Stephanie, from Texas, USA, spoke with Huffington Post: "I remember being in junior high and looking at myself in the mirror, wondering why my stomach wasn’t the way it was ‘supposed’ to be. "Over the years, I’ve come to accept that I am always going to be considered plus-size. I push myself out of my comfort zone by wearing clothes that I love but aren’t in society’s mold of what is acceptable for bigger women, like crop tops, tight shirts, shorter dresses and shorts. I walk around with my head high, smiling, and show no shame in myself. I honestly have never felt more attractive." "I was shocked," she said. "I look so in love and confident. "Every person should be able to see themselves in that light. It is really eye-opening." The photographs were posted on Facebook and have been shared over 85,000 times.
