Denise Bidot is a 28 years old Puerto Rican and Kuwaiti plus-size model. She is a TV personality, the voice and advocate for curvy women and self-love.
Bidot always knew, that she is supposed to be in the entertainment industry. So she moved from Miami to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to pursue acting, but she was constantly requested to lose weight. She went to makeup school and began working behind the scenes as a makeup artist.
Denise got really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. She was discovered by a photographer, at one of the photoshoots where she was doing a makeup for a plus-size model, and shortly after she became a part of a well-known modeling agency and moved to New York.

Currently, she is one of the most recognizable plus-size models and as a single mom, Denise aspires to continue to focus on spreading the message of ‘being you is what defines real beauty.’
