"Once you go big, you never go twig." That's the motto and catch phrase for TLC's new show 'Big Sexy,' a reality show that follows plus-sized women in different aspects of the fashion industry. Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), the cast of the show talked about the show's mission and the affect it may already be having on women with body issues.
Clips showed a plus-sized model frolicking on the beach with a thinner model, and host Savannah Guthrie mentioned a pole dancing episode. "We need to represent different body shapes and sizes and be examples for our younger women," said model Nikki Gomez, "that there are curvy models out there and it's okay to be full-figured."
