    April issue with Joanne Borgella on the cover. It totaly defines the term ‘plus size woman’. She has both the face and the curves to show it. She looks exceptionally beautiful on that picture. I love it!!!

  2. Karen Teulon says

    I love the April 2010 cover because it has full length shot of the model in young fashionable clothing, and is not trying to hide all her flesh as if it were a sin! I like that you can see her shoulders and her rounded arms, and I love the fact that she is a woman I can relate to. She is not a size 10 “plus size” model, but a model of a “real” size. She is somebody many of us can identify with, and she is presented in a sexy fun way, showing that you can be big, but still ooze confidence and sex appeal, and still have a full and enriched life. I love that she isn’t over styled, and has a plain simple top and plain jeans on. She isn’t being drowned out by colourful backgrounds or bold jewellery. The readers focus is just on the beautiful plus girl gracing the cover of the magazine

    I have to say January is my favorite. That cover exudes confidence, sexy appeal, exotic, beauty, and glamor, all the things that plus size women are, in spite of the many negative connotations that are tied to us. She is classic, classy an elegant. That the picture is black and white just heightens the beauty of the shot. And the model, in only a slip, looks stunning and beautiful, not crass like the shoot could have gone.

  4. Melissa Phillips says

    My favorite cover is August 10th I think the way that the model is posing truly showcases her figure in a flattering way and the background is subtle and not taking from the photo of the model. I would even say that it could have been cropped closer up so we can see more of her face, obviously she is a lovely girl. We know that this is a background of Hollywood and less Hollywood more model… Yet, out of all the covers this was my favorite…

  5. Plus Model Limarie says

    All of the covers are gorgeous in their own way but to enter this contest I need to pick a favorite. My favorite cover was November 2010 because I loved the rough gray beackground, the styling of the clothing, accessories hair and makeup. I also really like this model’s eye contact and pose. Hilary is on my list of favorites as far as posing is concerned and I always see her while shopping online with Ashley Stewart. Yep, November’s cover is my favorite.

  6. Sonia Elliott says

    I like April 2010 the best. The model is the girl next door type and is, in my eyes, truly plus size and beautiful! The fact that she is holding a guitar and it is a music issue just seals the deal for me!

  7. Joan Wren says

    I think they are all unique and very beautiful creative covers but I would have to say that my favorite one is the August 2010 issue because she shows sensuality and the minute I saw this cover I was drawn to every lil detail of her outfit from the stunning earrings down to her fabulous jeans. This look makes me want to go shopping and out dancing :) I love how the shoot was on top of a building in hollywood even though it didn’t really capture the more exquisite views of Hollywood it still looks alluring and captivating and she is the cherry on top that makes this cover very appealing.

    Thank you :)

    Joan W.

  8. ichoosethesun says

    My fav is August: the background, the lighting , the styling and the topic: denim! What more is there to say?

  9. Boti Kay says

    I love th oct 2010 cover. The model is stunning and is showing off her curves eforlely!!! Plus the cover says love your body! something we all need to do! besides skinny girls r for wimps hahah!!!!

  10. Francine Bruno says

    My favorite 2010 cover would have to be February but I most admit I am a little impartial to that month since I got married that Valentine’s Day weekend. This cover actually is reminiscent of the bridal style I chose. I went with a vintage Old Hollywood theme complete with a black Russian birdcage blusher veil, similar to the headpiece the model is wearing . I would love to win this contest because my first anniversary is approaching and I could use a couple of freakum dresses and lingerie for our celebration, LOL! On a serious note, thank you for allowing this opportunity and for consistently provide us, plus size girls, with positive self-imagery. Keep up the great work!

  11. Stiletto Siren says

    My favorite is the August 2010 cause Denise is one of my favorite people and plus models. She always looks amazing, sultry, and sexy and is also a fabulous person!

  12. Merenda says

    I love the September 2010 issue simply because home girl is Fee-Yus!! That electric blue dress paired with those taupe boots and those patterened tights give me so much life! Not to mention that pose (and double props for her being a southern belle quite like myself :D)

  13. Pamela says

    I love March’s cover!! While August is my 2nd favorite, I am seeing her everywhere…but when I see March, not only does her eyes blow me away, the whole look is sexy and not something you see all the time! It’s almost like Vogue.

