For years I've heard plus size women complain that there are no fashion magazines with their bodies in mind. The truth is, there have been. Mode, Grace, Figure... just to name a few. The problem is lack of support. It costs money to produce fashion magazines, often more than what the advertising covers. Fashion spreads and professional looking pages and articles don't come cheap.
I understand that $5, $8, or even $10 is a lot of money to invest in a paper magazine that probably gets recycled after one or two glance overs. But now you have no excuse. Skorch magazine is back with Jessica Kane at the helm. They are bigger and better than ever. And they have gone digital.
For the last few months Jessica has been producing a fabulous fashion magazine that is supplemented with an informative and fun blog. The cost for the digital magazine, which is filled with the latest plus size fashion scoop and fashion spreads that are just as beautiful as the ones you would find at many other fashions magazines, is absolutely nothing. FREE, seriously! There are no excuses for not giving Skorch our support.
If you want plus size fashion magazines then we all have to support the plus size magazines. The opportunity to build something beautiful and lasting is upon us. The new digital format is easy to read online, the pages turn quickly, they can be zoomed in or zoomed out on a specific area of a page to read or see images with little to no effort or thought. Best of all, there is no waste when you are done -- no recycling required.
