I Suited Up to: Inspire Others

Fashion and beauty guru Passion Jonesz uses her popular YouTube videos to encourage women to embrace their curves

swimstars_passionjonesz_fp

While most of us switch majors or jump career paths a few times before we find our direction, Passion Jonesz realized her path after uttering five simple words: “Stay plus-sized. Stay beautiful.”

Those two lines tumbled out of her mouth during filming of a YouTube video in 2009, and since then, they’ve become her tagline and, in a sense, her mission statement. Helping women of all shapes and sizes love themselves is the driving force behind her successful YouTube channel, where she dishes on everything from her pregnancy to favorite fashion finds to DIY hair and makeup tutorials. “I was always looked at as the pretty ‘big girl,’ which to this day doesn’t sit right with me,” Jonesz says. “I wanted to make videos showing I was more than just a ‘pretty face’ and a ‘big body.’ I had goals. I had dreams. I wanted to motivate others.”

In fact, over the years she’s minted her reputation as a trusted fashion and beauty maven. More than 130,000 have subscribed to her channel so far, and many more follow her on social media. This is in no small part because of her candidness and openness. Jonesz won’t just show off a new outfit, for example. She’ll also explain exactly why she loves each piece of it. And she’s not content to follow the fashion crowd. “I am not bowing down to a standard ‘look,” Jonesz points out. “I think this is why so many young women admire what I stand for and who I am.”

So when she gave of our swimwear her stamp of approval, we knew it was honest praise. She gave our fit high marks and said our array of swimwear for all types of women is “amazing.” “My favorite suit is the recent Gabi Fresh suit,” she says. “It’s vibrant and a great representation of a sexy, plus-sized woman. My favorite line has to be SwimSexy. It lives up to its name — a tasteful and sexy collection of swimsuits.”

Feeling confident in a bathing suit is something many women struggle with and is something of which Jonesz is keenly aware. Though she’d “put on the flyest swimsuit and the sexiest lipgloss and sunglasses and strut it in the water,” she knows that’s easier said than done for some. Overcoming insecurity and fear all starts with loving yourself, no matter your size, she explains. “I say show your skin and be happy,” she says. “Forget about what anyone thinks and be your best beautiful self. No one can take that away from you.”
