One thing we love about Orange Is The New Black star Dascha Polanco is the fact that she owns her curves. And in a world where a curvaceous figure receives unfortunate backlash, whether it’s the struggle of finding a designer to create a red carpet gown or things just not fitting correctly, Polanco is ready to make a change.

“I want to design something that’s between plus and between sample sizes — a brand that eventually would market to everyone, to all women, period,” the actress told Vogue in a recent interview. “I think that Hollywood-wise, people that have influence have to start making the change and speaking up. This year I’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, as far as fashion goes, just meeting with people, collaborating and brainstorming, because fashion is something I will invest my time in.”

While there has yet to be any other details on the line to be released, we’re super excited that Polanco is using her high-profile platform to help women embrace their natural selves, no matter a size 2 or 16.

“I’m creative enough, and to be honest with you, I don’t mind work,” Polanco continued. “Now more than before, it’s like, ‘You’re not going to make my shit? Well, I’m going to make my own!'”
