Hayley Hasslehoff for Yours Clothing

By now I am sure you have all seen that Hayley Hasslehoff is the face of the Yours Clothing summer collection.

Personally, I love Hayley. When Yours emailed me and asked who I would like to see modelling their range I suggested Hayley, as I am sure a lot of other people did. 

Hayley is a size 16. To me, size 16 is plus size. And definitely is in industry standards! The only difference is most high street stores manufacture and stock up to a size 16 so they have more options that bigger plus size women.

Looking at the Yours Clothing Facebook page, I was totally surprised, (ok, not really that surprised, it is Facebook after all!) to see so many negative comments. Ranging from body shaming, to self projected hatred, to the fact that, god forbid, a British brand should use an American model! I mean, really??? 

I admit, not too many years ago I would have properly been one of those women. I wanted to see the clothes I wanted to wear on a body that looked like mine and only mine. Sadly, it doesn't matter which models plus size brands use, some people won't ever be happy. The models will either be too big, or too small, or not curvy enough, or too tall! 

Yours Clothing is an amazing brand that keep producing fast plus size fashion that I like and that I will keep buying. Of course I would like to see someone who is a size 20 + and my shape modelling, but then someone who isn't that size wouldn't. 
  
Plus size brands will never be able to win. If they use a model that's 'too small' they will be said that they aren't representing their target market. If the model is 'too big', they are promoting obesity. 

That aside, the images of Hayley are stunning and I can't wait until payday!!

  1. The Yours Facebook page boils my piss sometimes. It would be nice if they could remind people of their manners once in a while. As to Hayley, she looks great and seems like a lovely girl so lots of luck to her. x

  2. People are rude if they had a model like Tess Munster they would say too fat and Hayley is too thin! I think a lot of it is their own negative feelings about their bodies and seeing fierce, fashionable, confident women looking happy makes them want to tear them down!
