WHO IS THE PLUS-SIZE QUEEN?

I have been asked who I would give the “Plus-size crown,” to. So I decided to put 15 names into a hat and pick five by random, starting with a description of what I thought about each one. This was fun, so here it goes.

Rosie Mercado – Although I’m a sucker for wide hips, she is one of a kind, showing to be graceful with great persistence in reaching her goals. She is a woman with courage and a need to show what plus-size fashion is all about. With a high rise smile her cheek bones stand out, and to add the cheery on top, her teeth are as white as snow. In my eyes, there’s no such thing as seeing too much of Rosie.

Alex La Rosa – The caramel voluptuous princess, long hair don’t care — shines bright in her dress. To me, she’s so smooth that she can walk a catwalk and make everything look groovy that even straight-size models would look up to her. Having said that, she always smiles with a body positive credence, showing no slight form of doubt within herself. Something that I love to see in all plus-size women.

Joby Bach – Tall, thick, seductive, with good dressing etiquette. I can tell you that I honour her, that she looks good in every bit of garment she puts on, and I can tell she’s such a strong woman from her persona. Yes, I am receptive to peoples’ energy whether that’s through pictures or meeting them in person. Joby is eye-catching in every direction.

Laura Lee – This beauty, always shows what she’s got in her wardrobe, those endless sets of finery will never cease to exist. Her taste from tops to bottoms, and not to forget, her shoes makes me always wonder what she’s going to put on next. Logging on to social media, that inner voice in my head says, “surprise me,” and guess what, she invariably does. Laura Lee sends tingles down my spine.

Philomena Kwao – Say hello to the sweet mother of chocolate — the African dame to kill for, the lady in the high-rise skinny jeans. Not many women have the style she has; being so humble and curvy with it is a huge attraction for me to feel that she’s one of the most remarkable plus-size models around. She is a glorious goddess with a bonus of curves.

So who would I give the “Plus-size crown,” to? Well, I cannot decide because they are all beautiful and each have something unique to offer to us. They are all winners in my eyes, all can walk the catwalk with great style and curves, and I love how they make social media a better place; without these models I would feel as if something’s missing in the world full of plus-size women. They bring out the artistic side of things to show that they have an equal-eloquent flavour just like straight-size models.

Who would you give the crown to?

STYLE & CURVE SUPPORTS THE #BEACHBODYNOTSORRY CAMPAIGN BY SWIMSUITSFORALL

I shared on Style & Curve the newest post of blogger Lu zieht an, where she tells her opinion about the #BeachBodyNotSorry campaign from swimsuitsforall a few weeks ago already. But since we changed the website, it was gone. This is now the #Repost.

Here is what she said:

“The → #BeachBodyNotSorry campaign by swimsuitsforall is probably the best thing of the whole year. Denise Bidot is one of my favorite plus models, she’s just gorgeous! Not only is she beautiful but also a mother, so her body has already gone through a wonderful story of love. So there are a few “love marks” (yes, I want to call them that!) on her tummy. She also has cellulite like probably everybody on this planet (yes, even boys and men can have it!). swimsuitsforall did this “Beach Body. Not Sorry.” campaign with her and used absolutely no Photoshop. And OMG – she’s looking sooo hot! I don’t even look at any “imperfections” (why would we call them that?), all I see is one of the world’s most beautiful women, wearing sexy swimwear … and looking like a goddess in bikinis and swimsuits.” read more here: http://luziehtan.de/2015/07/beachbodynotsorry/

And what Lu writes is exactly what I also think about this campaign. This campaign was made to empower plus women and it is the response of the promotion of Protein World called “Are you beach body ready?”, which basically pissed everyone off.

Well, swimsuitsforall created then the hashtag #curvesinabikini and curvy fans shared pictures of them in a bikini. It started with this picture of Ashley Graham:

The social community likes to use the hashtag #curvesinabikini, but I see no one posting a pic with the hashtag #beachbodynotsorry. And we think something should change about this.

THAT’S WHY STYLE & CURVE WANTS TO SUPPORT THE #BEACHBODYNOTSORRY CAMPAIGN AND ASKS YOU TO SHARE YOUR SWIMSUIT PICTURES WITHOUT ANY EDITING OR PHOTOSHOP AND THE HASHTAGS:

#STYLENCURVE

#BEACHBODYNOTSORRY

#CURVESINABIKINI

The pictures that include our name will get shared on our page. Or you can email it to us to styleandcurve.com.

I love the power of social media and I hope you also think that we need more women who are proud of their “love marks”. I also shared some pictures like this on my blog Curvy Style Rocks:
