Extraordinary beauty comes in all sizes. I don’t know about the extraordinary beauty part on my part :), but I didn’t want to use someone else’s picture, so I used mine. Today recognizes National Plus Size for the gorgeous men and women who may be larger but are also larger than life in so many ways! National Plus Size Appreciation Day recognizes the talent and elegance of our plus size population. When it comes to being bigger, taller or curvier, we need to put out best self forward. Show your style, flair and gorgeous self!
We are put into many stereotypes that I could fill this page to describe plus size men and women. However, more than half the U.S. population is plus sized. Not a good thing health-wise, but we are who we are until we change it. We have big and tall, full-bodied and robust persons, who still fill roles that require them to be well-rounded and amply skilled people. Along with their talent pool comes buying power some retailers just don’t appreciate.
Women Rock, Inc. founded National Plus Size Appreciation Day in 2016. It’s am is to boost the confidence for the many women and men around the world who are plus size. Women Rock INC is on a mission of self-love despite the stigma society has placed on how we are supposed to look. The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Plus Size Appreciation Day to be observed annually beginning in 2017.
No matter our age, we should observe how our appearance affects our daily lives. Whether you are plus size or not, take account of the value you place on your outward appearance, contributions to others lives and relationships. Build your confidence into someone you would like to know. Celebrate your accomplishments and appreciate yourself and one another. Use #PlusSizeAppreciationDay to share on social media.
