In the ongoing quest for true plus-size models, I came upon a French company called "Neby," which features one genuinely full-figured model who, while not quite a goddess of beauty, is fairly photogenic, and best of all, authentically curvy.

Her name, I gather, is Navie. She's buxom, has a curve under the chin, and soft, shapely arms and legs. Here she models a flattering outfit, one that accentuates her buxom figure.

Terrific legs.

Her generous figure fills out the Neby dresses beautifully.

You can see some luscious fullness around the waist. Nice pose too.

It's so refreshing to see a genuinely full-figured model.

She definitely has a well-fed look about her.

Curvy from the reverse view too.

Neby's other models aren't as pretty, but Navie has a definite look, and a spectacular figure. Plus, she seems happy about herself, proud of her fullness, which is very empowering.

I hope that this example of yet another company using a true plus-size model prompts agencies to start representing fuller-figured girls, and other retailers worldwide to start featuring the kind of generously proportioned models whom their customers keep asking for.

True, there may be several North American plus-size models with prettier faces who are also genuinely full-figured, but it's just such a pleasure to be seeing a legitimately curvaceous model featured by a clothing site. The most critical shortcoming in the plus-size industry is the use of so many non-plus-size models being passed off as plus-size.

I find the arguments in favour of "incremental" change as a defense of faux-plus models to be totally unpersuasive. All that results from that mentality is that plus-size models get smaller and smaller. The waifs certainly never get any bigger. They remain a size 0 or 2. Plus-size modelling simply compromises itself and loses any subversive power it ever could have had.

If there have to be faux-plus models, then stick them in with the straight-size models -- which is where they belong, and where they want to be, anyway. But in the plus-size industry, let's have some actual, honest-to-gosh curvy models.

And when the plus-size boards are finally filled with legitimately full-figured girls, then clients will have a choice among this talent for different looks.

Bravo to this French company for featuring a genuine plus-size model. The clothes look great on her, and she does have gorgeous legs.

Here are some new pics of Navie:

She looks especially buxom in this:

Great view from the side too:

Navie looks quite comfortable with herself, and maybe even a little more opulent than last season.
