Body positivity isn’t about wearing certain types of clothes but feeling comfortable in one’s skin
A couple of years back, Twinkle decided to rise above stereotypes, and start following her passion. In a few months, Twinkle Shikha Gupta became an influencer, a body positivity personality, and a plus-size model on Instagram. She is also a certified fashion stylist. To know more about her life, CitySpidey had a live session where we talked about her life and journey as a plus-size model.
Says Twinkle, “I have been a little overweight from my very childhood. A lot of problems I faced while growing up stemmed from this.” Twinkle had a love for makeup. While all the other kids used to play Doctor Doctor or other games, she used to play makeup games. But she never really found the courage to do anything about it because of the feeling of worthlessness that society had imbibed on her. Even as a kid, she faced a lot of body shaming.
From the beginning, Twinkle faced a lot of backlash because of her weight even when she used to go out with her family. In society, she kept hearing things like who would marry you. Twinkle felt that just because of her weight, her talents and qualifications were ignored.
