Male plus size models are steadily stepping-up, although still fresh, they are up and coming, plus it’s something that I’m looking forward to, seeing them make their mark in this fashion industry. I have been seeing a lot lately, neatly dressed from head to toe — looking dapper, from the likes of IMG model Zach Miko, Benjamin Montanez, Kelvin Davis, Claus Fleissner, Troy Solomon, and aspiring brawn model, Arcadio Del Valle, to plus size male bloggers Michael-Anthony, Riccardo Onorato, Alessandro Carella, and Syed Sohail. It’s a prominent journey for this blooming territory, there must be so many questions like who’s next, how big can this get, what does this mean for the fashion industry, and what do they plan to implement regarding plus size modelling for men.

This was something that was thrown in the deep end, but looks like it’s working wonders for the fashion industry. People are hoping to see more of this and I mean significantly, to the point that it sends the industry into a great deal of enthusiasm; something that could eventually happen overnight or gradually depending on the industries future interest and how many people are intrigued overall. I believe it will bring great business and opportunity to many people and designers, as they will be able to design new clothes that are fit for purpose for plus size men.


See below the male models mentioned above:

That’s it for now folks. Let’s see what the future holds for this sector, because I’m sure there are a lot of men who would never have thought this trend would be coming through anytime soon. A great thumbs up from our side to see this happening.

Let’s all hail the queen! The new ‘QUEEN OF THE BIKINI’ collection of swimsuitsforall with US blogger GabiFresh is just amazing. Swimsuitsforall did a full queen theme, by presenting Gabi as a modern plus size Cleopatra.

The new collection is again colourful, combining black with an array of prints, sexy mesh paneling, and sporty accents, available in sizes 12 to 24, and it has the olive green swimsuit as the eye catcher. Since the very first collection swimsuitsforall did with GabiFresh all items were sold out fast. The request for new plus size swimsuits is big and curvy women want to look as amazing in a bikini as thinner women.  So be fast and shop the whole collection here.

Let the beach be your place. Now you only have to wonder where you will go for the summer holidays this year – Puerto Rico, Cuba or rather Barbados? Well, a curvy queen looks great anywhere with this collection!

Have fun while shopping and always remember to love yourself and love your body.
