Sims’ mother is Beverly Johnson, who is one of the first woman of color to appear on the cover of American Vogue.

When asked in this interview about the fashion industry’s obsession with thinness, Sims said, “I feel the industry is getting a lot better. Slowly but surely, things are changing in the right direction. I’m proud to be a part of this much-needed movement. The average woman in America is a size 14, and those women need to be acknowledged and represented.”
