Read what Big Fig Collective has to say about Big Fig’s latest initiative:
“The large-scale community is filled with people who are seen as outsiders or afterthoughts – and we are tired of it,‘ said Alysse Dalessandro. “Big Fig understands the need to hand the microphone back to us – so we can educate other brands about the authentic full-size experience so we can all respect and celebrate it meaningfully. means. “
“Representation matters and although much progress has been made in the plus size area, there is still a lot of work to be done in other industries,“Miranda Schultz said. “Big Fig has created not only a product for our demographic but also a platform to help raise the voices of large-scale advocates. Other brands would do well to take note. “
“As a clinical psychologist, I know how important self-acceptance is to an individual’s well-being,“Dr Katelyn Baker said. “I have witnessed the size discrimination firsthand. Big Fig has been instrumental in creating a safe space for the large-scale community. ”
“Tall and muscular bodies also struggle to fit in ‘everyday’ products‘ said Oge Udeogu. “As a former professional footballer, I can tell you that one night of poor sleep leads to poor performance in a match. In joining the Collective, I look forward to helping Big Fig highlight that not all products are one-size-fits-all.”
“The plus-size community doesn’t trust brands that have historically tried to appease us temporarily – to get their wallets.,” said Zach Miko. “As a member of the Big Fig Collective, I am proud to be consulting for a company that celebrates great experience but understands that there is still more work to be done.“
“In Hollywood costumes, the roles, trailers and props aren’t built for larger bodies, so it’s easy to feel as if your body is ‘not right’.‘ said Daniel Franzese. “Larger people are conditioned to be ashamed of our size. Big Fig is a good example of how harmony can be accomplished and how we can all work together to move the needle.“
Brands will use the plus-size body for the allyship operation,Abi Warrell said. “Big Fig Collective isn’t a marketing tactic – it’s an advisory board guiding the company towards consistent authenticity and genuine allies.“
“As the founder of The Curvy Fashionista, I create content that embodies a deeper message of inclusion, awareness, and positive self-esteem.” Marie Leggette said. “Watching a brand actively build an operating platform to humanize and normalize the world at scale is incredible and I am honored to be part of their vision.“
We’re certainly excited to see more of what comes out of this empowering platform!
