To be honest, I was not aware of the Volux Full Figured Calendar, until I read a review of the 2007 version by Glen L. Johnson. So I hopped over to the Volux website to take a look at the calendar, and I must say I’m impressed by what I see. We often run across calendars showcasing skinny girls around, so it’s only fitting that a plus size version of this is in existence! What I like most of all, from what I can see on the website, is that the pictures of the beautiful women feature them in an elegant, chic and classy style! Well done Volux. I suggest you get yours today… I’m ordering mine right after the Christmas holiday post madness is over.

Tyra Banks Crowns New Plus Size Beauty
As I’m sure many of you have already heard, retired catwalk star Tyra Banks, hosted a contest for plus size beauties yesterday during her talk show. America’s Next Top Model host has said that “You do not have to be super stick skinny in order to model.” The voluptuous beauties who entered this contest, strutted their stuff yesterday on the TYRA show, fighting for the chance to show off their bodies and be named the winner! Among the judges of the contest, present were Mia Tyler, Josh Morrow and Ruben Studdard.
The first Top Plus-Size Model winner was Marguerite Brown, who weighs 218 pounds! Besides having the honor of being the first plus size woman to be crowned Top Plus-Size Model on the TYRA show, Marguerite won a photo spread opportunity with the new Bombshell magazine, as well as a $1,000 shopping spree and a one-year contract with top modelling agency Wilhelmina Models.
Well done Marguerite! You truly deserve your new title. And an even bigger well done to Tyra Banks who is showing her support to plus size models and full figured women worldwide, proving to us all, once again, that big is indeed beautiful and worthy of being on the front covers of magazines!
