TAKE THE FIRST STEP SUBSCRIBE TO OUR FASION INITIATIVE
Bella Petite Magazine (daily) advocates for petite women. Petite women need to do what the 5’7″+ tall full-figured ladies have done and that is to demand acceptance and recognition, so retail cares about the dollars we spend to buy their goods. Become a subscriber or a model member. Model members are eligible to win magazine covers and editorial campaigns to earn tear sheets that help models build a legitimate portfolio. Actresses become members. so they have increased and ongoing exposure to keep them relevant with fans and for the tear sheets too!
A few years ago, V Magazine declared “2010 as the year of the curvy woman!” This seemed like great news at the time, until we realized that “body weight and height” only applied to the 5’9″ gorgeous glamazons at either a size 12 plus, or she’s extremely thin. The problem with this is neither look is acceptable for us because it’s not a true representation for beauty and fashion simply because majority of women do not identify with either look.
The fashion and modeling industry treats petite women as though we don’t exist, when in fact we do exist and as the stats show 70% of all women are 5’5″ tall and shorter. Petite women are thin, curvy and plus sized. In fact, 47% of all women are plus sized petites at (5’6″ and shorter).
Only 3% of women are the actual prescribed preferred look of fashion (5’9″+) and sometimes we see plus size models too.
Bella Petite has emerged as the industry trendsetter. The magazine features petite models on the covers and in editorial campaigns through a model search. The founding editor Ann Lauren also produces live televised events and a radio show.
Today petite women are fashion recognizable because of Bella Petite Magazine, the model search and the fashionable editorials! Consider this: when you see a “petite clothing” advertisements in other magazines the clothing is rarely featured on a petite model (or celebrity, nor does it indicate it’s petite) doesn’t that seem like a bad way to advertise to petite female consumers who hold the greatest buying power? We want and need to see how clothing looks on a petite model to accurately judge the look and fit on our petite frame.
The 5’9″ full figured glam women have kicked and screamed their way into the industry and they’ve arrived. You will too if you apply the same efforts! SUBSCRIBE TO US
