Just found My best jeans, sizes 36-48-52 (EU). There are a few models! Straight, skinny, bootcut, comfort. And all of them in lovely colors! Love the mint color and there’s a soft orange coming as well! There’s a little extra going on with these jeans. Some nice little secrets: a correction at the front and a boob lift!!!! You can buy these online.
Plus model mag, magazine dedicated to plus size fashion and models has sparked controversy with a feature claiming that most runway models meet the Body Mass Index criteria for anorexia.
I am not sure what to think about this pictures with a straight and an inbetweenie (read ‘plus size’) model Size 12 (U.S.) model Katya Zharkova. The 1st question: why N A K E D??? With clothes on, you can show the world the difference. It looks a little like cheap porn, sorry for this! The other thing is: it looks like mother, daughter…. and NOT fashion! I think it’s good the fashion world is getting a wake up CALL… But I am curious where they got their facts? My ideal would be to see both models in media, magazines.
I would to have more diversity in the fashion world. Not only the commercial fashion, NO! I want to see it in the high end fashion also. Straight models in size 4, 6 next to the inbetweenies (size 10, 12, 14,16). It’s absolutely possible… And YES, it’s all about illusion, models are always betterlooking than average people…
ABC about size 6 called plus size
DOVE makes listening to women their first priority. Based on the findings of a major global study, The Real Truth About Beauty: A Global Report, Dove launched the Campaign for Real Beauty in 2004. Dove goal is to reach 15 million girls with self-esteem building education by 2015. This goal is not only possible by this brand. But this we can reach this goal if we all work together. Show more and more diversity in the media, magazines, TV, fashion, movies, etc. Models in all sizes and shapes. Mix of straight, inbetweenie and plus size models! And maybe a brand as Dove with this goal should sponsor more magazines or runways with this diversity of models! I am still looking for one!

huffingtonpost came with an article about ‘You’re Always Too Fat for the Fashion Industry.’ Why not book the girl who is two inches too short? After all, Kate Moss is only 5’7. Miranda Frum: Why not book a model who is a size 4 or 6 instead of a 0? Time for healthy models! Time for diversity!
TV producer Miranda Frum recounts her short time in the fashion industry, and explains how fashion agencies promote unrealistic body images:
“You’re quite pretty,” Agent said. I thanked her. “Have you ever considered plus size modeling?” asked Agent. I was humiliated.
Thankfully the only people to witness this defeat were me, the agents, and my mom. I shook my head no, and took my photos. When we got outside, my Mom was in a rage. “That’s how eating disorders are CAUSED,” she fumed, as I pleaded with her not to go back into the agency to tell the agents what she thought about their weight.
