Plus models continue to make their presence known in the fashion world, whether it’s gracing magazine covers, being interviewed by major magazines or launching their own collections. It’s great to see that curvy bodies are being more accepted on the mainstream fashion scene so whenever a plus size model scores a magazine cover or any other kind of worthy achievement, it’s not just a score for that model but for plus size women everywhere.
Brazilian plus model Fluvia Lacerda recently sat down for an interview with Glamour Magazine (Brazil). It was a great interview where she candidly spoke to the magazine about body image and how she has always felt beautiful in her own skin. Considered the “plus size Gisele Bündchen” in the fashion industry, Fluvia told Glamour Brazil that she is “pretty much immune to others negativity” and doesn’t waste time regretting that she does not fit the standards imposed on her by society. She also talks about her views on size diversity in the industry and what she thinks of plus size fashion.
