You can find her various writings on the subject on her website, charlottebellafab.com. This champion of inclusive fashion has a YouTube, Instagram, her own website, and plenty to say in regards to fashion and beauty standards.
In fact, in a recent article on her site, Bianca describes her trip to a mall and the frustration that followed regarding the lack of choices for plus size ladies. In the article, titled Enough, The Plus Size Community Needs More From Retailers!, the plus size advocate had this to say:
“Why the lack of variety? Don’t you think we as plus sizes deserve a physical space to shop? It seems the response is ‘We don’t care’. That is exactly what your brand is saying when only has 2 racks of plus size clothing. The lack of compromise, attention, and equality in the plus size fashion industry is very disappointing. And I’m not going to accept it anymore.”
