Chubby girl group ‘la BIG 3’ promote their debut single

Sacchan (21), Ruby (22), and Ui Ando (21) appeared at Sankei Sports on the 18th to promote their debut single. The girls currently model for chubby girl fashion magazine “la farfa”.

Together the three girls weigh 210kg (around 463lbs) and they’ve formed a new unit called “la BIG 3”. Their debut song is called “Pochative ~Body mo Heart mo Glamorous~”; a cute way of making a play on the word pocchari (chubby) and positive. La farfa explains they use this phrase to encourage plump girls to be positive.

I’m not sure how I feel about this latest fad in Japan, but I am glad real chubby girls are getting some attention. I just wish they would get proper songs and get ups instead of just having to focus on food and their chubbiness. I mean, in their music video the girls are singing with ice cream, chicken legs, and hot dog microphones for goodness sake.

What do you guys think about the latest trend?

(PS: I would like to give a shout out to Fergie for helping me remember how to spell “g-l-a-m-o-r-ou-s, yeah~”)

      I just heard of Chubbiness and there’s a new one debuting. :O

      • That’s what I thought! These girls at least look chubby…there was like one girl in Chubbiness with thick thighs, but the others looked average at best.

      how come every time I see chubby idol group,they get forced to shove food down their throats as a gimmick?Food isn’t the only thing that defines being overweight,just saying.

      In Korea, there was one group called Piggy Dolls. In Japan, there’s this, La Big 3, and Chubbiness. Why can’t girl groups like these have normal group names?

        All Piggy Dolls members were replaced with skinny girls last year.

      These girls at least are indeed chubby not like chubiness where everyone is skinny making no sense to the name

      They don’t look all that happy or enthusiastic in the PV.

      I won’t be on board with this fad until they stop focusing on the fact that they’re chubby :/

      Well, in one hand it’s very sad that they have to promote on the fact that they are chubby… but, other girls are always saying how sexy/cute they are, so I guess it would be ok to have a song about how much one loves to eat and be chubby.

      “All About That Bass” for the Japanese crowd.
