’m not fat and fabulous either. I’m a size 10’
‘But the plus industry has given me so many opportunities that I don’t ever shame it. Some people think it’s offensive to be called plus-size; other people don’t. I don’t care – you can label me what you want.’

They are happy to see someone they can identify with.’
