The Learning Curve
Six body-positivity crusaders echo one common thought: self-love is paramount. They speak to Cosmo about what the term ‘plus-size’ means to them, and why this movement needs further momentum to break stereotypes and promote inclusivity.
Zunaili Malik, Meghna Sharma

NEHA PARULKAR MODEL AND INFLUENCER

“Most of the time, people think that being body positive is being ‘shameless’, or a ‘rebel’, or it’s just an excuse to continue being overweight. But for me, it is really about loving yourself with dignity, and not victimising yourself for being the way you are. Having said that, the movement has evolved a great deal since its inception. Earlier, being ‘fat’ was your only identity; nobody cared to look beyond your ‘size’. But today, many people (not all) do understand the concept of body positivity. Being curvy is no longer something to be embarrassed about, it’s a badge women wear with pride...further inspiring others, who still feel insecure about their bodies.”
