Is your body perfect, too?
No matter what industry you're in the ultimate enemy for any model anywhere is to gain weight, right?
I didn't just gain a little, I gained 25lbs in a short amount of time. Now, back when I started camming and making clips, I was a UK size 8. I was this cute little blonde thing, often compared to Naomi Woods and Margot Robbie on cam. However, fast forward a little over a year and here I am, a whopping UK size 14, sporting pink hair and making bloated belly videos. Whaaat?!
Well truth be told, being skinny wasn't really my "default" setting. I was always a bit chubby but back then I got really thin from an emotionally abusive relationship, an addiction to diet pills, and overworking myself to the point of exhaustion. I knew it was only a matter of time before I would gain back the weight back that I'd lost - and then some - and I did. It took only 6 months for me to go from a size 30 pants to a size 38. That's JUST because I stopped taking the diet pills. Crazy, huh?
Well, what's a girl to do? I felt awkward camming again and wanted to change my whole setup but I'd spend so much time creating "Delilah Dee" that rebranding would only cost me time and money and I'd already invested in so much to make a name for myself.
I felt I was not quite big or beautiful enough to venture into the BBW niche and definitely not the tiny girl I once was anymore. Where did a short, chubby girl with a big belly fit into? I felt so lost and depressed, I had no idea what to do with my new body shape and my finances were suffering because of it. Then one day it all changed.
I was browsing around, looking for clip ideas, when suddenly the "bloated belly", "gaining weight" and "chubby" categories caught my eye. It's like the possibilities were suddenly flying at me! On these pages were the most beautiful models with stunning faces and sexy, soft and chubby bodies. I was both fascinated and overjoyed that there was a niche like that out there. I realized that the one thing I was so embarrassed about could very well be the thing that would become my redemption.
I then took the liberty of filming every type of content I could make with my big belly, wobbly thighs, hungry mouth, weight gain and all-round chub. The results have been astounding (not to mention, super fun and creative!) and my customers and fans have loved every minute of it. I've even gained quite a few new fans who absolutely adore my plumper frame. It's really true what they say, this industry really is for people of ALL shapes and sizes.
So if you happen put on weight and people turn their noses up at you, just ignore them. You'll be the one laughing to the bank, after all.
