PLUS-SIZE FASHIONISTAS TAKE THEIR BIG DREAMS TO THE BIG APPLE IN TLC'S BIG SEXY

--The three-part series premieres on Tuesday, August 30 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT)--

(New York, NY) - They are fabulous, fashion-forward and not afraid to show off their fuller figures. They are the ladies of TLC's newest three-part series, BIG SEXY, which premieres on Tuesday, August 30 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).

The image-conscious industries of fashion and modeling are difficult to penetrate. With trends and looks that dominate the urban scenes, Americans have grown accustomed to perceptions of what is hip and forthcoming. BIG SEXY New Yorkers Leslie, Tiffany, Audrey, Nikki and Heather hope to expand and revise this commonly-accepted idea of what is beautiful and sexy - giving viewers a candid look into their lives as confident plus-size women who are shooting for the stars with their careers.

From designing clothing to booking modeling gigs, BIG SEXY will follow the ladies as they take over Manhattan to make plus-size sexiness more mainstream. Weight bias is notoriously rampant in their chosen industries, and it is their mission to prove that a bigger girl - the girl that most Americans can relate to -- can break the mold and change the fashion and cultural norms that have restricted and rejected them for so long.

Each episode will feature the women as they attend major industry events, parties and opportunities, all while giving a candid peek into the balancing of their personal, dating and family relationships as plus-size women. They are big, they are beautiful, and they are not sitting at home waiting for life to happen. They know better than anyone that real women can be sexy with curves -- no matter what society says.

BIG SEXY is produced for TLC by Atlas Media Corporation.
