Kiyonna Veronice Maxi Dress

We're pretty sure the 'maxi' in this Kiyonna Veronica Maxi Dress is referring more to its style than its length. The subtle V-neck is flattering without showin' everything we've got, and the sweet ruching on the top is such an elegant detail! Also, in a truly revolutionary move, Kiyonna's website also has photos of real women who are not models wearing the dress. Check it out!

So, if you have a beautiful face and a nice body and you happen to make a living off of those assets, you're not a real woman? How does that work? Maybe you meant "average women" or "women with different body types"?

Fit and Proud,
even you can't admit that magazines and catalogs are all accurate. While I agree, that models are real women, most advertising is largely photo-shopped, a.k.a. not real!

Can't? Did you mean "can"? And accurate? Did you mean "inaccurate"? Or did you just misuse the word "admit"? And why do you have a comma after "agree"? I'm sorry, Silk. You're obviously not very smart, so I'll try to make it simple for you: Fat women need to stop trying to feel better about themselves by asserting that they are "real women" because of their fat, and that thin women are somehow not real. We're all real. I'm very trim and I've birthed and breastfed three kids. I'm definitely a real woman with womanly parts that are in perfect working order, despite my skinny figure. Find a way to feel good about yourself that doesn't involve putting other people down.

Fit and Proud, if you had only followed the link, you would have seen that there are photos of people who look like real customers wearing the dress, not just perfectly styled/photo-shopped models. This is all the blogger was referring to, not setting up some imaginary dichotomy between real women and women who are not fat.
You are very hostile and overly defensive, and you come off looking very foolish here on top of seeming generally unpleasant.

Hi! Love love love your posts. My question is, I was invited to a black tie function late (its next Saturday, yikes!) and was quick to say I couldn't go because I didn't have anything formal enough. Do you think I could pull this off for a black tie event? Any input is appreciated, thanks!

Ms. F&P! Unacceptable!

I don't take to shaking my finger at readers (or anyone) very often, but your tone is offensive! Please be considerate to the rest of the readers. We all understand your point - that all women are "real", so using that term to describe SOLELY "women with curves" or "plus-sized" is inaccurate and offensive to women of any size, style, religion, lifestyle or etc., etc.

At the moment and in this situation, rather than being a term, the phrase "real women" was used because most people know what we mean. And I'm pledging that we'll try to stop using it like that in the hopes that others will too.

But your anger towards the post, the editor, the other commenters is an unjustified overreaction. In other words...Chill, Money!

P.S. When you tell Silk to "Find a way to feel good about yourself that doesn't involve putting other people down", you should have looked at your own comment - the one in which you nitpicked the framework of her comment and called her "not very smart".

OH! I love this dress, the color is amazing, and the girl wearing it is owning it! I'm thinking my new black cowboy boots would look awesome with this!

Fit and Proud obviously has some body-image issues, despite being in shape, otherwise why attack a website and fellow poster for an innocent comment? We're all smart girls and understand what someone means when they say a "real" woman, as opposed to someone who models for a living. F&P, sorry you're feeling like you need to put other people down in order to feel good about yourself. :(

I love the dress but even the smallest size the offer is too big for me. Lovely style though, I wish it came in smaller sizes!

They sure would, CC! I love the look of maxi dresses and skirts with cowboy boots.
