This lifestyle guide celebrates a new awareness: being proud of your curves and accepting your body as it is. Curvy women from widely ranging backgrounds talk about their plus-size life and everything that is important to them – from music and fashion to self-acceptance and body positivity. In addition, experts share socio-cultural insights, for example into changing body images and ideals of beauty. Hiding your curves and dieting belong to the past and have been replaced by joie de vivre independent of your clothing size!
