A pole dancer of a large size rebuffed harsh criticism and tactless comments about her weight. Buxom Jamie Hines, a 36-year-old resident of Illinois, claims that her 100-centimeter waist does not prevent her from enjoying pole dancing, and hopes that she will inspire other large women to take up this fascinating sport.

Although Jamie wears sizes 56-58, she came to pole dancing from burlesque, and she has to reject malicious comments about weight. By the way, the girl doesn't even have scales at home. She first tried pole dancing about a year and a half ago, and, according to her, it transformed her self-esteem. Now she is proud of her body and says that no one has attacked her on Instagram yet.

"Fortunately, I have never been trolled on the Internet, but it seems to me that it is only a matter of time. Friends told me that they heard comments being made in the auditorium when I was performing on stage. I felt great, but when I heard that, I was upset. People are attracted to different things. If I don't suit your taste, you don't have to look at me, but you also don't have to turn to a friend and discuss how fat and disgusting I am. What does it give?"— Jamie wonders.

When the girl was just starting pole dancing, it was difficult for her to keep her body up. But gradually she gained strength and began to go to classes more often. "I have moved from a person who could not do anything to a person who is able to climb his huge body on a pylon. The feeling of strength gives energy. But the large size complicates pole dancing classes when compared with smaller people, since we have to carry more weight. My instructor friend uses a metaphor: he says it's easier to lift a six-pack of beer than a keg."

Taking up pole dancing, Jamie has surprisingly developed the muscles of her arms and shoulders. According to her, she already had a "basic level" of self-confidence thanks to burlesque, but dancing classes further increased her self-esteem. "My body size hasn't changed much, but I can do much more. I think I can conquer the world," she says.

Jamie now teaches pylon lessons herself called Floppy Kitties ("Flexible Kitties"). She hopes that her story will become an inspiration and an incentive to raise self-esteem for those who are shy about their body. "It's great to set goals for yourself about the figure, but it's no less wonderful to love yourself for who you are and love your body for everything it can and does," she says.
