But this doesn't reflect my reality. I am confident; I am sexy; and
I am plus size. I wear what I want
, regardless of my size, and I don't hesitate to post sexy pictures on my Instagram
. However, combatting societal body negativity takes more than just individual self-love. Studies suggest
that seeing body diversity more often can actually make people more likely to consider larger bodies more aspirational and attractive. So I created a photo project to show New Yorkers how sexy plus-size women can be — by presenting them with steamy, intimate scenarios featuring one sexy plus-size woman: me. In the video above, I project the aforementioned photos on New York City buildings in major intersections and talk to the people on the street about what they think.
