We previously wrote about the iconic advertisement from lingerie line, Curvy Kate, that featured women of all different races, genders, and sexual orientations because it showed that women regardless of size can be sexy. And hello, so much diversity! Unfortunately, it has proved to be too much for some Facebook users, as multiple images were […]

Fit is often the one thing that deters curvy women from buying things online and even in stores. Just because it looks good on the model, doesn’t mean it’s going to hug you the same. It can really be one of the most frustrating things about buying clothes because it’s supposed to be fun, but […]

First there was Zach Miko, and now Ben Whit. The curve male model sector is slowly growing, and we’re excited. And now that IMG has expanded its ‘Brawn’ board to include men larger than sample sized runway models, they’re continuously finding new males to represent the curve community and find a place in the fashion […]

A judge told a man who had Nazi-related tattoos on his head, face and neck that he had to cover them up with makeup before his trial. Extreme Makeover Las Vegas?

I don’t know why #NoFilter is even a thing. Recently, actress Laverne Cox was accused of getting a nose job. The truth? She explained it all with an Instagram post. For everyone who thinks I had a nose job, the surgeon is snapchat. The first photo has #nofilter. The second has the #snapchat beauty filter. […]

Coco Rocha recently took her place in modeling to the next level, and is now Brand Director and a major stakeholder in Nomad Mgmt Modeling Agency. It’s a smart move for Coco, as Nomad Mgmt founder, Damon Rutland was the one who discovered her way back when she was only fourteen years old. According to WWD, Coco’s role […]

If you’re into runway fashion, buying consignment is one of the best ways to get some designers goods for less. But often times, since it’s a consignment piece, there’s only one of the item, and it’s basically hit or miss to even find anything that’s not runway sample-sized. Enter new site, Resell XL, the first […]

As I was looking at the hashtag #WeWearWhatWeWant, I realized a lot of the comments were on the surface saying positive things, but adding in a bit of a jab that they were tired of ‘all this body image talk.’ This only made me post more about, and we’re hoping you feel the same way and […]

We received a message from one of our followers, Krisi Kaz, who was pretty upset about a video where a small-minded feminist-hater named Nate decided to explain to the world why “fat acceptance,” is bad for society. To be fair, he thought he did a pretty great job. We hate to give him video views, […]

Body image and wellness is different for everyone. Sisters Mara Schiavocampo and Pia Schiavo-Campo are straight up goals in proving that wellness is an overall balance, and we could not be more impressed. It was so amazing being on @goodmorningamerica this morning with my sister @maracamp and also with @readytostare and @essiegolden. We talked body […]
