Romance Stock Photo: Plus-Size Mermaid on Beach

A plus-size mermaid stands on a sandy beach on a cloudy day and makes a heart shape with her hands and fingers. She's wearing a mermaid "tail" costume skirt, bikini top and brightly-colored blue and blonde wig. This woman is of Samoan and Caucasian heritage and is over 40. She's in the "in-betweenie" range of plus size, at a clothing size 16. The beach is sandy and partially covered in seaweed. The water behind her is forming small waves, and land is visible in the distance.
