    Plus+ Movie

    I ran across a lot of new stuff today which I have to share you with all. Now this one is a very interesting ‘project’ I ran into. It’s called ‘Plus+‘ and it’s a short film created by Standard Grooming Productions.

    So what’s the movie about? It’s about Victoria, a once a top plus-size model, who has seen her fortunes change since the industry shifted to ‘padding up’ thinner models to make their torsos appear large while retaining their toned arms and chiseled features. With bankruptcy looming and her confidence shattered, Victoria’s only hope of regaining her former glory and her financial independence hinges on the Gamble Girl audition. But Tiffany, the current top plus-size model who despises fat people, will stop at nothing to be the next Gamble Girl.

    Watch trailer of this, what look like it’s going to be, a very interesting and eye opening short film today. In the meantime I am trying to find out whether this movie is still in production, and if not where I can get my hands on it, to watch the full version. If anyone knows anything I might be missing please let me know!

    Australia’s Curvy Lingerie 2007 Calendar

    If you’re still looking around for a plus size themed 2007 calendar, I have just discovered another interesting option which you should take a look at. A new calendar which features beautiful full figured women from Australia and which has a ‘lingerie and intimate apparel’ theme to it. So if you are perhaps looking for something different, you might want to take a look at this lingerie themed 2007 curvy calendar which was created by the Bella Model Management.

    As stated on the website, all the ladies featured in the calendar have a healthy BMI and range from size 12 through to size 18, showing women everywhere that glamor and beauty have nothing to do with dress size!

    What’s very good to know also is that 20% of all profits generated from this calendar will go to various eating disorder foundations and clinic’s around Australia to continue the fight for women’s health and self esteem. What a great initiative indeed.

    So check out Australia’s answer to a curvy 2007 calendar, and if you want to take a look at the making of the calendar itself, watch this video.

    World of Size

    I’m always glad to see new websites open up which are geared to plus size women and men. Whether they are fashion stores, blogs, networking sites, or anything else… I think it’s a very positive sign that plus size women and their admirers are opening up, making their voice heard.

    A very cool, and I suspect very fresh, website which I ran into today is Nation of Size. Now this is a website with a difference! They are calling themselves ‘the size friendly video network’ and they offer a different video every day of the week, which tackles a different topic each day. Your host Petey, is a very bubbly character, who I think is doing an amazing job.

    I watched today’s video, from the ‘People of Size on Stage’ series, which showcases Vanessa Conde who trained in opera, and is a regular in the house music scene. I really suggest you visit Nation of Size today, add it to your bookmarks and also sign up to the network to keep yourselves updated with news and upcoming items.

    By the way… I love the opening jingle! It’s very catchy and I’m finding myself humming it this morning. Good job Petey… keep it up!

    Happy New Year!

    Perhaps this is indeed a little belated… but then again, better late than never! I wish you all the best for the New Year! I hope you had an enjoyable New Year’s Eve, as I have…

    I have taken some time off blogging to relax, shop through the sales, and eat Christmas cake. But now that all that is over, it’s back to the usual routine!
