"Curvy Models" at Prada

Feb 26, 2010

First off, I want to applaud Prada for showcasing a variety of body types during their runway show.  And this model is more shapely than your average stick thin, teenage runway model, but if this is what the fashion industry considers curvy, we’re all in trouble.

    I think those clothes look just as good on those models as they do on the negative zero models. I don’t buy the "clothes hang better on a thinner body" BS at all. YOU wear the clothes, not vise versa.

    WOW! Kudos to Prada- but I agree- size 8 is curvy? I guess it could be worse if Prada would have used the "plus size" in lieu of curvy.

    Prada rocks! Finally, we average-sized ladies can get a sense of how runway fashions would REALLY look! Brilliant, just brilliant!

    Scary, indeed, especially as that pic is of Doutzen Kroes, who is a size 4-6! For better or worse, the average American is a size 14. Even for myself, as a busty size 10-12, I find it hard to find good quality, well made, stylish and affordable clothing. It’s difficult to visualize "a look" when all the examples one sees are of size 0-2.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
