    So my fellow F/FAs, what plus size celebrities do you like?

    I mean I'm sure we've all got at least one, I'll start with mine, Nigella Lawson, Kirstie Allsopp, Jenny Ryan and Beth Ditto.

    You consider Nigella Lawson plus-size? Has she gained weight recently?

    The last time I saw her on TV she was pretty big. I think she puts a lot on her boobs though.

    I've always thought she's very attractive. I'm weak for brunettes, she cooks and speaks with a British accent. Perfect storm. I surrender :) However, I never considered Nigella to be plus-size. She isn't model thin. She's curvaceous but not as voluptuous as a Christina Hendricks. She doesn't need to buy plus-size clothes.

    She's definitely bigger than Christina, tbh I get that she's not the biggest woman, but based on UK TV average dress sizes she comes across as bigger than she is.

    Anyway, enough arguing about whether Nigella is or is not plus size, who do you all like?

    I'm very partial to Tess Holliday. My wife showed me a picture of her eating a corn dog. I never aspired to be a corn dog but in that moment if could've been anything I know what I would have picked!

    I don't really follow real-world celebrities anymore. It got too hard, because almost every time I would see a woman who actually looked great (by my estimation) on TV, she'd turn out to be either wearing a fat suit, or would lose weight within months. Real people; especially celebrities, will put their careers before me, and they should. There's no reason for them to stay fat if it's not what they want to be. It just means I can't rely on them as an inspiration anymore.

    Sadly, even in other well-known forms of media, female characters usually won't be fat, or won't stay fat for more than one episode, but I've developed a bit of a liking for Inko Midoriya, from My Hero Academia. I think she's very cute, after the first episode. There are also isolated photographs that I've found online; usually just normal stuff, where someone will be casually looking into a camera with a friendly smile, and it'll really hit me in the heart. I've got one, right now, of a girl leaning across from what looks like the passenger's side seat of a minivan, with her much-thinner friend only halfway in the picture, and yes, the girl is big, but it's more than that. Her whole look and expression just called out to me, and I've been referring to that picture for writing inspiration since then.

    Really? Doesn't seem very likely to me.

    If you look at other media appearances of her - or red carpet events - she's just the same size and shape as in "This is Us".

    I remember seeing her for the first time as a bbw contestant on a mock Bachelor like reality show on a show called "Huge". When I saw her on "This Is Us", I got curious and Googled her interview videos on YouTube. She said she used one to play the circus fat lady. Apparently even the actor playing her bhm love interest isn't as big in real life and is wearing a fat suit on "This Is Us" too.

    You are correct that Chrissy Metz's love interest on "This is Us" - Toby played by Chris Sullivan - wears a fat suit for his role.

    But as far as Chrissy Metz goes, I think you're imagining something.

    These are reports from some recent real-life events she attended:

    Why should she wear a fat suit to an event where she is invited as a person, not as a fictional character??? :confused::rolleyes:

    Tess had a great shot at being a plus size/size acceptance icon. Unfortunately she has made some mistakes that have removed her from that chance. From not sending out paid for "eff your beauty standards" t-shirts which cost $40 and not actually giving to charity or eventually barely giving to charity, to racist comments.

    I think I'm wrong about her wearing the fat suit on This Is Us. Last I heard, her character is supposed to actually lose weight in the next season.

    I think I heard in real life she just had bariatric surgery. I might be wrong, I never watched the show.

    She's the main reason I watch the show. I would watch any drama with a near ssbbw in it.

    Whitney Thore gave a great TED Talk on size acceptance, which is how I originally heard of her. She seemed very professional. I haven't seen My Big Fat Fabulous Life, but have heard it shows her life as more of a train wreck, which is sad. I do love her positivity on social media.

    The one thing about most real life fat celebrities, which makes me not even want to think about them, is that more than half the time, if you try to google their names, the first thing that comes up is some story containing the words "weight loss," and reading those words is just not my idea of fun. That's been the case with Chrissy Metz, though I like most of the pictures of her that I've seen. She's very pretty in those pictures, though I honestly know nothing about what's happened with her more recently, and I don't think I want to know.

    I hope none of you take this the wrong way, but what I need from others right now is inspiration, and it's not fair of me to ask a real person to make that kind of sacrifice if they don't want to. That's why I don't follow celebrities.
