WAIST NOT, WANT NOT!

So with my luscious curves looking fuller than ever I thought why hide them away as winter draws closer, when I can slipped them into something a little more sexier. And whats more sexier than a satin, steel boned corset. I came across these gorgeous corsets from truecorset.com, where sizing goes up to a brilliant 30, which is 42″ round the waist. Hello, Dita Von Teese here I come!

I cant decide which one I love the most, whether it be this stunning purple corset with black lace overlay or even this cheeky red number which would look perfect with some black french knickers. As you’d guess I like to flaunt my curves and my boyfriend certainly wont mind when I turn up in these. Christmas, my fellow glamouplus’s has come early for him.

It was back in 2008 when Chloe Marshall became the first plus size model to enter Miss Britain, after winning Miss Surrey. Chloe was pipped to the post, but the publicity that it drew landed her her first modelling contract and even her first film role. Chloe is now set to enter Miss Natural Curves 2010 and is concentrating on promoting her fuller figure to women and girls across the globe.

Doesn’t she look stunning in these pictures from her facebook fan page, cementing what  us girls already knew, that big is better!

Miss Natural Curves 2010 is specially aimed at the more curvacious girls, with the winner being given an automatic place into next years Miss Britain competition.

Chloe who is fully supporting the competition says ” I am really excited to be supporting a heat that will reassure girls out there that you do not have to be tall and skinny to be considered beautiful.”

PLUS SIZE MAKES AN IMPACT

Plus size models have made a big impact on this years fashion week when designer Mark Fast decided to use ‘plus size’ models for his runway show.

When I say plus size girls now realise that I’m taking in fashion terms. The models were a tiny UK size 14 but were blasted with critism to steer away from the unhealthy size 0 frame that has captured fashion week in recent years.

Both the designers creative director and his stylist walked out over the row, leaving the fashion word yet again talking about the subject of size on the runway.

These girls looked healthy and filled out the knitted designs perfectly, enabling the everyday woman to relate to the clothes, most times extremley hard when hung on a skeleton. When models are actually dying off the runway, maybe it’s time to reasses fashions obsession with skinniness.

INTERVIEW WITH CRYSTAL RENN

The ‘face’ of Evans has gone against the trend of super size zero models and has carved out a career from her size 16 figure. Crystal was once a tiny 7 stone when agents pressured her to loose even more from her already miniscule frame.

Her curves have led her to sashaying down the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier and D&G.

From this Celebs on Sunday magazine, Crystal talks about her rise to fame and those famous curves…

I think the fashion industry focuses too much attention on extremes…Models are either tiny or they’re plus sized, but what about all the people in the middle? Even celebrities are skinny or fat. I think models should be all shapes, heights and colours, that way all women would be able to relate to them.

Curves emphasise your femininity…Men prefer something to grab hold to. Curves make you think of health and vitality, and I think that’s really attractive. Size 0 doesn’t scream health!

Clothes can transform your mood…I love sequins, they always make me feel happy. I’ve got a chequered sequined top and it makes everything I wear with it look great.

I stay in shape by eating healthy…I love organic food and I think its important to listen to your body. If you’re craving something, it’s usually because your body needs it. I love eggs, they have always given me loads of energy. If I’ve been on a long flight and I have to go straight to work, I have some eggs and suddenly I’m in a good mood.

If someone was thinking about becoming a model…I would tell them to be themselves. Don’t look in magazines and think you have to look like all the other girls because that’s what I did. If your true to yourself that’s what will set you apart from the rest. The most important thing about modelling is individuality.”

LETS GO SHOPPING!

With limited shops on the highstreet stocking anything over a size 14, I thought I’d have a look at what the net has to offer. You see, I’m a bit of a online shopperholic, it could be classed as laziness, but I’m a sucker for getting the clothes delivered fresh to my door where I can try them on in the comfort of my own home and give my friends a personal fashion show.

So I started with Marisota, after seeing numerous adverts playing through my daily dose of television. It stocks from a size 12 right through to 32, with shoes designed up to a size 9! Im loving this bird print dress with elasticated underbust. It’s £55 but I could see me wearing this both day and night.

Secondly, with autumn soon approaching it’s time I thought about investing in a winter coat. My next stop was Simplybe and I found this gorgeous black military coat for £80.00, sizing up to a 30.
