Apparently, in an interview with Paper, Holiday touched on Ashley Graham's dislike of the term "Plus Size" and stated that she, Holiday, doesn't like to be referred to as Curvy.
No stranger to speaking her mind, the exact quote was:
"How can you build your career from taking money from plus-size women and then turn around and say the term's not good enough for you? I don't want to be called 'curvy sexy-licious,' that's ridiculous. It's insulting! We can't even be who we are. I get the whole 'not being into labels,' but it's for a plus-size woman being like "I'm plus-size, she's plus-size, I'm fat, she's fat." It's not a hate-term, it's how I describe my body."
Now, Hayward is weighing in on Daily Mail, "I am curvy and I like that word. I prefer it to plus-size personally for me because I feel it describes my body shape more." She goes on to explain the issues with the term Plus Size, mentioning that a plus model starts at a size 10 or 12, "And the average size woman in the UK is a size 16, that’s why a lot of models don’t like to use the term plus size because they are a size 12, they’re not really above average."
As this debate continues to heat up, let me know YOUR thoughts in the comments. What term do YOU prefer?
