Oh Boy Episode 34: Aimee Cheshire

Hey Gorgeous!

Oh no, so, this is awkward: I wasn’t greeting you just there. I’m sure you look like a damn summer peach, but Hey Gorgeous is actually a plus-size focused website and Instagram shop that features cool clothes, size 10 and up. And its founder — Aimee Cheshire — is this week’s Oh Boy guest.

Chesire wanted to be a plus-size model her senior year in college so she did what any aspiring model would do: she bought a book on how to model, emailed the author, and the author said, “Go for it!”

…That’s actually not the normal path, is? But it’s indicative of Aimee Cheshire’s nature: determined, focused and eager to take action, all traits that led her to eventually create Hey Gorgeous (with the usual windings and road blocks and forks along the way).

Intrigued? Need to feel inspired? Just looking for some cool pants that fit?

Great. Excellent. Plug your headphones in and let Jay’s soft voice introduce you to one Aimee Cheshire.
