Contestants in the Miss Big Beautiful Woman pageant have big bodies and big personalities to match. This is a movement which has thrived in the US for years and has now burst into Britain, thanks to Linda Koch - the driving force behind the pageant. Linda insists she's not promoting obesity, but wants girls to be proud of their bodies - even if they weight over 20 stone. With exclusive access, this film focuses on four pageant finalists on Britain's only plus-size competition. They've struggled against discrimination, bullying, difficult relationships and young parenthood. Now they squeeze into swimwear and glam-up in evening gowns bravely baring their plus size curves to the world.
