Let Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Talk About Something Other Than Her Body

Let Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Talk About Something Other Than Her Body

Australian plus-size model Robyn Lawley spoke to The Mail Online about body image, diversity in fashion and I’m a little conflicted about the message she sends. She’s awesome and I’m glad she’s getting noticed, but there’s something troubling about the sentiment of some of her statements to The Mail. Her presence as a plus-size model in the fashion industry is of course important, but the whole plus-size racket comes with its own host of problems.

Plus Size Model Tara Lynn Covers Elle Spain! Ugh, She's Called "Real Woman"

We love the gorgeous and talented plus size model Tara Lynn (who was also featured in H&M’s “Big Is Beautiful” swimwear campaign a few years ago).

Gorgeous Bathing Suits From Robyn Lawley's New Plus-Size Swimsuit Line

It is no secret that finding clothing for sizes above about a 12 can not just be difficult, but also straight up disappointing. Lines for plus-size women are often cut strangely, sold online and only created in flat colors (because it flattens your tummy!!!!). Basically, they’re boring and we do not enjoy them.

Kenyatta Jones: Fashion ‘Forgot’ About Plus-Size People

Kenyatta Jones: Fashion 'Forgot' About Plus-Size People

As somebody whose dress size is typically in stores, there are certain things I do not know about being overweight simply by lack of experience. While I think everyone related to the fashion industry knows that there is a decided lack of clothing in plus-sizes, lately, many of us have been cheering on new lines as they increase availability and expand their size ranges. However, there’s one dilemma I have somehow not thought of. More »
