Glamour magazine, on page 161 of their January 2007 issue, points out a disturbing fact. It seems that in 1993 fashion models were a size 6. Now, in 2006, just 13 years later they are a size 0.
Why would fashion designers make clothing for people of such an unrealistic size?
Fortunately there are plenty of designers who style apparel for us full figure women now. The clothing you’ll find at this plus size women’s clothing store is mostly a designed just for big beautiful women! The swim and active wear at this swim wear store is also styled just for us full figure women! Even a lot of the bra size swimsuits. Fantasie of England does design their swimsuits to fit both full busted and plus sizes women. But their leg cuts are a bit high for some of us. I wear mine with a swim skirt over it.
In the media full figure women are getting more good attention! Tyra Banks has featured Tyra Banks' Full Figured Top Model Lingerie
Apparently Tyra hosted a Top Model Competition for the next US bbw top model. You can bet they all look better than a size 0! The Tyra link will take you to Hips and Curves. A store that features nothing but sexy lingerie designed just for full figured women!
