Introducing Our Real Woman / Real Model Series: PMM Readers Featured in August 2014 Issue

Here at PMM, we believe beauty knows no size and we are excited to announce our Real Woman/Real Model Series. We are kicking off this series in our August 2014 issue, which is all about DENIM.

We held a real model casting search in early July, seeking women who didn’t have to be professional models and wore sizes 18 – 24 in denim jeans and 5’3 to 5’11 in height.

After viewing several submissions, we chose 5 beautiful women, who range in size from a 14 to a 24, to be featured in an exclusive fashion editorial that will be in the August 2014 issue, launching online on Friday, August 1.

Plus size fashion retailers featured in the editorial are Fashion to Figure, Lane Bryant, Avenue and Forever 21. The real woman models were styled by our Shopping & Style Editor Alissa Wilson and photographed by Luke Jones of Lucas Pictures.

Our real woman models Stephanie, Michele, Veronica, Kellie and Shaina had a blast during the shoot and we can’t wait to share with our readers. So we wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes peek at the shoot:
