Is it possible, plus size and fit?

Collage2

Okay, its time. I want to be plus but fit. A solid 9/10. No stretch. Today, I am a 12/14 stretch. Love it! Not mad at it at all. But I would love to be toned.  Also, I have to remember I am not in my 20’s to compete with the status quo. Today, I searched for some plus size fit looks I love to give me a little more motivation. <MY FIT VISIONBOARD>

It’s time for GlamCurvy T to change to GlamCurvy “FIT” T!

Happy Friday!

Curvy 1950 meets 2013

Collage1

When I saw this 1950’s photo labeled “plus size” I had a question mark appear in my thoughts. Plus size? NOT!

Today, anything curvy, usually size 9/10 and up is considered out of the “norm” and gets tagged as plus size. I guess it was no different in the 1950’s either. Looking at this picture,  in 1950 we were just as fierce then as we are now.

It amazing, how our glam and curve appeal looks the same with a modern twist.

Curvy divas we ” got history?”  Love it.

Curvy Feminism

Today,  I was inspired by this picture.  Not only does it represents the ideal of “GlamCurvy” but identifies curvy feminism. It makes me embrace more of who I am and not just what others can dictate. The GlamCurvy movement are MODELS who march to the curvy beat.

In celebration of “Curvy Feminism” we toast to”Curves are Beautiful”! And by the way, this GlamCurvy Diva is so FIERCE!
