San Francsico, CA, September 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- WooPlus, leading dating app for curvy people and their admirers, has released findings from a user-based survey about body positivity and the plus sized community.
The app, which has over 3 million users, first launched in 2015 as a comfortable dating place for women with curves and their admirers. The survey was conducted online from April through June and includes responses from users in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Findings from the survey include:
- 43% of users admitted that insecurity and low self-esteem about body size used to be big hurdles in their relationships
- 55% of users believe there is less stigma in embracing diverse body types than there was ten years ago, due in part to the body positive movement
- Nearly 40% of users do not have a preference in wording used to describe the plus sized community (i.e. curvy, fat, thick, full figured, etc), while over 20% don’t believe a label should be used at all
- 83% of users believe that the body positivity movement is beneficial to their community and daily life
WooPlus has long been committed to creating a female friendly, body positive, dating community for plus-sized women. In 2016, WooPlus introduced a feature where female users could review, rate and comment on male users after they are interacting with on the app. Profiles with low ratings are kicked off the app. As a result, over 90% of female users chose to review their interactions with male counterparts and thousands of “fat-shamers” were removed from the app due to bad reviews or inappropriate behavior.
This year, WooPlus was the first niche dating app, to be featured in the Google Play store, selected from over 3.5 million apps available on the platform. The app’s feature in Google Play speaks to its core mission of inclusion and celebration of the diversity of mind, spirit and body not only in online dating but also for society as a whole.
