  1. I actually am looking for plus size models. I have a website, http://www.plussizemuslimah.com, and we need new catalogue shots that are more high end, as well as lifestyle shots. We are looking for any height 12/14 or tall 16/18. They are difficult to find in Sacramento, CA where we are from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hey!
    I really love what you ladies are doing here. i have struggled with my self image for as long as i can remember. The constant teasing at school, the endless nights filled with tears and resentment.
    I have recently learned to embrace my curves as something positive and inspirational. I know there are plently of women out there with my same story.
    please help me reach those beautiful women so that i can inspire them and allow them to see the beauty in all of them.
    Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

  4. Hi Angela and Elizabeth,

    I work for the agency that represents maurices’ social media. We’re launching a modeling contest that embraces women of every shape and size this month, and we’d love for readers of Plus-Size Models Unite to be some of the first entrants!

    maurices Main Street Model Search: http://www.mauricesmainstreetmodel.com/
    We’re looking for 12 real girls in all sizes from across America who embody what the company is all about: fashion, fun and giving back. Women are invited to enter online for the chance to model for maurices and win fabulous prizes, including a photo shoot in at an iconic U.S. destination and $7,500 for a charity in their hometown. Last year’s contest was amazing – check out the winners here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1m4Dpj6h2As&feature=youtu.be

    Since your Plus-Size models unites encourages people to embrace the beauty in women of all shapes and sizes, would you be interested in sharing maurices Main Street Model on your blog? We choose your blog because you encourage self-empowerment and confidence for aspiring models. This is something your readers won’t want to miss!

    We’re taking submissions from January 16 to February 13, and we want as many women as possible to enter the contest. I’d be happy to provide some content to help you share the contest with your readers, including pictures and videos of last year’s models, as well as arrange an interview for you with Christopher Straub (our celebrity judge), a maurices representative or one of last year’s models. We also plan to share our favorite blog posts with our 226,000+ Facebook fans and roughly 1,700 Twitter followers.

    Please let me know if you’re interested by Friday, January 13. We’d love if you could post by Tuesday, January 31 to allow women enough time to enter the contest.

    Hope to hear from you very soon.

    Thank you!
    Ericka Olin, on behalf of maurices

  5. Hi,

    My name is Amanda Kidd and I am a frequent reader of your blog. I am also a blogger who writes on lifestyle and health. I would love the opportunity to guest post for your readers and I have few ideas which I think would go down really well.

    I can see the following two possibilities:
    1) I can suggest you few topics related to your site theme. You can choose any one out of them, and then I can submit the final article in a day or two.
    2) Or you can suggest me a specific theme you would like me to write on.

    All I would require is li’l credit in author’s bio at the end or beginning of the post (as per your editorial guidelines).
    Let me know if this works well with you too.


  6. Hello,

    I want to introduce you to Moffily.com. The creators of Moffily wanted to make a different plus size website–one that not only captures the global trends in plus size fashion, but one that also captures the collective spirit of plus size women everywhere. From our feedback, we know that women around the world are marginalized by the fashion industry and Moffily wants to find out all the reasons why. Moffily aims to build a collective identity for the contemporary curvy women–so that they can better challenge the fashion industry as one.

    However, Moffily is not just about social change, it is very much about fashion. We are always trying to identify cutting edge contemporary designers from all over the world. We take red-carpet looks and recreate them using the brands featured on our website. Links to where you can shop for the brand are posted for each designer. We also know that fit is the number one priority, so size guides are posted for each designer. We do our best to make sure the information we provide you is up to date and correct.
    We encourage you to check out our site at http://www.Moffily.com.

    Hi there! I am so on board with this movement of Healthy is the New Skinny. I wanted to share my articles & radio shows I’ve been a part recently somewhat trying to promote the message of healthiness; particularly when an organization is promoting healthy being defined by a one-dimensional number (& an unrealistic to measuring healthy) like Body mass index (BMI). You can Google me, Lynae Remondino, to see the articles (particularly the one that ran on http://www.aol.com for a couple days) & recordings to the radio shows I did last week. I’d love to hear your opinions on the subject.

    Anyway, love the message relating to healthiness. I have always said I’m a walking spokeswoman for curvy healthy women. Not everyone wants to be a size 2 and if you are healthy, happy & confident in your own skin, I say own it! Congrats on speaking up! Ciao for now, Lynae
