Plus-size model Denise Bidot has a new project called There Is No Wrong Way to Be a Woman. Bidot is using her fame to promote her message and to “encourage women of all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes to love themselves without apology.” This is the kind of positive, body acceptance message that the world cannot get enough of.
Speaking of her new project, Bidot says, “The slogan I created years ago has grown into a movement and like any movement it needs a home, not only will women from all over the world have a safe place free of criticism on thereisnowrongwaytobeawoman.com, but they’ll also have the opportunity to purchase merchandise bearing the powerful statement and show how they’ve embraced their own unique beauty.”

Denise Bidot is unapologetic about her body and her curves. If you have heard her speak, she is open about her life experiences and passionate about spreading a positive message about embracing your naturally body.
Explaining her message, she said, “The strength of a woman is unparalleled and society’s definition of beauty often overshadows it . . . I want to show that not only are we strong, but our differences are exactly what makes us beautiful. After all, a rainbow would be pretty boring if it was just one color and size.”
She launched her project with a photoshoot that included a diverse group of women of different body types and ethnic backgrounds. They all wore their “There Is No Wrong Way to Be a Woman” T-shirts. The campaign featured un-edited photos. The message was to show the strength and beauty of women of different backgrounds. The mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and friends ranged from size 2 to size 22.
