Size Does Matter: CeCe Olisa Shares How To Practice Self-Care

CeCe Olisa, a trailblazing influencer and co-founder of theCURVYcon, has revolutionized the way we perceive and celebrate body positivity. Her journey from an anonymous blogger to a confident advocate for self-love is a testament to the power of embracing one’s own unique beauty.

CeCe’s mantra, “Don’t wait on your weight to live the life you want,” resonates deeply with women of all sizes. She emphasizes that health is not defined by pant size but by the practice of self-care and self-love. This shift in mindset propelled CeCe to model for renowned brands like Nike and Ford Motor Company, inspiring millions with her empowering TEDX talk on building self-confidence.

In a society that often pressures women to conform to a certain body type, CeCe challenges the status quo. She believes that every woman, regardless of size, deserves to express her individuality, especially on her wedding day. TheCurvyCon’s groundbreaking bridal fashion show exemplifies this inclusivity, although there is still progress to be made in providing a wider range of sizes in boutiques.

CeCe’s dedication to inclusivity extends to the fashion industry. She notes a positive shift towards recognizing and celebrating all body types, with more brands offering stylish options for curvy individuals. Her favorites include Dia & Co for personalized styling, Anthropologie for whimsical charm, Lane Bryant for everyday chic, and Rent the Runway for statement pieces.

Beyond her influence in fashion, CeCe is the founder of Cocoa by CeCe, a beauty brand tailored for all fabulous individuals. Her mission to promote self-love and well-being extends to her free weekly newsletter, which covers plus-size fashion, wellness, and beauty.
