First there was Dove's real women' campaign (pictured aboved) LOVED IT! Then there was Beth Ditto (pictured below) who possed nude back in 2009 for NME and LOVE magazine and received much criticism for expressing herself in a way that others saw as disgusting and down right dis-respectful. To date it seems that larger, plus-sized, full-figured, big bonned women have failed to become anything more than a novelty in the fashion world. But could 2010 be the year that curves finally come of age? Realistically NO!!
V magazine dedicated an entire issue to women of different shapes and sizes entitled 'The Size Issue', which hit news stands earlier this year, which featured a high-fashion photo shoot starring five beautiful curvaceous bombshells.
I ran across these FABO pics of plus size models baring it all. And it gave the meaning "BEAUTY comes in every size, shape and color" a much greater meaning to me
The images below were shot by Norwegian fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo, who shot the models wearing everything from figure-hugging Agent Provocateur bodysuits to cut-out Gucci swimsuits. These beautful women boldly flaunted their full thighs, stomach rolls (or jelly rolls as some call it) and love handles, things that would normally make many women including myself cringe at the thought of taking pictures baring it all for the world to see.
Regardless of what size you are you should always express yourself, BE FREE and celebrate who you are today, NOT who you may be later, and love thyself un-conditionally because WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!
