The inaugural Miss Biggy Matofotofo beauty pageant for Zimbabwean women with a full figure has been held in Harare. Matofotofo means big and fluffy in the Ndebele language. The contest was for women who wear size 40 and above, with no restrictions on age, height and marital status.
Fifteen models took part in the final, after a series of qualifying contests held across the country.
"As big women we should conquer our fears. Zimbabwean men used to think that slim is beautiful, but the truth is that when it comes to the nitty-gritty, they prefer their woman to be bigger!" says Zodwa Munjanja, 36.
"This is about the true beauty of Africa," she says. "Big women are for chiefs and kings, and we can’t expose chiefs' items in public, so swimwear is completely out."