  14. erin says

    I love February because it simple and noting takes way from the beauty of the model. I love the red text cause it helps the red lipstick pop more since they used a more neutral tones in the outfit the model is wearing. I really love edgy vintage looks she has. The lace mask is high fashion but it’s just the perfect balance.

  15. says

    My all time favorite is March 2010!
    Can we say Jerseylicious defined all day! Big hair, fur coat, n glam top n bottom. In addition, Chloe had an attitude of a Jersey girl oozing off this cover…..Its my fav cause of the Jersey feel and attitude.

  16. Nisa says

    The August cover was my favorite. The whole shot just oozes sex appeal, curves, and the strength of a woman who loves her body and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. I love this magazine with all my heart and can’t wait to see what 2011 brings!

  17. Courtney says

    I love the October issue with Flavia. She is the epitome of sexy. It goes to show how sexy a plus size girl can look. Love it.

  18. says

    I love AUGUST cover. She owns her curves and her pose owns the cover. The background, the typesetting and the model work together to bring the cover to be one great masterpiece. Denise Bidot takes command of cityscape and the pose is strong, sexual and confident. She models the jeans with the grace.

    I LOVE the August cover… hands down the whole cover works.

  19. Paula says

    January’s cover is my favorite. It is chic and it truly shows plus size as sexy and beautiful.

  20. Robin Heard says

    My favorite month cover is Febuary! It gives a romantic and sensual feel. It also taught me that you just don’t have to wear red for Valentine’s day. She looks amazing!!

  21. Kelli Smith says

    While I love the Oct black and white with an obviously plus sized model in a sultry pose, and I love the colours in Aug…my FAVOURITE is definitely January. The black and white, the classic elegant sensual pose with the absolutely beautiful girl

  22. Melissa Hudler says

    Even though every girl on every cover is beautiful, I’m picking August as my favorite. Denise really makes the picture just about her. Her pose invites you in and you just can’t help but to look at every inch of her, from her stunning face and hair down to the barely visable heels. The outift looks like it was created for her curves and hers only. The background is simply that, the background. You don’t care what city it is or what sights you see. You care about the beauty that is standing on top of the building (and quite possibly the world).

  23. says

    My favorite is August with Denise Bidot. She is very sexy, and that cover has a very good mood. I would like to be there. Most of the time covers are so “sterile”, nice faces, but nothing extra. That cover has something plus for me.:) And I like February and September too.:)

  24. says

    It’s incredibly hard to choose because each cover shows the range that you guys go after in depicting various plus size women! However, I’m going to choose January. It captures the essence of the classic Bombshell, which you know I love.

  25. Patricia Pruitt says

    My Favorite cover from 2010 is the February cover. it had some of my favorite things; lace, pearls, hair flowers, red lipstick, and a pretty party dress. i saw it and said, “Oh look a cover with someone that dresses like me.” plus February is my birthday month.

  26. lisa Parker says

    Okay. This was a pretty hard task. In the end the February Issue is my favorite. The personality for this issue just pores off the page. It is fun and playful without being busy. It pays tribute to plus size woman the best because we can all see ourselves in Mandy. One reason is because she is a contest winner- not a pro (yet) so she feels more like the everyday girl who has been transformed-adding the fantasy aspect. . Another reason is because it is a doable look for the everyday woman. A great cover moves me to see myself in it. This one feels like a representation that would be easy to achieve by the widest audience of woman. That makes it approachable. The mask adds a light, fun and romantic element. The cover is simple, classic, memorable, fun without being stuffy. I also like that the cover could really be any number of months, Change the wording and the February issue could easy be January or December, or really any of the issues from the year except maybe the Music, Swimsuit, and the Denim issue. Yay for the 9 month appeal! Go Mandy! Go February!

  27. Inez F. says

    The August issue (denim) seems just seems stand out to me. The woman on the cover is gorgeous and confident, and is rocking those jeans. The picture makes me wish that I was her. Very real. Relatable.

