I also watch the show. It brought me back to my school days where I was made fun at because of my weight. I hope this show helps all the thin people understand how their words make other people feel about themselves. There is beauty in each of us; God doesn't make mistakes!

i did watch it. i loved it. I loved the fact that the one girl had some doubts about herself before the fashion show, but the one running it, talked her up and made her realize you are beautiful and just go out there and rock it. the only thing I didn't like is when they went to the bar and there were all those losers there trying to pick up "big girls". I'm a big girl and my husband isn't an ugly loser like them.

It's a reality show on the Learning Channel (10:00 pm Tuesdays) featuring 5 big girls (one is 6'3" and weighs 335 lbs. and another wears a 32DD bra!) trying to break into the fashion industry in New York City! The women are beautiful, talented and full of self esteem. It's like this is who they are and they are not apologizing for not being what society dictates as the right weight and size for a woman. They are big, healthy and living out their dreams and planning a plus-size runway fashion show!! One of the sponsors of the show is Lane Bryant!
Tonight was the premiere. If anyone else saw it, what do you think?
