The Wolf Models (Germany) site has been down for some time now, presumably being "under construction," but it finally came back online a few days ago. So far, among plus-size models, only the portfolios of Barbara Brickner (link below) and one other girl have been posted, but I'm sure that more will appear in the near future.

I enjoy visiting this site, as its portfolios list stats (Barbara's are a very curvy 41-35-45), and often show different images from those that appear in the models' other online books. Here, for example, is an Elena Miro image of Barbara that I always regarded highly, as it truly celebrates her Classical figure:

<br>A gorgeous image indeed--and an exemplary portfolio. It reminds fans of just how much work Barbara does for non-U.S. clients. One of the characteristics of a true supermodel career is shooting for innumerable clients worldwide. Mrs. Brickner's career certainly spans the globe--and in the process, like a pilgrim of beauty, she exports the Classical ideal all over the world.

Barbara can also currently be seen on the Reitmans.com cover page. Her image appears in rotation with two others. Although she is not, in this case, modelling the most attractive item in the Reitmans winter collection, (better garments are featured in the actual Encore 14+ section of the site,) it is always a pleasure to see a plus-size model on the <i>cover</i> of a national retailer's Web site. It indicates the company's awareness that plus-size goddesses can be every bit as effective as minus-size waifs (indeed, moreso) at attracting viewers.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/bb/br37.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/bb/br37a.jpg" border="0" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>- <a href="http://www.reitmans.com" target="_blank">Reitmans.com</a>

That Elena Miro image of Barbara is stunning, and very sexy - but in a chic and elegant way.

The Wolf Models site features many more models now, and Barbara definitely outshines the rest. I do, however, like some of the images in the portfolio of Gaynor Anema - especially this one, which has been posted here before:

This is one of the most sensual and size-positive images I have yet seen from a plussize model. She looks so relaxed in this image, so comfortable with her figure. I only think that in some of her images, she could benefit from more voluptuous, Romantic hairstyles, with more volume.

Ms. Anemas stats are 107-100-111 metric, which translates in inches to:
42-39-44

Just for comparison, Charlotte Coyles stats are:
40-39-51

and Megan Garcia is listed as:
40-38-49

I find it wonderful that the industry is getting away from only using models with compressed waists, but is accepting more gorgeous girls, with truly shapely figures, including curvy midriffs - and even beginning to show off their natural contours in their photos.
