Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Looks like there will be a new reality show catered to the plus size community. TLC the network that produces odd yet interesting reality shows is adding a new show to their roster. Big Sexy is a reality show that focuses on the life of 5 plus size women who are trying to break in and make it in the the weight discriminating fashion industry. The show will follow the five New York women (Leslie, Tiffany, Audrey, Nikki and Heather) in their prospective job fields.
According to TLC the girls "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."
If you shop Redress then you will probably recognize Leslie who is one of the shop girls. I must say that this show sounds more dignified than VH1's Big Girls Club. Hopefully the show will be able to open up society's eyes to see that big girls have jobs, relationships, dress just as stylish as their skinny counterparts, and love who they are and what they look like.
My only personal beef with this show is the name. Big Sexy, really?!
Big Sexy premieres August 30th at 10 pm. It will be a 3 part series. For more info checkout www.tlc.com
