Plus-Size Pride

Curves are embraced as fashion and design welcome sizes 8 and over

Implications - The idea of beauty in reference to weight is a widely discussed topic, especially in the digital age. This has led to not just the acceptance, but the glamorization of curves. In the past, plus-size women were subject to loose, "flattering" designs; now, women of all shapes are encouraged to show pride in their bodies. This is a pivotal turn towards equality in the media that satisfies the consumer desire for reality in branding.
