Fashion vlogger Loey Lane is making a case for Disney princesses of all different sizes. Imagine! Lane made a video for Cosmopolitan explaining why she thinks Disney should feature a plus-size princess, even suggesting the name "Not So Little Mermaid." The video has clearly resonated with a lot of people, as it's been viewed over two million times since being posted on Saturday.

Why Disney Needs A Plus-Size Princess

Loey Lane is calling on Disney to create a plus-size Disney Princess

In her video, Lane explains, "We can't all look exactly the same and that's a huge reason why I think it's so important for there to be more diversity in everything that young boys and girls consume."

After the shoot, Lane talked about loving Disney as a girl, but being heartbroken when mean classmates compared her to villainous octopus queen Ursula.

The fact that the closest thing to my body that I could get was Ursula just hurt me so badly as a kid. And I grew up never saying that I wanted to be a princess or playing princess with the other girls. I know that it would have boosted my self esteem if I had had someone that I could relate to. . . or someone that looked remotely like me.

Barbie has already embraced the idea of women of different body sizes, creating dolls in four body types for their 2016 Fashionista line. Your move, Disney.
