There are many books published about the plus size as well as plus size fashion and style; several plus size models have published their books, such as “Hungry: a Young Model’s Story of appetite, ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of custom formats” by Crystal Renn.
This year will be no exception – two leaders of plus size modelling industry – Ashley Graham and Tess Holliday announce their true stories of the model’s life in their books.
Ashley Graham published her first book “A New Model” on 9th of May this year – a story of her life. She proves that when it comes to beauty, size is just a number; she is a voice of the body positive movement and an example for all women, regardless of their individual body type, shape or weight.
Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas about body image develop and what we still have to work on. She talks about the fashion industry career in merriment and stress, about her life before modelling and her way to it, about her size without prejudice and about her dreams. She talks about ignoring the strict standards of the industry and the sceptics, who said that she can’t do it. The book is about her successes and failures. Ashley offers support for every woman in order to help her to accept what she is, to strengthen her self-confidence and to be stronger, healthier and more beautiful.
This book is available in e-book format, as well as in Harper Collins publishing home page:
Coming soon! Soon, on August 24 this year, Tess Holliday will offer her first book “The Not So Subtle Art of Being a Fat Girl: Loving the Skin You’re In”. This book is about how to love your body, life and feel comfortable in your own skin. In this book Tess shares her personal story and provides inspiration and advice to anyone who is struggling with their body image as well as helps with some tips.
She talks about how to accept your body, not just how to survive into it, but also how to blossom in it. She talks also about how to plan the way to your strength and beauty. As Tess writes – fat is not equal (≠) with laziness, ugliness, unworthiness, unhealthiness and despair.