  28. Nikki says

    I would defintely have to say my favorite magazine cover is August 2010. I say this because when you look at the cover it says sexy. The model is showing off her curves and it says I am PLUS SIZE but SEXY and SENSUAL!

  29. Valerie Negron says

    I think august with Denise Bidot, really chic, high-fashion, but most importantly, a perfect example of plus size model beauty. The full length shot showcases the diva attitude while still keeping the soft, timid seductive touch. LOVE IT!

  30. says

    October 2010 is my favorite cover. Fluvia oozes sexy from this photo. This photo is universal and can be used for any magazine cover, plus or skinty minty (as I like to call them) sizes. The black and white picture makes the pink copy pop. You’re immediately drawn to the photo and the pink arial font “Love Your Body” copy at the bottom. I think the cover is universal and simplistic and sometimes that is all you need.

  31. Travis says

    I like the August cover the best, it shows that a woman does not have to be a size two to be trendy and sexy, thank god. I just more of society would hurry up and realize this, not everyone likes a woman that looks like she skipped her last 5 meals, some of us like the voluptuous curvy woman.

  32. Anna says

    August2010 – Denim

    Well all wear jeans, whether casually or dressed up. Jeans are american. Denise image relays freedom, luxury and curvy beauty. The sky is open, she curves conquering the world in denim, something we all wear!
    love it.

  33. Lisa Beckett says

    I would have to say that I like the January cover, because it is classic since it’s done in Black and White. It has a relaxing feel to the cover.

  34. says

    September 2010 is my favorite cover! The styling was super chic and sexy. Sarah Flack is curvy and beautiful. I also loved the location of the shoot. It really made the glam of the styling really pop.

  35. says

    AUGUST ISSUE IS BY FAR THE MOST STUNNING! IT’S THE ISSUE THAT MADE ME JOIN THE MAGAZINE AND FACE BOOK SITE. THERE’S A SEXINESS, ENERGY, AND EASY BEAUTY GOING ON IN THAT PICTURE THAT TRANSCENDS THE SHOT. SHE HAS A LOOK OF NO APOLOGIZING FOR HOW SHE LOOKS, BUT A “DON’T YOU WISH YOU ALL LOOKED THIS GOOD” ATTITUDE TOWARD ALL WOMEN. NOT EVEN WITH THE CAMERA IN HER FACE SHE SAYS A MOUTHFULL. I’M THE FULL
    “FULL FIGURE” WOMAN! HA TAKE THAT ; )

  36. Joella says

    August. Denise is sexy ,she’s curvy and she looks like a million dollars. The tones on the photo are gorgeous and I could see her on many other magazines’ covers. She transcends plus beauty into just beauty and that’s what I want people to realize. Beauty is beauty. The size of the person isn’t relevant.

  37. says

    My favorite is August…Denise looks gorgeous! Her curves are beautiful and you can tell she is so confident. She exudes sexiness, and looks darn good in those jeans!

  38. Denise says

    I like the April edition because shes a true plus sized woman. The covers with views of the ladies from chest up are not plus size ladies. A size 12 is NOT plus. Wake up people.

  39. Nikeya Young says

    I’m torn between the April & May covers, but the May cover with Jordan Tesfay edges ahead. I love the big hair & the Old Hollywood elegance of this shot. It’s simple but makes a statement of the beauty of the Plus size woman. The pic highlights the model’s awesome facial features beautifully.

  40. stephanie says

    It is a equal win for August and October. However the October cover is more realistic, and compatible with other covers I have seen. They both show a curvy women, with attire one would actually wear day to day. They’re easy to relate to, the makeup and hair is achievable and could be worn by anyone. When I look at the covers I feel as though my dreams are capable, and if they can model and look gorgeous and confident, I can also. It gives me something to aspire to. I’m not going to be walking around in a swimsuit or carrying a guitar every second, nor ammo I going to be holding my hair out straight. August and Octobers covers are believable yet offer that dynamic edge that show what a lot of other magazines don’t. It’s not something you can described, its something you can only see. When its right, you just know it.

