Today on Fat Club we are chatting with Sheila Lopez on The Curvy Fashionista Cruise! Sheila is a plus size model and blogger with a love for the Tejana culture. We talk about the pressures and frustrations of being a plus size model along with cultural pressures to stay curvy but not “too curvy”. Sheila openly shares her hopes to find more inclusivity in modeling and media, so other young Latina girls have someone to look up to.
