When Plus-Size And Skinny Mix

It’s finally here!  Six months later, the plus-size meets skinny shoot has arrived.

Back in December, I posted a sneak peak to this photo shoot — a photo shoot that means a lot to me.  Not only was it a chance to show that thin ladies and plus-size ladies can coexist and work together, but it was a chance to pose with one of my dearest friends — a friend who has loved me through my ups and downs, highs and lows (and definitely highs and lows of weight).  As I said before, part of the reason I think these photos worked so well is because there was an emotional bond between its subjects.  But had there not been — had I been posing with a size four gal who I’d never met before in my life, I’d still love the idea.  I’d still want to show that companies and brands and people need to open their eyes (and markets) to the fact that women of all sizes are beautiful — that women of all sizes can model — and that women of all sizes want to express their personalities through the apparel they wear…and that someday it’d be great if everything from Walmart to couture catered to that seemingly simple fact.

My thanks to Julia of Jay Photographics and her beautiful partner Emily for working with us and taking these gorgeous shots.  And my thanks to Courtney, for being one of the most important people in my life, for putting up with my bi-polar personality and epic mood swings, for being my friend.

    OMG! These photos are amazing. You both look so beautiful, and so alike, like sisters! It’s such a great idea to photograph women of completely different sizes together in similar clothes, and it would be so nice if manufacturers of clothing would pay attention to this.

    • Thanks Karen! Hehe I think we look alike as well, though we aren’t at all related. I wish brands advertised like so. I definitely think it’d increase sales and instill a better message in their staff and shoppers.
