WE WANT MORE PLUS SIZE BRANDS TO REPRESENT BIGGER SIZES!

WE WANT MORE PLUS SIZE BRANDS TO REPRESENT BIGGER SIZES!

english

I am thrilled to see how the most wanted plus size brand of the US featured a size 28 model for their newest lookbook. The plus size brand Eloquii started to feature bigger models for their lookbooks. This time they show plus model and blogger Emmicia Bracey. Though it’s not the first time they featured bigger sizes, it is for me the first time I saw it. And I loved it!

If you ask me plus size brands should present more plus size women who are above size 16 also. I don’t want to exclude the smaller plus sizes, I just want to include the queen size women.
Why is this still so difficult to do?
Eloquii found them by asking bloggers to do this. Is this such a bad thing?
Honestly, bloggers are called the new fashion superstars for a good reason. Bloggers like me and many others we know how to pose. We try new poses with every look and we grow through our blogs. Bloggers are not only already proffessional enough to work with, but we represent also the real consumer. Mainly because we also consume like all the others. ūüėČ But yes, I like the idea of fashion brands using bigger sizes for their lookbook.

Eloquii is not the only brand who already did this. See below pictures of Tess Holliday who became a model for Monif C and pictures of German bloggers who presented their own designs for the brand Studio Untold.

Monif C is without any doubt also very trendy and everyone wants their looks, even we in Germany. Monif C and Eloquii proved both to be a hit for the consumers, because of their tredy styles.

Studio Untold is a new German plus size brand which is also very trendy. Studio Untold asked several German bloggers to design outfits for them and the result are 5 great looks. Some of the bloggers like Theodora Flipper, Conquore ¬∑ The Fatshion Caf√© and Lisa Mosch are even some of my favorite bloggers from Germany. I can already predict that they will become Germany’s answer for Eloquii and I am very excited about it.

Dear owners of plus size brands, please don’t be afraid to present bigger sizes in your lookbook. Your consumers will not hate or criticize you so much for this. They will rather think: “WOW, I am so happy to see a woman in my size wearing the dress I always liked from this brand.” And then the consumer will think that the model still looks great even with her big tummy. And that is so much more important in gaining trust! This was just an example, but as a consumer I know how other women feel.

Style & Curve stands for plus size diversity, therefore we want to feature different sizes in the upcoming magazine issue. I hope many more brands will also change their way of thinking and start to understand that fashion is for all sizes, all ages, all nationalities, all religions… – ALL WOMEN LOVE FASHION!

Cheers from Lyz Lupo :*

Ich war hellauf begeistert davon zu sehen das eines der angesagtesten Plus Size Marken der USA ein Model der Gr√∂√üe 60 (US Gr√∂√üe 28) f√ľr ihr neuestes Lookbook gew√§hlt hat. Und sie sieht toll aus! Die Marke Eloquii hat schon zuvor ein gr√∂√üeres Model pr√§sentiert, aber ich habe jetzt erst etwas davon mitbekommen. Ich muss wohl nicht extra darauf hinweisen, dass sowas in Deutschland unm√∂glich erscheint….Aber ich liebe es!

Wenn ihr mich fragt, dann sollten sich mehr Marken trauen Frauen zeigen die gr√∂0er als sind. Ich will damit nicht die kleineren Gr√∂√üen ausschlie√üen, sondern nur eher motivieren die richtig Gro√üen Gr√∂√üen in die Mode einzuf√ľhren. Warum ist das heute immernoch so schwierig?
Eloquii hat es doch auch geschafft, indem sie Blogger gefragt haben. Ist das denn so eine schlechte Sache?

Ganz ehrlich, Blogger werden nicht umsonst als die neuen Mode Superstars benannt. Blooger wie ich und viele andere wissen wie wir uns pr√§sentieren m√ľssen. Wir probieren immer neuere Looks und Posen und wachsen durch unseren Blog. Blogger sind nicht nur proffessionell genug, sondern wir repr√§sentieren die Kunden. Haupts√§chlich, weil wir ja auch Kunden sind. Und ja, ich mag die Idee das Plus Size Marken auch Gr√∂√üere Models zeigen.

Aber Eloquii ist nicht die einzige Marke die das erkannt hat. Siehe weiter unten Bilder von Tess Holliday welches ein Model f√ľr Monif C wurde und Bilder von Deutschen Blogger mit ihren selbst designten St√ľcken f√ľr die Marke Studio Untold.

