"More 2 LOVE"

ME; plus-size, pro-life & proud...

Awkward situations surrounding plus-size models + gorgeous @ any size women have caught my attention lately:::::::

1. im a big girl, more than vivacious! im not proud 2 b on the unhealthy size of curvy, but im not going 2 b ashamed of my size either!! im comfortable with my body + try 2 dress for my size and body shape 2 show off the best parts of me... i read this post by Bryanboy (http://www.bloglovin.com/m/52801454/1) about Gemma Ward's weight gain of late. As a bigger girl i neva spotted anythin i deamed offensive or out of order. HE WAS BEING SUPPORTIVE PEOPLE!!!! ;) shes evidently curvier than before, + not only was Bryanboy supportive but even went a step further + encouraged the plus-size model niche!!! how was this offensive/rude in any way???? Bryanboy is nothing but hilarious! hes not afraid 2 call out a fugly outfit or blast a politician 4 a $40,000 lunch :) follow him all the way http://www.bryanboy.com/ <3

2. i dont shop 4 my clothes on the high street @ my size (couldnt live without Evans!! they owe me after all ive spent lol), but even their models + ad campaigns arnt representative!! me & my housemate had a lengthy natter bout this a while ago; although they dont need 2 go 2 extremes + place a size 32 in their catalogue, why are none of the models over a size 14??? 2 see models @ size 14, 16 + 18 (even 20,22) wuld b refreshing + representative!!

3. after i read Bryanboy's post about Gemma Ward, i got 2 thinking even more about the plus-size model world... i realised i dont really know of any plus-size models or that side of the industry!! u'd think i wuld b well involved?! ;) soooo i went on google attact.... the first thing i came across was a 'top 10 plus-size models' survery on askmen.com! i was surprisingly refreshed by the curvy, vivacious women i found men lusted over! except 1 that is!! plus-size means PLUS-SIZE, not 'had an extra cupcake @ lunch'!! this girl below @ #6, Kate Dillon, is beautiful, but surely u cannot consider this plus-size??? 'normal' catwalk models shuld b of this size, NOT considered an extreme:



JUST 2 B CLEAR... IM NOT SUPPORTING AN UNHEALTHY LEVEL OF OBESITY, BUT CURVY & REAL WOMAN IN THE MEDIA WOULD B A PRODUCTIVE & REFRESHING THING 2 SEE <3

well... rant over 4 2day!! hope every1's had a fabulous weekend xoxo

  1. I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

    They're all gorgeous.

    The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