  41. Jennifer says

    It’s a 3 way tie between January, May, and October!! January looks so elegant, but in a peek-a-boo way. May is glamorous and sexy, but in a way every woman can carry off. October sizzles with sex appeal, but in an accessible and easy way for women to emulate. I must admit April holds a place in my heart because that really is an every day woman, just doing her thing! I’ll go with May as my fave- it looks a little retro, a little sexy, a little elegant…and the look in her eyes! You can’t get away from her!

  42. Starra says

    I have to say April’s Cover gets my VOTE!

    # 1 It’s sooo AWESOME to FINALLY see a TRUE PLUS MODEL on the COVER!
    The cover is very natural and appealing and it gives me hope that there will be other TRUE PLUS MODELS on future covers.

    # 2 April is my birthday month ;-) **Blushing**

    TEAM FIERCE is indeed in the house!

  43. abra smith says

    I love the January cover.. of all of the covers it is the one that has stayed in my mind as I went through them. I even gave it time before I voted so i could be sure.

    Yep January it is… It is the most beautiful of all of the covers offered.

  44. says

    Definitely January! I’ve got an affinity for the retro w/modern appeal. I just feel like it was SO feminine and simple and just pretty. You wanna love her and that’s what every woman wants :)

  45. Krystle says

    I vote for the denim issue August. Denise looks amazing in those jeans. She’s showing off her fierce curves and looks great going it. I love her long flowing hair to. This is by far my favorite cover.

  46. says

    I love April because it shows a genuine plus size women. Not to say the other issues don’t but April is more on the curvier/heavier side and more women could relate. I also like this cover because the style is very easy to recreate. It’s a casual trendy and chic outfit that anyone can put together easily and pull inspiration from without having to spend too much money or being too over the top. I feel April’s cover is perfect for the everyday curvy girl who doesn’t want to go all out but defintely wants to add some style and glam without being so over the top.

  47. Andrea Jackson says

    I have to vote for August. The colors are soothing, the photo is beautiful, and the model is not only curvy but also captivating. I am afraid of heights and I wanted to be on that rooftop. Also wanted the clothes…..Great Job!

  48. Michele Lawson says

    Hello.

    I wanted to let you know that I look at every edition of the Plus Model Magazine. I really like all of the covers of the magazine and the women are absolutely beautiful, but the one cover that I love the most is the November 2010 issue. I really like Hilary Harper’s look and the out is fabulous. What made me more drawn to this cover is the video that was posted last month which featured the photo shoot behind the scenes with Hilary Harper. Ms. Harper brought class, pizzazz and style to her shoot. She looked like she was having fun and like she is a pleasure to work with. I think that she is “the bomb” as my kids would say. I just wanted to tell you guys how I felt. Thanks to Hilary Harper and Plus Model Magazine for the experience!!

  49. Maurisha Shay says

    All of the covers are so amazing I am really having a hard time picking my favorite. I think September and October 2010 are my top two faves. I love Fluvia so much that I think I will pick October 2010 as my choice. She just leaps off the cover and draws you in. She screams confidence to me and I love that!

  50. Melissa Stasiak says

    I have to say January! While all the women are beautiful, I just love Chloe’s retro pin up look with a modern edgy twist on this cover.

  51. Heidi says

    October is my favorite. The model is gorgeous and sexy, her styling is perfect, and the bold color against the stark black and white shot really makes her pop. January and April are close runners up.

  52. Lori Carroll says

    I would have to say I am tied between April and October. April for the true curvy woman, which shows how beautiful they can be. October for the layout itself it is captivating. As a photographer of real women myself I thoroughly enjoy your magazine.

  53. Denise says

    I feel that the April cover is the best cover. Not only does it show the model’s beauty but it also shows that she has a musical talent.

  54. says

    I absolutely love the April and August covers. The ladies are divine and they rock the Big is Beautiful theme. If I had to pick one it would be the April Cover. She looks confident yet comfortable, classy yet calm, and she oozes self love and acceptance. In a day and age where everyone is finding it hard to accept their curvy self, this model shows how you can be full figured yet command respect and she definitely makes me want to buy what she has on. She also shows effortless beauty and shows plus size ladies how to WORK IT!

