Krys Nicole sought to create a movement and name that would forever demolish the negative connotations given to plus-size women. She started with a blog, established in2008, that highlighted full-figured women and men of the entertainment industry.
During the success of her blog, Krys Nicole wrote a motivational book (“I’m Not Fat, I’m Thicksational®”) that talked about the discrimination and pain she felt, as well as the lessons she learned growing up as a thicker girl.
Thus, Thicksational became more than just a blog, but a brand with a book, dating site and apparel.
Thicksational is an energy – a term that represents that you are confident, relentless, thick and sensational. Being Thicksational shows that you are removing all barriers, no longer accepting those dreadful comments that you are cute, pretty, confident or successful for a “big girl,” but accepting that you are cute, pretty, confident, and successful because that’s who you were meant to be!
This brand is for any girl or woman who has been called: Fat! Obese! Large! Chubby! Big! Whatever society or people you know want to call you, the fact is you are here to stay!
