Jaclyn McCabe isn’t afraid to make space for herself.
McCabe is the owner of the plus-size Magazine Street boutique Jaci Blue, and she returns June 15 with the second edition of her Not So Skinny Dip, a pool party created specifically for the New Orleans community she’s helped dress for several years.
The ticketed event may look familiar to those who have seen the Hulu series “Shrill,” in which actress Aidy Bryant is surrounded by plus-sized bathing beauties. McCabe’s version is much the same, though inspired by similar parties that have popped up around the country in the past several years.
“I wanted that feeling of, you’re not alone,” McCabe said. “I’m not the only one that feels this way about my body. I’m not the only person, but if I can see your size is beautiful, maybe my size is beautiful, too.”