  55. says

    I LOVE the September issue the best, but all of them are great nonetheless.

    For some reason, the fashion in the September issue stands out to me. That electric blue dress is a killer, and the accessories are perfect with it. When this issue came out, I was looking for an electric blue dress everywhere. That cover is very inspirational and not to mention, the model is flawless.

  56. sherry says

    I love them all! I like the April 2010 one the best because it looks more natural and like something I’d actually wear!

  57. says

    I love all of the covers (and Fluvia looks exceptional) but I too think Im going to have to go with April, she is the only model that personifies complete plus size for me, she has a beautiful face, flawless skin, fabulous hair, gracious curves AND thighs like mine ! (~_~)

    Smooches

  58. Tatiane Silva says

    October is my favorite. Fulvia is curvy, sexy and PLUS! She shows how a PLUS girl should behave. Attitude, confidence and all the good things the magazine wants to show us is transmited by her picture. I really loved that cover…

  59. Robbin says

    I can’t decide between January and August. I like January because the black and white makes the model look classic. and August because the model looks like she’s having fun at what she’s doing.

  60. micaela shambee says

    This was a really hard choice considering I love all the covers! But the winner for me is the October issue! I chose this one because it captivates what a magazine should look like (whether print or online). A gorgeous model, giving me eye contact on a blank background. When a magazine cover has those factors it draws me in! I’m not a fan of covers with scenic backgrounds. Those reminds me of editorials, which I think belong inside the mag (though the August issue was my second favorite). It also depends on the model. The model needs to sell the issue through her eyes, not just exist in the space. But overall, I love Plus Model Mag and everything it does for the Plus community!

  61. says

    So many great covers, hard to choose from Aug, Sept & Oct those are my fave so far.
    Great job on all covers and thanks for give such great plus size resources!

  62. Beth Young says

    I love the November cover! And to be totally honest it’s mostly because I would TOTALLY rock that outfit! I love black,gray/silver, animal prints, metallics, studs etc so I was drawn to that cover right off the bat–it’s very “edgy” and stands out. Love the look, and I tend to dress in a similar way when I go out because I’m 5′ 11″–I CAN’T make an “unobtrusive” entrance into a room, ppl always notice me so I figure why not give ‘em a show? LOL ;-P

  63. Kel says

    August 2010 was the best. I mean, who DIDN’T want those pants after seeing that cover? I recall reading the entire issue. Fun times!

  64. Jenna says

    I absolutely love the January cover. Whitney looks gorgeous as ever and it has a beautiful retro feel that I am just hypnotized by. My second favorite would be september, becuase its totally an outfit I would rock, in fact I think I own those tights!

  65. Sue Hankins says

    My vote goes to April 2010. The model featured is a true plus sized model. I think a lot of full figured women are not happy seeing size 12/14’s modeling plus sized fashions.

  66. says

    I have to vote for October! Put my personal love for Fluvia aside, and think of how she changes the notion that plus size models can only do commercial and catalog work. I love that she isn’t afraid to look sexy, fierce, and unsweetened for the camera. The shot almost looks dirty and sweaty, juxtaposed to a little sparkly black dress. I love the pose of December’s cover model and I love the fashion forward styling of the February issue. Great job on all of your issues!

  67. Terrijeann says

    I love the September 2010. This is high fashion with curves…………… Would love to see more like this! :-D

  68. Colleen says

    April, April, April! It’s a great full-length shot. While all the covers have lovely models, Ms. Borgella’s cover is the only one that I look at and think, “Hmmm, I could actually have a shot at modeling!”

  69. Kimberly says

    I LOVE the April issue cover! I feel that Joanne is a plus model that is more a “my size” plus model and that she is wearing fashions that I could see myself in. It was an inspiration to see a fuller model. She made me wanna go out and buy that Monif C dress because I could now see myself in it. I also Loved the fact that for your Love is a Battelfield spread that you also used a “fuller” model. And I must also state that in every issue I love the Head To Toe articles! I have received a lot of fashion inspiration from them. I love em! love ‘em! love ‘em!

