Zareen Khan empowers plus-sized women by walking the ramp in lingerie – watch video
Bollywood actress Zareen Khan has come out in support of plus-sized women at a fashion show which was organised for plus-sized females in India. It is touted to be the country’s first ever fashion show that showcased modern Indian plus-sized women from different age groups.
The women belonging to different age group were spotted walking down the ramp in select pieces from the International lingerie brand Parfait’s new collection. The lingerie brand made its foray into India with its unique fashion show.
Zareen Khan, who used to be a plus-sized girl when she was a teenager, shared her experience on the occasion. The ‘Veer’ actress said, “Lingerie is not one size fits all, and neither are the women who wear it both on and off the runway. It is great to see Parfait celebrating size inclusivity. Available in varied sizes and colours, Parfait lingerie is beautiful and very comfortable to wear.”

While interacting with the media at the fashion show, she said, “I have been in plus size when I was in school and college and as a growing up girl, it’s very important to wear the right lingerie. Especially when you’re growing up, when you’re becoming a woman. As a plus sized girl, I did not really have a lot of options like the thinner girls have or the not plus sized girls have.”
Zareen Khan added, “It really felt bad as I don’t know why plus-sized people are always taken as the odd one out and not a lot of focus is given on them, whether it is clothes or lingerie. I am here to support this cause that they’re celebrating plus sized women and since I have been plus sized when I was a teenager, I’m all here for support.”
‘Hate Story 3‘ actress blamed society for making these plus-sized people feel inferior and bad about themselves. But, she was thrilled to see these women walking on the ramp. Recalling her college days, she said, “I don’t think this kind of confidence even I had when I was a teenager. So hats off to their confidence and more power to them.”
