Skinny or curvy may not be a competition!

This graphic shows exactly what my mission is. I know this picture shows small size women, but it’s about the message. Size diversity should be ‘normal’ in fashion, magazines, media, tv and movies. It should not be a fight or competition!

Denying what size you really are?

Just saw this quote from Stacy London, an American fashion consultant: “Don’t get hung up on the size. If you feel bad about yourself because a 12 is what fits, take a Sharpie, and write ‘6’ on the label.”

This really makes me soooooo angry! Why would you??? No one is looking INSIDE your clothes… That’s the most STUPID thing… denying what size you really are… come on… you’re making a fool of yourself.
Just accept your size and body… ! If you don’t feel happy, make changes so you will accept it. By losing weight or going to the gym! “fashion and beauty cannot be defined or stigmatised by a label with a number in the neck”


“…Promoting postive body image ..”

Well made quality clothes in their size

Such a great post on Facebook from Alissa Wilson from stylishcurves.net:

“As plus size women we don’t all have the same views when it comes to body acceptance. I personally believe that as plus size women for so many years we were put down and told to hate ourselves and to hide until we look the way society thinks we should look. My passion and my fight for plus size women will always be to uplift and promote positive thinking I think about young girls who are doing extreme dieting just so they won’t be called fat. I think of young plus size girls who accept less than they should from a boy because she thinks her weight makes her not good enough. I think of the plus size women who find themselves too big to deserve well made quality clothes in their size.

And yes I do believe that it is okay for a designer not to make clothes in plus sizes if it is not their vision but what is not okay is when you put plus size people down as a response to why you don’t make clothes for them. If you want to lose weight and are not happy with your size then be honest and say so but don’t knock anyone else who is happy and plus size and vice versa. At the end of the day you have to remain true to yourself and what you believe. We don’t have to tear each other down to prove our
point.”

There you have a point, Alissa: we also WANT great clothes. And not only the ‘casual simple things’.
And my mission is the same as yours: to let young women,who struggle with their body and size, be proud of themselves. My message: dare to be noticed in any size!
Because style has no size!!!


Size diversity of mannequins in shops

Huffington Post wrote an article about a plus size mannequin. There were many negative reactions on this plus size male mannequin at a shop on Reddit.com. I must admit, the proportions of this mannequin are not ok: hands and head are way too small. Anyway, does it mean that for mens fashion it’s even harder to show size diversity?!?

For women it’s already accepted more. Showing clothes on different sizes mannequins in a shop. I think to give a more realistic image: it would be great to see more different sized mannequins in shops. Just to see how clothes will fit a larger size. What do you think?


BEAUTY has no SIZE!

SLiNK Magazine launches issue 8, ‘THE BEAUTY ISSUE’. SLiNK decided to shoot this seasons trends on models size 8-16. Normally they only work with plus size models (which are inbetweenies). The magazine promotes health and body acceptance at every size and while they still focus on fashion for women size 14+ they wanted to remind our readers that beauty doesn’t equal a size label. Of course NOT! Beauty has no SIZE! I love this concept and I love to see more size diversity in fashion. Well done, Slink!!!! Models like Karmi Pinning (size 40 EU), Philomena Kwao (size 44) from Models 1+ are in these pictures!

The items in this issue: 1. What is Beauty? 2. Does the Media Influence Our Perception of Beauty?
3. Should we use photoshop in fashion editorial? And more!

And some facts:
1. In the UK 4.9 million women wear a size 18+. The plus size clothing market has grown by 47% since 2006 and is one of the only fashion sectors not hit by the economic crisis.
2. They are still only showing straight size models in our biggest glossies. Crash dieting, quick fixes and food fads remain to be key to numerous women’s magazines, promoting unrealistic and unsustainable eating habits.


Psssst….. style has NO size!
