miss-british-beauty-curve

A relatively new beauty pageant in the UK, ‘Miss British Beauty Curve’ is all about promoting diversity in body image, and challenging the notion that a beauty queen can only be a size zero.

Before we go any further, this is not a rant against naturally thin women, because we understand that skinny-shaming is just as bad as fat-shaming. Some women are naturally thin no matter how much they eat…
