Plus Band Already Making News

Sunday, July 29, 2007

Plus Size BandAbout a month ago, I spoke about how a sizzling new band made up of just plus size women, was set up by curvy UK magazine Just as Beautiful. This band was set up, after the magazine organized a unique and successful contest, where they searched through loads of curves and talent, to make up a one of a kind curvy band, which they dubbed Plus.

Well it looks like the girls at Plus are already making a big impact! An ABC News article published a few days ago recounts how the band was created.

The article also features some further insight, and comments from the girls themselves. One group member, Hannah Lee, told ABC News, "As I am big, I just thought I am never going to properly get into the music industry."

So here's a round up of all the girls who make up the curviest band in the music industry:
  • Hannah Lee
  • Rachel Faulkner
  • Shirley Slaymaker
  • Kate Newnes
  • Stacey-Lee Cuddy

Want to be on Wife Swap?

Fashion Overdose is assisting in casting for the 4th season of ABC's reality show Wife Swap.

ABC is currently casting for the 4th season and are looking for families with a strong female presence. If you have seen the show, you probably know that they pride themselves on casting a wide array of families... families from all different walks of life who would like the opportunity to educate the viewing audience about their particular parenting philosophy and their way of life.

This year ABC is specifically casting for a plus-size family; And Fashion Overdose would love to speak to you more about this project to see if you might be interested or if you might have suggestions about possible candidates.

If you are familiar with the show, the premise of Wife Swap is to take two different families and have the mom's switch place to experience how another family lives. Half of the week, mom lives the life of the family she is staying with. She then introduces a "rule change" where she implements rules and activities that her family has. This is meant to be a positive experience for people to not only learn but teach about other families and other ways of life.

Families must consist of two parents and at least one child between 6 and 17. Also, families featured in an episode receive a $20,000 honorarium.

If you are interested, please contact Fashion Overdose at 858-248-8888 or email your phone number to .

Revisiting Plus+

Thursday, July 19, 2007

Plus+Way back in early January (can't believe how time has simply flown by the year!) I ran across an interesting short movie about the plus size modeling industry called Plus+. In the post back then I wrote about how interested I was in this movie, and after searching around for a while could not manage to find it anywhere.

The power of the Internet (and blogging) is truly great, as sure enough as couple of weeks ago Chris Shirley (the writer and director of Plus+) got in touch with me and was kind enough to send me a copy of Plus+.

As soon as the movie arrive in the post, I eagerly watched it, along with my mom who was very interested in seeing it as well. Plus+ turned out to be a very interesting and thought provoking short movie about the story of a real plus size model, trying to make it in the industry.

What is Plus+ About?
If you missed by earlier post, let me recap really quickly. Plus+ is a short movie about a once top plus size model, Victoria, who is now finding it hard to find gigs. Victoria is a true plus size model, as in she does not pad to be plus size, she IS plus size. On the other hand rival models depicted in this movie simply wear padding suits to appear they are full figured women. This is a cute little story which in the end see Victoria winning over her thin and padded counterparts.

Although a short movie, it is indeed thought provoking. For starters I was not aware that (neither was my mom for that matter) that many 'plus size models' actually pad themselves up. Then it got me thinking. But why? If padded women (that sound really funny to be by the way!) are going to fit into bigger sized clothes, why not use real plus size women in the first place?

Magazines, clothing stored, etc who make use of these padded women for their shoots needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Real plus size women need to related to the pictures they see in magazines, so please start using only real plus size women!

Some Thoughts from the Writer of Plus+
Ok now that I got my little rant out of the way, let's move back to the focus of this post, the movie. Chris, was kind enough to share some insight into what inspired him to create Plus+.
What inspired you to create this film?
Chris ShirleyWhen I first moved to New York in 1990, my first group of friends included several gorgeous plus size models.  (Alexandra, the lead actress in Plus is in fact one of my dearest friends and a Ford model.) I’ve always been drawn to “big girls” and found these models incredibly attractive. But I quickly learned that, although they were called “models,” these women often felt like second-class citizens in Manhattan where you can’t be too thin or too rich.
Still, I didn’t fully grasp their predicament until I learned the plus-size industry’s big secret:  the very top plus models were often size 8 and 10 girls who were padded up to look big.  So, even in the industry where these models should have felt completely accepted, the message they received daily was they were second-class to thinner models. 
As you know, this short only scratches the surface of the life of a plus-size model. Still, I hope it will shed a little light into their world.

