At Cambio, we're all about loving the skin we're in, and that means we love clothing lines that help us do just that.
Shot for @theuntitledmagazine #GirlPower issue in stores now ✌🏼️ This is my body with very minimal photoshop, but make no mistake that I think photoshop is an essential part of my industry. When I first started modeling I wasn't as comfortable with my arms or tummy but now, I love all of it 💯! Most of the images you see daily in the media, magazines, etc have been photoshopped & you would have no idea. I don't believe in using it to distort someone's body or make them slimmer, but to smooth lines in clothes, or amping up the colors.. Hell yes! Have any of you ever used a filter on Instagram? *gasp!* Thats the same thing. As a model I have ZERO control over how a photo is edited or the final result but work with the best in the industry & stand by my work👌🏽 So yes, you can #effyourbeautystandards by using photoshop, makeup & a wind machine. At the end of the day, I'm doing the impossible by even being a model in the body I'm in. It's about being unapologetically YOU.. Whatever that means 💋📷@indiracesarine
Tess Holliday, the gorge size-26 model and self-proclaimed "body positivity ambassador," is working on a clothing line to launch next year, according to Seventeen. Tess has modeled in campaigns for H&M and JCPenney, as well as graced the cover of People magazine. She also founded the hashtag #EffYourBeautyStandards to encourage everyone to embrace their bodies.
With this new line of clothing, Tess hopes to create pretty things in sizes that are seriously lacking in the marketplace. "So many stores cut off at size 16. There needs to be more sizes," Tess told the HuffPo UK.
While you wait for what's sure to be an adorable line, online and bricks-and-mortar retailer Fashion to Figure just released a full denim collection that goes up to size 26, including boyfriend, jegging, skinny and bootcut styles that retail for totally affordable prices, starting at $36. FTF was founded by the two great-grandsons of Lena Bryant, a dressmaker whose business sewing maternity and plus-size garments became the chain store known as Lane Bryant today.
"Denim is...the fastest growing item in the plus fashion market," says Michael Kaplan, FTF CEO and co-founder. "Our product team spent a year working on the fit."
With more and ore plus-size clothing lines hitting the market, it gives us all the feels to see body positivity becoming a trend that's here to stay.
