A woman’s body shape, size, body type in general, is a very controversial topic. People will always discuss woman’s body shape and how they treat themselves.
Women of size have always been prejudiced, have experienced shame, fatphobia, even though, the fashion industry is trying to dispel these stereotypes. They are trying to include in the fashion catwalks different body shapes. There are a lot of singers like Lizzo and models like Ashley Graham, women of size, and they are not afraid to show themselves in their shape, and how beautiful and attractive they both are.
Also, Denise Mercedes, a Dominican plus-size model, has decided to dispel these stereotypes by doing a TikTok challenge called “Style, not size”. The model and her friend, Maria Catellanos have decided to put on the same outfit to show the world that you don’t have to have a perfect body to have style and to follow the trends.
Their videos are so followed and have a lot of views, encouraging girls and women out there.
