Beautiful pictures of Denise Bidot made by the great photographer Jessica Lucassi. Just love her style: soft, strong and absolutely FASHION! And so great she can create fantastic pictures of different size models. Big applause, Jessica! Hope to work together someday!
Such a strong and personal message from one of my favorite and unique models, Christina Marie Boudreau (size 42 EU, 12 US), from Heffner Management on Facebook:
“At twelve years old I believed the lies of the media. Which told me that if I were thin, then I would be accepted, popular, loved, beautiful, and valued. After 7 years of eating disorders, I have seen girls at 80 pounds with tubes in their arms, who don’t feel beautiful or valued. In addition I have also seen curvy confident women who are free because they have trained their minds and hearts to love themselves despite societies standards of beauty. Take it from me girls, you CAN be accepted, loved or valued at any size. BUT, you cannot expect others to love you, if you haven’t first learned to love yourself.”
Coming back to the article about Zara’s size problem. ABC news made an item saying that America is too fat for Zara.
Alissa Wilson from stylishcurves.net and Shainna Tucker from A thick girls closet, both a size 48 EU (18 US) show in this video they won’t fit in Zara’s clothes. Shainna: “I love their handbags and shoes. I still have a place in my heart, somewhere for Zara”.
See below some reactions of people, after putting this item on my Stylehasnosize Facebook page.
Gorgeous inbetweenie Jessica Eisner (size 44) model with Bella Models in Australia. She has a great message for you!
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
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!!!
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?
