SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"What do I like about being an SSBBW? There are a couple of things that come to mind. I love that SSBBW's seem to represent all the goodness and kindness of the human race. We exude love; love for people, love for food, love for life. Also, on a personal note, I have found an advantage to being an SSBBW. Our society is shallow. Putting looks and thinness above all other qualities. As an SSBBW, we have a way of weeding out those shallow people, and find the "good" people; the people that dont care about size, and see us for the people we are inside." ~ Ceci [SSBBW]

Fat Fashionista Alert! A New Magazine for Large, Lovely Ladies

Voluptuous. Voluptueux. VolUp2. The first two are often defined as " suggesting sensual pleasure by fullness and beauty of form" in both English and French, respectively. The last is the name of a new online fashion magazine created by plus-sized supermodel, Velvet d'Amour. All three terms are used to represent the lusciousness that is the fuller, fatter female form. Along with highlighting BBWs, you will find others who are also marginalized by the larger fashion community. If these facts are not enough to piqué your interest…there is one more goodie. The 320 page extravaganza is available FREE online at VolUp2.com.

Premiering online in February 2012, d'Amour has stated that her purpose in starting the magazine was to create a "visual celebration of full-figured beauty, combined with a self-affirming message of inspiration." The American-born haute couture model has turned photographer in recent years and has quite a résumé. Her credits include runway work for John Paul Gautier and John Galliano and printwork in Vogue Italia. A full interview with Velvet can be found here.

Future issues will feature themes such as Femininity and Zest, but this first issue of VolUp2 is themed "Ecstasy" and it is definitely on display in the over 30 editorial pictorial features. Be warned, there may be some photos that are NSFW. But this is no fat porn! The photos range from demure to racy and back again. Be prepared to impressed and wowed and to see large women in high fashion shoots formerly reserved for the pages of Vogue or Elle.

With VolUp2, we have a new beautiful expression of who we are as large women. We are strong, sexy, funny, feminine, sassy, bold, shy, loving…just people.

Support this new project by stopping by to read and passing the information along. If we want to see more work like this, we need to make our voices heard and presence felt.

The magazine is looking for contributors. For more information and submission guidelines and opportunities, you can send an email to voluptwo@yahoo.com.
