Proud Curves

Talk about domino effect! The plus size editorial  has morphed into a kind of mexican wave  and shows no sign of abating. This shoot in the March issue of Pride magazine is the latest unskinny shoot to hit the newstands and model, Natalie, looks stunning. I only wish I could get my makeup that flawless and hair that perfect. Hawt!

    Great photo shoot. But man oh man do I wish they would stop calling curvy/plus/fat/non-model-sized women “real” women. It’s such an insult to our thinner sisters. Still, it’s a nice spread. Are there clothing credits? I could really use that striped bodysuiit!

      Yeh that irks me too, as though slimmer women aren’t really women at all.:-/

      The stripey body is from American Apparel. I can’t seem to access the AA website to post a link.

  4. She looks fantastic – and I agree the striped body pic is fab.

      Great to see fashion using real women. You can’t deny she looks fabulous and is above and beyond the likes of Kate Moss, who are always stick thin and look drawn out.

      I hope to see plenty more photos like these.

  6. […] Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes Too have images from a feature in Pride magazine on a “real size” pin-up. I’m not sure how I feel about all these various labels, but real size is an odd one. Curvy works for me. […]

    Lovely pics. I have seen similar bodystockings striped and solid colour in Sainsburys. I remember them from first time round in the 90s they are flattering and comfortable.

    That model is absolutely stunning! That third picture is incredible. And you’re right, her makeup/hair is totally flawless.

    A trend is sprouting and I am nothing but ecstatic!
    Thanks for the great post,

    She looks absolutely stunning and sexy too! It’s great that curves are getting more coverage in print mags. Let’s hope this becomes a regular thing, not just a trend and exception.
