Her tip to others: Love yourself

FLAUNTING IT: Co-founder of The Curve Cult Rani Dhaschainey on the runway.

She is curvy and loves it.

All her life, Miss Rani Dhaschainey, 25, has never seen her size as a problem.

The co-owner of plus-size online clothing store The Curve Cult said: "I've never battled confidence issues. I look at myself and I see a normal person.

"As I get older, people tell me they're very inspired by me and the way I carry myself."

Miss Rani, who wears size UK16/18, thanks her mother for her self-confidence.

She said: "My mother became plus-sized ever since she gave birth to me and she always had fun with fashion. There were no rules.

"As I got older, she let me buy and wear whatever I pleased as long as I loved it and she loved it on me."

Miss Rani maintains a healthy lifestyle by going to the gym thrice a week and increases the frequency of exercise when she consumes too much fried or carb-heavy food.

EMPOWERMENT

On the runway experience, Miss Rani was happy to meet with like-minded people she can work with in future to empower other plus-sized women.

Her tip is simple: Love yourself.

"If you link your self-worth to your weight, you will never be able to love yourself," she said.

"Only when you love yourself and your body will you work to keep fit and healthy because you care enough."
