I want that burgundy dress! Are those meant to be sheer panels on both sides of the waist? How exciting. And oooh, that slit is so high! I think any curvy vixen dressed that way would feel like she was the most desired woman in the world - and she probably would be.

And that text is just as inspiring. The words "celebrate" and "ideal" come up time and again, and I think its absolutely true that the most exciting fashions are those that think of the curvaeous figure as an ideal that is meant to be celebrated.

But the one line that I found totally original is this -

"These designs.....make a positive virtue out of flesh rather than bone".

I love the idea of thinking of curves as a VIRTUE, since the media tries to portray them as the opposite. And why wouldnt they be?
