Beauty With Plus is more than a blog therefore no surprise that I never describe myself as a blogger. It is a mission, a belief, a cause which affects every single woman who needs more self-confidence and who is in need of a healthy body image. I started spreading this mission within my own community of fellow plus size women whom I try to help in every possible way. Fashion occasionally appears on my website too however the main focus is on the soul which is frequently damaged by altered images transmitted by the media.
I do not want to offend photographers as Photoshop is a useful tool to fix the lights on a picture but unfortunately they fix the bodies too – wonder what the reasons are behind. Is it the client, the magazine or the fashion house who commands?
My dream was always to create a group project involving members of my community who felt like meeting me and spending some time together while we talked, laughed and my dear photographer friend, Gábor Stiglincz took some great pictures of us. Expressing a deeper thought and our unity, we were wearing custom made T-shirts (done by Pink Lemon Fashion) with our message to the world: „Not Photoshopped”.
This T-shirt reflects the values of Beauty With Plus: without any slimming or other alterations we are who we are and we love the skin we live in. We are joyful, happy and we are the proof that every bodyshape can be loved and can exist next to each other. The world is a diverse place, lets celebrate our diversity!
Thank you for all my Beauties who joined me in this adventure and you can be sure, this is only the beginning!
