Dascha Polanko: ‘I love being thick. I love having things to move around′

February 14, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image by Versus50 Comments »


Orange Is the New Black actress Dascha Polanco recently opened up about sample sizes and body image – here are her thoughts:

On body image:

“When I saw myself on screen for the first time in Orange, I was like cringing because I looked so big. I didn’t look curvy, I just looked big. And I felt like, ‘That’s not me.’ So I started working out. You know what? I’m never going to be a size zero. And I don’t want to be. I love being thick. I love having things to move around. To twerk with! I just want to keep it together and I want to have it controlled. I want to be able to control it. Not it control me.”

On sample sizes:

“It was very frustrating at the beginning. It was really disappointing, and I was like ‘I’m depressed.’ And [frustrated noise] I want to wear color when I have shoots or …. what am I doing? I like to show a little bit, you know? I want wear color, I like neon colors, I like white. I hate that term ‘sample size.’ We’ve gotta come up with a different term than sample size.”

The details from Daily Mail:

ITV News anchor Charlene White tweeted an unretouched image of a lingerie-clad Cindy Crawford, which went viral on Friday.

Marie Claire confirmed the shot originated from the December 2013 issue of their Mexico/Latin America magazine, and wrote ‘it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.’

Fans applauded the Photoshop-free picture of the supermodel – who was 47 then, and turns 49 next week – precisely for its realness.
