Here at PLUS Model Magazine, the topic of size diversity is one that we are very passionate about. We strive to continue to keep this important conversation going, as we have been for the last few years.
Since Eloquii unveiled their latest size 26/28 lookbook featuring size-28 customer Emmicia Bracey, we can’t stop thinking about how this should be the norm, when it comes to featuring non-professional models in fashion campaigns.
Size diversity isn’t about showing a size 8, a size 14 and a size 18. Let’s include women above a size 18 and an array of different body shapes, heights and silhouettes.
Catherines recently launched a huge denim campaign, featuring bloggers of different shapes, sizes and heights. Quite a few of them were over a size 22, such as myself, Reah Norman, Kellie Brown, Jessica Kane and Amanda Alison.
Retailers and brands! This is a call to action to you. It’s more than just looking at a blogger’s numbers or size when choosing one to feature as a brand ambassador or face for your next campaign. It’s thoughtfully choosing a blogger with style and confidence that your customers can identify with.
Not every plus size woman has an hourglass shape, over 5’9″ tall or a flat tummy.
With that said, here’s our wish list of 10 bloggers who are all over a size 22, have different body shapes and heights and have tons of style and confidence… All worthy of being front and center in a major fashion campaign.
