Target Commits to Size Inclusivity for Latest Swimwear Campaign

Target really seems to be taking the criticism about its former lack of clothing options for plus-size women to heart. The retailer added a bevy of plus options to its Lilly Pulitzer collaboration and also added  Ava + Viv, an entire range of plus clothing to the roster. Now, Target is doubling down on the size inclusivity angle with a new swimwear-focused video.

The retailer tapped Zanna Roberts Rassi for the Target Loves Every Body campaign, in which she helps four bloggers find the perfect swimsuit. Everything Curvy and Chic‘s Chantè Burkett, My Style Diaries‘ Nikki Minton, Fabulatina‘s Nashelly Messina and Simply Stylist‘s Sarah Boyd were tapped to model swimsuits, representing a diverse range of body types. Taking into consideration what each woman wanted to show off and which parts of their bodies they felt insecure about, they were matched with a swimsuit that made them feel sexy, confident and most of all – stylish. It is certainly a step in the right direction for Target, who seems keen on emphasizing its newly-established size inclusiveness, and it couldn’t come at a better time. There is a lot of money to be made in the world of plus-size fashion and if you’re delivering items that are as stylish as they are flattering, you can tap into an enormous market.

Watch each woman find her perfect swimsuit in the video above.

The Lovely Amilna Estevao Stars on T Magazine’s Beauty Issue (Forum Buzz)

If there’s one thing we learn each time a magazine cover surfaces on our forums, it’s that the most successful are always straightforward, effortless and unpretentious. T Magazines (from The New York Times) annual beauty issue certainly wins the race with its unassuming cover and we’re loving it. Amilna Estevao stars on the issue due out June 14 and is joined by the likes of Amber Valletta, Andreja Pejic, Aya Jones, Edie Campbell, Estella Boersma, Fei Fei Sun, Julia Bergshoeff, Liya Kebede, Mica Arganaraz & Stella Tennant for the feature spread. Diversity? Check. Simplicity? Check. Our approval? Check.

“Beautiful ed and cover. The cover even manages to feel summery – is it the peach and blue font?” asked t-tex, sharing her enthusiasm right away, kicking us off on a positive.

“Fantastic cover, ed and casting. T Magazine slays lately, a lot of fashion mags *cough*Vogue*cough* can sit down and take notes,” pointed out Vitamine W.

Sharing the same sentiments was Cosmic Voices: “Great cover. For the first time in a long time I actually enjoy the selection of images in color as opposed to the black and white!”

“Wonderful cover and ed. Love the cast!” declared Nepenthes.

Also showing the cover some love was TeeVanity. “Wonderful that they put her on the cover, she is beautiful,” he said.

Benn98 felt the same, adding, “Striking cover! All the girls are looking lovely, but Julia, Fei Fei and Stella are my favorites.”
