    Modcloth Goes One Step Further And Puts Its Employees In Swimsuit PHOTOSHOOT




    Online retailer Modcloth has abided by the sentiment that "real is beautiful" for quite some time. The company has been praised for offering a broad range of sizes to its customers and pledging to stop photoshopping its models. Now, Modcloth has gone even further by deciding to use its own employees to show off its latest swimwear options.

    The company plucked six employees and had them pose in a variety of styles. The photos will run as promotional images on the website, appear on its blog and will be featured in upcoming Modcloth style stories.

    HuffPost Style chatted some with the gorgeous women of all shapes and sizes who participated in the shoot including Allison Franks (second from left) and Ingrid Taller (first from right).

    As with Modcloth's previous photo shoots, the idea stemmed from a continued desire to connect with its shoppers.
    Depicting a realistic image of women has long been a goal of the brand, a notion that made Taller want to pose for the shoot.

    "Being on the larger side of plus-size, I was really excited about this opportunity. I'm an apple shape, which is not something I see everyday in the media. I know it takes a lot of courage to get in front of a camera in general, but to get in front of one knowing that not a lot of people have represented your body before is really exciting," she said.

    Franks, who was pregnant at the time, said her decision to get involved in the shoot stemmed from a feeling of true support. "It was definitely hard for me to make the decision as the pregnant one. My shy self immediately said, 'No, I can't do this.' But Modcloth supports its customers for who they are, and I'm proud to represent that," she said.

    Head over to Modcloth to shop the styles above.

    Did people actually think that the clothing designers were the good looking ones? Of course they use hot models to show off their clothing lines. When is the last time you saw a television show with a bunch of ugly people hanging out together? It's advertising people.

    Have you walked the streets of any major city on a sunny afternoon during lunch? The whales come out of their offices fighting for position at the food carts!

    Having the "pleasure" of traveling a lot with my job I get to see a lot of downtown action. Generally the further you travel NE the heavier the female workforce.

    :spaz::hilarious:


    This topic could start a whole new thread. What is the heaviest girl you've given a toss to?

    can't wait for the message board women to finish serving breakfast and getting around to answering you on this one.
