11/03/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 4. November 2013 16:45


I read an article in the October issue of Marie Claire magazine that I applaud called “Big Girl in a Skinny World”, by Ashley Falcon.

She addresses the issues that plus-size women have finding well fitting, plus-size clothes.  The reality is that a plus-size woman’s body is proportioned differently than a thin-build, size 2 model.  The size 2 model has no curves!  You just can’t add inches of fabric everywhere to a garment and have it be flattering for a typical size 16 body!

Ms. Falcon commends DKNY jeans for addressing these style/design issues.  DKNY made changes in their fabrics and cuts which make them more flattering on a plus-size woman. I believe these same issues are true for large-size men as well.  It’s about time these problems are being addressed.

Women and men of all sizes want to feel stylish, handsome or pretty, and even sexy!  Let’s keep it up designers!
