Elly Mayday – Plus Size Model

Elly Mayday for Rebdolls

Beautiful, courageous, and sexy are but a few words that help describe this Canadian plus size model.  In 2013 Elly was diagnosed as having ovarian cancer, which she pledged to fight. This decision came despite the fact that doctors had told her that her symptoms were probably due to her size and were not associated with any serious health risk. Acting as her own advocate Elly found doctors who accurately diagnosed the cancer. After that battle, Elly was given the news in 2015 that the cancer that she battled for nearly two years had returned. Once again Mayday chose to fight on despite the tolls she knew it would take in her body and her life in general.

Mayday has worked for many top brands and was featured in the Lane Bryant campaign #ImNoAngel. Currently she is competing in the Panache role model competition. You can read more about the competition there and vote for Elly as well

Elly is 5’8″ tall. Her measurements are chest: 36D, waist: 29″, hips: 45″. She has light brown hair and blue eyes. She wears size 9 shoes.

Olivia Campbell  –  Plus Size Beauty

 

Olivia Campbell Beautiful Model

Olivia Campbell is a delightfully beautiful plus size model from the UK who making big moves of late.  She is relatively new on the scene but she’s not letting that stop her from letting her feelings be known about issues affecting many models and women as they strive just to be themselves in a society that tries to define beauty, style, and fashion by their size.

Here is a moving clip of Olivia as she relates some of her experiences growing up bigger than some other kids her age and the impact it had on her then and now. She also describes how that made her feel then and even now. It is a very tender,  revealing and powerful clip. The best part is how she has changed those negatives into empowerment and positivity. It is most certainly well worth the time to view it. The video is “I’m Not Curvy, I’m Fat: Olivia Campbell” by Style Like You.

Ashley Graham Beautiful Sexy Plus Model

Ashley Graham covers Maxim Magazine

Ashley Graham, curvy plus size model covers Maxim magazine and she does so in a stunning fashion. Graham is fresh off becoming the first plus size model to cover the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Here she flaunts that gorgeous face and body as she poses nude behind a shirt. If it seems that Graham is every where, it’s just about true and somehow there seems to be more in the works. She’s riding the waves that she started with Lane Bryant and Addition Elle, and SwimsuitsForAll(among others) as they continue to swell. But not everyone is happy though  – maybe Cheryl Tiegs isn’t and some recent posters on Graham’s Instagram site have complained that some of the Maxim photos appear to be overly “photoshopped”.

In the mean time things are going great for Graham and those who support diversity in the modeling industry, and that’s a good thing!
