“I recently posted a picture of a pizza and a girl commented, ‘You should go to the gym’. Now I’m immune to such comments. It doesn’t make me feel ugly, in fact it’s pushed me to a stage where I appreciate myself more.”

Tinka Bhatia, hospitality consultant.

“I don’t restrict myself to trends either. I love wearing short stuff because I like how my legs look or a low-neck to highlight my décolletage.”

Srishti Kumar, stylist and fashion consultant.

“I don’t dress for shock value, but I enjoy dressing in clothes that aren’t conventionally meant for my body type. I love my body and I won’t change it to fit what’s available in stores.”

Zahra Khan, digital entrepreneur.

“Why aren’t we defined by what we do? You won’t define a business magnate like Mukesh Ambani as short and fat. I don’t see curvy men having a movement.”

Kritika Gill, make-up artist.

“My mom used to buy me clothes that covered my butt, but I never understood why I had to hide it. I like the way it looks — it’s well rounded.”

"Being plus-size myself, I was kind of in awe of the confidence of the girls we shot – zero awkwardness, just pure star quality. Made me realise that it's time I shed those baggy layers of clothes," says Nidhi Jacob, fashion editor at Elle and the genius stylist behind the shoot.
