September Plus Size Community Highlights

It seems that every month our amazing UK plus size community are out there doing incredible things, and September was no different! There’s so much to share, I’ll jump right in.

MYM MAKES ‘YOU CAN BE BRAVE TOO’ TO CELEBRATE TALL PLUS SIZE WOMEN OF COLOUR

Featuring entirely non-models, MYM created this beautiful film to challenge perceptions of plus size women, and to push the industry to examine it’s own prejudices and misgivings, particularly the lack of racial diversity in plus size fashion.

CHLOE IN CURVE JOINS THE BBC THE SOCIAL TEAM

Chloe Elliott joined the BBC The Social team, to produce content for their social media! She’s their new Body Image Contributor and we can’t wait to see what she makes next.

MICHELLE CHANTELLE HOPEWELL FOR HUFFPOST UK

SMB’s own Michelle Hopewell published a piece called ‘Ignorance is not bliss’ with Huffington Post UK. Michelle writes about her experiences as a black woman in the UK, and the stereotypes and racism she has faced, and her determination for a better future. It’s something we should all read and take to heart, and use to constantly question our own privilege.

Queen of SMB Georgina Grogan was featured in a BBC documentary about Generation Z, and the misconceptions we have about 16-22 year olds. It features a diverse group of young people and it was fab to see GG feature!

ROSIE RED CORSETRY USES GEORGINA HORNE AND OLIVIA CAMPBELL AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

Rosie Red has always been incredible for featuring their designs on plus size bodies, and to see them use two plus size babes on the runway at LFW is incredible! They both looked incredible and Rosie Red’s designs are the real stuff of dreams.

BETHANY RUTTER ON WHY BANNING SIZE 0 MODELS DOESN’T HELP

It seems that Bethany is always writing really important pieces and raising issues in thoughtful ways, and this piece on banning size 0 models for The Guardian is no exception. Her calls for true diversity and inclusivity are something we should all be striving for in the fashion industry.

BECKY BARNES ON LORRAINE

It seems our plus size babes took over our TVs this month! Becky was featured on Lorraine after the viral story of a complaint about a teacher a parent felt was too fat to teach their child.

CALLIE THORPE FOR ASOS

ASOS are working really hard to be more diverse and show their clothing and beauty on different bodies, and honestly this video they made with UK blogger extraordinaire Callie Thorpe is too adorable.

And as is our new tradition, we’re going to finish our round up with some of our favourite photos of our UK plus size babes from September!

Feeling myself in this amazing Jasmin set from @tuttirougelingerie sister range Roguette. Affordable stylish and the fit is spot on. Felt absolutely incredible and the set is perfect for every day but adding a little bit of sexy to make you feel confident for the day ahead. If you're anything like me wearing matching underqear automatically lifts my mood and sets me right for the day β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #postitives #plusfashion #plussize #bbw #london #psblogger #curves #plus #thisisplus #lblogger #honourmycurves #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #bodypositive #justmegorgeous #selflovebringsbeauty #curseofcurves #curvesfordays #iamsimplybeautiful #styleadvice #sexystateofmind #theconfidencecorner #bloggerstyle #volup2isdiversity #tuttirogue #roguette #lingerie #tuttiroguelingerie

And of course, on the 14th of September, She Might Be turned one year old! Georgina and Daisy wrote up a fantastic piece about why SMB is so awesome, featuring some of our most popular articles, and we all received a custom illustration from Sophie as a ‘birthday present’. Suffice to say September was a very exciting month for all of us here at SMB!
