Chrystal Bougon, the owner of plus-size lingerie store Curvy Girl, is encouraged to see more plus-size models these days, but she thinks it might not be enough. After all, “anything over size 4 is considered plus-size,” she says. And most are photoshopped. She is “constantly asked for pictures of [her] products on 'regular' bodies,” bodies without any airbrushing or editing. In her “Regular Women” campaign, she delivers by ... Read More
  Today, the Huffington Post brought us a lovely dollop of wisdom in the form of men sharing which women's clothing trends they hate the most. Gee, what a thought-provoking and completely valid discussion! I sure do love thinking about all of the women and girls who will forsake their personal style after reading about how some douchebag thinks peplum tops look like maternity wear! Let's take a look at a few of the especially imbecilic gems the menfolk of the ... Read More
Though former fashion-week front row-er Tavi Gevinson doesn't focus much on fashion these days, she's certainly looking most rad in Cole Haan's holiday ad campaign.  The campaign, whose theme is "Talented & Gifted," also features Broadway actors, entrepreneurs, and a 7th grade heavy-metal band (They're called "Unlock the Truth"--I am totally listening to them right now).   Tavi also has a hand-picked gift selection, which you can view here. You know, ... Read More

  BUSTies, you only live once. And it would certainly be a shame to spend your precious time on Earth playing it safe with your fashion choices. Just when you thought YOLO, the acronym that has been a target for ridicule since its conception, was gone for good, the social media phrase has reinvented itself in a way that deserves only applause. African Apparel, a British clothing company, has released a new YOLO shirt with Yoko Ono’s beloved visage ... Read More
This weekend, amidst my hectic schedule of clicking "Next Episode" on Netflix, I was introduced to the app ThirdLove. The just-launched app promises to fit the user for the perfect bra. I have been fitted for a bra in the past--a Victoria's Secret "professional" with a measuring tape and really cold hands curtly informed me I had a wide back and small boobs. But hey, my bras fit.  Nevertheless, I was intrigued by ThirdLove. Thanks to all the reported ... Read More
Elodie Fiers Paris, FranceTell me about what you’re wearing. The sweater is vintage from Etsy—it was a gift. The collar’s from Zara, and it cost around $30. I got the necklace for $2 from a flea market, and the skirt’s from American Apparel, it was about $55. The tights were about $6, and the shoes are Valentino; they were a gift from my boyfriend. The tote is from Etsy, by an illustrator named Julia Pott.  How would you describe your ... Read More
  The Abercrombie brand has been suffering lately, big time. In addition to being what the analyst Richard Jafffe calls “a stale brand” that is incapable of competing with trendier companies, the company, led by CEO Mike Jeffies, has been pretty sexist in their marketing strategies. Girls are taking note; no one wants to buy clothes from a company that sexualizes young girls and “hates fat chicks.”    And we ladies are voting ... Read More
  Women come in all shapes and sizes. Plastic mannequins, on the other hand, rarely do.  The average woman in the UK is a size 16, but most British stores only display size 10 mannequins. The British women’s and equalities minister Jo Swinson has long been combating the narrow focus on thinner, whiter, younger models of feminine beauty in fashion; she writes, “[the image] is reinforced from the catwalks right through to shop ...
