Ebony magazine is putting big women on the spotlight!.
In response to all the constant body shaming of women who have got curves. Ebony has dedicated a full cover to chunky, BWW curvy, plus-size, big, ample, full-figured, women. Which is just amazing because everyone is beautiful in their own unique way.
The march issue features big model, Tomika Anderson, Grammy winner Chrisette Michele, R&B chart topper Jazmine Sullivan, Orange Is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks, and plus-size blogger and swimwear designer Gabi Fresh.
