Fashion Friday-Full Figured Fashion

| Friday, August 24, 2012

Let's face it, not all of us are the ideal 'Catwalk model measurements'
 5'9" with 22" waist, 33" hips and 32" bust

And most of us will never be-a lot of us never want to be-for we enjoy shakin' what our Mama's, grandmama's, and great grandmama's gave us!
There is nothing more beautiful than a real woman-curves and all-exuding confidence, loving her body and being comfortable in her own skin

Italian fashion designers worked together with the Italian government in 2006 to ban size 0 models and enforce a minimum BMI (body mass index) of 18
"Plus size" models (sizes 14-16) were to be introduced into shows and models were not to be younger than 16.
This caused quite the stir as 'beauty' has been greatly disorted by propaganda; 
"You must be young and skinny to be beautiful"
Eating disorders are rampant-holding a scary first place in mortality when compared to any other mental illness- and because of this disortion beautiful girls and woman are falling victim just to try to get a taste of "beauty"

That brings us to today's Fashion Friday post
We would like to honour full figured beauties who aren't shy to show off thier curves giving others the confidence to do the same!

Designer Rachel Pally created "White Label"
Designs for full figured ladies, showcased at Full Figured fashion week
