ATCL’s Top 20 Curvy Covers

The plus size world has been making waves through the years in fashion, entertainment, the business industry and beyond. And it looks like they are not going away anytime soon.

I’d like to think that plus size ladies are taking over the fashion industry having already carved a niche for themselves. This has gone beyond merely being vocal and speaking out but they have gone on to organize world class shows such as Full Figured Fashion Week, CurvyCon, runway modeling, starring in movies and covering the pages of magazines especially those which have previously featured size 12 ladies.

Plus size celebrities such as model Ashley Graham; Tess Holiday; Tara Lynn , Actor Melissa Mccarthy; Queen Latifah; Rebel Wilson; Gabby Sidibe and singer Adele have all graced the covers of many prominent magazines such as Vogue, ELLE, People, DARE, Vanity Fair, PLUS and so much more
