Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show celebrates plus-sized women, giving them a chance to shine and strut their stuff. It's nice to see a change from the typical "thin is in" mindset. Quite a few tears are shed by contestants as they re-live painful memories of being made fun of or being held back by their size. Some of their stories might upset sensitive kids.

Sexual Content

The contestants dress to show off their assets. Competitions include a lingerie contest.

Social Behavior

The message here -- that plus-size women are just as sexy and desirable as petites -- is invaluable, even if it is presented in a beauty pageant wrapper.
