It’s that time of the year where we all make our new year resolutions and plans, most all of them if not all, involve weight loss or a heathier eating lifestyle.
While that might not be a bad thing, we know that overdoing it and starving yourself just to be a skinny guy or girl might not be healthy and sustainable.
Lucky for us we have seen quite a number of bloggers and models embracing their curvaceous bodies and still being healthy. The recent rise in women who are embracing curves has been growing over the years and more women are posting pictures of themselves without the fear of body shaming.
Here are some of the most celebrated ladies, who are advocates of plus size models with healthy lifestyles who are not only popular on social media but have become brand ambassadors of many celebrated brands.
The modelling industry has definitely become more inclusive when it comes to representing women’s bodies, we have been spotting all sizes in the market.
Take a look at some of Mzansi’s most beloved curvy girls. You should keep an eye on them right now for your daily dose of fashion, body positivity and creative inspiration:
Fashion blogger and model, Yoliswa Mqoco is notorious for showing off her signature bold accessories, and combinations of prints, textures and colours. The most beautiful accessory she wears is her confidence.
If you follow Thickleyonce (Lesego Legobane) on Instagram, you know that she embraces her cellulite and stretch marks. Which is probably why women can not help but fall in love with her, for her authenticity.
When Marciel Hopkins entered Miss SA in March 15 she said she knew she’d have to make many sacrifices which included a 14 kg weight loss. After the pageant she gained back a few kilos- but her confidence was what made her a sought after plus model.
“You are good enough to live life just as you are. Not smaller, not prettier, not sexier – regardless of health or identity, whether people understand your or not. You are GOOD enough.” – @nourishandeat inspiration! DON’T be fooled by the nonsense of the New Year diet culture storm!
