About Plus Size Zeal – Our Story

Plus Size Zeal started as an online guide to facilitate body acceptance and a place where plus-size peers can get ideas to live life to the fullest.

Our founder is Megan Smith. She created this website after realizing she had a tough time to easily find products and services which could enhance her plus-size body and lifestyle. 

She found it a challenge to find high-quality information regarding furniture, food, hobbies, fitness, outdoor products, supplements, probiotics and prebiotics, weight loss strategies, self-love, plus size clothing and footwear in one place.  

That’s why Plus Size Zeal was built: To be the ultimate guide for plus-size people and to provide detailed information about suitable products and services specifically tailored to their needs, with a focus on body acceptance, self-love, and positivity.

About Plus Size Zeal

Plus Size Zeal was founded in August 2018 by Megan Smith who has been fighting overweight and body negativity all her life until she made changes to her mindset, lifestyle and diet.

Since then, Megan along with her team of experience experts has written actionable, data-driven, and well-researched articles on various topics related to being plus-size, body positivity and self-love.
