The Mental Bikini Body

by Asta Nowarra on / Body Positive

I am more than happy to have found 2 incredible girls who create new ideas with me about Body positivity and plus size fashion!
Julia & Jasmin from Les Soeurs Shop in Berlin, the first german concept store by the way, are creative, lovely, fun to work and drink with and most importantly : always up for new ideas!
(as I´m writing this I took over their store while they went to an order meeting 😉 )
Now as we established that those 2 cuties are true gems, I just wanted to share some pictures from the beginning of May, where i was giving a lecture about my own personal way to body positivity, cooperating with Les Soeurs Shop!

12 wonderful women and 1 very special man ( felix my best friend) joined me for champagne and snacks to hear me sharing my ups and downs as a fat gitl.
Takling about struggling as a fat kid in school, your first crush, being rejected and what it can do to a person to be rejected because of their weight, tips on how to work on a better body image, a better relationship to your own body and how I started my blog.
And it wouldn´t be an evening with me without talking about sex – of course 😀

Tiffany from Wundercurves also joined us and made some wonderful pictures!! Thanks girl – I´m happy to see you any time!!

In case one of you guys is interested in joining the discussion or is just looking for some comfort by hearing that someone else went through the same things, had the same fears and doubts or is looking for some inspiration in any way – just hit me up and me and Les Soeurs Shop will repeat this wonderful and emotional happening!!

Here some pictures (all pictures taken by Tiffany from Wundercurves )

Fat Girls and Music Videos

by Asta Nowarra on / Body Positive

Early february this year, I was asked to be part of a music Video (thanks Tanja from Kurvenrausch Model Agency for suggesting me )

And as I´m a fat confident girl with tons of swagger – everyone knows – exactly what they ( and by THEY I mean the band The BossHoss and the Berlin based production company Katapult Movieproductions ) were looking for! After sending the production company a short video of me dancing in underwear to Justin Timberlake´s „Senorita“, which was obviously good enough to get the part, I went to the outfit fitting on a relatively sunny sunday morning.
Meeting the band,the manager and the director, trying on different styles and opening eyes to how difficult it is to find outfits for plus size models, was super interresting and fun!
The next morning however, I woke up with the biggest cold sore Ive had ÍN YEARS – mind you I haven´t had any in years – but of course the day before the video shoot 😀
Luky me, we´ve had the best make up artists ever, so with a ton of foundation, patches and what not, we managed to hold that lip broccoly down 😀
The video shoot was just amazing! I was super happy to find out quite early that 2 of my plus size gal pals where part of the video too : Christine Wolke and Dominique Esterlich Those two funny babes really made the long day of dancing, twerking, sweating, laughing and talking weird stuff, very special!
So If you wanna see me and my homegirls shaking out asses, washing a horse, me riding a rocket and poledancing, then just check out this crazy video by The BossHoss called I LIKE IT LIKE THAT(international) and I LIKE IT LIKE THAT(germany)
Yes! fat girls are sexy too !

PLUS Model Magazine featured

by Asta Nowarra on / Featured

At the beginning of this month I was honored by being featured in PLUS Model Magazine´s  9th anniversary Issue !
Seing myself next to those gorgeous babes such as Stina, Cynthia, Margot or Thera  – I felt quite overwhelmed!
Thank you PLUS Model Magazine for making myself being proud of what I´m doing!

 

„Fierce and confident plus size fashion is long overdue because women of all shapes and sizes are allowed to dress and feel sexy
by expressing themselves through fashion.
Being a plus size fashion blogger means being a big part of introducing a new and powerful idea of beauty to the fashion worl!
Empowering women all over the world to embrace their bodies and show their very own way of confidence, also through fashion,
is something that pushes me to not give a damn about any beauty standards at all!“
