  • The Jessica Simpson Epidemic

    After years of slipping through the media cracks, Jessica Simpson is more famous now than ever. And why? The girl <gasp!> gained weight. I mean, think about it: what has J. Simps really been doing with herself, career-wise? Not a whole lot. Instead, the poor girl has been a victim of heartbreak, failed endeavors, and more media scrutiny than any person deserves.

  • The Know: Luxury Designers Go Plus Size!

    If you love fashion, you know what it's like to count down to Fashion Week, excited to watch the trends for next year come parading down the runway and trying to envision how you're going to interpret the style and make it your own. And then you look forward to said new trends hitting the shelves, combing through the racks and trying them on.

  • Fashion Designers Embrace the Curvy Girl

    Lane Bryant has turned away from the days when they “called all chubbies” into the store. While they still make fashionable clothes for full-figured women, they are also introducing a hip new line for plus-size teens.

  • Trying to Understand the Curvy Girl Backlash

    We recently ran a series that everyone here at the CollegeCandy offices thought would be an awesome way to give our usually pro-body-acceptance readers a self-esteem boost. But instead Celebrating Celebrity "Flaws" turned into a body-bashing he-man-woman-hater's club. We didn't see that coming.

  • Weekly Wrap Up: Summer Is Happening So Fast!

    Can anyone believe we're nearing the end of the second week of June? It seems like just yesterday we were packing up, hugging our BFFs goodbye and settling back into our childhood bedrooms. And now summer has come upon us so quickly I haven't even had time to go swimsuit shopping! We've even already had the MTV Movie Awards, which means the 4th of July is just around the corner.

  • Duke It Out: Plus Size

    In the last year or so there's been a big upswing in "awareness" about plus-size models. They've always been around, but they suddenly started getting a lot more attention for being their bold, beautiful selves. Of course, there's always a backlash, like a study that showed that ads featuring plus size women actually make women feel worse about themselves - so much so that some networks have declined to air commercials by Lane Bryant featuring a plus size model in the company's lingerie.

  • Ask A Dude: Do Guys Like Bigger Girls?

    Dear Dude, I want a boyfriend. I have been single for the last four years, and although there have been opportunities for love to kindle, things just never seem to work out. I think a part of it is my fault. I am very conscious about my weight (I am full-figured). I think I am a very intelligent, funny and generous person, and I have a great circle of friends.

  • 8 Under $20: Alloy

    I'll be honest: I always thought Alloy was for the 12-17 age group, but then I started flipping through their merchandise and realized that they have a ton of cute stuff for us more sophisticated ladies. I mean, how could you not love this dress!?

  • More To Love, or More To Make Fun Of?

    Ever since I heard about this "Bachelor for real people" I was intrigued. Having grown up overweight (and not had my first kiss until the ripe age of 18!), I really got behind a show that didn't focus on looks and really just gave everyone a chance at love. Or as much "love" as you can get by meeting someone through a reality show on Fox.
