    British lingerie and swimwear brand Curvy Kate have given our favourite Disney princesses a make-over, and boy do we love it!

    Curvy Kate specialise in lingerie in cup sizes D-K, that are specially designed for fuller busts. They’re on a mission to get women loving their curves.

    The team claim that they ‘thought it was high time we saw some kick ass Princesses that celebrate diversity and beauty in all forms’. We love their thinking, and the results too!

    The re-vamp includes awesome curves, some sweet tattoos, and a radical hair change for one…


    Snow White’s raven locks are exchanged for some beautiful green mermaid curls


    Princess Jasmine looks badass with her new tatts


    Tiana is rocking her new, fuller figure


    How great does Princess Aurora look in her pink two-set?!


    Belle is given some fuller hips, thighs and an injection of sass


    Pocahontas looks naturally fab in this nude two-piece


    And finally, fresh-faced Ariel rocks this hawaiian style number

    So a big thanks to the Curvy Kate team, for showing the world that princesses are made in every shape and size.

    OKAY I'M ANGRY! If this is not a platform to share your opinions then where else right?! So here it goes, you may have seen Mattel are doing a Barbie version of FRIDA KAHLO, the profoundly inspirational Mexican Artist. Well on the surface it sounds positive – celebrating female cultural icons etc, but it’s in fact not at all what it seems. . . Zac and I adore this woman and are huge fans. Frida Kahlo represented not just a fearless and boundless expression of individuality, but she stood firmly on the side of those in society that were forgotten about. In her art she explored questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. She was simply brilliant, and an inspiration to all us mothers raising daughters. . . Salma Hayek portrayed her brilliantly in the 2002 Bipoic (please watch it if you haven’t already!) and said Frida was “one of the forces that gave me the determination to pursue my career”. . . On to what Mattel are doing. Firstly – despite what some bloggers like to shill on social media, the Barbie doll is not something positive for any child in my view. It does not represent uniqueness, and when Frida becomes SLIM and more LIGHT SKINNED with LIGHT EYES, that’s when lines are being crossed. This is not just cultural appropriation for commercial gain, but the very colonial re-shaping of identity she stood against. . . LEAVE FRIDA ALONE.