Monif C ist ohne Zweifel auch eine sehr angesagte Marke und jeder will die St√ľcke haben, sogar wir hier in Deutschland. Monif C und Eloquii haben bereits bewiesen das sie ein Hit bei den Kunden sind, da sie so sehr gefragt sind.

Studio Untold ist eine neue Deutsche Plus Size Marke, aber genauso gefragt. Studio Untold fragte verschiedene Deutsche Blogger ob sie f√ľr sie designen wollen und das Ergebnis sind 5 richtig tolle Looks. Sie haben Blogger gew√§hlt wie Theodora Flipper, Elisabeth von Conquore ¬∑ The Fatshion Caf√© und Lisa Mosch, welche ich auch selber gerne verfolge und mag. Ich kann der Marke jetzt schon voraussagen das es die Deutsche Antwort auf Eloquii wird.

Meine lieben Gesch√§ftsf√ľhrer der vielen Plus Size Marken, bitte habt keine Angst ein Model mit einer √úbergr√∂√üe zu w√§hlen f√ľr euer Lookbook. Eure Kunden werden euch nicht zu sehr daf√ľr angreifen. Sie werden eher denken: “WOW, Ich bin so froh eine Frau in meiner Gr√∂√üe zu sehen die mein Lieblingskleid dieser Marke tr√§gt.” Und die Kunden werden auch eher denken das sie immernoch toll aussieht auch mit einem gro√üen Bauch. Das ist in meinen Augen sehr wichtig um das Vertrauen der Kunden zu gewinnen. Das war nat√ľrlich nur ein Beispiel, aber da ich auch Konsument bin kann ich es eher verstehen was eine Frau so f√ľhlt.

Style & Curve steht f√ľr eine Gr√∂√üenvielfalt, daher werden wir in unserem anstehenden Magazin verschiedene Gr√∂√üen pr√§sentieren. Und ich hoffe das mehr Marke ihre Meinung √§ndern werden und Anfangen zu verstehen das Mode f√ľr alle Gr√∂√üen, f√ľr alle Alterklassen, f√ľr alle Nationen, f√ľr alle Religionen…. – ALLE FRAUEN LIEBEN MODE!!!!

Liebe Gr√ľ√üe Lyz Lupo :*

1. How did you became a plus model?

An agency¬†in Montreal spotted me¬†at¬†the age of¬†16¬†years for the regular size¬†category.¬†But¬†physically, I was¬†unable to hold¬†this shape and¬†weight.¬†So¬†few years after,¬†I applied for¬†the¬†Plus size¬†division! I’m completely in love with this category!

2. Was this also what you always wanted to do? Did you study? what?

Since the age of¬†4, I knew¬†deeply¬†that¬†I want to be a model.¬†I always liked¬†to be¬†filmed¬†and play¬†the star in front¬†the¬†camera. For¬†me this is the¬†ideal¬†time to¬†let me go, fall into¬†my¬†magical world¬†and share it with¬†the world. ūüôā

3. Why do you regard yourself as a plus size model?

I¬†consider myself¬†as being¬†a plus size,¬†because I have curves. I have a¬†refined¬†waist and¬†predominant hips. I wear¬†14 and¬†I train¬†regularly to¬†be¬†FIT. Being¬†plus size¬†does not mean¬†necessarily, say¬†(Big), but voluptuous to me¬†and comfortable in their own skin. Personnaly, it¬†simply¬†leads¬†to¬†be¬†healthy, well¬†in my body and¬†God knows¬†I eat¬†as I please… lol

4. What are your wishes for 2014?

WOW, this is a very good question. I like that. 
Firstly, I want to develop myself.¬†I am a woman¬†who¬†works a lot on me. I like to learn¬†about myself. I love meeting¬†new people¬†who have full of motivation, inspirations,¬†desires¬†,always in¬†search¬†of¬†success¬†to¬†excel and become better. So, I wantto ¬†travel, meet positive people, reinforce my relationships with my loyal contacts and being recognized of my good work. ūüôā

5. What was the best thing that happend to you?

There are many good things that happening to me. The birth of my son was one of the greatest moments in my life. A tuning point was beginning. There was also the day i choosed to get involved in fashion completely and doing nothing else than FASHION!! A big jump when you are a single mom.

6. What was the worst thing that happend to you?

When my father was diagnosed with a Lungs Cancer in 1998 and thereafter he survived 3 recurrences. He’s alive and I am very proud of him.¬†
