    'Here I Am' Campaign: JCPenney Launches Empowering Ads For Plus-Size Women

    Famous retail store JCPenney has launched a new campaign called "Here I Am" to celebrate its new boutique for plus-size clothing, with the mission to get everyone one step closer to body positivity.

    The company has invited best-selling author Jes Baker, Grammy-nominated artist Mary Lambert, fashion blogger Gabi Fresh, fashion designer Ashley Nell Tipton and yoga practitioner Valerie Sagun to help exemplify the spirit and beauty found inside everybody, regardless of what everyone's size is.

    i'm a respectable medium
    I just happened to notice and felt it was kinda mean
    even though I can see why they do it
    and I was glad they just didn't add the extra cost into all sizes

    If these women truly loved their bodies they wouldn't be morbidly obese

    Omfg...these ladies are so fat that their facial features are distorted and I'd bet their knuckles look like dimples

    It's sad, really..and when one is THAT overweight it's time to see a therapist
