Its true about Mode and its dream world. For me, it was like looking into the future, into a time when size prejudice was a thing of the past, and plussize beauty was true beauty once again. The magazine always brought a smile to my face. It really created a "mood" all its own, a mood of pure bliss.

It wasnt just that Mode didnt have diet ads or weight loss promotions. The very IDEA of dieting and weight loss was unthinkable! Those things just did not exist in the Mode world. Being plus was gorgeous, no ifs, ands, or buts. Mode dared to say "eating is sexy" - literally, it said exactly those words. And I still remember AG Brittons editorial in which she said how sad it was when she saw one of her own models losing weight. "More is more", she said, and I think all of us are still trying to learn that lesson.
