SHOULD PLUS SIZE TEENS DARE PARTICIPATE IN PAGEANTRY? Because of society's obsession with being thin, when most people think of pageantry, they imagine its contestants being tall and slim, or at the very least, slim. Many pageants even have height and weight restrictions to keep out those who do not fit into their mold. Because of society's idea of how pageant contestants should look, coupled with pageants' restrictions, oftentimes, plus size teens who would otherwise desire to participate in pageantry forego the opportunity. Some pageants, however, do not restrict girls based on their looks, but would never choose a plus size girl, no matter how talented and beautiful, to win. Few are exclusively for plus size women and teens, and one is strictly for plus size teens- Plus Teen USA. In this episode, we will discuss the pros and cons of the different options for pageantry for plus size teens.
