Default Lindsey - Belk F/W 2010

While it may be tempting to compare the exciting, size-positive campaigns coming out of Brazil with the faux-plus disappointments that pervade the North American plus-size industry and despair, every once in a while there are promising signs.

Take Belk, for example. If one goes through their "Women's Plus" section and looks past the forgettable faux-plus models, one finds a host of images of size-16 beauty Lindsey Garbelman.

She completely outshines all of the skinnier models, and looks fantastic. The clothing is simple, but Lindsey makes it all look beautiful.

Here's the first item. I love this one because it comes with a reverse-view picture as well as a front view, and the former shows off the model's generous curves.

I'm posting the thumbnails, but if you click on the product-page links, you can zoom the images up to a much larger size.


Here's Lindsey modelling a cardigan in two different colours. Nice design at the bust. Great pose by Lindsey in the image on the left, especially the devilish look in her eyes.

A pair of tees with similar prints:

These tees are quite interesting to look at, and fans of Lindsey will be delighted that they fit her figure perfectly, showing off the feminine fullness of her waist.

A pair of tank tops. I prefer the lighter colour myself.

Lindsey's long, long tresses are a key component of her appeal. And of course, that big, warm smile of hers, as seen in the left-hand picture below, is world famous.

And finally, a stylish jacket.

Lindsey is so gorgeous and vixenish that she makes these basic styles really come alive. Her figure gives the outfits an attractive shape. I can't fathom why any client would use faux-plus girls, when it could use truly curvy goddesses like Lindsey or Kelsey Olson.

Kudos to Belk for selecting such a lovely, curvy model.
