Well, it’s a wind down to the weekend, so let’s take a coffee break, and have a bit of chat.
In today’s soceity, we are all made to believe that super Boney skinny is the way to go. Yes it healthier (coffs) and there are lots and lots of benefits, but sometimes I wonder, who of those skinny Boney models, that we are bombarded with every day, are truly deeply happy?
Who said Big Beautiful Women can’t be happy too? Even though society tries to push them out, the BBW’s have a remarkable tendency to bounce back, and when they do, they come back 10 times harder and even more driven to prove people wrong.
Right, so where is this coming from? Well, a wee while ago, I had the pleasure of shooting a BBW. My goodness was I ever so impressed.
Meet Jorina. She is a 28yo Grade 1 teacher.
She is confident, beautiful, fashionable. She takes care of herself, she has manicured nails, beautiful skin and the most amazing hair. To be honest, she takes better care of herself thank most skinny Boney people I’ve seen. The best of all, as beautiful as she is on the outside, she has the same beautiful properties in her heart. She is friendly, laughs alot and her confidence shines through her smile.
Here are a few International Plus Size models:
1. Kate Dillon
Kate Dillon used to be thin and had problems with anorexia. Once she beat anorexia she quickly gained a lot of weight going from a size 6 to a size 14. Her initial career was as a thin model with a signed contract for Elite NYC. This career didn’t do so well but after she gained weight and became a plus size she has been more successful and happier with herself. She has made it to the cover and been the spotlight of many editorial magazines such as Vogue magazine and MODE magazine
Maggie Brown’s big break as a Plus Size model came when she won Tyra Bank’s Thick and Sexy Top Model Contest that appeared on the Tyra Banks Show in 2006. Not only did she win the title but she also landed a contract with Wilhelmina Models and a photo shoot with bombshell Magazine. She has had many features with Bombshell magazine, Plus Model Magazine, Igigi Model of the Month and more.
