What makes the perfect Ashley Stewart woman? She is bold, stylish, brave, adventurous, and powerful. She lives by her own rules, loves her curves, and looks impeccable doing so. That’s why PLUS Model Magazine (PMM), the #1 plus size fashion and beauty magazine/blog, has partnered with leading plus size global fashion brand Ashley Stewart for its Woman of Style photo spread featuring Top Plus Bloggers, who are all doing it their way. Five bloggers were invited to participate in a #IAMASHLEY styling challenge, each chosen for her sense of style, confidence, and long-time love of the Ashley Stewart brand. Each blogger was then able to select any Ashley Stewart outfit, put her own unique twist on it, participate in a NYC photoshoot, and show off her take on curvy spring fashion must-haves in an editorial spread in PLUS Model Magazine’s March 2015 issue.

“I have always referred to Ashley Stewart as ‘The People’s Brand,’ their passion for the plus-sized woman has always been clear. Now seeing them come into their own is a true delight and I’m excited for PMM to partner with a leading brand that is not afraid to show some curves,” says Plus Model Magazine editor-in-chief Madeline Jones.

“Over the past twenty-four years, Ashley Stewart forged lasting, personal relationships with its customers in neighborhood shops across the country. Recent innovations in digital have allowed us and her loyal followers to introduce her to friends in new neighborhoods and new countries heretofore unimaginable. Despite this, our goal is to stay true to our mission of getting to know each and every one of our customers on an individual level. We hope you enjoy the individualism of each of these trend-setting women as much as we do,” says Executive Chairman and CEO James Rhee.

The following bloggers showcased their curves and voluptuous personalities in the March issue of PLUS Model Magazine:

Allison McGevna, Stylist/Fox News Producer/Blogger, www.insidealliesworld.com
Allie has been an Ashley Stewart fan since she was a teenager. In fact, her very first major modeling campaign was with the brand, so it holds a special spot in her heart.
Fashion Tip: “Play with it, make it your own. Taking the sexy aspect and giving it an edge, don’t be so serious.”

Jezra Matthews, Model and Blogger, jezram.com
Jezra first fell in love with Ashley Stewart on Valentine’s Day. “I saw a beautiful red blazer,” she recalls, “I went in to try it on and it fit my body perfectly. It just complimented me so well.” She’s been in love with the brand ever since.
Fashion Tip: “Be Fun. Be Comfortable. Be You!”

Essie Golden, Blogger – EssieGolden.com
There weren’t a lot of choices for plus-sized women in Orlando, but Essie was determined to find great outfits (especially for church) – Ashley Stewart spoke to her and she’s been a fan ever since.
Fashion Tip: “Edge it up! Wear high heels, or even sneakers!”

Kelly Augustine, Blogger, kellyaugustine.com
“I always shopped along 125th street in Manhattan and happened to walk by,” recalls Kelly, “I saw a leather skirt in the window and that was it! I kept going back and buying more and more.”
Fashion Tip: “Use only one piece as your drama piece. Let it have its moment!”

Chante Burkett, Blogger, everythingcurvyandchic.com
Chante discovered Ashley Stewart three years ago in a local mall after moving to the tri-state area, and has since developed quite the love affair with Ashley Stewart jeans.
Fashion Tip: “Always have proper undergarments and always think about where you are going so you can wear the proper shoes!”

Throughout March, Ashley Stewart will be highlighting these bloggers and its customers wearing spring trends with the #IAMASHLEY hashtag.

SwimStar All Stars Partnership With Renowned Plus-size Model and Swimsuits For All Ambassador, Denise Bidot

Inclusive Swimwear Brand Collaborates with Prominent Plus-Size Model Denise Bidot to Empower Aspiring Models

Swimsuits For All, a pioneer in inclusive swimwear, proudly introduces its inaugural SwimStar All Stars campaign in partnership with renowned plus-size model and Swimsuits For All ambassador, Denise Bidot. This collaboration marks a significant milestone, nearly a decade following Denise’s groundbreaking “Beach Body, Not Sorry” campaign with Swimsuits For All in 2015, which showcased unretouched imagery aimed at promoting unapologetic confidence.

Denise Bidot and Swimsuits For All have jointly unveiled the SwimStar All Stars nationwide search, dedicated to discovering emerging talent in the realm of swimsuit modeling. Encouraging aspiring models to share their personal narratives, the initiative aims to inspire women of all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes. Following a rigorous selection process, Brittany Wilborn, Camryn Henry, and Sharon Clawson emerged as the chosen winners. In January 2024, these models embarked on a transformative journey to Harbour Island, where they had the unparalleled opportunity to shoot alongside Denise under the expert direction of internationally acclaimed photographer and director, Ben Watts.

Reflecting on the initiative, Denise Bidot remarked, “This was a truly exceptional opportunity to celebrate the diversity of plus-size models and cultivate an atmosphere of support, empowerment, and knowledge sharing. The camaraderie on set was palpable, and I am deeply honored to impart the wisdom and insights I’ve garnered throughout my career. Opportunities like these are scarce for plus-size models in the industry, and it has been a privilege to collaborate with the exceptional team at Swimsuits for All to bring this campaign to fruition.”

The models showcased the latest swimwear offerings from the Swimsuits for All 2024 collection, featuring innovative designs tailored to meet the diverse needs of women, including:

Feel-good Fits: Addressing common concerns such as tummy bulges and fit issues, Swimsuits for All offers a range of fits designed to instill confidence and comfort in every body. Incorporating features like Power Mesh for a smooth, flattering silhouette, and adjustable straps for customizable support, the collection caters to various body types.

Bold Prints & Colors for Summer: The summer swimwear collection boasts vibrant colors and captivating prints, injecting excitement and personality into beach and poolside attire. From vivid neon hues to tropical motifs, the collection encourages self-expression and style experimentation.

Liquid Shine: Introducing Liquid Shine, a striking swim fabrication characterized by a glossy, liquid-like finish, adding an edgy allure to beachwear. Available in multiple silhouettes, including bikinis, Liquid Shine ensures you stand out with confidence.

Bikinis that Suit You Best: The Mix & Match Bikini collection offers a personalized approach to swimwear, allowing individuals to mix and match colors and silhouettes for a bespoke look tailored to their preferences.

Beyond showcasing inclusive swimwear designs, the SwimStar All Stars campaign embodies a celebration of women uplifting one another in an industry often marked by competitiveness. Throughout the week-long shoot, models engaged in one-on-one sessions with Denise, fostering meaningful dialogue about the evolving representation of plus-size bodies in swim and fashion.

Jordan Hauser, Senior Director of E-Commerce & Marketing, expressed, “This campaign transcends conventional notions of body positivity and representation in the swim and fashion industries. It is a testament to the power of storytelling and authenticity in reflecting the diverse experiences of our customer base. We are committed to fostering a movement where women find strength in unity, and we are thrilled to embark on this journey alongside Denise Bidot, one of the industry’s foremost advocates for inclusivity.”

The summer 2024 swimwear collection is now available. For further details about Swimsuits For All and the SwimStar All Stars campaign, please visit www.swimsuitsforall.com.
