'I have the curves'

HARARE - A Miss Curvy Zimbabwe pageant contestant has urged plus size women to embrace their bodies and flaunt their “assets” as they are God-given.

Rumbidzai Lestina Maoko noted that there are some sections of society that denigrate plus size women, making them uncomfortable with their bodies and that should not be a barrier in one’s life.

“Never let anyone or anything discourage you no matter what, keep chasing your dream. We know that society has a tendency of dissing curvy women, they make us uncomfortable with our bodies. There is nothing we can do because they are gifts from God,” she said.

This is the first time she is participating in a professional modelling contest and she is confident her curves are what the pageant needs.

“I’m happy to be part of the pageant because I have the curves that are needed for the contest,” she said.

The curvaceous Rumbi is currently into commercial modelling for two clothing brands Stylista and Lavish Rue and her aim is to further pursue modelling.

She believes she has the “killer” curves and will scoop the coveted gong come December when she battles it out with an expected 14 other participants.

“This is the first time participating in modelling professionally. My friend Nyasha took a number of photos which made people conclude that I have a great body and I should consider professional modelling. He introduced me to his friend who is into bridal wear for modelling in their dresses. The journey did not stop there and he led me to Mercy Mushaninga, the founder of the pageant,” she said.

Nyasha Technical is behind a number of her curvaceous photos.
