If, after reading this message, you conclude that the title of this post was a bit of a tease, please forgive us; we only took our cue from Happy Size itself--the company that is the source of the following extremely teasing images.
That marvellous German retailer has just made the dreams of all plus-size model aficionados come true, by releasing two brand-new, never-before-seen, heartstoppingly gorgeous images of Barbara Brickner . . . modelling . . . swimwear.
Yes, "*gasp*" is right. But there's a catch. The images are utterly minuscule, as are all of the pictures that Happy-Size.de uses to illustrate its online editorials.
Nevertheless, the images amply justify Mrs. Brickner's reputation as the most perfect swimwear model of all time, and confirm modestyle.com's rather unambiguous declaration that Barbara possesses "the sexiest body on earth."
The first image is an especially notorious tease, in that it shows the model wearing a mesh sheath. But the second image immediately recalls the model's legendary black-and-white swimwear image from Mode, which has done as much to restore the Classical ideal of feminine beauty as any single image ever has.
Regrettably, unless some kind German soul sends us a copy of the new Happy Size catalogue, aficionados will have to content themselves with small .jpgs, and large imaginations.
But not to leave fans of this perennially popular model's lovely facial features disappointed, we also present this splendid headshot from ElenaMiro.com. The Elena Miro team always knows just the right way to arrange the model's tresses to best advantage, and the Elena Miro lens never fails to capture Barbara at her most radiant.
So, who will be the first to publish a Classical Goddess swimsuit issue? We will simply have to wait and see . . .
