Plus-size models are confidently taking over the fashion industry. One of the leaders of the movement, Ashley Graham, recently released unphotoshopped photos of her swimsuit line, and people like them.
Ashley is a fierce advocate for the plus-size movement. She always promotes being authentic to yourself and accepting the beauty at every size.
New face on the block
One of the recently discovered plus-size models is Vivian Eyo-Ephraim. She is also getting praise and admiration for her work.
The Asos model just entered the fashion scene, but people already can't get enough of her. Vivian refers to her success as an amazing experience and highlights the importance of representation of every size in the media.
It's been amazing. I see a lot of people that look like me say 'Oh I've seen someone that represents me, finally', things like that is really encouraging to see.
Vivian feels extremely comfortable in her new role and is inspired to continue being herself, for the benefit of everyone who looks up to her. Her next goal is to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated, just like her idol Ashley Graham.

Slow change in the world of modelling & fashion...& when it's there. Promote it. More models of more sizes...medium, small, unusual, plus, mini, round, pear, stick, no-hip, big-hip, wonky wild-hip, round bum, flat bum. Let's get more awesomeness like this !! https://t.co/J7o34GhXwi— erin bosenberg (@e_bosie) 7 мая 2018 г.

Why plus-size models are good for us
A recent study revealed that plus-size models benefit women's mental health. By seeing a positive representation and acceptance at every size, women feel better about themselves, which improves their social status and body satisfaction.
We're looking forward to seeing more body positivity from these gorgeous ladies.
