If you’ve been anywhere near a radio in the past few years, chances are you’ve heard Lizzo’s upbeat anthems focusing on body diversity and positivity, and it’s not just for the ladies. The same agency that represents most Victoria’s Secret models launched Brawn, its division of plus-size male models including breakout star Zach Miko. We’re increasingly seeing bigger and taller male role models kill it in Fenty by Rihanna shows and on our Instagram feeds. Thankfully, brands are catering to the more-to-love community, too, with tons of stylish clothes for big guys.
