About Sydney To The Max
The episode, “Honey, You Shrunk The Fit,” delivers a poignant and relevant message about body positivity in both decades. In present day, Ruth is excited when she is invited to be a brand ambassador for a popular clothing line. The brand is Britney Nashville. When none of the “one size fits all” clothes don’t fit, Sydney experiences self-doubt and becomes obsessed with changing herself to fit the clothes, including altering photos and filters on social media and more. In the ’90’s, Max enlists Leo to help him get buff to impress Alisha. When that doesn’t work, he tries to fake having a new muscular physique.
