The Curvy Rebel's style is glamorous with a slight edge.
Who is your style crush?
Nadia Aboulhosn is a plus size model/ blogger/ and designer… I’ve been following her forever, I just love her attitude towards life in general… But she kills it daily when it comes to style. It’s because of her, that I am addicted to body suits.
In your opinion, what do you think is the most common misconception about plus size women?
Definitely that a plus size woman can’t be happy and content with her body. I personally feel that bigger women are portrayed in the media as self-conscious or always trying to lose weight… like the thinner you are, the happier you’ll be. I do what I do because I want women to see that I am confident, I am sexy, I am happy, and I am healthy at a size 16/18… and it’s totally ok for you to be too.
What advice do you have for girls struggling with self-image issues?
When I was younger I was very self-conscious. I was different than all of the other girls and if I opened a magazine or turned on the TV there wasn’t anyone that looked like me. Eventually when I was around the age of 20, I made the personal decision to stop hating myself and my body. It was then when I started my journey of self-love.
My advice to other women is to really take the time to learn who you are on the inside. Then take the time to learn who you are on the outside. Then love them both unconditionally…
