Feeling that Extra Love

Our plus size range Extra Love represents the love, confidence and belief that every woman should have in herself and her body. Our clothes are a reminder that all women are beautiful and unique, no matter what shape or size, and deserve to look and feel their best every single day.

Plus size model and body positivity influencer Neha Parulkar is a trailblazer in the conversation on inclusivity. With her infectious smile, radiant positivity and inspiring confidence, she is a role model for women across the country who have struggled with self-doubt stemming from increased body weight.

This isn’t surprising. Popular culture and the media not only propagate skinny bodies as beautiful, but also tag bodies that are larger than this standard as unhealthy and undesirable, making larger-bodied women feel less than perfect.

Independent
And free-spirited

“For years I was constantly in a war with myself. Everyone around me told me how big my body is, how huge my arms are and how I don’t fit into the standards of beauty. While I was always conscious, insecure and struggling with body image issues, there was a part of me that just wanted to break free from these stereotypical norms of beauty.

In Libas Extra Love:

I wanted to be secure, feel good about myself, be proud and for that I knew I had to accept myself first and not look for validation outside.

It was time I made peace with my mirror. Today, I am obsessed with becoming a woman comfortable in her own skin. I’m obsessed with my body. My journey towards self-acceptance has taught me that no love is bigger than self love! Everyday, I wake up, look myself in the mirror and love myself a little extra!”
