Boutique W is synonymous with Body Positivity. We offer clothes for women of ALL shapes and sizes (xs to 3x in case you didn't know). After all, shopping should be a positive experience where a woman leaves feeling good about herself. That's why when we heard that Project Runway Season 16 is using models up to a size 22 we were thrilled.
In a recent Entertainment Tonight interview host Heidi Klum made the announcement adding that the show should have done this years ago.
Klum then shut down naysayers with this statement: "This is the real world. Not everyone is, you know, runway figure or what the runway figure used to be. You have to dress real people, and real people come in different sizes: short, tall, more voluptuous, skinny," she explained. "There is many of us, and so a real designer needs to know how to do that. So get with it."
Ms. Klum, we couldn’t agree more!
