So sexy lingerie for us curvy women is usually hard to come by and if you do find something that actually fits…the price tag on it is a jaw dropper, well this is the site to shop from for all your lingerie needs.

There items are also flexible because you could turn it from a bedroom look to a night out in the town.

The corset could go over a tank top and some skinny or flared jeans with some killer heels, and your ready for that hot date.

I also like what they did below with the bra, it just shows you al the possibilities, don’t be shy! dare to be different, love your curves! 🙂

A 2die4 shoot!

It’s here! it’s finally here~ The plus-size photoshoot of the year is right around the corner, the soon to be biggest fashion house in Nairobi  Fashion2die4 is conducting it’s first plus size photo shoot for us curvy women. I’m particularly excited about this one, because my friend owner and founder of fashion2die4  George does a great job at directing shoots and coming up with great concepts and his partner the gorgeous Hanako does nothing short of an amazing job at styling the models and makeup, talented duo they are :-).

This shoot is definately 2die4, can’t wait to see the pics!

The Feminist Kitchen

When Dallasite Nancy Upton heard about American Apparel’s tacky pitch for a plus-size modeling contest, she was pissed. She writes on the Daily Beast:

The message [was] that a subservient, nearly naked woman has always earned a place in American Apparel’s advertising with no trouble, but that larger women need to vote each other down and compete against one another to even deserve a chance.

If you’re not familiar with American Apparel’s advertising style, it looks something like this:

Size-2 women, usually not more than 24 years of age, wearing next to nothing. Unstyled hair, no makeup, ruffled sheets. You can almost smell the sex.
