fierce plus-sized women flooded Club Freeze, a trendy New York lounge, to support one thing…
The brand spankin’ new “dare to wear clubwear” line was created especially for curvy girls by Bad Girls Club godmother Tanisha Thomas and her good friend Bella, founder of PrimBeauty.
And let me tell you, the journey to success for the Bad Girls Club, Celebrity Fit Club, Love Games, Tanisha Gets Married — breathes — and Marriage Boot Camp star was no piece of cake! But giving up wasn’t an option. “When life throws you lemons, throw it back and demand chocolate!” Thomas said.
After some blood, sweat, and tears, edgy cut-out dresses and body cons weren’t the only fruits of their labor. Born out of a clothing line was an inspiring campaign that encourages women to embrace their luscious, ample figures.
“It turned into a big movement on social media — it’s huge!,” Thomas told MadameNoire. So huge, Bella says, that even Plush’s curvaceous model ambassadors are getting recognized by random passersby. The message behind the movement? “Be bold, be you!” Thomas said.
The reality TV star spoke with us to give us the scoop on Plush, a possible, might-be-happening, not-so-sure-yet Orange Is the New Black role, and her upcoming projects.
