TLC’s New Plus-Size Fashion Reality Show, “Big Sexy”

From designing clothing to booking modeling gigs, BIG SEXY will follow 5 curvy ladies, New Yorkers Leslie, Tiffany, Audrey, Nikki and Heather, as they take over Manhattan to make plus-size sexiness more mainstream. Big Sexy, will be a special three-part series on breaking into the plus-size fashion industry. Weight bias is notoriously rampant in their chosen industries, and it is their mission to prove that a bigger girl – the girl that most Americans can relate to — can break the mold and change the fashion and cultural norms that have restricted and rejected them for so long. The stars hope to expand and revise this commonly-accepted idea of what is beautiful and sexy – giving viewers a candid look into their lives as confident plus-size women who are shooting for the stars with their careers. Each episode will feature the women as they attend major industry events, parties and opportunities, all while giving a candid peek into the balancing of their personal, dating and family relationships as plus-size women. They are big, they are beautiful, and they are not sitting at home waiting for life to happen. They know better than anyone that real women can be sexy with curves — no matter what society says. 

I’m happy to say that I know a few of the cast members from either working with them directly or meeting them personally at plus-size events. Here are some pics of the “BIG SEXY” cast members from previous photoshoots, magazine spreads and ad campaigns. Congrats to all of the ladies. You can count on me as a fan already!!!:
