Curves Rock - Tumblr Link.

Curves Rock. A Tumblr Link.

This is definitely NSFW. I'm linking to it because I like the way it has contributed to me liking my own body the way it is and I hope it might do the same for friends. The presentation is not radical - it uses the usual accoutrements and poses, but I don't mind this as I do find those things sexy. (The questions about why are for another day, and have been covered elsewhere by better writers than me.)

I'm also curious as to whether people who dislike fat (including males who are used to seeing only thin women portayed as desirable) will find it changes their feelings about what is beautiful.

Oohh, I like and linking on their website shows affordable clothes too. What a win.

I'm glad you like it.

But if you are choosing items: IME SWAK designs are larger than you'd expect, and not well made.

Kiyonna, on the other hand, are worth what you pay and the sizing is more accurate.

If you go to Kiyonna's American website, you'll find the postage is prohibitive. (You can also get Kiyonna on eBay quite cheaply if you stick to Australian sellers.)

There are some gorgeous gorgeous women there. Wow.

Though I have to say, if they're fat, I'm enormously so. Though I think a lot of it's about muscle tone (muscles? what are they?)

But yes. Much more interesting than the same old very thin models. Who are also beautiful but it's nice to see a range of sizes, and it's rare to get that.

Yes, I agree on the sizing issue. To my eyes they're curvy, not fat. But I was recently browsing swimwear, and those models are positively anorexic.

I also feel that they still conform in terms of body shape. My body shape isn't there. Also, the faces are only conventionally beautiful.

I was just pointed to a local fat burlesque group over on Le Livre du Visage. Those women are much more genuinely full-figured.

What I noticed is that they all have very obvious waists, not a whole lot of tummy happening there. Boobs and butts, but no tummies, so they are still having that ratio between waist and hips which people are supposed to find attractive.

Not a lot of cellulite either (maybe it was airbrushed).

Some lovely ladies though!

There are some truly beautiful women there. But no, they are not fat, curvy, yes, but fat? No. I think they've worked at toning those lovely bodies a good bit, something that a lot of us can't/don't do.
