While the fashion industry is ruled by the assumption that you need to be skinny to be considered beautiful, these five women are proving otherwise.
Plus-size fashion label Simply Be enlisted a handful of plus-size fashion bloggers to model the clothes offered in the retailer's Golden Renaissance Christmas collection. The five stylish models in the photo spread are Rosie from A Rose Like This, Rachel from A Dress Is for Life, Allie from Inside Allie's World, Nancy from Sugar, Darling? and Betty from Pamper and Curves.
It's refreshing to see such voluptuous women modeling clothes that are stylish and trendy. Even more groundbreaking is the fact that none of the photos are photoshopped, allowing each girl's natural beauty and confidence to shine.
"We are often asked to show our clothes on a wider range of model sizes and this was the perfect opportunity," said the company's PR and Social Media Manager Charlotte Bleasdale. "We have not photo-shopped them in any way -- the girls are gorgeous and perfect just as they are!"
Items in the affordable collection are available in US sizes 10 to 28, and include cocktail dresses, tops, pants and outerwear, as well as accessories such as shoes, belts and handbags.
With limited choices for women with larger physiques, it's great to see a store selling clothes that a woman of any size would want to wear!
