PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE April 2015 Bridal Issue - Page 108

I still couldn’t bring myself to send them underwear Polaroid’s. My own insecurities made me miss out on that amazing opportunity and it’s just not something I’m ever going to let happen again! It took time and lots of deep breathing to just throw myself in at the deep-end months later, and ironically I hadn’t lost any weight. In fact, I’d put on a few pounds when I got signed! Whom do you look to for curvy inspiration? Definitely Beyoncé and for so many reasons! Her body, her fitness, her style, her bum, her curves and obviously her unapologetic fierceness! I also love Tara Lynn. Her career journey is massively inspiring to me because she’s really broken into the high-fashion and editorial side of things, which for curve/ plus models is hard. What is the plus industry like in your hometown? Lily Cummings Photography
