Real Plus Size Woman Proudly Wears Bikini & NYU Student Speaks Out

Stella Boonshoft’s bikini-clad portrait is a timely reminder that the vast majority of bodies on display in magazines, on television and in films look nothing like most of us.

After posting photos of herself in a black bikini on her Tumblr blog – The Body Love Blog, a plus-size NYU student Stella has become an online hero to many and it’s because she has no problems discussing self-image, her body and her battling weight and self-esteem issues.

“I think people are cruel because they are uncomfortable seeing an image of people who are not thin,” Stella said in an interview on the “Today” show. “I found that after years of struggling with my body image that really there was no way to justify the bullying as a child and as a teen.”

“THIS IS MY BODY, DEAL WITH IT” Stella Boonshoft in her own words.
