The Nigerian plus size website that is aiding broader narratives on beauty

In a recent photo shoot, the great minds behind Best of Plus Size -a website founded for the celebration of plus size women- reaffirmed that the idea to demystify being plus size, imminent from her inception has remained unchanged.

The shoot tagged “The African Pride” featured stunning plus size models, was styled by BOP collections, and was photographed by Lexis Photography.

We are particularly impressed by the conscious effort at watering down widely held misconceptions.

In a blog post explaining the shoot, they wrote; life will be better off if we do away with some harmful stereotypes and plus size fallacies in Africa and the world by extension.

On a similar note, Top American Model, Tyra Banks once said; Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.
The website also features Lifestyle Columns, Health and Fitness tips, Fashion among others.
See more photos from the shoot below.
