What gives? According to Dascha Polanco, it is all about her body type and size.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Polanco spilled all the tea on how hard it is to be a woman in Hollywood with curves. Spoiler: It’s hard AF. And it isn’t just Polanco’s perception of things. Her close friends and coworkers have confirmed the sad fact that she’s not being dressed by big-name luxury brands because she’s curvy. She’s even been turned down from brands she admires and wears already.

“Oh, you’re not the sizes we have, not right now, maybe in the future,” Polanco told Vogue about a brand she already buys and wanted to wear to events. “Now even if they want me to [wear their designs] down the road, I will not give them the pleasure. It’s disappointing, but I try to work with up-and-coming designers who will make things for me and who will collaborate with me. People who love my curves and embrace them as much as I do.”

It’s a shame, too, because girl. looks. fierce!

And she is quick to call people out who try to lessen her with their body shaming comments.

Doesn’t matter if it is a full-length flowing gown…
