Miss Plus Size International


Miss Plus size Beijing is a brain child of Dr Samantha Sibanda a Zimbabwean currently based here in Beijing. It is a competition where plus size women and their admirers can come together to celebrate the beauty of size in a non judgmental environment and show that some of us do actually appreciate our curves!

Most importantly, we show that we are comfortable in our own skin and not intimidated by the continuous pressure from the media to fit into a certain size label to be deemed acceptable in society. We proudly recognise that a great many plus size women do hold down high powered jobs and lead perfectly normal and happy lives. Not everyone wants to be a size zero and we are here to prove that there is life being a plus size.

Larger women are often rejected by other beauty pageants and we are here to change the perception of the world; which is that you can only be beautiful if you are slim. We need to let the world know that it is possible to be plus size, intelligent, and beautiful.

We at Miss Plus Size International do not encourage or promote obesity, we purely provide a platform for the plus size women of the world to showcase their beauty on the catwalk that has previously been reserved for our slimmer sisters!
