bathing beauties

One of my projects in Vaucluse has been used as the location for a fashion spread in the Australian Women's Weekly.  Shot around the swimming pool, the story features bathing beauties lounging around in their retro swimsuits.  Love your style Women's Weekly.

I've got to say I'm a fan of Australian 'plus size' model Robyn Lawley who features in gorgeous fun and frilly swimsuits by designers such as Jets, Sirens, Colette by Colette Dinnigan, My Sister Pat, Seafolly, Isola by Megan Gale, Palazzi and Betty Diamond.  

But let me put in my twenty cents worth.  I just don't understand why Robyn is called 'plus size'. Measured against whom?  Models and actresses who fail to eat?  She is absolutely gorgeous and healthy-looking with stunning curves.  Why don't they call models and actresses who are not naturally thin and fail to eat 'minus size' instead, and have healthy woman such as Robyn to be considered as the norm (if there even is such a thing).  Well done Women's Weekly for embracing a variety of body types.

Take a look and let me know what you think...
