Be Curvy, Be stylish – Plus is a plus!

Tired of looking at those flat chested reed thin size zero models, this article is for women who are bold enough to flaunt their curves and are not afraid to show that plus is more.

Let’s be realistic- none of the real world women look like the models that until recently adorned the pages of fashion magazines(unless they were severely anemic or fatigued). The fashion tips too catered to ladies aspiring to become a supermodel and never to young girls who just wanted to look better.

But now more and more fashion giants are realizing the true potential of us curvy women and finally their pages (atleast some of them) are beginning to portray curvy, voluptuous women who emote so much better.

More and more brands are finally beginning to make clothes for those of us who actually have flesh; and now we too can wear designer wear instead of just paper bags and gunny sacks. Living in India, a country which has equally curvy women as much as skinny ones, it is always hard to find the right fitting clothes.

Leading models like Tess Holiday and Harnaam Kaur are teaching us that every kind of women has her own place in this wide world where she won’t be judged or prejudiced for being different. Seeing them makes us feel content with our own inner beauty and tells us not to be afraid or ashamed of our outer appearances.


Celebrity singers like Adele and Amber Riley perhaps have the most resonating voices of all and they are not afraid to perform in their own skin.


Queen Latifah, Jennifer Coolidge and other ladies who rock Hollywood are rather proud of their own image portray it vivaciously.


Lately more and more women are realizing that being size zero and literally starving yourself to achieve such unrealistic goals is bordering on the edge of stupidity. The ‘’ thin like a model’’ fad is slowly being shown its exit. Nowadays what everybody wants ultimately , is to look in the mirror everyday and be proud of who we are. People will soon see that those who are able to accept the person that they are, radiate an inner beauty that cannot be equaled by any external cosmetic changes.

All this shows us that fashion is not just limited to those who can flick their hair, wave elegantly and saunter on the runway with the confidence of a lioness on the prowl. These two following quotes tell us exactly that;

‘How much time have I wasted on diets and what I look like? Take your time and your talent and figure out what you have to contribute to this world. And get over what the hell your butt looks like in those jeans!’ – America Ferreira

‘Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.’- Tyra Banks
