Quote: Marilyn Monroe would be considered 'plus size' by today's standards. What a shameful time we live in. A woman is supposed to be soft and have curves, not be angular and boney.

"Shameful"? So I guess its now un-PC to like a lady that looks like Justine Joli.

Jeez, could we please not replace one standard of body shaming with another that's every bit as pernicious?

Very, very good point Blue. Upon second reading of that comment, I was a little perturbed. A woman isn't "supposed" to look like any one standard. Many women are just born "angular and bony" through no fault of their own. Just like it isn't the fault of a woman who is naturally curvy.My name is 650013 and I've committed forum suicide.

Right on, Blue and 650013!

My fantasies include gorgeous women of all sizes. We may all have our favorite "types" but there's no getting around that variety is THE spice, above all.

Any fav vids with girls of different shapes/sizes getting it on? Another take on variety I'd like to see.

Don't have any suggestions, at the moment, StGeorge, but do agree that variety is the SPICE.
Suppose we've all been so exposed to the ever-changing media's view of what's aesthetic, as a body-type, that it's healthy to step outside that universe long enough to realize it's not size that matters!

This is the Lane Bryant ad that the ABC television network did not run during during its 8 PM hour broadcast of "Dancing With the Stars."  What a shame because this woman is hot regardless of whether one considers her plus size, minus size, whatever size.

I think what's crazy is that alot of the ladies listed aren't plus size by a long shot! Even I've been called "fat and chubby" even by some of the reviewers on this site. Of course I'm gonna seem larger in comparison to some of the stars out there that weigh barely 100 lbs. The beauty of porn is everyone likes different shapes, sizes and colors. I love my curves and wouldnt change anything about my body

The definition of female beauty in any particular era is purely a matter of fashion, and for a bit more than 40 years our era's version has been at the skinny end to such an extent that it can only be called extreme and absurd. Not to mention unhealthy and destructive: This insane fashion trend actually has a tragically high body count.

These definitions become so ingrained that people forget they are just fashion, and that the definition could just as easily be something else. But it's true, it's purely a social construct, and our society's extreme is no less bizarre than the bound-foot fashion of imperial China.

One doesn't have to look to extremes at the other end like the beauties of Baroque era painters like Rubens to see that this is true (see Fine Art thread). Indeed, one need look no further back in history than the Marylin era. Even beauties from the tail end of that era and start of the current one like Ann Margaret and Raquel Welch would be condemned as "fat" by today's fashion dictators.

Love your Lane Bryant post, Lezfriend. She's deliciously curvy indeed.
I couldn't agree more: beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

But, then there is the extreme BBW concept that appears to promote (with a vengeance) morbid obesity as if it were a natural healthy phenomena. Even more ruinous to the health of our beautiful youth than the anorexic ideal, perhaps.

thanks so much for posting the link to the lane Bryant add.

I thought that the ad was well done and very tasteful.  We have an obsession in this country with Extremes, it is either extreme thinness or Extreme obesity.  We need to just let people be who they are, stop judging each other on our skin color, race, size, shape and weight.  Each of us is beautiful in our own way.  I think this add is perfect it shows young girls that you do not have to be a size 0-2 to be a real womam.  We are beautiful just the way we are, some of us may have to lose weight to be healthy or gain weight to be healthy but that does not mean we are not Beautiful.  The diffeerence is Beauty vs healthy, What is healthy for one may not be for the other But beauty is good and is in all of us.

Ashley Graham on Lane Bryant Commercial: 'Curves Are In, and They Are Here to Stay'

Kate Moss who?

Ashley Graham
is the model everyone is talking about, thanks to the controversy over her allegedly censored lingerie commercial for Lane Bryant. As we reported earlier, the plus-size retailer claims the ad was nixed by ABC and Fox for exposing too much cleavage, while an equally racy Victoria's Secret spot -- featuring willow-thin models -- got preferential airtime.

So how does the full-figured model feel about all the fuss and becoming the new face of the pro-curves movement?

StyleList has all the details in this exclusive interview with the 22-year-old Lincoln, NE, native.

StyleList: Did you have any inkling that the Lane Bryant ad would be so controversial when you shot it?
Ashley Graham: I had no idea. I was excited to be doing a commercial for Lane Bryant and promoting curvier women to feel free in their bodies! I was extremely shocked to hear the news, considering all the press that the plus industry has been getting lately. I think the ad is beautiful and very tasteful.

SL: How do you feel about the subsequent censorship controversy, ABC's charges that it's a publicity stunt, and the Victoria's Secret Nakeds ad running freely?
AG:
It's a double standard. The Victoria's Secret models can look amazing in their commercials, why can't we? Our "assets" are just a little bigger. Does it make that big of a difference?

SL: What do you think about the current trend of celebrating curves? Is it a welcome change, or do you worry that it's a gimmick that will fade away?
AG:
I feel fashion is changing and is finally ready to accept a variety of sizes. There has been so much press on this issue, so it's a big issue. Women want to feel empowered, and the mass interest on this issue is slowly but surely bringing about change.

I feel the current trend of celebrating curves is not just a gimmick that is going to fade away. Curves are in, and they are here to stay, along with celebrating all women of every size and shape!

SEE ASHLEY IN THE LANE BRYANT COMMERCIALSL: What sort of response from the public have you had since the Lane Bryant ad?
AG:
A very positive response! Women and men love the Lane Bryant commercial and were also shocked to hear about it being banned. People want to see the commercial. Women at every size want to see "themselves" on TV.

SL: Why is it important to see curvier women in their lingerie or as sex symbols?
AG:
It's very important to see all sizes of women in lingerie. All women are different and so are their bodies -- every single one should be praised! I know that women who are in the same size bracket as I am would want to see a woman like them feeling confident in her skin on television. It's sending a message of body acceptance and changing the idea of what beauty is "supposed to be."

SL: What do you say to critics who say the plus-size look isn't healthy?
AG:
I'm wondering what their idea of healthy is. I'm a size 16. I work out 2 to 3 times a week and eat a balanced diet. What makes me not healthy? Everybody has a different viewpoint of what is healthy and what isn't, but if you're taking care of yourself then that's all that should matter.

SL: Who are your fashion role models/style icons?
AG:
I turn to my best friend Crystal Renn for all my styling! She is a style icon, and I can't get enough of her effortless and chic style. We go shopping all the time, and I'm always picking up a new tip or two from her.

SL: Have you ever had a negative experience at a model casting because of your size?
AG:
No, I've never had a negative experience with any casting/job. Curves are becoming more and more accepted in the fashion industry, and I don't see this floating away anytime soon either.

SL: How did you get into modeling?
AG:
I was at the Omaha mall in Nebraska when a man from a local agency asked if I wanted to become a model... the rest is basically history from there.

SL: What's next for you?
AG:
So many doors are opening that I can't wait to explore! The fascinating thing about my job is that new things are popping up every day! So watch out, you'll be seeing more of me!
