Default Lindsey Garbelman: Macy's

Macy's deserves a shout-out for a host of new images featuring size-16/18 plus-size model Lindsey Garbelman. Macy's used to limit itself to faux-plus models, but this is definitely a sign of improvement.

My favourite image is of Lindsey in this ruffled dress. I adore ruffles, and I love Lindsey's pose, which shows off her buxom profile.

This is a unique and daring image. The dress, or sheath, is quite abbreviated, so the image provides an oh-la-la view of Lindsey's legs. It's almost risqué! Love the energy from Lindsey.

Another ruffled dress, which I find adorable, although I would love to see these items in other colours besides black.

The last dress is a bit less interesting, except for the attractive design at the bust, but it is still appealing on Miss Garbleman.

I love this photo of Lindsey because you can see a hit of roundness at her middle -- a size-positive touch -- and the item hugs her hips in an attractive way.

And finally, two more contemporary tops:

I hope that Macy's will continue to feature bigger girls, and that its example will lead the way for other New York clients. All of these items, the dresses and the tops, look much more appealing on an authentically full-figured goddess like Lindsey than they would on a size-10/12 thin model.
