Ty Alexander

There has never been a moment in my life where I wasn’t plus size. In fact, I was plus size before the world introduced us to the term plus size. As a relatively tall teenager (I’ve been 5’8 since I was 9) I grew up ashamed of my curves. Partly because I had to shop at the same places my mother did. I have to give myself credit though. Somehow I figured out how to dress up those mom jeans. I even learned a cute way to tie up my plaid shirts so that it would fit tight around my wide waist—just like my skinnier friends. But I never wanted to show off too much of my body.

Luckily, the 90’s came and went in the most dramatic way and I finally learned to celebrate my curves. But when I look back, I’m amazed at how far we’ve come. It’s no longer about the right body shape. I mean we are out here in way too cute crop tops and ultra sexy bodycons. We’ve reclaimed our bodies from the lonely corner of society’s throwaways and declared war on our enemies (read: anyone who doesn’t support our body positive movement).
