The Woman Behind the #visiblyplussize Hashtag Talks Fashion and Representation

Hashtags are a ubiquitous and often effective way of mobilizing people or calling attention to an issue. In the case of Alex La Rosa, she’s managed to do both with her #visiblyplussize hashtag which she was inspired to create after realizing the lack of representation of women with curves in fashion.

“Normalizing plus size bodies in the media and on the internet” is the concept behind #visiblyplussize and the hashtag’s 8k plus followers get regular content reflective of the majority of women’s bodies.

La Rosa has been leading the charge of this aspect of the body positive movement while her modeling and blogging career have been skyrocketing alongside.

Here, the recently engaged La Rosa shares why she started #viviblyplussize and why representation and diversity in fashion matters.
