Plus Size Travel Too Podcast | S1 Ep1 | Combating Body Confidence Issues Whilst Travelling With Michelle Elman

I am SO SO SO excited to finally be launching the Plus Size Travel Too Podcast and oh my gosh, what an incredible episode to be kicking off with. I had the pleasure of chatting to the INCREDIBLE Michelle Elman, who is someone I have admired for years.

Michelle is a body confidence coach and as one of the most common questions I get asked as a plus size traveller is how to stay body confident whilst travelling, I thought she would be a perfect guest for the first season. Obviously, I was right as we had the best chat, where 90% of the time I was in awe of everything Michelle had to say.

Topics covered in this episode include:

  • The story of Michelle’s ‘Scarred Not Scared’ campaign and how it launched her body confidence career.
  • Michelle’s own personal travel experiences, and how being plus size has affected the way in which she travels.
  • How wearing a bikini isn’t the pinnacle of body confidence.
  • What it feels like to travel in Asia as a plus size traveller and whether it’s something you should consider doing yourself.
  • Tips and tricks to help you feel more confident when you travel.
  • The lack of diversity not only in travel but in the plus size industry in general.

We covered A LOT in such a short space of time and honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better first episode. I am so so excited (and nervous) to be able to say we’re finally launched! You can take a listen on either Soundcloud or Spotify, although I will be adding more platforms over the coming weeks.
