Kylie Jenner's Model BFF Jordyn Woods Wants Us To Stop Using 'Plus-Size'
As the body positive movement continues to grow, there has been an increasing amount of controversy surrounding the term "plus-size."
Last year, a bunch of Australian models, including the famous Stefania Ferrario, teamed up to launch the "drop the plus" campaign. This initiative is aimed at dropping the hurtful "plus-size" classification often given to curvy models.
Well, it turns out those Aussie gals aren't the only ones backing the body positive movement and speaking out against the use of this label.
Kylie Jenner's gorgeous BFF Jordyn Woods is also chiming in on this controversial classification.
In a recent interview with The Cut, Woods revealed that although she never thought she would end up becoming a model, she "saw it as a good opportunity to start giving back to people and helping influence other girls to be more confident."
Now, this rising Wilhelmina Curve star is not only making a name for herself as an Insta-famous model, but she is also earning quite the reputation for being a role model. She's encouraging girls to celebrate their curves by telling the industry it needs to stop using the term "plus-size."
Woods told The Cut,
Well, I believe that once you're past a size 8, you're considered plus-size. Everyone has different body shapes, heights. It's unfortunate because sometimes a curvy girl will say, 'I'm a model,' and people will look at her sideways. Then she'll have to say, 'I'm a plus-size model.' That's just society, you know? Hopefully, if we stop using the term plus-size we can just create a broader definition for what a model is.
If you ask me, Jordyn Woods proves that beauty is much more than skin deep, and we could all learn something about loving ourselves from this inspiring gal.
