NATIONAL PLUS SIZE APPRECIATION DAY | OCTOBER 6
On October 6, National Plus Size Appreciation Day recognizes the gorgeous men and women who may be larger but are also larger than life in so many ways. Extraordinary beauty comes in all size packages.
Stereotypes could fill this page to describe plus size men and women, but then we have to consider that more than half the U.S. population is plus-sized. That means big and tall, full-bodied and robust persons fill roles that require well-rounded and amply skilled people. With this talent pool comes buying power some retailers have yet to appreciate.
The celebration recognizes the talent and elegance of our plus-size population. When it comes to being bigger, taller or curvier, put your best self forward. Show your style, flair, and gorgeous self!
HOW TO OBSERVE PLUS SIZE APPRECIATION DAY
No matter our age, how we feel about our appearance affects our daily lives. Whether you are plus size or not, take account of the value you place on your outward appearance, contributions to others’ lives and relationships. On this day build confidence in someone you know. Celebrate accomplishments and appreciate one another.
Other ways to participate:
- Wear that new style. Clothes that fit and are stylish allow us to step out into the world with confidence.
- Retailers – Consider broadening your plus-size selection. Listen to your clientele and provide styles they ask for.
- Share your favorite look. Don’t be afraid to brag.
- While you’re all dressed up, go out on the town.
