All Sizes Matter

A colorfully dressed, plus-sized African American woman is wearing stylish eyeglasses and jewelry.

Accept that beauty shows in all sizes.
Various shapes can take home the prizes.
Why disqualify the curvier frames?
They meet inclusion in pretty girl games.

So what — they register higher on scales?
When they disrobe, they still portray females.
Let thick competition increase the stakes.
For plump bodies’ plush and warmth, mankind aches.
