Full sized?

I'm a size 4 and a full c-cup sometimes d depending on what time of month it is....there is nothing not full-sized about me.

"Full-sized" just sounds like a way to put down women of regular weight....cognitive dissonance.

With all the women in the first video being significantly different shapes and sizes, I bet fittings were a pain in the ask. It can be hard enough fitting straight sized models and with them you don't usually have to worry about major differences in breast, hip, thigh, and stomach size.

These vid's were gross, and only promotes UN-healthy obesity which is a serious health issue in the USA. they are far from Role Models as someone mentioned. A role model is someone who is in great health that is not under or over weight. I am sure if you had a doctor behind the scenes you find out how many of these over weight women have dangerous health problems. NOT FASHIONABLE AT ALL!

What does health have to do with having access to cute/fashionable clothing? You want people who are so-called "unhealthy" to sit around naked all day at home because they aren't a "socially acceptable" size?

Nonsense logic.

Those Savannah Red clothes were kinda lame.

I like ASOS Curve, Anna Scholz, and Simply Be a lot better.

I watched a couple, yes they are big girls but they looked good to me vs how i see bigger girls normally. So tired of society fat shaming females.

I'm 6'1 and at my heaviest I was 237 lbs (oddly, I never got above a size 15). I have regular blood tests, MRIs, Dexa scans and xrays done because of a genetic disorder I have and I was ALWAYS well within the healthy range for everything. Even at that weight I could still run a mile under 7 minutes which was far faster than most of my 'fit' friends.

Just because someone is overweight doesn't mean they're not healthy.
