5 Plus Size Models to Follow and Get Inspired
One of the achievements of new generations is the redemption of authenticity in beauty stereotypes, leaving aside those traditional, but oh-so-negative, standards that some garments wouldn’t look good on curvy girls, keeping them away from fashion trends. This time the fashion industry did not establish the trend, it was more than the social statement of acceptance and inclusion made it surrender. Even though haute couture designers argue the complexity of their pieces in bigger sizes. Brands see the chance to meet the demands and have started to create affordable and striking collections for plus size girls.
Designing clothes that allow curvy and full figured women to see their bodies represented in a high fashion context is a powerful statement. Nowadays, not only internationally renowned models or celebrities inspire other women, but also women with a great sense of style that promote self-love and positive body image message through social media. With every picture they post, these women around the world feel confident enough to wear a fashion piece knowing their value is not related to their size.
