Editor’s note: The term “real women” used in this article is meant to describe women who are unsigned non-professional models who are PMM readers. In our opinion, ALL women are real, no matter what your size, shape, professional or background.
We announced last month that we were partnering with plus size fashion retailer Always For Me for a Real Women/Real Adventure photoshoot, featuring their stylish and flattering swimwear.
We asked readers to submit their photos and information for a chance to be one of our real women models in this exciting editorial. We wanted to feature confident women of all different shapes and sizes, who were not professional models. Five lucky readers were chosen — among them was a recent college graduate with a degree in physics, an aspiring criminal psychologist, an artist, and an opera singer.
We are so excited to share this editorial with all of our readers because all of our Real Women / Real Models editorials are about celebrating plus size women and sending the message that you can be confident and beautiful at any size.
Stay tuned for our April 2015 issue where we will have our next Real Women / Real Models series; this time with plus size fashion retailer Sydney’s Closet, dedicated to plus size brides wearing their dream dress.
