*''Film/TheInbetweenersMovie'' has Jane, Jay Cartwright's love interest. Although at times she's the subject of humiliation due to her size, many characters attribute her for her beautiful appearance (e.g the lady at the water park in the second film stating "She's a stunner, alright.") and her equally beautiful personality. Head over heels for her, Jay does NOT take anyone verbally abusing Jane's size well.

* Meghan Trainor's song "All About That Bass" enforces this trope while also encouraging larger people as well possibly thin people to enjoy how they look. The song's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PCkvCPvDXk#t=33 music video]] also shows that Meghan Trainor is not so bad looking herself despite not being no size 2.

* In TheDrewCareyShow, Nikki (Drew's long-term girlfriend) is introduced as a very slim woman who explains that she used to be quite fat until very recently. As the season continued, she picked up her old eating habits from Drew and each time we see her, she's fatter. She never does get the confidence to go with it and Drew's friends don't see the appeal, but Drew seems to get even more enamoured as she surpasses his size.

The Big Beautiful Woman, or BBW for short, is an aversion of Hollywood's usual standards of size and beauty and is accompanied by BeautyTropes or AttractionTropes which draw attention to her assets with equal or greater {{Fanservice}} or MaleGaze than thinner women in the setting, and without being used as [[FanDisservice blatant irony]]. She's not used as a {{Foil}} or TokenMinority to make other characters look more attractive, like a PetHomosexual or BromanticFoil (a raunchy best friend that demonstrates how well-adjusted or advantaged the {{Protagonist}} is). Even if not the protagonist herself, she may be part of the BetaCouple or a BreakoutCharacter. Her weight may not even be (and, in most cases of the trope probably won't be) the basis of her beauty or attractiveness [[note]]Think about it: even HollywoodThin women are rarely fetishized for their lack of fat. Fanservice usually focuses on facial beauty, curvature, or leg shape, along with other feminine features.[[/note]]; attention may instead be drawn to her beautiful eyes, feminine features or, more blatantly, her breasts or posterioróbut regardless, she is a knock-out.

This is most present in his original character, the plump [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/01/17-1/if-you-werent-sufficiently-overwhelmed-by-super-sonico-meet-super-pochaco Super Pochaco]].

While Pochaco's role in the anime is limited to minor cameos, she has gained a massive fan base that's almost as big as Super Sonico's.
