Within its first 6 months of being live, is proving to be a powerful resource to aspiring Plus Size Models through the education and inspiration held within its articles, interviews, and Tweets on how to succeed in the industry.

Closing out the year 2011 with being live for just 6 months, is inspired by the many comments of appreciation from visitors to make 2012 an even better year for delivering information and inspiration to aspiring plus size models. One way that will continue to inspire is by featuring up and coming Plus Size Models varying in age, size, and genres but all having determination, resiliency, and a desire to make a difference in the modeling field.

“A feature that stands out in my mind,” says Desiree Alysse, Founder of, is that of a young woman who not only grew to appreciate her curves but also her hair. For her, modeling wasn’t about trying to conform to a mold. She didn’t desire to look like anyone - just herself. I think that type of independence is rare, and I love to feature it on the site. That is very inspirational. I’d really like to see this section of the site grow extensively in 2012 so that each aspiring model can find someone they relate to and who gives them that extra boost of confidence that this is something they can do also.”

For advice on how to succeed in the industry, has primarily turned to plus size model, actress, and style consultant Joy Ashley as a contributing writer. From choosing the right clothes for your body to what to pack in your model bag, Joy has given aspiring Plus Size Models an extensive amount of useful information.

One of the great pieces of advice provided by Joy was: “Getting involved with local talent shows is a way to help an aspiring plus size model build her career,” says Ashley in her article Creating Success by Creating Opportunity. She continues, “The experience of being onstage is invaluable. These kinds of shows teach the art of showmanship and flash, which will come in handy when modeling for a professional show. Though the flash required for a talent show may not be required during a modeling assignment, the energy behind it and the performance training will help you tremendously.” Founder Desiree not only has longevity in mind but also innovation. “Along the lines of remaining true to the initial focus of being a resource for aspiring plus size models, I’d like to see the site take on some new challenges and creative ways for educating and inspiring. There are a few ideas floating around, but nothing that can be made public just yet.”
