The Outside World Plus-Size Model Gets Body-Shamed But Her Brand Wasn’t Having It Published 1 year ago on Jan 16, 2018 By Will Gardner It takes real courage to go outside and exercise when you’re on the larger side. Not only do people say the cruelest things, but it can even be a real challenge to find the supplies you need to get started. This Is Anna O’Brien’s Story Meet Anna O’Brien.
