I had been in such a snit lately because all of my friends are wearing Lululemon.  There they are working out in their activewear and then running around to do their errands and look so cute.  I refuse to work out in anything hideous!

Well, now we have found the best plus size workout wear and yoga line and wanted to share!   I cannot say enough about this line and look forward to wearing it and offering it to our customers!

Diet supplement company Protein World, has attracted widespread criticism, with billboards which talks about getting beach body ready.  Many billboards have had graffiti written all over them and plus size brands and customers are up in arms amid concern over the advertising’s effect on body image.

This billboard by plus size retailer Simply Be, is a parody of the campaign showing the “curvy” size 14 model Jocelyn Corona in a bikini will be displayed along the escalators and platforms of Knightsbridge station in London.

It is great that companies and plus size women are no longer willing to accept the status quo for defining what is beautiful or in this case, beach body ready.
