Take a look at this Bettie Page dress â€“ very Joan Holloway. Now take a look at this model. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? An actual model, with an actual belly, in an actual dress. This we get from a national brand â€“ Bettie Page â€“ that has mall stores and everything. They know fat people exist, they will clothe us, and they will show up in public with us. While I had written off Bettie Page because of its limited in-store sizing at the Mall of America, suddenly theyâ€™re not on my â€œOld Navy and J. Jillâ€ shit list. They ARE awesome â€“ we just need to encourage them. Bettie Page, use this model, as she is, more. Use other models that are also big girls. Bigger, even! Why? Because ITâ€™S AWESOME.
So, with that pointed out, I here share some other retro-inspired fun available in plus sizes:
