When it comes to the Plus size community we have really made some huge strides over the past few years. We now have a wide variety of fashion brands on the market to cater to all of our different styles. Women all over the place are able to move and stride with an air of confidence and generally speaking we are more appreciated for what we have to offer and how we look. The standards of beauty continue to remain pretty much the same though, so when big things happen in our community we celebrate them! One of my fellow blogging sisters Bethany Rutter not only launched a fab collection with Navabi last year. We now have the most amazing little coffee table book ‘Plus+’.

Plus+ By Bethany Rutter

I was extremely honoured and flattered to have been asked to be a part of this book. Bethany has banded together a series of fabulous women from all over the world to highlight their fashion and beauty. Plus+ features women of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds across a varied age demographic. Each woman has their own style and their own way of expressing themselves. It’s great to be able to see so many different looks and styles. If you get hold of this one you will see a little something for everyone. Edgy street fashion, vintage classics, abstract looks, elegant, classy, casual and sophisticated fashion. Each woman has a quote about her style so you get a glimpse of everyone’s personalities too.

The cover art features American fashion blogger and designer Gabi Fresh and the foreword is penned by the ever celebrated Nicolette Mason. Bethany of course speaks about what inspired this book and how it was put together. I guess for me just knowing that a book like this is available gives me reason to smile. If you had asked me a few years ago if this sort of thing was possible I would have laughed in your face! I remember a time when plus size women were scoffed at and our fashion choices and were limited to what I call granny chic! We had nothing but butterfly prints and shapeless sacks to dress ourselves in. Being part of something celebrating us bigger women as sexy, trendy and stylish means more than you could possibly know! Hats off to Bethany for making it happen!

Some of you may remember my reviews of not only the ruffle gingham shirt in these pics but the hot pink shirt Bethany designed.

    It’s so admirable that there are more and more initiatives to take away from the public’s eyes the idea of fashion meaning only skinny girls. The Plus book sounds delightful and how amazing that you got a chance to be part of it!
