Apple Bottom

I was reading some of my gossip websites and came across the new add for Apple Bottom. The first thing I saw was a model that had the curves and the body that I feel real Plus Size women have! A lot of other plus size clothing companies get models that to me are to skinny to be considered plus size. I can hardly shop online and see a model of true size, this gets hard because I cant in vision myself wearing the pieces of clothing that they are modeling. WHY? Because there body does not even come close to matching mine. Isn’t that the whole point of a model, to show how the clothing may look on me. How can a girl that wear a size 12 show me a girl that wears a size 20 how I may look in a dress……THEY CANT. Model Kai Morae is Apple Bottoms first Plus Size Model, and I hope for other companies as well!!! I feel she will make my shopping experience online or with Apple Bottom easier!

Beautiful No Matter What Size

Recently read this quote below from Andy Warhol. I have been a fan of his for more than 10 years. His sense of humor is beyond unique. His art in my mind was impeccable. The quote states "why does beauty have to be decided from the media? this quote is so true…. Why cant a girl with curves be just as beautiful as the girl that is skinny. Why must beauty be one size, color or shape. And if a girl loves her curves why must she change it, why cant she be happy with her appearance. Is it wrong? For a lady to be curvy. I don’t think so! We are all beautiful in our own unique way , my mother would always say.

More of what Andy Warhol had to say!
“Weight isn’t important the way the magazines make you think it is. I know a girl who just looks at her face in the medicine cabinet mirror & never looks below her shoulders, & she’s four or five hundred pounds but she doesn’t see all that, she just sees a beautiful face & therefore she thinks she’s a beauty. & therefore I think she’s a beauty, too, because I usually accept people on the basis of their self-images, because their self-images have more to do with the way they think than their objective-images do. Maybe she’s six hundred pounds, who knows. If she doesn’t care, I don’t.”
Andy Warhol.
