''We will order what we want''
It reads a little rough for a published article, but I came across an online press release today that I thought I'd share:
It reads almost like a manifesto, and although it jumps from topic to topic, there is definitely a spirit of size celebration in the text. The author affirms a thoroughgoing preference for the fuller female figure, without any compromises.
Some of the best quotes:
"They try to tell us that skinny is beautiful, sexy and desirable. Boy, are they wrong. Ask an average man and heíll tell you that he prefers his woman with curves and substance."
"The truth is skinny is not beautiful nor sexy"
"We are not average, we are healthier and happier. We have better self-esteem, we are more giving, nurturing and loving"
and my favourite:
"When we go to a restaurant we donít have to split a salad, we will order what we want and when we want it. And guess what? We donít even feel guilty afterwards."
At the very least, it's good to know that such sentiments are out there, among the general populace. Let's hope that the mainstream media catches up someday, and starts creating depictions of plus-size women that reflect this new reality.

Re: ''We will order what we want''
This is a shining example of how a plus-size retailer can take an ordinary promotion, such as a press release, and turn it into a vehicle for delivering a size-positive message. The rejection of any notion of "guilt" is especially welcome. Goddesses never feel guilt.
The writer's attitude is one that every full-figured woman should adopt. We particular enjoy her assertion that a vixen who wears an "above average" dress size should remember the principal definition of that phrase ("better or more than"), for it is the "more than" quality of her curves that makes her beauty, in fact, better.
And why shouldn't a goddess feel this way? For decades, the media has attempted to dupe society into believing the counter-intuitive proposition than "lesser" is somehow preferable (which is like saying that down is up, or night is day, or black is white).
It's high time for curvaceous women to rediscover the actual definitions of these misused and misrepresented words and phrases:
-"full" is better than empty
-"more" is preferable to less
-"increase" means improvement
-"gain" means enhancement . . . and
-"plus" is positive.
