I just was reading online about a precious young girl who was bullied over being plus sized. It tugged at my heart because I am all too familiar with what she's going through. There's a line in the Meghan Trainor song, "All About That Bass" that goes, "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top." I love those words because they really resonated with me. Don't get me wrong, I know that people are bullied over being small as well. I just happen to more closely relate to the plus sized. Bullying of any kind really has no place in my life.

For women with plus sizes, it becomes a little difficult to find couture that is fashionable and at the same time looks good on them.