  70. Veronica Martinez says

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the December 2010 Cover!!! Alexandra Elise is beatiful and the rocker vibe she is rocking is AMAZING! I love ANTM and Alexandra and Whitney Thomas are true inspirations for all plus size women. I look forward to seeing more issues… :)

  71. says

    I love the October 2010 cover! Fluvia is absolutely stunning! The photo itself is great too, the black and white photo is really beautiful.

  72. says

    I particularly fell in love with the August issue, not because it is my birthday month but because the photography skills are very professional. The lightening and contrast with the picture makes the cover pop and add a sort of confidence that I can relate to. The scenery is amazing especially since it is about to be the beginning of fall, and just in the hype of daylight’s savings time. The picture exudes a plethora of imaginative story lines and have endless interpretation, that’s what a cover picture should offer. I choose AUGUST.

  73. Crystal says

    First I would like to say all the Plus Model Magazine covers are beautiful.. Bravo.. I love April’s 2010 Cover. Becaues I can relate to her body type, style its comfortable and chic. I also love the articles (Music).. Thank you Plus Model Magazine Staff you guys are my inspiration..

  74. Karina Rua says

    I love august. She looks sexy and prud of her real woman’s curves. Love the background too.

  75. says

    January and March covers… in terms that this is a PLUS MODEL Magazine…kept my attention as to what I love about being Plus-sized. These were my top 2 picks that inspired me. It’s an industry representation that can send a message and still PULL in ALL different sized models, designers, advertisers, etc. that may consider how HOT & Fashion Forward using plus models can be, as well as being commercial, too. If I must choose a favorite…personal choice is March.

  76. Marcy says

    For me, I have to echo what others have said regarding the April 2010 cover. My fave hands down! You rarely see a model that represents the norm plus size shape (14 and up) and it’s nice to see that on a magazine cover. Not taking away from the others because they’re all beautiful. But I identify more with the model from the April 2010 cover.

  77. Chante Francis-Brown says

    I feel that April and September are my favs because I remember when I was going to the casting for Monique’s Fat Chance Joanne (April’s Cover Model) was there and her voice blew me away. I got the chance to meet her yrs later at the EVO fashion show 2010 and she is so sweet. I love the September cover because that SCREAMS me style. To be honest all the covers are the best. Its nice to see that fashion is not just sizes -0-2. As a plus size woman; I’m happy to see people that i can relate to in a magazine. Thanks PLUS Magazine.

  78. Tre says

    I love the September issue. I love the blue. I love the model. She is very unique looking and has sweet face. It was very hard to decide becasue I love so many other covers. Happy Holidays!

  79. Kim Bailey says

    January because the model is so lovely with her shiny black hair with the satin top and what looks like a sexy black nightie I would kill for. 100% beautiful!!!!

  80. Anika Townsend says

    September was very high fashion and gorgeous, but i will vote for April because she is more of a real plus sized woman.. Most American women are plus sized and want to see a real woman, wearing something that we could actually wear and look nice in, not just barely thick women with clothes that conceal their curves..

  81. Sabrina Ashley says

    When I see Chloe Marshall in March 2010…I feel like a young invincible diva! As plus size young lady, yes at times I want to feel like a Greek Goddess, yet there are times when I just am such a tomboy and want to showcase that! Out off all the covers, I promise you March 2010 is the dead ringer; it is the only one that made me stop and go “my damn, that girl is hott and she makes me feel hot as well!”

  82. Sue says

    I am a former model (when I was thin) from the 80’s and my portfolio is 90% B&W, so I like the January issue. Plus, it’s simple, and in a duaghter-way, resembles my old photos! Ha!
    Damn! You guys are making me want to subscribe!

  83. Lesley Hamilton says

    My favorite, for me is May 2010, with beautiful, Jordan Tesfay. The cover its self, is very luring. This cover inspires me, and motivates me. I have to read , and find out what is inside of this magazine.
    To see Jordan, a women, who looks like me, curvy like me, same color eyes, same color hair, same skin tone, on a cover, of a magazine….WOW! very inspiring!

