Real Housewives Of Toronto Star Roxy Earle Opens Up About Starting ‘My Size Rox’ Movement On Social Media!

Roxy Earle caused controversy in the media and social media when she was first announced as one of the cast members to join The Real Housewives of Toronto. While many labeled her as the first “plus-size” wife of the franchise, she launched a movement on social media called #MySizeRox.

The body activist and fashionista says that conversation in the media and interviews became monotonous, “One day I said, ‘stop calling me plus size- I am my size and my size rocks!’ and a movement was born!” she told Beyond Fashion Magazine.

Roxy founded #MySizeRox, a movement she created on social media that encourages people of all shapes and sizes to love the skin they’re in - the hashtag has also been used by thousands of fans who are fighting back against beauty standards.

“It’s very inspiring when you kind of realize that you’ve been able to touch one girl’s life, then all of a sudden you become very motivated,” said Roxy. “I woke up this morning and I read a message from a girl, she sent it last night, and she has Bulimia but she’s eaten properly for the last 25 days based on something that I posted 25 days ago,” Roxy recalls this powerful moment, “She says she feels good and her mind feels good and that’s the stuff that my heart just explodes for.”

Roxy says there’s still a long way to go before representation for all sizes is the norm, “Someone said to me the other day, ‘you’re part of a really important trend’ and I was like ‘I really hope I’m not a trend’ I really hope that this just becomes the new normal.”

Earle then revealed why it was important for her to bring this topic up when she joined RHOT. “As soon as I was going to do reality TV, I said to myself, ‘If you’re going to do this, you have to be 100% yourself and show the good, the bad and the ugly. Everyone’s gotta see it.’”

“I think I’m a good person and I love myself wholeheartedly so I was very comfortable being myself.”

Earle also shares why it's important for her to fully embrace herself, adding that self-love is something she practices every day.

“I’ve taught myself to wholeheartedly embrace myself in a world that hasn’t necessarily reinforced me that I’m beautiful, but I actually think I’m beautiful.”

“I do things that make me feel good,” she told Beyond Fashion Magazine. “Every single day I do little things that add up to making me confident and that confidence is what leads to one day you being confident.”
