IT HAPPENED TO ME: I’m a Tony-Winning Actress and Yet I Still Get Announced As Simply The “Plus Size Dancer”

“Marissa, I have to ask you,” the interviewer asked.
“What is it like to be a ‘plus-size role model?'”

I never considered myself “plus-size.” Never. Oh sure, a size 14 was snug, and I was always able to find XL clothes with spandex that worked just fine. Or sometimes, I found those amazing stores that carry XXL or XXXL but sold them in the same section as the “normal clothes,” rather than in the back of the store where the plus-size clothes always live. You know, the place that never gets vacuumed and looks like an explosion of colorful beach cover-ups?
