“Believe it or not, not all plus-size women are ashamed of their bodies,” McGrady said while on the “Shattering the Comparison Culture: Dressing For You” panel.

McGrady also said she tries not to let the negative comments get to her, “I’ll wear a crop top with shorts if I want to . . . I think it’s so empowering.”

But while she tries to ignore the trolls, it doesn’t mean they don’t try anyways. Her favourite response to haters, “Oh, don’t be silly.”

“I put my body out there . . . I get a lot of hate, and it sucks . . . on the flip side, I see positivity . . . by being in the spotlight, we get our message out there and people relate to the conversation,” she said.
