We have certainly weighed in (pardon the pun) over this debate a few times ourselves, but the fires are once again being stoked, presently from an ad plus-size retailer Lane Bryant recently launched. Their new #ImNoAngel intimate couture campaign features plus-sized models Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Justine Elly Mayday (and a host of others) appearing in a Cass Bird photo-spread showing lots of themselves in the Lane Bryant new Cacique undies line. One might recall Ashley Graham executing quite the positive ‘you go girl’ historic step appearing as she did as the first-ever plus sized model in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo-spread in this year’s issue (see our reporting on that here). Or the great big backlash over Victoria’s Secret’s “Perfect Body” campaign, where both Dear Kate and Curvy Kate (these two ‘Kate’s’ are not sisters) created parodies of the V.S. add. The debate rages so heatedly actually, to what is the perfect body, if there is a perfect body, should there be a perfect body that even Yahoo Style is asking this week: https://www.yahoo.com/style/why-the-world-is-turning-against-victorias-secret-115870343048.html.
Let’s hope nobody is actually turning against V.S. We’d like to think there is room enough for everyone…even in latex fashions. Our sizes run from S to 3x (see here) and we also offer custom-made possibilities so you can fashion and fit a Dawnamatrix fantasy wardrobe piece to any specification-be it color, size, shape, texture-that you see fit.
We certainly agree with what Lane Bryant said about their new campaign:
“For too long, the idea of sexy has been defined in one way, by one type of woman. Our Cacique girls are saying #ImNoAngel because today we know sexy comes in many shapes and size. Cacique flatters and accentuates all kinds of sexy.”
But from Victoria’s Secret to Curvy Kate to Dawnamatrix you’ll find a variety of ‘perfect’ bodies everywhere, we feel.
