Who is Chloe Marshall?

OK I admit, I am probably the last one in the plus size blogging industry to report on Chloe Marshall, but ah things have been super duper hectic lately. I am only now getting back into regular postings and regular email checks. So although this news it rather late, I thought it was too important not to mention on the scoop simply because it’s not hot off the press. So apologies in advance if you’ve read up on this before.

Chloe Marshall is a young lady from Englad who is breaking boundaries, challenging stereotypes, and a person who have a very bright future ahead.

A 17 year old from Gulford, UK, Chloe has become the first ever size 16 (that’s size 14 US) model to be selected a finalist for the Miss England competition. Chloe, who is a beauty therapist student, beat seven other slimmer girls to the title of Miss Surrey and will therefore now run in the national finals.

Although plus size ladies, and all real women, are super ecstatic about this breakthrough, and genuinely happy for Chloe’s success, there are some others who think Chloe does not really deserve to hold her title.

One opinion in particular which made most noise, and caused a lot of discussion (and with reason!), was published on the Daily Mail by Monica Grenfell. You guys seriously have to read the article to believe the kind of things this ‘dietician’ claimed. It is absolutely appalling, and she should completely be ashamed to call herself a real woman. After reading this make sure you head on to Kate Harding’s awesome respone. Kate you rock!

So as you might imagine, I think Chloe should be very proud of her achievement and I wish her the best of luck for the finals. I am sure she has a very bright future ahead.

Cheerleader Boys

Here’s something you definitely do not see everyday, an all-male plus size cheerleading squad team dubbed the ‘Manatees’.

This Florida base baseball cheerleading squad will perform at Marlins home games on Friday and Saturday nights. Set up primarily as a way to bring back fans, the cheerleader boys are finding this experience a fun, rewarding and most of all, liberating one!

The squad range in age from their early 20s to their early 60s, and in build from slightly chubby to a litte bit more. I think this is such a great idea these guys have put together, read more about it at

Simple Yet Chic: IGIGI's New Dress

IGIGI has this week added a brand new plus size dress to it’s collection, the Sheath dress. Featuring short sleeves and a figure flattering fit, this dress is simple and yet versatile and extremely chic. It is available in two colors: sage and gray (as pictured).

What I really like about this new addition is the fact that it can taken you through all hours of the day; using this dress for different occasions during both day and night is very doable. Pair it up with some dressy court shows and a blazer in the morning for a perfect business meeting outfit. Then dress it down with some sandals, a long beaded necklace and a matching pair of earrings, and you’re all set for meeting your loved one for some drinks or a lovely dinner somewhere posh.

Plus Size Fashion Tips from Reyhan Yazici

I ran across a very interesting article on a Turkish online publication today, which focuses on plus size fashion trends, issues, as well as top tips.

Drawn up up fashion designer Reyhan Yazici, this article first goes to explaining how plus size clothing is nowadays more readily available to women. Although in the past full figured women might have been restricted to boring, plain and dark colored clothes, this is no longer the case.

Further on Reyhan gives some tips to plus size women, tips to take into consideration to make sure one looks chic and stylish. Reyhan suggest seeking out your own individual style, no matter what it is! Although you might think black and darker colors are a safer choice, curvy women should not stick to dark shades all the time. Choose colorful and vibrant designs to create an elegant look which accentuates you plus points, and hides those areas you’d rather keep discreet.

Surprisingly this Turkish fashion design also suggests never to use broad belts. He claims it is better to go for a low-rise version. I guess this belt issue boils down to tastes really. I myself do not feel comfortable wearing belts, I think that is the only accessory that I rarely wear. But that’s just me! However he does encourage larger ladies make use of V-necks, although with caution. Steer clear of very plunging neckline; one cannot give too much away! With this I concur.

All in all, pay attention to the details ladies! Even small changes can make or break your look, and definitely steer clear of very loose tops!

I thought this article by Reyhan was very refreshing, and it is always good to read up on what experts in the industry suggest for larger ladies. I’m always open to hearing new and interesting tips! It is also very positive to have a Turkish publication take up and publish plus size related articles. Well done guys, and keep it up.
