Back in April, the world was introduced to Japan’s first magazine for plus size women: La Farfa. In the time since, the publication has not only been groundbreaking in the realms of Japanese culture, but for Western folks, too. The magazine doesn’t just use plus size models, but entirely focuses on plus size women and their sartorial needs, as well as celebrating and normalizing the plus size figure along the way. Plus size clothing is hard enough to come by for Japanese women — considering most stores only stock “one size” — but with the rise in popularity of brands like Punyus, it would seem the world of body positivity in Japan is changing, and arguably for the better.
