For the first time ever, international plus size pageant Miss Top of the World Plus Size (TOTW PS) will be held in Singapore, marking the launch of the republic’s first plus size beauty pageant. Helming the pageant is Singapore’s first plus size beauty queen Fiona Tan, who was crowned both Miss Top of the World Plus Size 2016 and Miss Plus Size of the World 2016, emerging as the first and only Asian and Singaporean woman to win two global beauty pageants.
This year, and for the 2nd year running, Miss TOTW PS will see 15 delegates representing countries from around the world, hailing from India, Ukraine, Thailand, Myanmar and Belarus, to name a few. This year’s pageant looks set to be a dazzling affair once more as all contestants are distinguished and inspiring personalities in their own rights. Miss Singapore this year is Priscilla Boh, Singapore’s first plus size model and Miss Netherlands is a
disability rights activist, having lost feeling in both her legs previously due to transverse myelitis.
Contestants will arrive in Singapore to compete for the Miss TOTW PS crown over 6 days from 8 to 13 November 2017, culminating in a spectacular grand finale night on 12 November 2017. Contestants will not be assessed by
conventional beauty standards but rather by their poise, intelligence and talents, through a series of photo shoots, cultural events and personal profile interviews. Sponsors include Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy, HapGlobal, Hygeia TCM Wellness, Ashleigh Ivory and we at The Wellness Insider are proud to be the official platform for this pageant.
Held annually to inspire and empower women across the world of all shapes and sizes, the pageant aims to provide a platform for beautiful, intelligent and talented ladies who have braved the odds of body shaming and have the courage to celebrate their bodies. With several Asian representatives in the competition, Miss TOTW PS also seeks to challenge typical Asian stereotypes of beauty and celebrate women’s curves while promoting health and fitness.