Do you have any other plus related films?
I'd enjoy writing Plus as a feature to fully develop the theme of "self-approval" that was only touched on in the short. The story just begs for Victoria to have a love interest or two which will help us chart her course as she grows into the confident, self-approving woman she has every right to be.
For further information on Plus+ visit Chris at Standard Grooming.

Summer Guide to Keeping it Natural

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Colorblock Dress by KiyonnaAlthough a touch of glam is always important, I believe that the summer season is when ladies can create the best looks by keeping is 'au naturel'. What better way to show off your sun-kissed skin, than to dress up in neutral colors, minimizing on the make-up and maximizing on your natural glow.

Kiyonna has this season, put together some very interesting and find pieces which can help plus size women create this natural look. Summer sophistication at Kiyonna begins with bold animal prints, stonewashed neutrals with warm rose accents, breezy silk cotton and comfy jersey.

Here are my favorite combinations, which can give you an idea on what to pick, and how to mix and match the pieces:
  • Colorblock Dress - Beautifully minimalistic, this dress is synonymous with summer sophistication. Wear this dress to create a chic look, whilst being extremely comfortable.
  • Modal Epaulet Channeling Tee + Cuffed Shorts - This ensemble proves that basic pieces was be put together to create stylish looks, which are anything but boring! This V-neck top includes clever details such as channeling tie and covered buttons on short cuffed sleeves. Paired up with the cuffed shorts, which are incredibly light, with just the right amount of spandex to ensure a comfortable fit.
  • Silk Cotton Voile Channeling Blouse - An incredibly unique top, including playful details such as ruffles, and smart details such as a sewn in inset at the deep V-neck. A must see.
  • Giraffe Print Wrap Tee - One of my favorite pieces, which Kiyonna is offering this season, this top screams out style. The bold giraffe print is both trendy and chic. The wrap style, coupled with astutely positioned princess seams, ensure a figure flattering cut.
  • Silk Cotton Voile Dress with Channeling - Another beautiful piece, which you have to check out. This dress is very similar to the Silk Cotton Voile Channeling Blouse, though obviously is a lightweight dress, instead of a blouse! Very cute piece.

So remember, keep it looking natural this season for a winning look. Plus Kiyonna is also currently offering free ground shipping on orders of $100 or more.

Glamazons Rock the Stage

Sunday, July 15, 2007

I had heard about the Glamazons previously, and although I thought they were a group of very sexy plus size ladies who are doing a great job at performing and in turn making big women feel good about themselves, I never really followed them closely. So I was luck enough today to find out through mo pie, about their amazing audition for the show America's Got Talent.

Who are the Glamazons?
Ok first things first. The Galamzons girls are a group of buxom beauties hailing from a little place called East Village, who just love to sing, dance and perform. They perform a 'hot helping of bawdy burlesque, striptease, go go dancing and sassy songs... serving it up with a sexy style all of their own'. Often times they have been described as the plus size Pussy Cat Dolls. Although members of the group have changed since the groups' founding in 2002, the current ensemble includes Lady Finger, Candy Apple, Ginger Snap and Caramela. To find out more about these great ladies, and what they do, visit

Their Big & Successful Audition
A couple of weeks ago, on June 26th to be exact, the Glamazons auditioned to become part of season two's America's Got Talent, which is an American reality TV series featuring amateur singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and other performers of all ages competing for a top prize.

The actual audition performed by the Galamzons is currently available on for viewing, and I do urge you to take a look at it.

Watch it... Why?
First of all it's a great performance, and will give you a very good idea of what the Glamazons are all about. It's simply great and very refreshing to see a group of lovely and large girls doing their thing on stage, in front of basically a whole nation! If you're having a bad day, and maybe you're feeling low because of some figure issues, watch this video right away as it will definitely boost your morale. These girls will make you feel proud of your curves.

Secondly, watch it to see the incredible reactions the members of the panel have to the girls' performance. Dear old David Hasselhoff loves their performance, as well as all the other panelist, and much to the girls' surprise the Glamazons make it to participate in the show.

This will definitely be a very interesting season 2 of the show, which I will be definitely following closely.

New Additions at Fashion Overdose

Jessica Top from Fashion OverdoseNew items have been added to the edgy plus size clothing line available at Fashion Overdose. This store focuses on fem, street styled fashions which at first glance might not appeal to everyone.

It is short-sleeves and included velvet and lave trimmings at both the sleeve and neckline. Tiny details which make this top unique. In comes with a faux satin belt at the empire waist, to further the curvy figure and flatter it. This is a very versatile top which can be worn in different occasions, during both the day and night.
