Plus Size Model Gets Fat-Shamed For Her Photo In Active Wear, Then This Brand Steps In



It seems like no matter how hard they try, plus-size women still face heartbreaking amounts of adversity when trying to break into the world of fitness. One activewear brand just hired a model who wants to change that. And they’re even getting involved in the fight themselves.

Academy Sports and Outdoors has chosen plus-size Instagram fashion model Anna O’Brien as the new face of their ‘BCG’ line, which runs up to size 3X for women.

The New York-based O’Brien has struggled with maintaining a fitness regime herself over the years. And blames some of the anxiety she felt towards working out with a lack of available and affordable wear in her size.

Though O’Brien rocked a sporty photo shoot that has now attracted more than 13 thousand likes, not everyone watching had something nice to say.

O’Brien has proven herself in the past to be more than capable of putting Internet trolls in their place. But Academy issued a commendable response of their own when they noticed a particularly nasty comment under one of her photos. It’s an encouraging step in the right direction towards acceptance of all bodies that strive to be fit.
