|I enjoyed that "styling gallery" very much, and my favourite pics are definitely those that show fuller-figured models, like Valerie and Barbara. With great fashions like these, the more generous the models curves, the better.|
Maybe this will sound a bit farfetched, but I think the measure of plussize fashion is how much "body love" it expresses.
And body love in fashion is just like any other kind of love affair. If the clothing is designed by someone who really loves womanly figures, the clothing will embrace the body, lingering over the curves, holding it close - and will also delight in proudly showing it off!
But if it is designed by someone who is uncomfortable about womanly figures, or especially by someone who secretly dislikes them, the clothing will "keep its distance", will be stiff and awkward around the curves, will want to keep them hidden away.
The clothes on the New Femininity page look like they LOVE the bodies that are wearing them.
And by the way, Solveig is really charming. And the top looks both classy and sexy. That image should be included on your stying page too.
