We’re big, sexy and proud of it




Twelve of Bermuda’s biggest women — including one who lost more than 300lbs after gastric bypass surgery — are getting ready to show their assets in next week’s Miss Big and Beautiful Pageant.

The women, who range from their early twenties to early forties, can’t wait to prove that you don’t have to be skinny to be sexy.

Contestant Keisha Bassett, a 26 year-old banker at Capital G and aspiring plus size model, said: “Men don’t want skinny women anymore. They want a bit of cushion. My motto is when a man wants to make a sandwich he goes to the bakery and asks for rolls. He doesn’t go to the cemetery and ask for bones.”

The event is being organized by the man behind the Miss Teen Island Bermuda pageant, Terry Smith, who says it’s a great showcase for “fuller-figured” women, who constitute a large section of Bermudian society.

He said: “The world revolves around health and weight. Everyone says you’ve got to be smaller; everything’s geared towards slim people, but in reality, you don’t really see that in the real world. I’m doing the pageant because I want people to feel comfortable about themselves.”
