Crystal Renn: plus size modelling sensation

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006 | Uncategorized with 2 Comments

I must say, although Crystal Renn is a familiar face to me, I did not really know who she was, or what she was all about. That was until today: I came across this article at the which explains Crystal’s journey from being a 7 stone skinny model, to an 11 stone superstar. Crystal now wears a size 16, and has found fame after gaining weight. She has appeared in Vogue and is currently the sensation of fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, as well as designer Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Now this is the kind of news I would like to hear everyday! What enouragement this gives to plus size women, especially teenagers, everywhere. Hopefully stories like Crystal’s will become more commonplace and more skinny models will start to gain beautiful curves, as Crystal has.

How to wear black

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006 | Uncategorized with No Comments »

An interesting article I came across at discusses how more and more fashion designers nowadays are focusing on plus size fashion and the needs of curvy women. It goes on to explore how a staple item in every woman’s closet is something in the color black; basically the reason for this is because this helps women look slimmer. However the article goes on to emphasize that it’s not merely just a question of wearing something black; if one wears something black that is baggy and oversized, that is not going to be of much help to flatter the figure! Instead women should focus mostly on fit and fabric, even if it’s in black. Read the full article today at

Have you seen the new Jessica London?

Monday, September 18th, 2006 | Uncategorized with No Comments »

Jessica London, a plus size clothing store carrying fashions in sizes 14W to 34W (including petites and talls) has today announced the launch of a new, revamped website! At first glance, the changes are noticeable, and the website now looks very professional and easier to navigate and shop around. The main categories available on the main page are ‘New Arrivals’, ‘Clothing’, ‘Shoes & Accessories’, ‘Outerwear’ and ‘Clearance’. Browsing through these sections provides a shopper with further shopping options.

Perhaps one suggestion I would make to Jessica London, for further website improvement and a better user experience, would be for them to use more real plus size models to showcase their curvy fashions. However the quality and prices are so good, we suggest all plus size women check out their new website today!