  84. says

    My favorite would have to be the January 2010 issue, with Whitney. It looks like she was caught in a moment, as opposed to posing. It’s simple & beautiful.

  85. Cortinea says

    These were very hard to choose from, but the April cover is my favorite. I like this cover because for me the model is giving the impression that some type of music or something pertaining to music is actually given somewhere in the issue of the magazine. (Yeah the Music Issue)

  86. Michelle Renee says

    My vote is for the sexy denise on August’s cover. she has the killer curves, and I love the styling, inez’s photography, and the setting. I also like to see full body, head to toe covers. Hot model, hot cover, and an all around great denim issue!

  87. Jessie says

    Love August 2010! She has great curves and a fab pose. I love that it shows off how sexy curves can be.

  88. Rhea says

    I love the February Cover!.

    Model – Great Outfit, great color scheme and I love the lace mask thing. Perfect for the V-day emphasis!

    Cover Design: Complimentary color schemes. Good use of whitespace. Good use of fonts and typefaces. I like that there a little bit of play with the red and the serif on the top two items, but kept the rest sans serif. Plus the title is readable, but doesn’t detract from the model or the overall layout

    My favorite is the April 2010 cover. I love how natural this cover is and shows a woman with true curves. This cover inspires me that I can be here one day!!!

  90. Whitney Johnson says

    The cover I like the most is the September issue, the cover is coordinated, and is not to plain has enough to catch your eye without getting you confused.

  91. Lela says

    My favorite is the April issue because the model is curvy like me and even though she doesn’t have on all thebling, she looks classy, comfortable and beautiful;) all of the things I love.

  92. Margery Jones says

    I am torn between January; she is simply elegant. Preparing for a night out. December is just riveting, so getting ready to get out and get loose and Celebrate the Holidays! She is just filled with that let’s party mode and she is really workin that outfit! Now that is Artistry! Beauty comes in all Sizes! You don’t have to look anorexic to be HAUTE!

  93. Curtis W. says

    For me, the August 2010 issue is it. The model looks like she’s ready to blow-up Los Angeles with her killer sensuality.

  94. Robin g. says

    I really had a hard time picking. All. The covers have beautiful models. I have to pick june 2010 and the reason is u don’t see plus size cover models in swimsuits it is about loving your body type inside n outside.

  95. Miss Nina says

    September 2010’s cover photo was my favorite. Stylish and sleek! Love the model’s posing and the choice of outfit was right on point.

  96. Maguy Augustin says

    I love the September cover because it’s sooo hip and trendy. The blue dress in that picture is hot! I love the way the title “PLUS” (in blue) compliments the color of the dress. I love the fierce makeup of the model, especially her eyes. This cover displays “fierce attitude”. It so cool how you can change the look of a cocktail dress to a “funky rocker chic” look. This is my fav cover because I dress like that…funky, trendy, fierce, and cool.

  97. Alicia says

    My favorite issue was the love your body issue from october. Very informative and makes me embrace my plus size.

  98. Crystal says

    Hey ladies, I would say my top three picks are January, February, and November. They’re all extremely fabulous. To narrow it down I definitely like November 2010 the best. The mood of the cover is fierce and sexy and the outfit is awesome. I’d definitely rock that! It’s fabulous from head to toe. :) The outfit is hip and youthful and the pattern of the dress really would hide those extra pounds. (Speaking from experience.lol) Well, thanks for your time. Enjoy the holidays

    I had to decide between January & May, but May is my favorite.

    I like January’s cover immediately because it’s an elegantly and absolutely beautifully shot black & white photo that looks totally candid. A really beautiful shot!!!!!

    The reason May is my favorite is because to begin with, this cover simply just holds it’s own when (if) compared to Vogue, Elle, or any other highly profiled fashion magazine. In addition, Ms. Tesfay portrays a great natural confidence without looking like she’s modeling. That makes a difference to the average plus size woman that is not a model. It sends the message that they can look good too. Her skin tone is vibrant and her makeup perfectly compliments that. Lastly, with her totally filling up the cover (which seals the deal for me), it can’t help being my favorite cover. GREAT job!!!!!

