Our contributors are so inspiring!
Curvy consultant extraordinaire Jessica Kane launched the Full Body Photo Project encouraging plus sized ladies to post full pictures of themselves, not just their faces.
It caught on and now over 2,000 women have posted pictures of their beautiful, confident selves! 32 retailers have sponsored the initiative which has garnered over $5,000 in prizes!
We’re so proud of Jessica for empowering and inspiring so many women!

We’re all bout the stripes lately. As for Jessica, she reveals…
"This week's column is about prints baby!
I saw the most gorgeous prints on the runway for Spring and was completely captivated by Milly by Michelle Smith. I know there is the myth that curvy girls should never wear stripes and bold prints, but I think you should be able to wear whatever makes you happy! So, I wanted to show curvy girls where they could score runway prints in sizes 12+.
Here are my top choices for the 3 hottest prints; geometric, dots and stripes.
Kate Moss has been in the media recently this month, mostly due to the fact she was named the new face of Mango.
Check out what she has to say below and how you can copy Kate's look on the cheap!
Our newest fashion correspondent, Jessica Kane, is back this week to share yet another great fashion editorial.
This time around, she has a special message for Melissa McCarthy — stop wearing dark colors!
I'm one of Melissa McCarthy's biggest fans, but I was so sad to see her on the Golden Globe red carpet in a dreary dark emerald ensemble that quite simply, doesn't match her personality and fire in life. I barely recognized her! If I were Melissa's stylist, I would have put her in a delicious jewel toned strapless and shown off that beautiful body and soul! Something that said, I'm beautiful and I KNOW IT!
Ditch the black and embrace color! Too many plus size women think that black will make them look/feel better, but guess what, it's not! Experiment with jewel tones and challenge yourself to live life more colorfully.
