August News Round Up 2013

Autumn is slowing getting nearer and before we don our jackets and boots, we say goodbye to the summer months with a look back at the month of August and share our highlights from the plus size world.

In celebration of National Underwear Day at the start of August, these lovely bloggers took our gorgeous Gok Wan shapewear range for a blogger challenge review.From top left to right Mel at Gladrags and Handbags, Rachel at A dress is for life, Lorna at Ginger Pear Drop, Bethany at Arched Eyebrow, Claire at A Monkey Fatshionista and Mhairi at Lily Bobombs.


Also check out the reviews from Em at Boombands blog and Gemma at Fat Frocks.

In the news:

Our very own plus size model Candice Huffine, and actress Gabourey Sidibe were featured in Harper’s Bazaar ‘Singular Beauties’ spread & both look stunning in this high fashion shoot. The spread is filled with diversity, featuring models and actresses of different sizes, ages and ethnicity. Gabourey’s styling sparked a bit of a debate though – what do you make of it? Check it out here.

Simone Charles winner of a plus size modelling competition starred in her first shoot for plus size magazine Slink, wearing our gorgeous Gok Wan shapewear range. She is totally rocking the pool side look!