    Is it possible to purchase a 16 x 24 of the January & May covers?

    Well hello everyone!!! this id my first time on here!!! So i wanna put in my comment!!! I think that I will have to say that August had definitely Rocked it the best!!!! I think useing the skyline in the back with the buildings and that is a beautiful outlook, and the model you uesed well she was great, she had long legs that just added to the background, and just her whole body just matched the whole background!!!!! and all the other ones to me just seamed liked you worked too hard to get the right one and this one kinda looks like it was an well lets try this and well see and it worked, but the other ones are just way over done to me!!!! I mean I had trouble between Jan and Aug, but all and all I think that Aug comes out and pops at you more!!!

    Well, thanks for your time and Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!

    Im gonna have to say the September issue stole the show! The rugged backgroud with the contemporary grunge look was awesome. I also like how the grey boots brought some calm into the photo from that blue that just stands out and speaks “FIERCE!”

  102. Kimberly A. Brazil says

    I have to say it was tough to pick one that really caught my eye, but I just loved the January cover – the black and white photography is amazing, and she looks very comfortable in that photo. I like to see women who not only have that “Plus Size Pin Up” look that I adore, but also ones who show confidence! :-) I would buy what she was wearing in that photo in a hot minute! I was a very petite model in the 80s and 90s, and due to a disability, I am now a Plus Size Babe, and am very happy with my new curves – and so is my English boyfriend! ;-) Keep up the good work, Plus Magazine – you guys ROCK!!

  103. Anna D. says

    I like the May 2010 cover the best, because it’s in your face without being TOO in your face. The model is just gorgeous and her earrings really make the cover page pop!

  104. Carla says

    My favorite is January. I love the black and white glamour, and her hair and makeup are so pretty!!! She inspires me to want to wear pretty clothes and go out for a night on the town.

  105. says

    Actually all the Ladies are beautiful! The one I like the most is the September issue with Sarah Flack. I love the confidence she shows and overall it’s beautiful. Also I love the boots she has on (if I may add) :)

  106. Genelle says

    FLUVIA! FlUVIA! FLUVIA! She’s amazing……her best quality to me is her ease of crossover from the Brazilian market to the US market…….. She’s an international sensation and gets my vote!

  107. says

    I’m totally in love with the January and September covers!! I think the January one takes the cake though. So gorgeous, and so simple! :D

    Lovely work! :D

    Is tough to pick one they all my favorites but my top is September 2010 because is trendy and you can see her beautiful curves, is something that i can wear without having to hide my body. So i vote for September.

  109. Melissa B says

    Its really hard for me to chose my favorite cover since there are 2 that I really love! But I would have to say that my favorite would have to be August with Denise Bidot :)

  110. says

    I may be bias because I am a jewelry designer & the jewelry caught my eye first – the February cover is my favorite. The cover is clean, you can look at the model and not get distracted by the titles/wording on the cover. The model is very sexy & IS a plus size model. Good choice of outfit, jewelry, makeup, hairstyle & pose. I like the red lipstick representing Valentines & it not being overwhelming, as well as the lace across her face – very sexy.

    Thank you everyone for voting. Your comments will help us to determine the type of covers you are looking for as well as the models. It was a very tight race between the August, January and April covers.

    We did notice, you seem to like the curvier models, and these are few and far between on the professional level. It’s up to you to tell the companies you are buying from that you want to see these types of models.

    If the clothing companies do not ask for them, the agencies will not sign them, and in turn, we are not able to work with them either.

    Your voice DOES matter!

    Thanks again for giving us your feedback. Congrats to Joan Wren!

    I like all covers because it shows a variety of fashion in plus women they all symbolize beauty.style.glamour etc

  113. Brandy says

    Dear Madeline,

    I LOVED August issue!!! The city life landscape is best when interested in fashion. I loved her jeans and fashionable top….thats the style I love to rock! I do have to say it is more incouraging to see curvier model representing us plus size women and what we really look like. This cover reminded me of Phoenix where I am from, and I am inspired from this shot for myself in plus size modeling;) !

    Sincerely,

    Brandy

  115. Mytmy says
