This Latina Model Has A Growing Clothing Line For ALL Women

Denise Bidot is one of the world’s most famous plus-size models, and she is taking a stand for body positivity like never before. The Puerto Rican-Kuwaiti model, who was raised in Miami, wants everyone to know that There Is No Wrong Way To Be A Woman.

Denis Bidot is a plus-sized model with a mission: making women comfortable with their bodies.

As a part of her mission, Bidot is posting photos of herself on Instagram without any retouching.


And she looks damn good doing it.

She has also started a clothing brand called There Is No Wrong Way To Be A Woman.

“The strength of a woman is unparalleled and society’s definition of beauty often overshadows it,” Bidot wrote on the website. “I want to show that not only are we strong, but our differences are exactly what makes us beautiful. After all, a rainbow would be pretty boring if it was just one color and size.”

Originally, Bidot wanted to be an actor. But she was constantly turned down for roles because of her weight, according to The Cut.


“I actually moved to L.A. in 2005, and I wanted to be an actress. I would go out on all these Disney show auditions, and it was so easy to be yourself,” Bidot told The Cut. “Then I turned 18, moved to California, and was constantly being told that I needed to lose weight. I was like, ‘Look, I should be enough. Why is talent not enough?'”

Now, it’s important to know that her campaign is not anti-straight-size women. It is an inclusive campaign aimed at accepting women of all sizes and colors.


“I get asked all the time that we don’t look the same as straight-sized models and I am like, ‘Why does it have to be a versus.’ Why does it have to be straight-sized vs plus-sized,” Bidot told E! News. “I think it is one big industry. I am doing amazing things. I have to say we work out, we run around town, we most of the time are traveling so it’s hard not to be running through airports. We are just us.”

Bidot never expected to be a model until a chance encounter with a photographer.


According to her interview with The Cut, Bidot was doing makeup for a plus-sized model when the photographer asked if she would be interested in modeling. This was after the model had given up on her acting career.

“Shortly after I shot the images with her, she started getting calls like, ‘Who is this girl? Who is she signed to? What’s she doing,'” Bidot recalled to The Cut. “I ran through the door and realized what an amazing opportunity it was.”

She credits social media with the wider acceptance and success of plus-sized models and for the success of her own body positivity campaign.


“Social media had put the power back in the consumer’s hands,” Bidot told The Cut. “[Modeling] is a way to speak up, be recognized, and to be that person that I never had growing up.”

Like us, Cardi B is about the “suck it in life” this quarantine.

We’ve always known that the rapper knew how to keep it real. Especially when it comes to body confidence. The beloved Domicanana with Trinidadian roots has been trying to live her best life while in quarantine and part of that has been showing off her body in a lineup of pretty impressive bathing suits.

Exhibit A: these stringy bikini looks show how divine and body pos she is.

How y’all doing on this beautiful Monday ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The rapper posted this beautiful picture of herself earlier this week after revealing that she had a new tattoo finished on her back. “Okay guys! Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh,” Cardi wrote in a caption to her Instagram. In a separate clip to her Instagram, she credited tattoo artist Jamie Schene of Union3Tattoo for the work.

I mean… just look at her.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, the rapper got real about her pictures and admitted to being about that “suck it in life.”

Suck it in life .

“I suck the s–t out my stomach for this pic so appreciated,” she wrote in the caption to her Instagram post. In it, Cardi can be seen wearing a teeny bikini and lace-up stilettos. To follow up, the rapper shared another Instagram video, this time of herself walking towards the camera in her bikini, and faulting her body. When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to flock to the comments and gas up the rapper.

“Same here sis!!! ,” Antonique Smith the actress from “Notorious” wrote in the captions. “Thank you for the honesty!” “If this ain’t da realest shii,” sevyn added to the comments.

It’s no surprise the rapper is being open about her body. She has a long history of being honest about her own body positivity and experiences with liposuction and receiving plastic surgery after giving birth to daughter Kulture. In an interview with E! she explained that speaking openly about the procedures was important for her she does not “like lying about things.”

Bad Bunny’s ‘Safaera’ Is No Longer On Spotify And Fans Are Pissed All The Way Off

Bad Bunny’s ‘Safaera’ Is No Longer On Spotify And Fans Are Pissed All The Way Off

Spotify / badbunnypr / Instagram

There are a few things bringing us joy at the moment. One of them would have to be our favorite songs, movies, tv shows, and other forms of entertainment. That’s what makes the recent Spotify scandal so devastating to Bad Bunny fans.

Bad Bunny’s “Safaera” is not on Spotify anymore and people have some real questions.

Look, Spotify. We just want to know what is going on. Bad Bunny’s music is something special and it isn’t right to play around with something that so many people hold sacred. Not to mention that we are all in a time when music and other forms of entertainment are all some of us have at the moment.

Bad Bunny claimed that he knows why it got removed but can’t tell why.

Fans on social media want to know why the song was removed. According to a tweet from Spotify, there are some times that music gets removed temporarily because of licensing issues. This could explain the sudden removal of Bad Bunny’s song.

Yet, the song’s sudden departure has left some fans with no choice but to cancel their Spotify Premium subscriptions.

Now, we don’t know if people really followed through with it or are posting these screenshots for clout. However, if social media is a measure of customer dissatisfaction, there are a lot of upset Spotify users right now.

It is really affecting people and their already disastrous 2020s.

We’ve been quarantined for months. Concerts and large gatherings in major cities have been canceled for the rest of the year. This Bad Bunny album has been a major moment and now one of the most popular songs from the album is gone from Spotify.

Some people are willing to reverse the release of Bad Bunny’s last album to bring back “Safaera.”

Bad Bunny recently released an album of unreleased songs to give his fans something new to listen to. Yet, it seems like some people are just not interested in the album if they have to go without “Safaera.”

It seems pretty clear that Bad Bunny fans want one thing, “Safaera” back on Spotify.

Hopefully “Safaera” will be coming back to Spotify before you know it. So, sit tight, take a deep breath, and just wait until the song comes back to the streaming platform.
