Looking at these two photos is a statement of its own. The black strappy ensemble is so sexy and she looks fierce in it. (Model: Linda Cobbina) The white strappy bathing suit look is conservative but sexy, its makes me want to find out how to purchase it. These are definitely some curvy inspirational looks and these ladies look awesome. Poise, sexy, and sassy!
For any reason “YOU” cannot picture your curvy bottom in one of these ensembles then your sexy inner glam curviness fierceness is dim. You don’t have to be in love with these looks but imagine the sexiness and then put your body in it. Case Closed.
I was looking at the highlights from New York Fashion Week and enjoyed viewing the plus size models with shapes similar to mines walking down the runway. Then I came across a clip about how our top modeling agencies client needs are shifting to more curvier woman. One of latest faces attempting to conqueror the plus size modeling market is Kamie Crawford, 2010 Teen USA. I was stunned that she would have be label as plus size looking back at her in 2010. Well check out Ms. Kamie Crawford at age 20 prepping to be the next top plus size model. I have a feeling she is going to rock it!
Coming off vacation, I felt even more excited about where I am in my skin. This picture is my inspiration. Curvy, plus size, and confident! If you missing one of these three, this pose will help you refuel your thoughts. By providing clarity and reminding you that beauty is not just the outside but the inside, too.
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.
Happy Monday! Today, I just want to give a homage to the” GLAMCURVY” divas who either walk the runways or give us the best print looks ever and represent GLAM. Main stream fashion seems to only publicize the “norm”. However, today I want to give you a glimpse into the fiercest runway looks and pics. By the way, they are so FAB.

This is interesting. You may love the Top 10 picks or question them. I was curious to find out the TOP 1o glamcurvy models in the industry today. I have to admit I was excited to find out. However, some would question whether these models are “true” plus size. Well we all know the fashion industry can be slighted by reality. I was bothered by a few of the models that were selected.
