Lisa Riley Drops 4 Dress Sizes

Plus size actress Lisa Riley is looking fabulous in the current season of Strictly Come Dancing.

The former Emmerdale star has dropped 4 dress sizes since joining Strictly and it certainly shows.

The bubbly actress revealed the gruelling dance training with partner Robin Windsor have caused her to lose an inch from her waist every week.

The star had spoken out earlier about the compliments she's been getting from her stint on Strictly, and even said she's had offers to make her own fitness video.

But Lisa doesn't seem to be keen on that idea, as she said: ‘Why would I want to do that?'

'What do I know about aerobics DVDs? I’m an actress. Who am I to preach at women about what shape they should be?’
Despite the dramatic weight loss Lisa still has lots of lovely curves and is looking stunning both on and off screen lately and is a true curvalicious inspiration.

There is a fantastic article on the Daily Mail website this week about plus size fashion bloggers.
We dont get that much recognition so to find such a great indepth article on a major news site was fantastic.

The article is based around Lesley Kinzel whose blog Two Whole Cakes is soon to be turned into a book, and aims to empower plus-size women.

Lesley shares her style advice on her site, along with authors of similar blogs titled Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes Too, Curves to Kill and Thicker Than your Average Girl, which all give the same message: We're fat, we look fabulous, and you can, too.

Fat is a loaded word, with weight and questions of what constitutes a healthy and attractive body image continuing to be a central discussions in the fashion industry.

Lesley Kinzel hopes to change the way the world views the adjective, seeing it as a fact rather than a word the politically correct tip-toe around, or a word the bullies use to inflict pain much the same of course as myself and my own blog does.
