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.
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.
