Johannesburg – Blogger and photographer Lesego Legobane, known as Thick Leeyonce, is such an inspiration for us big girls; I’ve never met her, but I keep saying that I’m going to travel to South Africa someday just to buy clothes from her store. She has a store which sells clothes mainly for plus-size women, and these aren’t the basic bland plus-size clothes that we usually see in stores, these are sexy, fitting, gorgeous outfits that would bring out the confidence of any plus-size woman.
She’s been attacked, relentlessly, for her weight. her looks and her skin color but that has never affected her confidence about who she is and the way she looks. At just 25 years old, she’s gone through what many don’t experience in a lifetime. With more than 190,000 followers on twitter and 462,000 on instagram, you can tell that she has a husge influence on a lot of people but you can also bet that her timeline is a beehive filled with stings all the time, but yet she’s managed, mostly, to come out the better for it.
She makes you feel so great about being plus-sized and she never discourages anyone who doesn’t want to be plus-sized, all she wants is for women not to hate their bodies, and I can’t help but love her for that.
