Bombshell Magazine May 20, 2007

Bombshell Magazine- The Curvy Chick Magazine


Bombshell Magazine is an online and print magazine for the plus-sized woman.  They have articles on Health & Beauty, Style & Fashion, Love & Romance, Home & Living, and People & Entertainment. Their new issues come out once every 2 months, (like most plus-size magazines seem to…that needs to change).


They also offer “Bombshell Girl” for younger curvy chicks, and even have a “Bombshell Bride” issue.


I’ve been able to find Bombshell in Books-A-Million, and one particular grocery store, so it may not be too hard to come by, so keep an eye out for it. You can of course also obtained a subscription on the site.




Interested in modeling? Be interested in Venus Imaging! May 18, 2007

Venus IMagaing

Venus Imaging is a nothing less than FABULOUS site for any overweight woman. It’s actually (for me personally) the BEST resource for those interested in plus-size modeling. They offer realistic advice and standards needed to be a plus-size model. Though this is how the site and company started out, they’ve grown to be much more.

They now have their own magazine, named Venus Divas, addressing modeling, dating, events, contests, and fashion for the plus-size woman. They continue to have modeling contests as well. I encourage you to join for free, so you can get involved with the blogs and forums.

They also produce Plus , a magazine strictly dedicated to plus modeling worth checking out!

BBW Magazine

BBW Magazine has been brought back to life, and looks to be reincarnated all together. BBW Magazine used to be in print, but unfortunately failed, and the company folded. It’s now back, updated, contemporary, and in contrast, is now completely online and NOT in print.

It has a thorough list of article subjects from Beauty, to Fitness, to Work. They even have an online store consisting of resources for BBWs including how to find the perfect fit of clothing and being plus-size and pregnant. In addition, they have a regularly updated blog written by a plus-size woman.


Figure Magazine

Figure Magazine

Figure Magazine, is both a printed and online magazine “celebrating the plus-size woman.” It’s basically like that of any other women magazine, but obivoulsy geared towards the plus-size ladies with beauty, health, fashion, food, entertainment, and relationship articles. All models used in the magazine are plus-sized.

What’s nice about this magazine, is it does have some pretty good distribution unlike a lot of plus-size oriented magazines, and can be found in most grocery stores and bookstores. They also have a great and active message board online. The only complaint I would have to make, is they only produce ONE issue every 2 months. But hey, the magazine’s got to start somewhere.
