Paromita Ghosh said, Beauty comes in every shape and size. Every woman is beautiful in her own way. No matter what shape or size you are, you should feel confident in your own skin. Neil Roy said, Anokhi is a platform where we believe that every shape and size of woman is beautiful. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Indroneel Mukherjee said, Loving oneself isn’t hard, when you understand who and what yourself is. It has nothing to do with shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. Your own self is such a treasure. We hardly see any plus size model in the fashion industry. Why should shape and size be a barrier, it doesn’t matter what weight, shape or form your body is, you should be proud of it.
