So Amber, how did you get your start in the influencer industry?
Amber Lynn: I just decided to start modeling stuff on my Instagram page. And people decided they wanted to look.
What does it mean to you to be a plus size model?
Amber: To me, it means being honest. It means showing what clothes actually look like, including bloopers, like when things don’t fit parts of your body (which I do). It also means being the target of trolls who take it as a personal insult that you dare to look happy or put yourself out there.
Was it hard to fit into the industry’s idea of how a model should look?
Amber: I’ve decided what I want to wear and when. I mean, it’s clear that I don’t fit into society’s narrow view of what beauty is, but I don’t let that bother me.
Do you think social media has played a part in the way people view plus size models?
Amber: Social media is a hugely pervasive being. It plays an enormous role in how anybody views anything anymore. So yes for sure, it plays a role in that.
What would you say is your personal style?
Amber Lynn: Day to day, my style would be functional (because I have four kids), but feminine. I like babydoll tops and dresses with leggings. And I need to be able to layer since I live in a really cold house!
If you could change one fashion rule, what would it be and why?
Amber: I would change the status of stilettos as the all-end of “sexy.” They are dangerous (laughing).
What are your thoughts on body positivity?
Amber: I think body positivity is absolutely imperative for the mental health and well-being of a lot of fat people. So many people NEED to see that they aren’t alone, people DO look like them, and they can and do deserve to have a joyful and happy life.
You’re such a positive role model for young women. Who inspires you?
Amber: Tess Holliday is definitely the first and foremost for me. She was the first fat person I ever remember seeing in any sort of publication who wasn’t covered up or doing something silly. She has been my absolute inspiration for giving me permission to wear what I want.
How would you define the word “confidence”?
Amber: That’s a tricky one. Confidence obviously means a lot of different things to different people, but for me, it means I have the ability to give myself permission to be happy, go where I want, and wear what I want. It means that I know I’m fine the way I am, and any issues people have been on them. Confidence waxes and wanes, but I’m generally on the up now!
