I could not agree more with this. It's so true, plus-size models are bringing health and wellness back, helping to eradicate the need for girls to starve themselves, and they are such valuable and amazing role models to the younger generation who will hopefully grow up into women who firmly stand against the waif-thin craze. Plus-size models are definitely not just models, they embody strength, beauty, health and the chance to bring back timeless, classic full-figured bodies.

Happy Anniversary!
