Have you see the recent video that Lane Bryant produced for the #PlusisEqual campaign, featuring gorgeous women of all sizes strutting their goods in sexy lingerie? They launched in strategically in time for New York Fashion Week 2015 and I love it! It makes me feel so beautiful and wanted! I think all of us can use a little positive reinforcement that all body types, shapes and sizes are beautiful and desired!
I am so happy that there is a push for a more supportive curvy fashion community, slow, but progressive non the less.
Lane Brant is also the creator of the recent #IamNoAngel campaign.
Not surprising, one of my most popular posts on this blog is Models in the Media. Yes, “fat and pretty” women exist, and get paid to flaunt their curves. Again, I wonder if people genuinely are interested and looking for inspiration, or are they gawking to poke fun. I guess we will never know. These are true thoughts of a plus size women, always questioning ourselves if people are being honest. That’s what I believe anyway, maybe I am jaded.
Today’s latest news in the Plus-size world is the #IAmNoAngel Campaign, which is a rebuttal to the Victoria Secret Angels Campaign that only features thin women. This cleaver hashtag by Lane Bryant nicely encapsulates that plus size women know we don’t belong, and we chose not to belong. It’s like big sister who is a rebel, confident in her own ways and a trend setter for the rest of the women who need the encouragement.
So let me be your big sister! I’ll be using this hashtag on my instagram in the next coming days, please join me sistas!
