my rant to Simply be’s facebook page.
YOU TELL THEM GIRL, i’m tired of seeing girls who are size 16 advertising clothes that go up to size 30, I want to see how this dress looks on a big belly, if this neck line isn’t unflattering, if my arms will fit well in that sleeve, give me a model who’s size 26 with big belly and fat thighs!!!
YES! We need models with big bellys and thighs asoslive simplybefashionhmstreetstyle newlooksocial I mean for god sakes there are plenty of plus size bloggers who will do it in exchange for promotion for their blogs!
I’d do it for some free clothes, so like, explain why I’ve basically never seen clothes I buy modelled on someone with my body? It’s bad enough I can’t shop in brick and mortar shops, but I have to play guessing games with how something will fit on me, when at best i see a size 14 model showing me what a 1x looks like.
My mom always wanted me to try out for those plus size model search things and I always felt stupid having to explain to her that “plus size” to them meant a Large-1XL and was in no way my size or shape. They want girls with an hourglass shape, not actually curvy girls.
Thank you everyone on Tumblr for your responses, I have really been blown away with your support. Simply Be have been online and posting new things but have failed to give me any response what so ever. I think this might be something we might have to take to head office.
