The Regal Fatty | Curvy Confessions

Who are you?

Queen Charisma, Tampa, FL, 26, Blogger/ Stylist/ Digital Influencer

How did you become comfortable with your body?

There was no actual moment for me. I learned through different trials and tribulations over the span of my adolescence. 

Did you have a difficult journey to accepting your body? 

Yes. That is why I never have the answer when people ask “how to become confident”. It’s a personal, intimate, and everlasting journey. It can’t be taught. And each time you THINK the lesson is complete … you learn something new (about yourself). 

Why did you decide to become a stylist?

I focus more on styling myself and showcasing it via However, I style other plush bodies. I decided to do so after being continuously pressured, lol. 

What are your views on the latest inclusion of plus-size women in fashion? 

I think it’s all quite overhyped and we still have a long way to go. We’re being INCLUDED, sure. But go in a store that offers plus-sizes & standard sizes and tell me what you see. I see the 9 HOMELY items actually offered in extended sizes pushed into a corner of the store. “Better options are online”. 

Have you faced any difficulties being a curve/ plus-size advocate?

Many. As a blogger, strangers love to push their opinions on me by any means. As an influencer, there are “favorites” in this field and a particular type of “fat body” is preferred. But the difficulties are what they are. I carry on. 

Have you ever felt pressured to change your body in any way?

Always have, always will. Way back when I was a chubby school girl, still when I was “thick” with no stomach or love handles, & especially now being a size 18-20. You’ll never be enough to people who don’t think you’re enough. Satisfy yourself. 

Your favourite body part and why?

I don’t really have a favorite part. But I love my oversized figure 8 (shape).

What advice could you give a young girl/woman who may be struggling with her body image?
If you don’t like something about your physical … change it. But make sure that it’s the physical that is actually the problem. 

How do you celebrate your body?

By doing & wearing precisely what I want at all times. 

Describe your body in 3 words.
