I am so inspired by these girls and their rising place in the fashion industry!
These women are redefining modeling and we can say it is about time ! It is not all about being skinny with no meat on our bones anymore..
And not just pretty faces ! These models have gorgeous bodies, and they show the world women can be sexy at any size !
Thanks to these amazing women, people aren't so shocked anymore to see fuller figures in the media, and we can only hope that little by little, these beauties will embody the new canons of beauty of our time, and so will we ;)

Denise is currently the face of Swedish brand Zizzi clothing. She has worked for many of the most famous Plus-Size brands like Forever 21, Nordstrom, or Lane Bryant. When you google plus models, her face is everywhere. She is also the first plus model to open and close for a straight-size show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week (in September 2014).
She succesfully and actively helps women to love themselves as they are.
I love the headline of her website that says a lot about her: "Helping girls love their bodies one picture at a time." Denise Bidot

With her size 26, Velvet d'Amour is a super-plus-size model, who walked the runway at 38 yo and 300 pounds for both Jean-Paul Gaultier and John Galliano! She is beautiful and an amazingly strong and passionate woman! She is an artistic and engaged woman. She voices loud her thoughts about the fashion industry, as she did in that photo from 2007 where she wore a shirt that read "Please feed the models" in reaction to the death of 2 models who died of bulimia/anorexia.
“The women we hold as icons of beauty are not happy. And if they’re not happy, who is happy?” she says to Bustle.
D'Amour is also a photographer and an actor.
Georgina, 23, is the first ever face of Torrid. She is definitely one of the Plus-Size models who are changing the game.
"When plus models are in magazines or campaigns, it's the biggest news. We'll only know we're on the right track when it just becomes normal—it shouldn't be so exciting that we made it, you know? But I can already feel the change. When I was a kid, I was big and couldn't buy anything. Now there are tons of lines targeted to plus-size girls." she said in a Teen Vogue interview.
